Rugged Concrete™ is an authentic and robust industrial-inspired quartz surface design, accentuated by dramatic gradients of grey and white textural patterns. Its Rough matt surface finish and unmistakable style make each slab individually unique.
Symbolic of urban environments and the converted loft aesthetic, Rugged Concrete™ reflects the distinctive look of a hand-poured concrete benchtop working in harmony with neutral palettes that soften its raw yet sophisticated industrial edge.
Rugged Concrete™ is suitable for various applications, from benchtops and splashbacks to bathroom and laundry interiors.
The contrast of light and dark within the design make a versatile design partner for darker, moodier styles or lighter contemporary colour palettes.

Cleaning for Concrete Designs
Caesarstone® Concrete Finish designs carry the same stain and scratch resistance as our polished surfaces, never require sealing and are simple to clean.
However the Concrete matte finish doesn’t disguise marks as well as the polished designs, meaning more regular cleaning may be required using the Caesarstone® Spray Cleaner for daily use and Caesarstone® Cream Cleanser and 3M™ Scotch-Brite™ Non-Scratch Foam Scrub to provide a thorough all over surface clean as per the instructions. Most importantly, thoroughly rinse the Cream Cleanser off after cleaning.
It is extremely important that a Caesarstone® Concrete finish surface is only ever wiped down using a clean cloth solely for that purpose. Don’t use a cloth used to wash dishes as it may impart oils and other contaminants on to the concrete finish surface.

Rugged Concrete™ incorporates texture and movement, which can create natural variations between slabs. To enhance the design outcomes across multiple slabs and edges, always discuss the stone's design flow with your stonemason before cutting.
We recommend the mitred apron edge profile for benchtops greater than 20mm in thickness to achieve the best surface-to-edge pattern continuity.

Surface Care and Maintenance for Rugged Concrete™
Caesarstone® Rough surfaces offer a technologically advanced ‘Rough’ finish which creates a distinctively coarse texture that is still smooth enough for effective cleaning. However, the matt reflective nature of the surface can make it more susceptible to showing everyday marks and spills, which require more regular cleaning and daily care than our polished surfaces.
We encourage you to order a surface sample and treat it to different kitchen scenarios such as spills or greasy fingers. Clean up liquid spills to see if you are happy with the results to help you understand how the surface responds to your daily life and how comfortable you feel.
