Concrete Floors

Concrete Floors are an easy and practical option when it comes to choice of flooring.  Concrete Floors can either be left as polished concrete for a natural look or easily painted for a solid coloured look.  Polished Concrete Floors work well when creating an Industrial Interior and team back nicely against timbers, metals, stone and other natural materials.  Neutral painted Concrete Floors are ideal for earthy organic spaces or even ideal for Minimalistic Interiors.  Or if you want to have a bit of fun, then think about adding a bold colour to your painted Concrete Floor, or even adding some stencils to create your own floor tiles.  The options are really endless when it comes to Concrete Floors.  We have found some easy ideas in how you can add Concrete Floors to your space no matter your decorating style. 

Tip: Some people are turned off by Concrete Floors because they believe they are "too cold".  Yes, they are cooler than timber flooring but if you think they look too cold then you can easily add large floor rugs to the space for that warm under foot and think about adding warm textures and materials to your space such as timber, rattan, velvets or even warm paint colours.  By adding these textures and a warm colour palette it'll instantly take away that sterile cold feeling many people associate with Concrete Floors and make your space feel warmer and more inviting.  If you choose to opt for polished Concrete Floors, then you will want to seal your concrete to resist against stains and spills.  We suggest applying an easy to you hardwearing polyurethane to your Concrete Floor such as Crommelin PU51.  If you are unsure which product is suitable for your project, send us an email to info@directpaint.com.au and we will be happy to answer any questions and to lead you in the right direction.
