If you’re a business owner, there’s no doubt that you’d probably agree that you’re a different breed; perhaps cut from a different cloth, some might say. You’re always looking to improve your business in some form or fashion, while also being mindful of your bottom line. While it’s a fine line to walk, at the end of the day, if it doesn’t make cents, it doesn’t make sense, right? But at the same time, savvy business owners – especially those with a storefront – are also familiar with what looks professional and appeals to their customers and clients.
Upgrade to Polished Concrete
If you’re looking for the perfect upgrade to your facility that makes a huge impact visually, without the huge hit financially, few things have the overall impact that a polished concrete floor does. Think for a second about your local big-box, DIY home improvement superstore… Yes, that one… Or even the other one… Maybe even that huge discount membership club you go to for the cases of toilet paper… Those are some huge companies that could afford to put any type of flooring in their locations, regardless of cost – but they choose polished concrete, time and again. Why? Because it’s inexpensive, easy to do, and requires little to no maintenance over the life of the business. Trust their business acumen and think for a moment that if they’ve chosen polished concrete floors for their hundreds of locations, perhaps you should choose it for your location(s), as well!
What is Polished Concrete?
Basically, it’s a concrete floor that’s been ground with a high-speed floor grinder/burnisher outfitted with a diamond-coated sanding disk or pad to create a high-gloss finish that is both durable and incredibly beautiful. The result is a nearly indestructible floor surface that doesn’t require constant waxing or coating (although you can choose to wax it for additional shine, too).
Why Polished Concrete?
While there are dozens of reasons why a polished concrete is better than any other type of flooring for a commercial setting, the greatest factors pertain to its advantages when it comes to form and function.
- Form– It’s sleek and doesn’t detract from other design aspects. It offers a clean, simple aesthetic that also feels elevated and luxurious, especially when polished and waxed. Speaking of which, a polished concrete floor shines, brightening a room. Its gloss can also reflect natural light upward, giving a room perceived height and loft. For even more design appeal, a concrete floor can be stained to match or accentuate the surrounding decor.
- Function– Durable and long-lasting, polished concrete floors are versatile enough for the heavy traffic you’d find in a showroom, yet durable enough for a warehouse and its forklift traffic and untold weight loads. Because it’s low maintenance, you won’t have to pay for the labor and material cost of constant care and upkeep. Not to mention, the relative ease and expense of installing a polished concrete floor pales in comparison to the cost associated with other flooring alternatives.
