Lately stained concrete has entered the design scene for both indoor and outdoor use. Used primarily as decorative flooring we are now witnessing the move to counter tops rivaling the solid surfaces currently being offered (as seen on HGTV).
Concrete is porous and neutral in color thus serving as a blank canvas allowing colors and finishes limited only by your imagination. Staining requires a specific acid mix with colorant plus a sealant for increased durability. You can even embed glass, stone, bottle tops, wine bottle bottoms; just about anything!
We at Creative Design Outdoor display both a hearth (below) and pub table top made from stained concrete. Pricing varies by fabricator/installer and of course any special components. Usually cost is similar to granite.
