Let’s face it. Bench tops aren’t things you replace every day. It’s one of those things that you really want to be sure about before you decide on which type you want. There are a lot of different types of bench tops. For example, marble bench tops, granite bench tops, concrete bench tops etc. But in this blog post, we are going to be discussing the advantages of concrete bench tops. So, without further ado, let’s get to it!
Durability and Strength
Concrete bench tops are really durable and strong. Due to the nature of the material that they’re built with, concrete bench tops resist chips, cracks and scratches. Most concrete bench tops are sealed with a protective layer which is really good at resisting stains. Therefore, if maintained properly, concrete bench tops can last up to 20 years.
Ease of Maintenance
Concrete bench tops are quite easy to maintain. As long as you use trivets when placing hot things on top of them and as long as you are careful while using really sharp knives, your concrete bench top will take care of itself. Wiping with warm, soapy water is the best way of cleaning your concrete bench top. Doesn’t get much easier than that, does it?
Concrete bench tops are much cheaper to install compared to granite or marble bench tops, but have more or less the same properties. In some cases, concrete bench tops might even cost you half of what you would pay for a marble or granite bench top.
