The advantage of concrete kitchen worktops over other materials

Looking for a suitable worktop for your kitchen? In recent years, the choice of materials has increased significantly with mainly new composites, ceramics but also concrete. Are you getting choice stress from all the options? In this blog, we explain how Kwantz concrete behaves and compares to other stones, so that you can make an easier choice

A natural material with a unique touch

When you choose a concrete worktop in the kitchen, you are going for a natural look-and-feel. The stone definitely does not feel like plastic, more so, the special finish actually provides a velvet touch. This puts Kwantz concrete fully in the category of natural stone such as marble, granite and bluestone. Unlike composite and ceramic, a natural stone - after several years of use or before selling your house - can be resanded and cleaned. This gives the material a longer life and you choose a sustainable alternative.

An affordable alternative

Concrete is definitely an affordable option for worktops in the kitchen or bathroom. One of the reasons for this is that this material cures at room temperature and therefore does not need large ovens or heavy printing presses that require a lot of energy. In addition, the basic materials such as lime, clay and sand are available in Belgium, allowing us to work with short supply lines and reduce transport.
