Polished concrete flooring is becoming one of the most popular choices for modern homes. Not only does it look amazing, it also has heaps of other positives! So how exactly are concrete floors made and what do you need to do to maintain them?

What is it? – Polished concrete flooring is created by treating and grinding the existing concrete slab, the look of the concrete will depend on the grade and finish, that is why each polished concrete floor looks different.

Sustainable – Choosing polished concrete is also a sustainable choice, as you are just using the existing floor and not introducing another material.

Easy to maintain – Concrete flooring is easy to maintain, who doesn’t want that?!  It’s an easy surface to clean by just vacuuming and mopping and it doesn’t show up dirt and marks.

Durable – Polished concrete is one of the most durable flooring options around! Unlike wooden floor boards or tiles, polished concrete is quite resistant to chips and stains, it is also moisture resistant, meaning it is very long lasting.

It is modern and chic and suits a super minimal aesthetic, while also looking amazing in a boho or industrial style abode.
