Objects of Desire: Beautifully Individual Concrete Floors, Via Houzz.com

Concrete comes in more colors and finishes than ever before. See if these 6 floors open your eyes to the possibilities

If you have pets, kids or a clumsy housemate, chances are that durability is a top priority when it comes to choosing finishes in your home. And perhaps no flooring material is as durable as concrete. It is also sustainable and budget-friendly, works well with radiant heat and comes in an ever-expanding array of colors and textures, all factors that help explain why it’s so popular.The look of concrete depends on two main factors: the aggregate particle mix that makes up the actual concrete, and the color. Color can be achieved via the aggregate itself, mixing colored powder or liquid into the aggregate (integral color), acid etching, staining or using a tinted wax. Both the color and texture can also be altered by polishing, which exposes more of the aggregate, and sealing. You might also consider adding a coat of wax to create a gloss or matte finish, although this can also darken the color.
