From Simple to Daring, Try Concrete Staining

The commonly-chosen approach for concrete floors is to find something to cover them with – engineered wood flooring, carpeting with a nice thick pad, or ceramic tile. But with today’s acid-staining options, you may want to take advantage of concrete’s versatility. For less than a cover-up you can create a unique and intriguing floor either inside or outside your home.

Concrete staining allows you to turn your concrete patio from its traditional greyish white to rich terracotta, or maybe you want to take a real design leap with a choice like the one above in your rec room. Acid staining using coloring salts provides an appealing variety of colors and tones with almost no limit to your pattern choices. Skilled artisans can turn your simple floor to something that completely changes the feel of a space.

Cracks and discolorations can be hidden with a layer of thinset concrete, and then the palette is limited only by your imagination. Concrete can be colored to look like stone or tile, or you can create something that is only possible with concrete options. The final finish can shine like this one or stay matte, depending upon your approach and preference.
