Interior Concrete Floors
5 PROJECTS WITH POPULAR DESIGNS
This retail store's beach and ocean theme was enhanced with a variegated concrete floor. Using a turquoise acid stain, Matt Hine of Progressive Concrete Coatings in Wilmington, NC, was able to incorporate the aqua color of the store's logo into the concrete floor.
John Carney, owner of Art Over Concrete in Murfreesboro, Tennessee took inspiration from the large rectangular windows in this bedroom to create slate-textured rectangular panels on the floor. Then he used a Modello stencil to create an 8.5' by 10.5' concrete rug in front of the grand fireplace.
In this home's study, Lorena Herriot, owner of Image-N-Concrete in Colorado, used a strong mix of dark walnut color to achieve a deep dark brown. The intent was to create a masculine look to blend with the walnut paneled walls. The floors were completed by adding an accurately placed engraved compass in the center of the room.
Using a polymer modified overlay, Doug Armitage of General Concrete Finishers in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan revamped a home's entire main floor creating a natural, marble-like effect. Covering the existing concrete, the overlay was a stunning resemblance to marble and natural stone with mottled mottled csolors that added depth and warmth to the home.
Stamped and Textured Floors
In a home designed to look like a castle, Tony and Terry Leos of Creative Concrete Solutions in Selma, TX were challenged to design the floors to look like wood planks and custom stone. Concrete can be textured with concrete stamps, skins and other types of tools to achieve a raised texture suitable for an interior floor.
