Are you looking for a concrete solution to your countertop needs? Literally. I like to keep up on new and creative trends in home finishes. Even though it's not exactly new, concrete counter tops are not seen very widely. I think they have a great look, and I really like all the customization that's available. 


You can have basically unlimited colors, shapes, edges, and inlays. It's very versatile and durable. The negatives are that concrete is a porous material, and so it needs to be sealed well and re-sealed occasionally. Even then, it's not completely impervious to stains. It can also get a little expensive depending on how many customizations you end up with. 


There are a lot of articles that do a better job of comparing details, as well as providing user experiences. Here are a few I really enjoyed:

All things considered, it's worth looking into if you want something very unique for your kitchen or bathroom.
