Decorative concrete floors provide a unique and beautiful look to any space while being affordable and durable. In this post four types of decorative concrete floors will be explored. These ensure that anyone can have the look they desire for their space in the form of a cost-effective and strong floor.

Acid Stain

Staining is one of the most popular and attractive forms of decorative concrete finish. They are cost-effective, easy to apply, and the only finish that works with the natural beauty of concrete rather than hiding it entirely. It creates a smooth, colorful, and glossy finish. It has been popularly used in art museums, hotels, hotels,  luxury lofts, and home terraces. It’s very modern and chic. It is important to note, however, that color selection is limited when it comes to these types of stains.


It is common to trowel-down a textured finish over concrete. A thin layer of water resistant cement is thrown over the top and troweled to create a pattern that looks like natural slate or another stone finish. It is a great way to achieve the look of natural stone without the high price of the stone.

Stamped Overlays

If you already have a slab of concrete down and want to jazz it up, this option is ideal. In this method, the surface is stamped with any texture you want. First, a thin layer of water-resistant texture is put over top, and then it is stamped to your specifications. Different combinations of texture and color can be used to evoke the look of everything from red brick to natural slate without their extensive cost.


Knockdowns are added over concrete.These come in unending varieties and are textured non-slip surfaces that are as practical as they are beautiful.
