Concrete countertops are only limited to the imagination and the ability to make the forms as such. All concrete requires coarse and fine aggregates for proper consistency and strength. In fact, these aggregates are a main composition of concrete. In the application of countertops, the aggregates are of great importance. Obviously, the aggregates must allow the concrete to set up as it should. However, aggregates can have roles in the aesthetics of the concrete countertop, as well. For example, the type of fine aggregates chosen (i.e. sand) can drastically change the color of the finished product. Also, if the countertop is polished, the process can grind into the concrete, exposing aggregates. In this case, aggregate sizes and colors are just as important as any concrete coloring to the final look of the top.
There are a variety of colors available in the single color product, and the granite option comes in many colors as well including chocolate, sapphire blue, green, sand and even red granite looks. A variety of patterns and color grade may be achieved with the same set of countertop paint depending upon your application technique. Wondering how long this project will take? Its a lot easier and faster than you think to apply it. Achieving a granite look will take as little as 4 hours for an average size (approximately 35 square feet) countertop. These impressive countertop paints also seal out moisture, are low odor and water based. In addition, the kits give you just about everything you need to successfully transform your countertops including a high-grade clear finish coat and associated rollers, foam applicators and a step by step instructional DVD. On average, for most countertop paint kits, its recommended that you wait 3 days before using your newly painted countertops. Plan accordingly as you may not want to start a project like this within a holiday time period or when high use of your kitchen or bath countertops are expected.
The answer is "No". Most countertops of the materials listed above do have inherent qualities in them to protect themselves from damage. You can though never predict the gale wind that could bring your countertop down to dust! That said, treating natural countertops can make it resistant to any damage. First things, most natural stone countertops are heavy. The heaviness causes them to be scratch resistant apart from being resistant to stains. Middle Eastern mountains produce durable granites that are preferred for use as natural stone countertops. The granites produced from these mountains are found to be more resistant to heavy scratches and juice stains.
