5 Modern Concrete Counters To Inspire Your Dream Kitchen

by Grace Bonney


Soapstone has always been my dream counter material of choice, but after seeing concrete pop up in more and more modern homes, it’s become something of a fascination of mine. I’m always afraid I’ll whack my arm on it and hurt myself (I know, I worry too much), but seeing it in these beautiful modern homes — especially against bright paint colors (above) — makes me rethink this industrial material. Need some inspiration for a concrete project? Check out five of my favorites from kitchens we love. xo, grace
