It is difficult not to notice concrete these days, for clearly they are on the rise. Whereas marble tiles or carpeting were the preferred methods of flooring just two decades ago, polished concrete now dominate the scene. Why do people choose concrete polishing? This article talks about the various reasons why it is simply the best option available on the market right now.
When most of us hear the word “concrete”, the image that pops up in our mind is usually that of an unfinished construction site. Rarely do we attribute it to the magnificent flooring showcased by more and more businesses lately, and this is perfectly understandable. Compared to it’s competitors, Polished Concrete Floors are a relatively new idea, and it will take a while for it to sink in: Concrete is beautiful.
A Polished Concrete Floor is exactly that; concrete that has been polished with the latest innovations with the purpose of it being part of interior design. If your home has concrete underneath, then most likely you can have it polished for a crisp, sleek look. You won’t believe how exquisite the finish is! Even if the concrete on your home needs a lot of patchwork, you just need to put a new layer down before you polish. Any experienced contractor can help you out.Read More...

You’ve probably heard about bamboo flooring recently. After all, this interesting type of flooring has been getting a lot of attention.
However, you might not know exactly what is meant by bamboo as a flooring material. While you’re pretty sure it’s not a series of round poles, it can be hard to envision flooring made from bamboo if you’ve never seen it.
Unlike hardwoods used for flooring like oak and walnut, bamboo is classified as a grass, even though it doesn’t look much like one.
That’s because bamboo is one of the biggest grasses in the world, and can be mistaken for a tree. Some species can grow up to a foot across and a hundred feet high.
Despite its grassy classification, you’ll find that flooring made from bamboo still has a lot in common with hardwood as a floor material. Maintenance is done in the same way, and this flooring offers a similar look.
Like wooden floors, tile, linoleum and other hard, smooth surfaces, you’ll find that bamboo is hypo-allergenic, offering no place for allergens to hide. However, unlike tile and linoleum, it’s much warmer feeling, and often more attractive.Read More...
