What Is The Best Concrete To Use For White Countertops?

If you are building a concrete countertop from scratch, use a high-quality white Concrete Countertop Mix that contains white Portland cement, chopped fiberglass (for reinforcement) and white sand.

How Much Do White Concrete Countertops Cost?

Replacing an old countertop can be expensive. The average cost of a new countertop in the U.S. is about $3,000 without labor. However, you can  refinishing an existing countertop to look like a new countertop for a fraction of the price . Simply apply a skim coat of white concrete overlay to your old countertop for a clean white finish.

Can I use a Gray Concrete and Still Get a White Countertop?

No. A true-white color can only be achieved using white cement mix. White Titanium Dioxide Pigment can be added to gray concrete mix to create a sleek “ash” look that is popular in modern homes.

For a true white finish, remember to use Titanium Dioxide White Pigment with White Concrete Countertop Mix

Can I Stain a Gray Concrete Countertop White?

If you want a solid white look the fastest and least expensive option is to apply White Tinted Concrete Sealer. For enhanced durability, we recommend adding a topcoat to the countertop using either a Polyurethane or Epoxy Sealer.

Another way to add fabulous white color to gray concrete is using a  Pearl Metallic Epoxy Sealer. Not only does this add shimmering white color but it also adds a durable layer of protection to indoor countertops.

What’s the Best Sealer for White Concrete Countertops?

We encourage customers with white countertops to apply Polyurethane Sealer for greater durability and stain resistance. Direct Colors offers polyurethane sealer in Glossy and Matte finishes for indoor or outdoor concrete countertops.
