Modern and Super Cool Black Concrete Floor on Wood Subfloor with Black Stained Concrete Fireplace Tiles, made by artisans in Kelowna BC Canada by MODE CONCRETE
This style stunner is located on Okanagan Lake. MODE CONCRETE created the black stained concrete floor overlay, on the main floor of this residence (on a wooden substrate). With proper prep, all surfaces can be topped with a concrete floor similar to this and are made of a light weight concrete so no extra structural supports are required for your project. The picture below is wonderful, because you can actually see how thin the concrete floor is.
We also created the modern black stained concrete fireplace surround. This look is achieved by creating large format hand cast concrete tiles, made from a light weight material. The tiles can be natural, stained or customized in any way, by our master artisan Gareth Tyrrell. No extra supports need to be installed, since this concrete is light weight and is a similar weight to tile. Concrete tiles are great for refacing older dated fireplace surrounds, or applying straight onto drywall.
A vibrant or bold colored concrete floor or fireplace surround (like the black stain we used here) is easy to achieve, and can usually be created with water based eco-stains (safe for indoor projects) or traditional acid staining. Concrete acts as a blank canvas and any color or finish can be applied. Our master concrete artisan and company owner, Gareth Tyrrell works on every job, from beginning to end, ensuring top quality results and ecstatic clients every time - we guarantee it!
Concrete floors are perfect for maximizing your indoor/outdoor living and creating a consistent flow throughout your space. Perfect for the Okanagan, when the sunshine starts to shine! Contact us today for more details.
