Concrete floors can be stained, sanded and sealed just like hardwoods. The process is done using a special chemical that reacts with the minerals in concrete to permanently change its color into something rich and unique. Concrete's reaction will vary depending on how old it is or what sorts of natural variances are present in there mineral deposits - this creates an interesting effect when ground down smooth then polished up for a high shine.
Concrete floors are a great option for any home, but they can be too hard on the feet and impractical if you have children. When glass falls onto concrete it will break into many shards which could cause injury to your family or guests - making this material unsuitable for areas with lots of foot traffic such as kitchens. Not many Concrete contractors are well versed in concrete staining. If someone trips over something in their path then that person risks having more than just sore toes; so when installing one make sure there is plenty of space around furniture to avoid accidents! A rug may not only help soften up those soles but also add some color accents in a room while giving an otherwise plain floor texture adding depth to the architecture.
