If you choose a topical product, the color will be close, but you need to expect a slight difference. Typically, the finished color can come out up to two shades lighter or darker than indicated, so keep that in mind when making your choice.
- Personal Preference when choosing a concrete countertop color. If you have a specific color scheme or theme to your kitchen, go with one of the accent colors to create a cohesive look.
- Selling the Home you will put the house on the market, you need to think of a concrete countertop color that would be a selling point rather than a distraction. For this scenario, it might be best to stick with a more neutral color that you find pleasing.
- Highlighting Colors on stamped concrete as opposed to a steel trowel finish, think about including an antiquing agent that produces a contrasting highlight color. Not only would this create a more realistic appearance, it would have a gorgeous two-tone effect. In this case, the base concrete countertop color should be lighter than the antiquing color.
