At EcoGrind, we recently had the task of working on a semi-open outdoor area.

This Coburg polished concrete floor turned out spectacular, bringing a sense of elegance and class to the viewing area overlooking the backyard.

Benefits of Polished Concrete Floors in an Outdoor Area

Polished concrete floors are not just for indoor areas – they work just as well outdoors and are fuss-free! To liven up your backyard, patio or lanai, why not opt for an economical polished concrete floor?


For one, it is easy to maintain and clean. The coating we apply here at EcoGrind prevents the concrete from chipping or scratching so it will stay just as fresh as day one! There are a variety of coatings to choose from (Epoxy, Acrylic and Polyurethane). They each offer a different type of protection, thickness and look. Read more about the different sealers here.

The coating and polishing of the concrete allows for a resistant surface. So you can wipe up a spill or mop up after an evening outdoors without the need of any special products – just warm water and soap!

The floors are also one smooth surface, meaning no cracks that collect bacteria or dirt. This is why polished concrete floors are so popular for the modern home – their dust and mite resistance comes in handy when cleaning and for allergen sensitive guests or occupants!

Plus, the coating doesn’t need to be maintained like wooden floors or tiles. No need for polishes, grout cleaners or waxes for this Coburg polished concrete floor! Meaning less money spent and more time enjoying the outdoors.

Your polished concrete floors will last for a long while in pristine condition making it a worth-while investment.

Looks Matter

Secondly, polished concrete floors look amazing! This Coburg polished concrete floor is no exception. The choice of bold shine and a speckled black and white pattern complements the red brick home and looks very chic.

The choices are endless when it comes to pattern, colour and shine level. The level of shine can be determined both with the amount of grinding that is done to the concrete and with the type of sealer. The pattern and colour can be added into the

the concrete or colour added into the sealer – or both! At EcoGrind, we’ll help you mix and match to your hearts content to find a floor that suits your outdoor area perfectly.

As seen in the Coburg polished floor, the shine reflects the sun and the gorgeous outdoor area. Plus, with the lights on in the evening, a beautiful glow would manifest from the reflection of the sealer.

Although the floor is quite glossy, it still maintains and modern and fresh appeal that will remain in great condition for years to come.
