Concrete is becoming a “household” word in the design circles. Just ask John Farley of Threshold Design: artisan, fabricator and installer of custom concrete counter-tops in Ottawa and the Valley. His concrete counter-top designs have become the catalyst of many a kitchen makeover and added the “WOW Factor” to all kinds of bathroom renovations. And no surprise in the frosty Ottawa region, concrete fireplace surrounds are a hot seller!
Once relegated to buildings and highways, concrete has become a widely (and wildly!) accepted medium in the world of interior design. And although it’s been more than a decade in Ottawa since concrete counter-tops first became a fashionable fixture in shops, restaurants and homes – new designs have made them more desirable than ever! With concrete, and a little imagination, almost any shape of counter can be formed. The spectrum of colours available for a concrete counter in John’s Pakenham Studio is virtually endless too. Using colour pigments combined with white portland cement and various aggregates such as recycled glass and stone, many special effects can be achieved. The result: a custom concrete counter that tops Ottawa’s A-list of inspired home elements. Today’s consumers are also searching for environmentally-friendlymaterials for their homes and businesses. Look no further than Threshold Design in Ottawa for eco-friendly concrete counter-tops and more concrete ideas that will make your space more beautiful… and make you feel good about your choice!
