One of the simplest solutions is covering countertops with the contact paper. The first step to take is cleaning your countertops. Make sure that they are really clean and dry, and there is nothing on them. You can even sand them and after that just use the soaped water. We definitely recommend cleaning them twice. After that, take the measures to know how much of paper you need. Every measure you take, leave at least one inch more, to be sure that you will get enough paper. The only accessories you need are the knife or scissors to cut edges of the paper, and some item to smooth out countertops.

The other solution is to put the big cutting board on the tops of your countertops. It does not have to cover the whole surface, but try to hide all the ugliest places.

Such countertops will become more durable, very practical and easy to clean.

Additionally, if there were any inconsistencies on your old countertops, concrete layer will make it cohesive. Those who are dreaming about natural stone look, they can achieve it by painting countertops with acrylic painting and faux painting sponge technique.
