I saw a concrete benchop on Instagram the other day. I was surprised at how different it looked in different shots - kind of like marble.
Awesome job for first time renovators! Maybe you could ask them? Better still, invite them to share their wisdom here on Workshop with us!
Interesting. How are concrete benchtops usually sealed? Concrete is pretty porous isn't it? Would it stain easily?
This is essentially what I'd love my kitchen to look at with some omissions and inmine the sink is on the island while the stovetop is on the wall bench for example.
Also I'm going for white cabinetry and of course the subway tiles for a splashback which runs about 800mm up the wall, inclduding the side walls.
Will be installing downlights over the stivetop area with similar industrial lights over the island as shown in the pic below.
Looks like a great option for those looking for the industrial look. Should also be very durable. We are thinking of using timber benchtops for save cost but have had some people express concern that they won't last.
