Cleverly Constructed Concrete Creatives
Concrete sinks and countertops in your bathroom? Who would have thought? And why not, few other countertop surface materials offer more customization in shape, color, size, design options and thickness, as I soon found out after talking to Justin Brown, the man behind 2Stone Designer Concrete at The Calgary Home + Interior Design Show.
It is no wonder that a multitude of home owners and design professionals alike have come to the conclusion that concrete counter tops and sinks are an excellent way of creating a distinctive look and adding beauty to your restroom.
What makes concrete such a perfect material for creative decor in your washroom is the fact that it can be poured into moulds of pretty much any shape, form or size. So whether you are creating a sink, vanity or countertop you can use concrete to create a splash in your lavatory through your own distinguishing style.
You should remember though that the final cost of your project is not in the price of the concrete but is linked more to the contractors creative ability and his or her time.
Keeping Your Surfaces Clean and Pristine
Cleaning a concrete countertop is comparable to any other type of surface material; just avoid abrasive soaps and cleaning products with ammonia in them. Using a mild soap or a neutral pH cleanser and warm water will do the job quite nicely.
Believe it or not, concrete countertops are more environmentally friendly than most other types of countertop materials whereas materials such as granite are non-renewable resources. Concrete on the other hand for the most part is made up of rock, sand and cement which can be found in great abundance.
The only downside to concrete is the manufacturing process which can be energy intensive and depending upon the sealant that you use, it can potentially contain VOC’s but for the most part this can be avoided by requesting only environmentally friendly sealants such as a non-toxic water based finish.
While concrete design is still uncharted territory, 2Stone Designer Concrete manages to create beautiful functional art and will customize your bathroom decor, whether it is a countertop, vanity, water feature, custom tiles or even an outdoor BBQ or fireplace with intriguing creative style.
