Upon seeing a bare concrete floor, most of us have trouble imagining potential and possibility. But in reality, there are a ton of design options available. The options cover much more than just paint—stains, dyes, color hardeners, densifiers, and epoxy are all available in a wide range of colors. With the Finishing Solutions Network, you won’t have to lift a finger to create unique effects for your concrete floor design.
Stains: Create a stunning, unique concrete floor design
When they’re applied to a properly prepared surface and allowed to soak in different rates, stains create a beautifully inconsistent finish. All concrete absorbs stains at different rates, which is what makes staining so special and unique.
Color Hardeners/Densifiers: Add to newly poured concrete for surface-level color.
These powders are applied after the concrete is poured and still wet. The finish is also unique to the project. Texture variations of the concrete, as well as the absorption rate, will affect the color.
Paint: Classic and versatile
There are hundreds of products on the market that are used to paint concrete. To determine the right paint for your project, consider the type of traffic (foot/vehicular), how the floor is used, and any potential for oil or chemical spills. Always talk with an expert to help identify the right system for your floor.
From warehouses to showrooms, concrete floors have always been functional. They’re durable, once they’re properly sealed, easy to clean, and water-resistant. If natural concrete is more your thing, sealing a floor is a must.
On top of this functionality, concrete floor design can be stylish, too. Whether your need is functional or cosmetic, the Finishing Solutions Network can match you with the perfect contractor for your next flooring project.
