Getting creative with concrete

Concrete is the material of the moment. And for good reason!

Whether you are looking for that special piece for your kitchen, bathroom or outdoor space, here’s why you should be thinking about using concrete now...


Range and Design Options

Looking to include a benchtop, table, sink, bathtub, fireplace, BBQ/pizza oven top or even an outdoor kitchen in your renovation? Concrete can be used to produce a striking and durable piece.

Other range items you may like to consider include flooring, sills, steps, and firepits.

The sky really is the limit when it comes to what pieces can be crafted in concrete.
Adding in a design option is also a possibility. A popular design option is a customised benchtop with built-in sink, drainer and/or a compost chute.


Pieces can be customised to suit your style, needs and budget.

You can choose from a wide range of colours, several aggregates (aggregate is the elements in the concrete: gravel and crushed stone - the 'decorative' part of the concrete) thicknesses as well as finishes. Aggregates provide different looks – by choosing a non-exposed aggregate, partially exposed aggregate or fully exposed aggregate, the individual look of your finished piece can be completed.

All concrete products are smooth to the touch and deliver an earthy natural warmth, particularly when used in combination with other materials.

Versatility and Style

Concrete is versatile, which means it can be used in a variety of styles – from ultra modern to classic chic and even country inspired installations.

If you dream of concrete but your budget is stretched, why not consider just one feature piece?

A concrete island top looks fantastic as a feature in kitchens with timber, stainless or engineered stone benchtops.


Extremely easy to maintain, the process used to clean a regular benchtop can also be used for a concrete one.

Pricing and Value 

As a guideline, the price of a Concreate benchtop sits between that of a re-engineered stone and natural stone top of equivalent thickness.
