The ultimate modern look at home
Are you redecorating at home? You have many decisions to make. Do you want to give it a complete overhaul and restyle, or just change the flooring? If so, do you intend to replace your old carpet or tiles? Have you ever thought of ripping out your old flooring and having a concrete floor instead?
Concrete flooring is set to become a popular new trend. Not long ago, no one would have even dreamed how popular concrete floors would be these days. It would have been thought inconceivable to leave the cement floors of your house slab uncovered by carpet, vinyl or tiles. Of course, we are not talking about having bare cement floors at your home. Concrete floors have a place in any room of your home, but here we will be particularly considering concrete floors for your driveway, patio, or pool surrounds. These days concrete floors are considered modern, sleek and stylish, and there is a myriad of ways you can transform concrete to provide the ultimate modern look.
How to decorate concrete floors
Your cement floor can be polished, painted, acid- stained, stamped or resurfaced with any design, texture or colour you can imagine. Concrete paint is available in a large variety of epoxy latex paints. You can paint in a solid colour or decorate with any design you choose. If your floor isn’t in good condition, it would be best to resurface with a cement overlay which can then be decorated in various patterns, or polished into a smooth finish.
The benefits of concrete flooring
A concrete floor is extremely easy to maintain. All you need to do to keep it in tip-top condition is to mop it occasionally, using water and a detergent.
Concrete floors are exceedingly tough and will be difficult to damage even with the heaviest use. It isn’t susceptible to damage from dragging furniture, scuffing from shoes or scratching from pet’s claws. Even if you dropped something heavy, it wouldn’t crack easily. Just don’t bring your jackhammer into the living room, as there is a limit to what it can withstand without being damaged.
As your concrete floor will last indefinitely, or as long as your house is standing, you will save a lot of money on replacing tiles etc every few years or whenever they need replacing.
In the past, concrete was overlooked as a potential flooring choice for many areas of a home, as it was thought to be suitable for merely functional rooms such as the garage. But concrete can be transformed into a thing of beauty and elegance to give you the ultimate modern look your property deserves.
