Creating your perfect polished concrete floor starts
with some important questions.
Do you like the Zen minimalist look of plain concrete?
Applying the HiPERFLOOR™ process to a plain concrete floor brings out all the sensual beauty of the material.
Do you want to add some colour?
Then clicking the CCS Cement Colour Chart will give you some idea of what’s available. Just bare in mind that printed colour charts can only approximate the real product. When you have an idea of what you want contact us and we can meet with you in person to show you the full range of manufactured samples.
Decide the level of exposure you desire
Everyone has a different taste. A steel trowelled floor has the subtle variations of colour that come from the natural curing process of concrete, which means that being a natural product made by hand, no two slabs will ever look the same. Like making a great espresso coffee or bottle of wine, its part science and part art, which is just the way we like it! A salt and pepper finish is the first toe in the water of exposure, deepening by degrees to full exposure of the stone, which can look like a floor scattered with gem stones.
We have collected and polished some of the more commonly used stone in concrete mixes to help you decide which stone colours and sizes you like. But there’s more! There is a vast array of specialist stone used in landscaping and other industries which we can source for you when we start to work on your own unique design.
How much shine do you want on your floor?
We can make the same floor with high gloss, gloss and matt finishes. We can also provide low slip surfaces for outside and bathroom areas and still have the same integrated look throughout your home.
And finally for the adventurous (or just plain playful) there’s a whole host of products that have been used in polished concrete, including coloured glass, semi-precious stones, crystals, stencil designs using acid stains, etching to give a gloss out pattern, even gold dust and gold leaf has been used. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. So when you’re ready to make your own unique floor let us help!
