With the correct concrete countertop coating, it becomes resistant to water and staining, from foods like, ketchup, vinegar, lemon juice and even red wine as well, so it is easy to clean and you won't have to worry about further damage to the counter.
Concrete countertops are also good for your overall design plan. Many concrete countertops can be cast rather than cut like stone countertops, so they can be shaped in many different ways.
