Although worktops are one of the last items to be installed, concrete worktops should be selected as early as possible. Here is an outline of the process:

  1. Color selection
    • Niche Concrete often performs custom color matching and submits samples for your approval. Allow about 3 weeks for this process. See the section on custom colors for more information.
  2. Templating
    • Templating is done from finished and installed cabinetry, and it takes less than one day.
  3. Fabrication
    • The typical time required to fabricate most concrete worktops, depending on their size and complexity, is 3-4 weeks. Note that the fabrication process may not start immediately after templating depending on how full our production schedule is. A good guideline is to contact Niche Concrete at the beginning of the project, or at the latest one month before cabinetry is scheduled to be installed, both to allow time for custom color samples and to secure a spot on Niche Concrete’s production schedule.
    • Niche Concrete uses
    • o In the case of a residential project such as a complete kitchen remodel, homeowners are usually willing to wait longer for their custom-made, handcrafted concrete worktops. However, temporary worktopscan be a way to minimize inconvenience. Temporary plywood worktopsare one possible solution. Or, the contractor can preserve parts of the old worktopsto provide some work surfaces.
  4. Installation
    • Because Niche Concreteworktopsare precast and prefinished, installation generally takes less than one day.
