Home Buying Is Easier When You Know Your Remodeling Options

While I am not a professional contractor, I have a good friend who is. He often calls and tells me about his days and I have learned a lot about home renovations and remodeling options just listening to his stories. Knowing my home remodeling options greatly aided the shopping experience when I was ready to purchase my first home. I wanted to live in a location close to my family, and there were limited homes on the market in the area. However, due to knowing what changes could be made to an existing home, I was able to find a good house that I knew I could make great with just a few changes after I bought it. I was recently inspired to create a blog to share what I have learned about home renovations with anyone who would like to read it!

3 Reasons To Go With Decorative Concrete For Your Floor Installation

If you are looking to switch out your flooring, you obviously have multiple options available when it comes to your choice of materials. If you are interested in going with a more unique option, however, you might want to take a look at the benefits of decorative concrete.

Strong Durability

If your last type of flooring was prone to picking up a lot of scratches or other issues, you might enjoy the long-term durability that decorative concrete can provide. Whereas wood and vinyl flooring can pick up scratches quite easily if you are not careful, decorative concrete can stand up to much more abuse without any visible changes. This could be beneficial if you are installing it in a high-traffic area or have small children or pets who will frequently be running through the area.

Very Low Maintenance

Install wood flooring and you will likely have to clean and wax it on a regular basis if you want to keep it in good condition. Even carpeting requires a bit of scrubbing every once in a while. Decorative concrete on the other hand requires very little ongoing maintenance. You can simply wash it down with some soap and water if you notice dirt beginning to accumulate but that's about all you'll need to do. That long-term durability we just talked about means you won't have to worry about performing regular upkeep for quite some time, if at all.

Save Money

Many homes already have a concrete floor underneath some other kind of flooring. A decorative concrete design can simply be stained over your existing concrete without the need for an additional pour. Just stain the design, let it settle and then seal it to ensure longevity and you'll be good to go. Not having to actually install any new materials will save you a good deal of money. Even if you do pour new concrete for the floor, that long-term durability and low maintenance we've cited will continue to save you save you money year after year.

Creative Designs

Decorative concrete can also provide opportunity to install a unique design. A skilled decorative concrete artist can paint a mural or special design right on your floor. Place your favorite school or sports team's logo on the floor of your garage. Consider adding different colors in different areas of the room for an especially unique look.
