One of the most popular trends in home and business renovation is stained concrete. If you’re looking to freshen up your space, this is a great alternative to replacing your current flooring. There’s nothing boring about stained concrete. In fact, you’d be shocked to know that it is:
1. Extremely durable
Concrete is the most durable surface available on the market. It’s even stronger than gravel, pavers, and asphalt, making it the perfect choice for your driveway or indoor flooring. Builders choose concrete over other materials for patios, floors, walkways, and pool decks for good reason: it holds up.
Like any surface, when left untreated, discoloration and damage due to usage, weather, and spills may occur. Once you start to notice this, staining your concrete is one of the best ways to restore your drab, gray concrete and give it a stunning finish.
2. Requires little to no maintenance
With all the kids at home right now, you’re likely having to clean your floors more than usual. This can be such a pain, vacuuming and scrubbing your life away. With a stained concrete floor, you will no longer have to worry about trapping allergens, dust, and debris or constantly cleaning your floors. Stained concrete takes far less effort to clean due to its resistance to bacteria and mold growth, dust buildup, and moisture.
One of the most budget-friendly ways to renovate your floors is with stained concrete. Larger floors will see bigger savings. Kitchens, family rooms, circular driveways, pool decks, and basements are good places to start. Stained concrete can produce stunning effects that resemble precious stone, at a fraction of the cost.
The reason it’s so affordable is because it can be applied to your existing surface and last for decades. There’s no need to spend a fortune replacing your old, cracked floor–instead, a stained concrete overlay will revamp it for a much lower price.
4. Exceedingly versatile when it comes to design
Do not confuse stained concrete with regular drab concrete. They’re two completely different ends of the spectrum. With an endless array of design options to choose from, stained concrete is extremely versatile and far from boring. You can choose any color imaginable to get any effect that you desire, and coordinate it with your interior or exterior design. Stains can even be used to mimic the look of polished marble or stone.
