Concrete Coatings to Give Plain Surfaces the Look of Custom Luxury Floors

by Vanessa Douglas

There are many areas around your home where you may have unsightly concrete surfaces. These can be patios outside or a concrete slab in areas like basements. Today, there are options for custom coatings that can bring these surfaces to life. The following ideas can help you know how to make your surfaces look luxurious. 

Textured Epoxy with Color

One reason why you may be looking into concrete coating is to make surfaces safer. These can be coatings that you apply to garages or slick outdoor surfaces. There are epoxy coatings that have colors and textured materials in them. These textured epoxy coatings help to improve the appearance of surfaces and make them safer. In addition, these surfaces are also easier to clean than an untreated concrete finish.

Create Tile-Like Finishes

Tile-like finishes can also be created using colored concrete coatings. These finishes can be a great way to create the look of tile with a more durable finish. The great thing about using epoxy coatings for these finishes is that they give you a lot of creative options. The tile patterns can be solid colors, or they can be custom finishes that simulate the look of materials like natural stone.

Designs with Concrete Coatings

You may also want to consider custom and artistic designs for your concrete coating finishes. These custom designs can be patterns and abstract artistic finishes. The custom designs are great to add custom floors to the interior of a basement or areas like outdoor living space. Ask to look at the contractor's portfolio to get ideas to add these unique finishes to your home. You can also find artistic examples to use for ideas to create unique custom concrete finishes for your project.

Acid Staining with Protective Coatings 

Acid stains are great choices to give concrete surfaces custom finishes. The benefit of staining is that it can be used to simulate the look of other materials and create custom designs. The acid stained concrete can look like elegant stone floors and costs a lot less. Once the acid staining processes have been completed, the concrete will need to be coated with clear epoxy. The protective coating will make the floors shine and prevent wear.

These are some custom concrete coating options to give plain surfaces around your home the look of luxury flooring. Call a concrete coating service and talk to them about your options.
