Basement Concrete Floor - Modern, Contemporary, Custom and Eco-Friendly

Concrete floors have been used for decades for commercial applications in stores and office buildings.  Most of those beautiful, modern and shiny floors in department stores are finished concrete floors. Recently, the use of concrete as a residential flooring option has become more popular as more beautiful and economical techniques have become available, and word of mouth has spread about the amazing benefits of concrete floors. Concrete flooring is so durable that it has become a great option, economically and packs quite the style statement.

Here is a basement concrete floor that we recently sealed and waxed for some of our favorite clients.  We love love love the final look!!
Some reasons you should consider concrete flooring:
  • you don't even have to leave the house or go shopping, the flooring is already in your home
  • as your taste or style evolves, it's easy to change the look of your concrete floor
  • every house already has a concrete floor waiting to show it's potential and personality
  • it's an eco-friendly flooring option
  • it is has great longevity when compared to other flooring materials
  • it enhances the integrity of architect's designs
  • they are easy to maintain and clean
  • it's easy to change, especially if you sell your home; the next owner can place carpet or wood on top of the concrete slab
  • they are great in regions with a lot of sand, snow or moisture
  • they are a good alternative to carpet if you have allergies

Here is a picture of an aged concrete floor, with our 'kalmalka aqua' stain applied to the top.  As it ages and gets worn out, it will start coming to life and revel it's 'beauty marks.' 

Whether it's simply sealed and waxed, acid-stained, painted, overlays, microtoppings, radiant floors, or a unique personal floor, concrete floors offer a huge range of custom options to fit into any space or style. Concrete flooring (sometimes referred to as cement flooring) used to be hidden under other flooring materials, but why not embrace the beauty of concrete and use the concrete itself as your floor. You can also color the concrete, or apply textures, patterns, seams, which bring new life to your concrete.
