Can you create this wood distressed concrete on the floor?
wall and floor in your awesome bath project? Thx., Kathy
Is the floor slate or Pietra cardosa? or something else?
How did you install/support the floating glass vanity counter top?
board-formed concrete (it is a retaining wall) and the floor is black slate. We held the boards apart about a 3/4" to get the pronounced horizontal texture where the concrete seeped out during the pour. Drove the contractor crazy but loved the result!
This wall and floor combination are truly beautiful
formed concrete with a wider gap between boards to get the more pronounced seams and texture.
I suppose you could use this pattern on the floor using wood boards to create the pattern when the concrete is still wet but it would be fairly rough and may be difficult to execute

design from floor to ceiling. The open tresses and gorgeous wood tones fill the home with light and warmth, especially since everything in the home is reflecting off the gorgeous black polished concrete floor. As a material for use in the home, concrete is top notch. As the longest lasting flooring solution
available concrete’s durability can’t be beat. It’s cost effective, gorgeous, long lasting and let’s not forget the possibility of ambient heat! There is truly nothing like the feeling of a heated bathroom floor warm against your socks in the morning. Good design is easy to come by, but great design requires

level floor across concrete and timber like this?
Do you lay 2 levels of concrete and then lay the timber on the lower part, or can you lay a thin layer of concrete of the consistency required for flooring on top of an even concrete base? I love the idea of concrete flooring but want to spruce it
to the floor. Please help!
countertop is concrete. The surface has a slight texture from corn husks. It gave a more natural look rather than a stark utilitarian feel. Happy you like it!
Yes indeed the countertop is concrete. The surface has a slight texture from corn husks. It gave a more natural look rather than a stark utilitarian
Your floor is beautiful. Is it acid etched, or was a different process used?

Floor is absolutely gorgeous!! I have a concrete basement floor, gray. Can I achieve this look? How? Thank you!
Can you have underfloor heating with polished concrete floors?
Is the concrete floor sealed? If so, with what
troweled concrete slab than anything I've seen yet. Regards, Vincent Cathcart VC Studio Inc. firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes you can! The heating cables are installed into the concrete.
Please tell me how to install concrete in some areas and wood in others and have them all the same height. How is that done in this house?
WHAT KIND OF FLOOR IS THIS WOOD OR TILE
What company makes the cork floors in this picture?
include cork floors in the house I'm building.
These are stained concrete floors, not cork flooring. Sorry!
or cork flooring in a very light color that somehow can give me this feeling . So few products come in shades similar to stained concrete and that ones that do are expense for me.Or do I choose a black wood floor since no other color seems to match all the elements in the house yet this floor may make
do the concrete!!!..... who cares about your neighbors? they're probably just jealous.

I can't tell if it's a white or a light gray. We're doing polished concrete floors, and I'm trying to decide
apply this concrete floor finish over wood floor const.
I love this dove gray concrete. Was this acheived with a mechanical polish (diamond polish) or just a sealer like an epoxy or polyurethane?
It's polished, natural finish concrete. A beautiful soft grey
stained concrete floor in a residence? Do you need to polish and/or reseal yearly, every 3 years, etc? Only 2 residents so not a ton of foot traffic...

has a concrete floor, the concrete is perfectly smooth and clean. Would we want/need to use the foam underlay and secondly what would be the best method of securing it? I'm pretty flexible as to options.
laminate floors on my new home. Didn't like the look. But I like what you've done here! Just curious if I could sand and seal my plywood subfloors, or if I have to get speciality plywood.
How durable is the floor over time?
plywood floor holding up over time? Would you do it again?
under the floor. And three, it acts as a vapor barrier which is specifically beneficial for your installation, especially if your concrete floor is slab on grade. The foam underlayment doesn’t itself need to be secured to the concrete. It will stay put from the weight of the plywood floor on top of it.

Love the floors. Is this acid stained or integral colored concrete? Are those just score lines?
I have a outside cover sitting area with a cement ceiling, is there anyway that wood paneling can be installed
Love the floor! What color stain is this?
What company did you use to stain the concrete?
My sister in-law is renovating a place in Napa and needs to find a good company to stain their concrete floors
as the floor we could be assured that the results in the actual floor would be Ashlee close match. A good resource are he FuTon Cheng books on concrete and concrete finishes. Well illustrated with many tips and a good source of practical info and inspiration. Good luck. Cathy
is new concrete. We had 2 or 3 roughly two x two feet by a coupke of inch high skid forms which were filled with concrete during the pour if the floor. They were deeply tooled to create a gridded pattern for us to use for testing. Then by trial and error we created samples and because if was the same
