Decorative Concrete: Cheap, Sleek, and Chic
Decorative concrete is very different from sidewalk variety concrete. It is a versatile building material that is not only cheap, but can be easily manipulated to fit your needs.
A decorative concrete floor can be started with a basic concrete slab.
Concrete can be stamped, stained, stenciled, colored, painted, etched, cut, buffed or textured to match any décor. It can look like stone, marble, tile or wood and can be completed in any color.
Concrete flooring is also clean and cuts down on the amount of allergens trapped in your home.
It is easy to maintain, holds up in any climate and is considered to be an environmentally friendly product.
Decorative concrete can also be used for custom countertops. It is significantly cheaper than alternative products and can mimic stone or marble. Again, it can be colored to match any existing décor.
Concrete countertops are ideal for an outdoor kitchen or grilling station, as they withstand inclement weather much better than traditional countertops.
They can also be formed with a void in the middle to accept an under-mounted sink. With no lip, countertop debris can be swept directly into the sink for disposal.
Another decorative concrete option is the precast concrete tile. Made to mimic natural stone or ceramic tile, this product is not only environmentally friendly but can be made in any shape or size and colored to match its surroundings exactly.
