Polished concrete creates a smooth and reflective look for any room. Aside from its sleek look, it can also be a creative outlet for your business. There are many different design routes that you can take to ensure that the floor, and the room in its entirety, stands out among the rest. From simple polished concrete to patterned polished concrete, your window of opportunity is huge.
Stained Polished Concrete. Concrete stains spice up the look of traditional concrete floors with color. This one of the most popular polished concrete applications in homes and businesses.
Gray Polished Concrete. Concrete’s natural color is gray. If you would like to keep this natural concrete appearance, simply polishing the concrete is a great option. It will give the floor that sleek, smooth, and reflective look without any color addition. Although this seems plain, it may actually enhance the look of certain aspects of the room. It’s simplicity allows everything else to shine brighter.
Dyed Polished Concrete. Dying concrete floors is very similar to staining them. In fact, they are typically combined in order to achieve a more vibrant look that staining cannot produce alone. Stained polished concrete often struggles with the vibrancy of yellows, blues, purples, and a few others. The dye helps enhance this.
Engraved Concrete. Simply put, the concrete is stained with color and then a pattern is engraved into the surface. This engraved area is left uncolored, giving your floor a unique edginess and texture. You can engrave new concrete and even old concrete.
Sawcut Concrete. This technique is great if you are looking for a more decorative approach to concrete floors. Many different shapes can be sawcut into the concrete, which are stained to stand out from the rest of the concrete.
Stamped Concrete. This may also be referred to as patterned stamped concrete or imprinted concrete. Its design can resemble stone, tile, wood, brick, and slate. There are many color choices and style options to choose from. Many times it is used to enhance the looks of driveways, patios, pool decks, and much more.
Logos. You can add your company’s logo permanently onto your polished concrete floor with reflective floor treatments. The logos are applied early on in the polishing process, and become permanent during the resin polishing stage. The logos will not be affected by heavy traffic.
Polished concrete is a great outlet for creativity. The design options extend beyond the seven listed above, however they become more and more complex. Consider any of the above ideas to enhance the look of your home or commercial building. Polished concrete floors are high-end, durable, easy to maintain, and not to mention, beautiful.
