Concrete as a kitchen countertop material has a certain warmth and appealing tactility not found in natural stone or manmade alternatives. Combined with the ability to customize its color, shape, appearance and its high recyclability, a well executed concrete countertop becomes a kitchen focal point one I enjoy in my own home.
Mixing metals is a great way to add visual interest, particularly in a kitchen. When you mix metals, like bronze and brass, you are creating depth. This works so well in a kitchen because you have the opportunity to use different finishes in your plumbing, hardware, and lighting. A matte finish combined with a shiny one creates a great balance. Strive for a coordinated look rather than a matchy-matchy one and the end result will be far more interesting than selecting the same finish throughout.
