Concrete floors have been around for a long time and the public has often dismissed them as boring and utilitarian. But homeowners today are discovering the attractiveness and range of possibilities in concrete floors. One motive for choosing a decorative concrete floor is that each is unique—your floor is guaranteed to look different from anyone else’s. When contractors, designers, and owners work together, the results can be creative and stunning. Even old, worn slabs, full of cracks or pock-marked from years of abuse, can be attractive, and the distress may actually make the end result more aesthetically pleasing.
