Concrete-effect worktops for modern kitchens

Cool, dark, industrial-style kitchens with nature-inspired textures, heavy materials and dark finishes won me over this year at the KBB Show in Birmingham.

So, move over marble (you’re still in my heart, though), we’ve got a new crush this year. Enter: concrete-effect worktops.

Be it porcelain, laminate or quartz, it’s not the material we’re focusing on, but the finish. Replicating the look and feel of concrete, the latest designs stood out against grainy wooden kitchens at the Show. They were also complemented by matt boiling-water taps, flush black appliances, and steel shelving.
