Are Concrete Worktops fading in popularity?

Concrete worktops have become increasingly popular during recent times – not just in the home but also in kitchens, bathrooms and outdoor areas as well as restaurants and bars. 

There are a number of reasons that homeowners may opt for a concrete worktop. They provide a modern, industrial style to their kitchen but can also be customised to look like granite, marble or even wood as well as being extremely solid and durable. 

However, is the popularity of a concrete worktop starting to fade in favour of quartz worktops that look like concrete?

Are Concrete Worktops Subject to On-going Damage?

Whilst there are a number of advantages that come with a concrete worktop, they come with their fair share of downsides. They may be manufactured to last for years, however, they are prone to staining and require regular sealing to minimise any damage or cracking that can occur from everyday use. Hairline cracks can be a common problem with concrete worktops although occasionally they can become more noticeable and require repairing.

Moulds for concrete worktops are made to cast the shape, which can make production slow and expensive. The sheer weight of the worktops can also mean that sometimes kitchen cabinets or even floors require reinforcements or even replacements to enable it to bear the weight.
