Pros and Cons of Concrete Slab Dining Tables

concrete slab dining tableConcrete has been a hot trend for some time now, and it shows no sign of cooling off. People are turning to concrete in lieu of other natural stones for kitchen counters, flooring and dining room tables. There are a number of pros to choosing concrete:

  • Extreme durability
  • Won’t scratch
  • Heat resistant (though sealants can be damaged by extreme heat)
  • Easy to clean with soap and water

Concrete dining room sets are showing up with more frequency in furniture stores across the country. There’s no question dining room sets take a beating: from hot dishes to spills to scratching, it can be difficult to keep a dining set looking new. A slab dining table offers an alternative to wood that will stand the test of time.

If you think of concrete as cold and industrial, the Everest Brown Dining Room Set from The RoomPlace will make you reconsider. This concrete dining table is classic and comfortable. The X-shaped treble support offers a solid and modern base, and the brown faux leather chairs with nailhead trim add warmth and elegance.

Concrete is not without its flaws. It is porous, so it needs to be sealed immediately and resealed every one to three years. Sealant can be damaged by extreme heat, sharp knives, and harsh cleaners.

Concrete also changes over time, developing a rich patina with age.. Most people consider this a favorable attribute, as it means it will develop warmth and character.
