Customers can no longer use the preserve of open-plan, warehouse-sized spaces and polished concrete in bathrooms, kitchens, and living areas. Polished concrete is hardwearing, attractive, and easy to clean. It can complement any decor or design scheme when used in residential properties. Here are a few key rooms we suggest polished concrete is suitable for.

Polished Concrete Living Areas

A polished concrete floor in a residentials property’s living area can help create a striking and attractive interior. It is most commonly used along with underfloor heating to ensure comfort and warmth even in the depths of winter. While polished concrete can use to create a modern, contractors can soften an almost industrial look polished concrete with the addition of rugs and other textiles.

Concrete Polishing can polish a neutral-colored concrete floor to a matt, satin, or gloss finish. The last few years have seen a surge in matt grey floors, usually offset with boldly coloured furniture. In 2019 interiors are moving back towards earth tones, with muted sand, oatmeal, and linen colours growing in popularity. A newly installed polished concrete floor can be tinted to suit any interior style, while contractors can stain existing concrete floors if they are not a suitable colour.

Polished Concrete Kitchen Floors

The kitchen has become a focus for interior design over the last ten years. While no one has ever doubted its importance, the kitchen has rarely been as central as it is seen today. For many families it is the room in which they cook, eat, work and share time together. Large open plan kitchens, complete with island and inductions hob, have become the must have feature for many homes.

Polished concrete floors make an ideal addition to any kitchen, small or large. The hard wearing surface will look attractive, resist stains and spills and provide a tough surface that will not need to be replaced over time. It has a contemporary look which will match well with modern design styles. Polished concrete floors are also non-slip surfaces, and are easy to clean and maintain. The floor can be paired with concrete countertops and sinks, helping to unify the different aspects of the kitchen.

Polished Concrete Bathroom Floors

The bathroom is a deeply personal space that must combine its utility with a comfortable environment. Polished concrete, when sealed correctly, can withstand the water generated by showers, sinks, and bathtubs. The increased humidity and moisture in bathrooms require a waterproof sealer to stop water from penetrating the floor. However, with the correct expertise, polished concrete can make an ideal wet room.
