The three main choices to make when choosing your specific polished concrete floor are:
1. Procedure: Grind and Seal or Mechanically Polished Concrete
2. Exposure: Nil, minimum or full stone exposure
3. Finish: The options available are basically matte, semi-gloss or high Gloss.
Your personal preference is our guide to assisting you in attaining one of many looks that can be achieved with gloss levels to polished concrete floors – the matte finish is used for the more industrial/rustic look which is now being favoured by many interior designers wanting the raw material to work with furnishings and fittings in homes, shops, and other commercial spaces.
The semi-gloss is a popular choice, widely used as it doesn’t show up the dust as much as the high gloss, but still has a beautiful shine. The high gloss is for those who are looking for the wow factor and lends itself to the glamourous, high end areas. Although requiring a bit more maintenance as it can show when the floor is not spotless, this small point is outweighed by the incredible look of high gloss polished concrete finish.
