Concrete designs are one of the hot new trends for concrete patios, concrete floors, entryways, countertops, pool decks and more. Concrete is no longer plain, grey and boring, it is considered a beautiful decorative element. Stained concrete floors are not only attractive but also very cost effective. Polished concrete is another popular choice for interior floors, especially in educational and medical facilities, because they create an attractive, light-reflective, easy-to-maintain durable surface. Concrete evolves and acquires character over time. That is the attraction of concrete countertops. Veining, texture and color vary, and regular use impacts the surface over time giving it its own unique character. Concrete countertops are the most personal countertop option because they are made from scratch for each client. Chemical stains, coloring pigments, various aggregates, and epoxy coatings can give concrete the look, texture, and feel of quarried stone such as marble, granite, and limestone.
Everyone is looking for a value, a way or means of making their dollars go further. Concrete flooring applications can give you that advantage.
The decorative concrete advantage:
- Cost savings by eliminating traditional floor coverings and using the slab on grade as the finished floor.
- Reduced maintenance and longer service life.
- Better resistance to moisture and heavy foot traffic.
- Good light reflectivity.
