3 Ways to Beautify a Concrete Surface, Windham, Connecticut

Underneath your carpet or tile, your home’s floors are all concrete. This flat grey surface is usually not seen as a finished floor — but, with just a little work, you can turn concrete into a durable, attractive finished surface. Consider these options as an alternative to other flooring options, or to improve an outdoor concrete surface such as a patio.

Options for Embellishing Concrete

1. Stamping

ConcreteInstead of a plain, flat surface, stamped concrete incorporates a texture or design into its surface. Concrete is almost endlessly workable, so options range from a slightly roughened stone texture or an attractive cobblestone pattern to unique works of art drawn into the surface. This means your concrete floor can be made to match almost any aesthetic.

2. Color

Before concrete is poured, various dyes can be mixed in to achieve a range of different colors. These colors can be warm and vibrant, and they don’t fade or wear since they’re built into the concrete. You also aren’t limited to one hue; a colored concrete floor can be poured in different sections to create a pattern.

3. Polish

Finally, you don’t have to settle for the rough, natural texture of concrete. Using a specialized floor grinder, even an existing surface can be polished to a glossy shine. You don’t have to apply waxes, finishes, or other chemicals to get and maintain this result; the concrete itself is smoothed and polished.
