Specializing in countertops and precast installments, New Edge Design, created these custom concrete countertops and island to aesthetically complement the kitchen's design.

These terra cotta-colored counters feature a custom concrete mix. The countertops and island slab were precast and a team of four installed the surfaces. A lithium-based reactive hardener and sealer was applied to complete the work. The island features a bent concrete seam to complement the curves in the kitchen floor and a sweep of ground finish spanning across it. Holes were cut in the countertops to accommodate a sink and a countertop range.

The countertops were specified to include a 1/16-inch tolerance for the overhang. The project took four weeks to complete from creating the templates to final installation.
