3 Benefits to having polished concrete floors

Are you building a new home and thinking of what kind of flooring you’d like to install in your house? Or maybe you just want to change the look of your living room and change the wood flooring to something else.

Getting concrete flooring may have never crossed your mind, but there is a reason why they are getting more popular nowadays. When people hear concrete flooring, all they see are the hard, cold and gray flooring seen in warehouses. Although the industrial look can be seen in many establishments, they never thought that it could be for their homes.

There’s also the cold factor, as concrete floors cannot retain heat as well as other types of flooring. But that can be remedied by using thick carpets and rugs, especially during the cold months.


In recent years, homeowners have realized the many benefits of concrete flooring. If you want to know about the benefits, read through some of them below.

  1. They are durable and will last for many years – the reason why they are popular for industrial buildings is that they are tough and can withstand pressure from heavy equipment and heavy vehicles such as trucks. This means that when they are put in homes, they can last for years and years to come. This is good news for homeowners knowing their floors cannot be damaged easily, whether by furniture or animals.


  1. They are economical and easy to maintain – when opting for concrete flooring, homeowners will be able to save a lot of money as they are cheap compared to the usual flooring being used for homes. Aside from that, it does not take much to maintain and keep it looking clean and beautiful. While it does need to be waxed every few months so that the protective layer is maintained, other than that any regular cleaning agent can be used for the floor.


  1. There are many design options available – one of the reasons that homeowners did not consider concrete flooring is because they think it only comes in one color, but that is far from the truth. With the advancement in technology, homeowners can now be more creative with the design they can choose for their concrete flooring. Aggregates can be introduced to the flooring to create unique designs. The concrete flooring can even look like wood by stamping wet concrete with imprints to make it look like wood. Different colors are also available for those who don’t want the usual colors. There are so many designs and options to choose from that homeowners will have a hard time choosing just what look they would like to have for their homes.

If you want concrete flooring in your home, you need to make sure that you get professionals to do it for you. You don’t want to spend money and get a floor that has not been installed or polished properly.

    My husband and I are in the process of remodeling and redecorating our home, and I really want to make it different and modern. I like how you point out that having polished, concrete floors can be a great option because they are very durable, and they are also easy to maintain. I also think it could give us that edgy look we are going for.

    I like that you mention how it can be helpful concrete flooring can be from a maintenance perspective. It makes sense that industrial and commercial applications use it for good reason, it’s a cinch to clean and maintain. This could be very helpful to remember because it can be very durable and strong while being as simple to maintain as sweeping and mopping. Thanks for the post!

    My basement is almost finished now, and the floor is concrete. I was thinking that maybe I should put something over it, but I am kind of starting to like how it looks. So I like how you say that polished concrete doesn’t take a lot to keep maintained and clean. That is definitely a plus, so I’ll just have to find someone who can polish my floor and make it look nice for me.

    I love how you said that a concrete floor is cheap to have because it isn’t hard to maintain or anything like that. Getting a concrete polishing done would probably also help because that would provide a barrier to protect the concrete further. Maybe I’ll have to do this inside of my shed because that would be really nice to not have to worry about cleaning so much.

    I never took into account that having polished concrete flooring is low maintenance since it only needs to be waxed every few months. This may be the reason why my mother has been bugging my father about changing the flooring of their shop. When I went to their shop yesterday, I noticed that there are damaged parts of their flooring due to the coming and going of their customers. I hope they find a good contractor soon. Thanks!

    I agree, a big reasons to choose concrete flooring is because it is easy to maintain. After all, unlike carpet, it is hard for dirt and grime to get lost on the floor. Anything you spill or break will be easy to see and clean up off of the solid, concrete floor.

    That makes sense that concrete can withstand forces from heavy equipment. I guess it’s pretty tough. I hear it’s affordable and hypo-allergenic as well- maybe I’ll get concrete floors installed in my home.
