Since concrete is no longer reserved for commercial uses; it can also be used in the home for floors, walls, pathways, and driveways. In addition to the standard concrete driveway and garage floor, it can also be polished to a beautiful sheen with a rock-like appearance, and used for details like a kitchen sink or a garden bench. Furthermore, concrete can be colored with pigments that are added to the mixture before curing, so it can turn out any color desired. Because polished concrete floors and counter tops are usually less expensive than natural stone or wood, choose it instead. In addition, concrete is not as easily scratched, chipped, or broken. Therefore, it is a terrific flooring material for those with allergies, as it is easy to clean of dust and dirt; it doesn’t harbor bacteria, mildew and toxic adhesives like carpets do. Finally, polished concrete floors are bright, clean, and reflect light, which reduces the need for lighting. In conclusion, it’s also possible to produce a terrazzo look by grinding through the top few layers to expose the aggregate.
