Concrete has become the new material of choice for designers and homeowners across the United States. Concrete floors in stained, colored, painted and personalized glory are popping up in retail stores, trendy restaurants, offices and homes everywhere. A concrete floor offers numerous options for interior rooms including nearly limitless designs, colors and even health benefits. One of the most common places you’ll see decorative concrete these days is under your feet. Whether it’s acid-stained, painted, overlays, microtoppings, radiant floors or a unique personal floor, concrete floors offer a range unlike any other material.
Concrete flooring, sometimes referred to as cement flooring, no longer has to be gray and boring. Now coloring concrete, or applying textures, patterns or saw cuts can bring new life to this traditional substrate. Concrete can be so uniquely designed or so naturally colored that it blends seamlessly with other elements in a room. You often don’t even realize it’s a concrete floor you’re standing on! Concrete floors enhance the integrity of the design, are easy to maintain and change and are great in regions with a lot of sand or snow. They are also a good alternative to carpet if you have allergies.
