The Many Uses for Decorative Concrete in Your Home

Modern Kitchen Concrete

Are you looking for a way to spruce up your home? More importantly, are you looking for a way to give your home a makeover without dipping into your savings account? If you answered yes to either of these questions, we've got great news. One of the simplest and least expensive ways to give any home a new form of character is by decorating your concrete. From concrete floors to  bathrooms sinks , or even the concrete walls in your basement, concrete paint can be used in so many ways.

Vertical advantages

You've probably heard of concrete stamped floors, but did you know you can use the same process to liven up the walls in your home? That's right. Any concrete surfaces in your home can easily be stamped, and this is especially advantageous for homes that are currently in the process of being built. However, don't think that just because your home has already been constructed that you can't take advantage of concrete stamped walls and floors. With a  cement wall overlay , any vertical or horizontal concrete surface in your home can easily be stamped, giving your home character that you've always dreamed about.

Concrete stamps and paint

Concrete stamps and paint were at one time limited to floors and walls, but not anymore. In fact, everything from fireplaces to bathroom sinks can be painted and stamped with concrete overlays. It doesn't matter if your fireplace mantle is made of wood or if your countertops are made of Formica, they can still be over-layed with stamped concrete and decorative concrete paint. And even when using the overlays on your walls, there's no need to fear that your walls will sag.

Painting your floors

It may seem a little odd, but painting your concrete floors with concrete paint is an excellent way to save money on flooring materials. Plus, the look of painted concrete floors will bring a historic and natural look to any home.

Hiring a concrete contractor

You can hire a concrete contractor who specializes in painting and stamping concrete if you don't want to take on a stamped concrete or painting project. However, keep in mind there are many concrete painting and stamping tasks that are easy to carry out by yourself when you have the right DIY training.
