TOTALLY agree.......big mistake...I put it in a house we use for 6 months a has been sealed, re-sealed, and then the whole center top removed and re-installed after more re-sealing...and now it is looking shabby again.....the concrete with sea glass in it is great looking, but the sealant doesn't work????? PS professional fabrication & installation

Decide what style you want and plan you kitchen well before you embark on any renovations. Kitchens are expensive and it is important to note that as much as it should look nice, it should also be practical for the sort of cooking and entertaining you going to be doing.

Glad I got “wood” since we’ve spent time & money creating butcher block countertops from old bowling alley maple flooring...
