Most people might consider using concrete for constructing exterior structures or for a basement. But, you might be surprised to hear that concrete can be a great material for interior flooring. Here are some ways that concrete is beneficial for interior flooring.
Concrete flooring may conjure up mental images of industrial warehouses and basements, which is the reason many people don’t think it will look great in other parts of the house. But there are many ways to modify concrete to fit the overall style of any room. From resurfacing it with an acid wash, infusing it with dyes, and even putting stencils in the design, the choices are limitless. Concrete is very easy to customize because of its liquid nature. Many people also have heating pipes added during installation to make their concrete floors heated on cold days.
One distinct advantage that concrete has over other types of interior floors is its strength and durability. It can resist damage much better than most types of tile, and water doesn’t affect it nearly as much as hardwood flooring. You should also have a water-resistant sealant added to your concrete floor to make it even more durable. And because it is poured, it will fit any area like a glove, reducing the risk of weak spots or gaps. The only real concern with concrete is that it tends to develop cracks over time, but all of these are simple to repair.
Last but not least, concrete floors are great for interior spaces because of how easy they are to care for. Especially with sealed concrete floors, you will find that they are incredibly easy to clean and very resistant to stains. You can mop them and sweep them like any regular floor.
