Concrete coatings offer unlimited options to create a unique look in your home or business without spending a fortune. Achieve old-world elegance, a modern, opulent appearance, or a more traditional and homey feel. With epoxy floor coatings, concrete stains, and additives, you can do all of these and more. Here are five ideas to help you design a stylish, easy to maintain look in any setting, large or small.
- Get The Wood Floor Look
- Try Marble Floor Techniques
- Customize Tiles To Personalize Your Space
- Explore Aggregates & Broadcast Mediums
- Upgrade Your Outdoor Look
1. Create A Charming Concrete Wood Floor
Hardwood floors are beautiful but maintaining them can be a real pain. Use rustic wood epoxy coatings over etched or stenciled concrete to create the look of a wood floor that is highly durable and easy to clean. You can adjust the shading to make a darker or lighter wood appearance that will endure for years to come.
2. Discover The Stunning Appeal Of MarbleWRAP
MarbleWRAP is a metallic epoxy with natural veining characteristics that imitate the look of marble stone. It is quick to apply and creates a scratch and slip-resistant surface. MarbleWRAP is ideal for use in car dealerships, storefronts, boutiques, and anywhere else you desire an elegant, high-class appearance.
The range of colors combined with multiple swirling effects guarantees a unique look for every application.
3. Design A Custom Tile Floor
Everybody loves a prettily-patterned tile floor, but tile chips and cracks easily, and the grout can be a nightmare to keep clean. Tile’s timeless look can easily be achieved on a concrete floor. Combine different epoxy coating colors with stencils used to mask your pattern.
You can create a basic geometric tile pattern or go for a more elaborate stenciled centerpiece or mock inlay.
4. Use Aggregates & Broadcast Mediums
Broadcast floors add shine and a touch of texture with quartz aggregates and a variety of color flakes. Combine aggregates with other concrete floor design techniques, such as adding them into the mediums used to creating mock tiles, for an eye-popping appeal.
5. Create High-End Pavement For A Fraction Of The Price
Up to now, we’ve been talking about interior projects, but concrete has obvious uses outside as well. Use stamped concrete to replicate the look of flagstone, slate, tile, and brick. This is an affordable alternative to traditional paving materials.
Stamped concrete can also be used inside to create textured flooring in kitchens, family rooms, entryways, and basements.
