Concrete is the foundation of every home building project. Its durability has made it crucial for constructing a home. But, if you do not like the plain, grey concrete floors in your home, there is help.

How to Beautify the Concrete Floors in your Home?

Concrete material has great functional value. However, when you compare it to other materials such as stone and paver, it has less decorative value. If you want your home to look beautiful, you can contact an experienced concrete contractor and choose any of the following choices for beautifying the conc

rete floors in your home:

Resurfaced Concrete

If you opt for resurfaced concrete, the concrete contractor will fix the cracks in the floor. Once the floor is repaired, he will use a polymer concrete resurfacing material and apply it on the existing floor of your basement, patio, driveway, etc. Choose an experienced contractor because he will be able to create different patterns such as flagstone, brick, wooden planks, etc., and beautify the concrete floors efficiently.

The technique of concrete resurfacing is useful only if the concrete floor is not damaged. If there are large cracks in the floor, the overlaying material will not remain robust for a long time.

Stained Concrete

If you choose to stain a concrete floor, you can transform a boring floor to a beautiful piece of art. The concrete contractor will stain a cured concrete floor with an array of different colors. Following are the most common types of stains used by the contractor:

Acid Stain – It is the most common type of stain used for staining a concrete floor. The acid reacts with the concrete material and gives a unique color to the floor.

Water-Based Acrylic Stain– If the floor has defects, you must opt for water-based acrylic stain because it can hide the cracks effectively.

Dyes - It offers variety of colors and enables you to customize the floor successfully.

Stamped Concrete

If you opt for stamping the concrete, it can help you to decorate the concrete floor beautifully. The concrete can be stamped to remind you of different patterns such as brick, tile, wood, etc. It is an effective way of imitating the beauty of pavers and stone at a reduced cost. Also, if you want to stamp innovative designs and logos on the floor, a concrete contractor can help you with it.

Usually, stamped concrete is ideal for a freshly poured concrete. If you need to stamp an existing concrete floor, do not worry. The contractor will have to add a layer of concrete or overlay mixture to the existing concrete floor before stamping it.

Engraved Concrete

It is a simpler way of adding style to an existing concrete floor. If you opt for it, the concrete contractor will etch patterns into the floor. It is an inexpensive method of adding beauty to a concrete floor. Also, the designs are permanent and don’t wear away after years of use.

Concrete material is durable for building a home but its dull grey exterior can be an eyesore for you. If you want to increase its decorative value, you must contact a concrete contractor and discuss the possible choices for beautifying the concrete floors in your home.

Are you looking for ways to enhance the aesthetic value of your home? You can start by beautifying the concrete floors. Increase its decorative value with the help of Toronto’s licensed concrete contractor. Pour Concrete provides complete home restoration services including foundation repair service, structural repair service as well as underpinning.
