Why You Should Consider Concrete Floors in Kitchens
Building or renovating your home? Trying to figure out the best flooring options for your kitchen? Think concrete floors in kitchens from Eco Grind!
Concrete floors in kitchens. Interesting concept. This is an on-trend flooring option, and with good reason! It’s sustainable, looks good, is easy to clean and maintain – there are so many reasons to love it.
It’s sustainable and economical
Concrete floors in kitchens are a sustainable and economical design option because it utilises materials that are already present in the space. Once a great option for commercial spaces, it’s now been adapted for residential areas too. Minimum resources are needed to implement it. Therefore, concrete flooring is good for the environment and even better for your hip pocket!
Polished concrete floors are hard wearing and durable. Unlike other flooring options (like timber), they won’t chip. This is why they’ve always been considered the ideal floor for heavy-traffic commercial areas like workshops, showrooms and such. Now it’s making its way steadily into homes all over the country. Who doesn’t want a kitchen floor that can withstand damage? It’s one of the most used rooms in any home, so it only makes sense.
There are many colour options and finishes
You won’t be subjected to a boring range of colours and finishes. Quite the opposite. Heavy duty polishing machines equipped with diamond abrasive grits will grind down the surface of the floor to the desired level of shine and smoothness. It doesn’t matter the condition of your existing or new floors – true experts will evaluate your floors and convert to any type of polished concrete you prefer.
You decide on exposure and gloss levels
There are different levels of exposure. Full exposure is when the concrete is grinded all the way down to achieve maximum exposure of stones. Random exposure means you’ll get a lovely salt and pepper finish. And nil exposure requires a very experienced person to remove only the top crust. When it comes to gloss, you can have a satin finish which is scratch resistant and long-lasting. Or a gloss finish will add a stunning shine.
