Concrete Floors

Concrete? Really? Well, we're not talking about the cold, gray concrete that's out in your garage. Concrete is, of course, that mixture of sand, water, and cement, but it can be tinted and textured into whatever style you want. It can be made to be smooth and seamless or have the look of a tiled floor – at much less cost than tiles or natural stone. Another nice custom touch is when pebbles or broken glass are added to the concrete for a truly one-of-a-kind floor.
