For about a decade, stained concrete has made a huge impact on the design scene. Stained concrete offers a unique, high end look for both outdoor and indoor applications and offers a variety of options for homeowners and business owners alike.

Indoor/Outdoor

As more and more homeowners are incorporating outdoor living spaces into their residential design, stamped concrete installers are starting to offer expanded services to create multifunctional outdoor living spaces that include kitchen floors, countertops, walls and more.

Polishing

Hands down, polished concrete is one of the fastest-growing styles of decorative concrete out there, especially in the commercial realm. It lends itself well to modern, minimalist design and offers, unsurprisingly, a polished finish to a space. Polished decorative concrete also melds well with many current design trends. And, since polished concrete is reflective, it can diminish the need for an abundance of artificial light.

Sealing your decorative concrete can also will make it pop. Colors will be intensified and the overall design will be far more pleasing to any eyes laid up it. You can also add sheen to the surface of the concrete. The sheens range from satin to high gloss and everything in between.
