draingroovesAn overview of what integral sinks are, and why a decorative concrete sink and countertop might be right for you.

What are integral sinks?

INTEGRAL SINKS are made from the same material as the countertop they are set into. The effect is a smooth transition from sink to counter surface.

What are the advantages of integral sinks?

Integral Sinks: Elegant & Practical Design FeatureEASY CLEANUP Integral sinks lack a seam between the sink and countertop. Thus, there are no places for food particles to collect in.

MODERN DESIGN Integral sinks have a simplistic design allowing the focus to stay on features such as an elegant faucet or artistic backsplash.

Why is concrete the ideal material for integral sinks?

Concrete is an extremely versatile building material that can easily handle both the water resistant sink and functional countertop. Concrete also offers unique style and color options not possible with other materials.

Something for you to consider —

Decorating Trend (1)A concrete fireplace can dramatically enhance any space.

As outdoor temperatures drop, the warmth and glow of flickering flames provides a welcoming gathering place. Even when not in use, a fireplace is a room’s focal point.

Concrete’s natural properties make it an ideal material for fireplace surrounds, hearths, and mantels.

surround – an architectural element that surrounds a fireplace, providing aesthetic and safety benefits

hearth – the floor of a fireplace, often extending outwards into the room

mantel – the protruding shelf over a fireplace

The concrete fireplace is growing in popularity due to concrete’s endless design possibilities. Concrete offers unique style and color options not possible with other materials.

Ideal Material. Concrete’s properties make it ideally suited for fireplace surrounds, hearths, and mantels; it is strong, vermin proof, fire resistant, and retains heat.

Customized To Any Style. A concrete fireplace is a natural fit in any decor style. Concrete can be customized to fit all personalities and surroundings.

Popular looks in the concrete fireplace trend go from modern, with clean lines and natural finishes, to rustic and aged, incorporating other materials as only concrete can.

13797_1348879328_209_13797We had the opportunity to work with an artistic couple to create a one-of-a-kind concrete fireplace surround, hearth, and mantle. For greater dramatic effect, the homeowners asked for a raised hearth that seems to float above the floor, and for the fireplace surround to extend from floor to ceiling with built-in display shelves.
