Stainless steel is an excellent kitchen material due to its stain- and heat-resisting capacity. It’s also fully customizable to any specifications and can be installed without seams.

The past couple of years have seen a distinct trend toward the in the home, and kitchen countertops are no exception. Concrete countertops are durable and, if sealed correctly, are pretty scratch- and heat-resistant. They can be customized for shape, color, and texture, which is a bonus.

Step 3: Mix up a small amount of Ardex Feather Finish. The manufacturer’s instructions recommend a 2:1 powder-to-water ratio. This is a good place to start, and you’ll be able to tell if that’s the ratio that works for you. It’s important to use the same ratio for each batch that you mix up for one layer, because even small differences in water content can (and will) slightly alter the color/darkness of the dried concrete. You’ll probably be mixing up several batches per layer.
