Has it been getting harder to maintain the smooth concrete flooring in your living room? Well, you are not alone facing this problem. Smooth concrete flooring is very hard to maintain, especially with all the traffic going around. The easiest solution is going for a naturally stained look. Using acid, you can integrate dramatic effects of the concrete that look similar to marbling. You also get a higher depth of color that would lack in any other flooring material. Let’s take a look at some examples of stained concrete flooring to get a better idea.

A uniform color and smoothness in texture doesn’t really work with a concrete floor. Over time, the flooring is supposed to get worn out and you will come across irregular patches all over? So, why not make these patches a part of your design? Stained concrete floors bring forth a texture that will look better over time. As you can see in this example, there’s a unique look to the flooring that adds depth to the space.
