Concrete floors are virtually no new phenomenon, a lot of us will have an old lumpy little bit of concrete flooring or patio somewhere around the home! One of the most common questions that builders and concrete professionals get asked is "how must i make my concrete ______ look better?". For a long time now builders and designers are already espousing the virtues of decorated or painted concretes. The latest development, although hardly new, is concrete staining. -stained_concrete-

What you would want to know however is the thing that are the advantages of staining concrete flooring, in comparison to the large number of options available to everyone nowadays? Hopefully I will give you some help here!

Why concrete staining?

A lot of people wonder why you would bother to stain concrete when there are many other options open to you regarding flooring. Tiles, wood floor, laminates, and even painting direct on to concrete are other options that perhaps cheap, and simple to perform. If you ask any professional they will probably give you a single word answer! "Character".

Stained concrete carries a feel of rich, deep, translucent tones, just like that find in fine oil painting, which means the floor looks like it has aged into the site, as an alternative to being a feature because of its newness. The results can mimic metal, marble, stone and wood, and also, since the effect is dependent on the main concrete, no two sites are ever the same.

Concrete is eco-friendly in comparison to many other kinds of flooring. Hardwood obviously has all the issues relating to sustainability, laminate kitchen floors are notorious for non-green production processes, carpet production is very environmentally unfriendly, so concrete is really a relatively green process. -stained_concrete-
