This week, we’re looking at gorgeous and versatile concrete.
Price: $25-$125 a square foot, depending on quality, source and uniqueness
Pros: Has a handmade look. The color may vary slightly in the slab, and the surface can be a bit irregular, which, depending on your perspective, only add to concrete’s charm. It’s poured to order, so you can pick the shape, thickness, and color, and even opt for an integrated draining board or a specialty edge.
Cons: Must be sealed at installation and after that at least once a year. Can develop nonstructural hairline cracks. The durability depends largely on the fabricator’s and installer’s skills.
How To Clean It: Wipe up spills with a paper towel. Clean with warm, soapy water.
