There are traditional methods for counter top surfaces like granite and there are custom poured concrete counter tops. The main advantage to pouring your counter tops is the versatility of shape, color, finish and design. You are not limited by what is in stock, availability, or imagination. A simple chiseled stone edge is a neat feature that would be impossible to create with granite. Besides custom shape there are different finishes as options like colored-glass embedded polished concrete, stamped for exterior, 3D epoxy reflector, and acid stained.
