Countertop Series, Part 3 – Eco By Cosentino

…and because I love the look of concrete countertops, I also love Eco by Cosentino in the color Crystal Ash:

Their website says, “ECO by Cosentino is an original product manufactured from 75% recycled materials such as mirror, glass, porcelain, earthenware and vitrified ash. Even 94% of the water used in its manufacturing process is re-used. It’s a new product that embraces sustainability, design, and quality that has produced a new category of recycled surfaces. These are an ecological alternative to similar surfaces available for construction and decoration. All the manufacturing processes comply with high environmental standards; which makes ECO by Cosentino a highly sustainable and unique product.

I love that they’re made by using things that would otherwise end up in a landfill, and I’m crazy about the little sparkly bits in it. We picked up a couple of samples of it at Home Depot a while back, and I’ve had to resist the urge to craft them into earrings. πŸ˜‰

And although my favorite Eco color is Crystal Ash, HGTV’s Sarah Richardson used their “White Diamond” on top of the cabinets in the kitchen below and I think it looks pretty fantastic, too:

I’ll be back tomorrow with a post about another one of my favorite kinds of countertops. Kevin and I are visiting some folks who have a slab of it today and I can’t wait to see it in person!

    Oooooo, I am loving that material! Is it expensive, anyone know? When I checked the HD website I could only really find a price for a sample, not per-square foot.

      Seems like I remember seeing the number “26” when I was at Home Depot, Martha. Maybe it was $26/sq foot? #Don’tQuoteMeOnThat #I’mProbablyWayOff

      *Edited to add- I just asked a friend of mine who has it in her home and she said it’s more like $70/sq foot. #ToldYaNotToQuoteMe πŸ˜‰

    Oooo, I love the white w/ the sparklies! It looks like marble. Love that this is recycled material. Thanks for sharing!

    We have cherry Craftsman style cabinetry in our kitchen, and quite an expanse of counter top space. I love both, but that white really catches my eye. And since I live in Oregon, the brighter the surfaces the brighter the house. lol

    Sarah’s kitchens are always my faves and this one is my dream! The episode was great but I would have let her put in her original colour choice for the floor as I loved the yellow and green with the other colours. Looking forward to seeing more posts of your work soon I hope!

    That kitchen episode of Sarah’s was just on HGTV this week. She talked about the counter top and I wondered what it was. Thanks for sharing!!

    Many people have inquired about the cost of these countertops installed. I recently had the crystal ash installed by Home Depot in my kitchen this past Christmas. I had 56 square feet. They charge extra for the edge detail and installing the sink. The total cost came out to $3867. We purchased it during a 10% off sale so the price is the sale price. I absolutely LOVE it, and while is costs more than if we had chosen granite, I am so happy I went with what I loved.

      Really love this style. Found the counter at Home Depot. Is that a quartz backsplash? Did you find that as HD as well? Very nice.
