Concrete is one of the best materials to make a backsplash or a countertop as it has a lot of advantages. First of all, it instantly brings a modern feel and is very trendy and it’s great not only for industrial or minimalist spaces, it’s used in many other kitchens, too: in modern, art deco, vintage and so on. Concrete has lots of different looks: it can get any shapes, stains, textures and finishes, so you’ll be able to find something proper for any style of the kitchen. Concrete isn’t expensive, comparing it to other solutions and can be even DIYed.

Granite used to be and perhaps still is the most popular kitchen countertop option. Granite has a rich beauty and a natural appeal that not many materials can reach. With more than 20 shades of granite to work with, you’ll find one that blends perfectly with your kitchen cabinets, flooring and walls. Granite is a very hard substance and is not susceptible to scratches. Granite resists heat too, so its use near a range or cooktop is ideal. Granite can be very resistant to stains and won’t absorb liquids when it is properly sealed. A good professional installer will be able to seal it correctly so that it maintains its attractive good looks indefinitely, or you can do it yourself.
