Eco-friendly—the material is so durable, it could literally last a lifetime—concrete is also a recyclable material. At its most basic, a concrete mix consists of sand, rock and cement, which makes it more a more sustainable option than other countertop materials (think granite or marble) that are mined, non-renewable materials.

Concrete counters are also quite heavy, so you'll need to make sure the base, whether it's cabinetry or an island, is strong enough to support the weight. While beautiful in its natural state, concrete can also be colored or stained in a variety of colors.

To further customize the look, many kitchen designers will add recycled or remnant materials like glass, sea glass, shells or fossils to still-wet concrete for a unique and custom look.
