Polished concrete floors are more popular than ever before. Once seen primarily in businesses and viewed as a flooring option better suited to industrial buildings than to home decor, concrete’s perception has begun to shift. More homeowners than ever are beginning to look to concrete flooring for its simple, clean appearance and understated elegance. At the same time, the popularity of polished concrete as a flooring solution for restaurants and stores has continued to grow.


If your idea of polished concrete is limited to plain gray flooring, you might be surprised to learn how many floor staining options for concrete floors are available. In this post, our Brooklyn flooring specialists at ACT Restoration will break down some of the natural looks available for concrete floors.


Combining Elegance and Versatility

Concrete is an ideal flooring solution for the modern age. Carpet, linoleum, and other popular flooring options are not always the most versatile solutions when it comes to style. However, concrete can create a simple, clean backdrop for a living or commercial space. In many ways, it is an ideal canvas for balancing a wide range of decorative styles from modern to eclectic.


Due to their water resistance, concrete floors also function well in many spaces in a home from the bathroom to the entry and even kitchen. If you love the idea of stained concrete flooring, the selection of floor stains available ranges from bold and assertive to more subdued and natural.


Here are a few of our most popular natural concrete looks for polished concrete floors:


1.      TiqueWash for Textured Concrete

If you’ve got a stamped concrete patio or deck surrounding your pool, TiqueWash works with the natural look of the concrete to enhance the existing texture. The color pools in low areas during the application process. The result is a highly textured and multi-toned Old World appearance.
