Adding decorative concrete to your home or commercial space is a great way to improve the existing appearance of concrete or simply add your own personal touch to the overall aesthetic. Decorative concrete can be obtained in a variety of ways, such as adding stamps or stencils to have your concrete look like other materials, or adding a stain to it to alter its hues and shades. Whatever you want, we’ve likely got the solution to help you customize your concrete any way you want!
Concrete staining is done by adding a slight color dye to the surface layer of your concrete to alter its shade and give it a new and refreshed appearance. If you’re tired of having concrete that looks boring, standard, and unattractive, why not consider concrete staining to revamp its aesthetic? Concrete staining doesn’t alter the integrity of your concrete itself, nor does staining damage any surrounding areas that your concrete touches either (i.e. the walls, furniture, or crown molding). Instead, concrete staining is intended to enhance the traditional grey shades of concrete and give it an unprecedented look that will complement your interiors like no other.
Concrete stamping is the process of using a stencil to apply a light pattern or design into your concrete while it is still wet. This is often done all over the concrete or on a specific area, where you want the concrete to stand out or appear different than standard concrete. You can easily have concrete stamps applied to your surface to mimic the appearance of tiles, bricks, and stones. This is often a cheaper and more durable alternative to actual tiles, bricks, and stones, for long-term use, as concrete requires less maintenance and upkeep than the mentioned materials.
Concrete has long been used for interior building purposes as well. Many clients in newer builds will often opt for concrete to be used in their walls because its versatile and gives them the freedom to customize it as they see fit. Concrete walls also provide other great benefits too, such as soundproofing rooms and reflecting light for brighter, more natural rooms. Concrete is also a cooling material, which can help regulate the interior temperatures of a room as well, while keeping in the heat in the winters, as it’s needed.
