How to Incorporate Concrete Design Elements Into Your Kitchen, Wallingford Center, Connecticut

While concrete is often considered a building material for industrial uses, it can also make a great aesthetic choice within the home. As Meriden, CT’s leading material supply company, The L. Suzio York Hill Companies has a reputation for providing a wide range of quality building materials, including a variety of concrete products. That’s why they offer the following tips on how you can incorporate concrete elements into your next kitchen remodel.

Countertops

Concrete countertops provide a great alternative to more traditional materials because they offer both visual appeal as well as functionality. Concrete is a perfect accompaniment to modern kitchen designs, and it works particularly well with metallic design elements. A countertop made from concrete will also hold up well after daily use and won’t be prone to scratching like glossier materials.

Backsplash

concreteIf you’re going for a more rustic, earthy look, a concrete backsplash is a superb element to incorporate. The richness of texture will be on full display in your kitchen, especially when contrasted with sleeker materials and appliances. Texture is often underrated when it comes to design, but it really adds to the aesthetic appeal of a space. Fortunately, concrete can easily be manipulated into the exact texture of your choosing.

Islands

You can even design a stylish and functional island in your kitchen. Your overall vision will dictate just how you want your island to be constructed — you can incorporate shelving for added convenience, or give you island rounded edges for a more interesting look. Some designers take an artistic approach when using concrete, which can result in an array of shapes and configurations.
