When it comes to decorating, choosing a concrete floor color can really be a challenge. While you may feel that there are so many choices you’re bound to find the right one, you may also end up feeling that there are so many choices you don’t know where to start!
These tips should really help you if you feel stumped by this important decision. After all, the floor will set the tone for the room.
Take your Time
You’ll want to look at different images and photos of other floors, but hold off making final choices until you’ve developed an overall room scheme. Concrete floor finishes are available in literally an infinite array of colors and textures and can be one of the most versatile elements of your room décor. On the flip side it could be the most difficult and expensive to change. Get ideas but make the final decision after area rugs, wallpaper, paint and fabrics are finalized.
Keep Samples Handy
When you go out, you’ll want to refer to your fabric, tile, wallpaper, and trim samples constantly. Be sure to take everything with you wherever you go. With the increased popularity of Concrete flooring, there is no telling where you might see something you absolutely love.
Tried and True Formula for Colors
Many decorator stores have proven color pallets that work. Find a floor color (not necessarily in concrete) that matches the rest of your scheme and see if your decorative concrete professional can mimic the color but in concrete. Many professionals can mimic tile, paint, wood or other color swatches.
Choose the Right Floor Finish for the Job
Consider which floor finish is be best for your project. Matte or flat finishes help to hide unevenness or ripples, while glossier finishes will reflect more light and show every undulation but offer a high end shine.
