Suspended Concrete Hearth

When a concrete hearth is cantilevered, the concrete poured projects outward from its support behind the wall giving the impression of a floating concrete hearth.

A Choice of Style and Colour

  • You can choose between polished (honed) concrete or a plain concrete finish. Just about any look can be achieved with a choice of pebbles, aggregates, and sea shells.
  • Coloured oxides are often used in the concrete to highlight concrete’s natural properties and complement interior designs. Grey and white oxides are most popular because they enhance the natural look and style of aggregate.


Inside or outside, the strength of concrete easily stands up to weather and the intense heat of fire. Cantilevered hearths can be used for sitting on too. All Custom Concrete hearths are sealed with a two pot epoxy sealer protecting against staining and porosity.


Concrete hearths are usually formed, polished and sealed on-site.

Custom Concrete - Concrete Benchtops

A sink and or hob may be incorporated into a benchtop, whilst this looks great it can sometimes lead to hairline cracking around the sink or hob upon installation, however, this does not pose structural or hygiene risks. Concrete is extremely durable and will stand up to wear and tear over a long period of time, however the sealer on a kitchen benchtop is where deterioration can occur.
