Limitless design potential with unique colour combinations

One of the most compelling reasons to choose a concrete countertop is the limitless design possibilities. By adding natural pigments, a wide range of colours can be offered. The colours are mixed into the mass of the concrete, creating an evenly coloured stone with subtle cloud formation that is peculiar to concrete.

Seamless integration and flexibility

Kwantz concrete slabs measure 3 metres 26 by 1 metre 38, so in many kitchens the kitchen worktop can be integrated seamlessly. The thin concrete slabs (25 mm) - in contrast to concrete countertops poured on site or other prefabricated countertops - put much less strain on the base cabinets and you do not have to carry them inside during the construction phase. This flexibility makes Kwantz concrete an excellent choice for both renovations and new construction projects.

Adaptation to desired functionality

Besides aesthetics, concrete worktops can be customised to meet your functional needs.
