Multiple Applications for Concrete in the Kitchen – Ridgewood, NJ Remodel

Anthony Albert Studios made a big statement with this small Ridgewood kitchen. This project is the perfect example of how concrete products can be utilized in several different areas of a room.  Anthony chose concrete countertops at 1.5″ thick that were cast in Trueform’s Signature Finish in the color Olive with a reverse beveled edge profile.  On each side of the stove, stainless steel trivets were cast in to create areas for hot pots and pans to be placed.  Carrying the material throughout the rest of the room, Anthony used concrete as trim casing around the large window, which was made 3″ wide and 3/4″ thick.  It met up with the glass wall tile that pulled beautiful green and amber tones out of the concrete countertop. The bay window sill was cast in concrete as well and followed the contour of the windows.   Behind the stove, a large 3/4″ wall panel was recessed to create a niche for oils and cooking wines.  The same 3″ concrete trim was used to create the surround of the niche.  The sink was a custom made bow faced concrete farm sink.  It was cast at 1.5″ to 3″ thick in the front to create the contour and make it stand proud of the cabinetry.  Another special design element in this room are the floating concrete shelves.  These concrete shelves were cast in three different sizes, with each shelf getting smaller as they went up the wall.   The concrete shelves were finished on all sides, except for the back which was hollowed out to accept custom brackets that were made specifically for these shelves.  The most unique part of the shelves is that they were cast to accept puck lights that project light down to either the shelf or countertop below.  This is truly a beautiful and unique kitchen that will be enjoyed for years to come.  This kitchen and other areas of the home will be featured in 201 Magazine this February/March.

    I was at the store the other day and over heard a couple of ladies talking about concrete counter tops. I was really skeptical about how they would look but I actually really like them. I would even consider putting them in my house!
