When you think of concrete floors, the words that probably come to mind are “cold” and “industrial”. But with its ability to incorporate colour and a high-shine appearance, coupled with its many other benefits, concrete flooring may become your future home renovation project.
Concrete flooring, sometimes referred to as cement flooring, no longer has to be grey and boring – and it’s not just for sidewalks. In recent years, it has become the material of choice for designers and homeowners alike as it is a stylish design choice. It has been popping up in retail stores, restaurants, offices, and homes throughout Greater Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.
When people are first introduced to decorative interior concrete flooring, they are always shocked by how sleek and modern it looks.
Benefits of Interior Concrete Floors
The top three benefits of interior concrete floors include:
- Great Design Options
A major benefit of interior concrete floors is its affordability, compared to other flooring options. It can be even more cost-effective if you have an existing concrete slab that’s ready for polishing, staining or an application of coating. Furthermore, the lifetime cost of interior concrete floors is low as it requires very little upkeep and will last for years to come. Not to mention, you can cover it at any point in the future if you wish.
Great Design Options
Modern advances in concrete mixing and setting have made it possible to achieve an endless variety of colour and texture effects. Colour can be mixed directly into the concrete before the slab is set. For concrete floors that are already installed, we can either add an acid stain over the surface or use a dye or staining agent. The texture of the concrete can be set smooth during the installation process. Alternatively, decorative patterns can be carved into the surface as it is setting.

A properly sealed and maintained interior concrete floor can last indefinitely. This will save you money, while also eliminating the hassle of having to get new flooring installed every few years. Concrete is extremely durable and difficult to damage. Furniture, high heels, and pet claws will not scratch its surface. Additionally, you won’t have to worry about damage from most dropped items.
Are Interior Concrete Floors the Best Choice
for your Home?
Does anyone in your household suffer from asthma or other respiratory issues? Concrete flooring is not porous, meaning that nothing can get inside the concrete. This eliminates the threat of dust mites, bacteria, and other allergens. To clean the concrete, all you have to do is run a mop over it.
