Start with a Smaller Bathroom Concrete Countertop Project
Pour a Countertop or Overlay an Existing Vanity
Concrete countertops are a great addition to any bathroom. In fact bathroom concrete countertops are often a DIYer’s first project. Direct Colors offers two options for bathroom concrete countertops. If you would prefer to keep your existing bathroom vanity, the surface can be scuffed, thoroughly cleaned and overlaid using a concrete overlay. Concrete Overlay can be acid stained or integrally colored using concrete pigment in the color of your choice. The overlay option is by far the easiest and least expensive but the surface prep is critical for a good bond. Invest in a magic trowel for a super smooth finish. You’ll be glad you did!
Pouring concrete countertops allows you to create any shape or size countertop you prefer but it is more work overall. Our customer, Mr. Bartel, pre-cast a gray concrete top and used a paint brush to flick black acid stain onto the surface giving the top a unique but uncomplicated look. The top was then sealed with Penetrating Lithium Hardener Sealer and scoured using wet polishing pads for a very light shine. Lithium Sealer is a great option for a matte finish but the surface must be scoured for best results before use. Simple is often better in a small place and Mr. Bartel has created a beautifully designed space in his home. Great work.
