Inspiration for a contemporary concrete floor and brown floor family room remodel in Seattle

Concrete Floored Abode - a cabin on Lake WenatcheeContemporary Family Room, Seattle

This home is a cutting edge design from floor to ceiling. The open trusses 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 beaten. 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 a whole package, bigger picture mentality. The Cabin on Lake Wentachee is definitely the whole package from top to bottom. Polished concrete is the new cutting edge of architectural design, and Gelotte Hommas Drivdahl has proven just how stunning the results can be.

    It looks like you applied a top coat to the concrete floor. Is it just a semigloss sealant or did you select an epoxy top coat or do you prefer polyurethane?

    Oh, what a beautiful concrete floor that was made for that home. Did you by chance polished it and how did you do polish it? These questions came to my mind because maybe it's something that I could probably do for my concrete floor of the basement. http://www.atlaspolishing.com/polished-concrete

    The concrete floor looks really great! I wouldn't have guessed that it was actually concrete. What kind of finish does it have to give the glossy brown look to it? http://jlgfloors.com

    The success of a concrete topping over a wood framed floor depends a lot on the structural ability of the floor.....to much flex and improper control joints, and you will have excessive cracking. Also, keep in mind that concrete cracks.....there is no way around that. It is impractical to expect a zero crack floor system when concrete is involved. A structural engineer will be able to recommend some options to stiffening your floor so it can successfully support a concrete topping. Finally, as others have pointed out, concrete is very durable...great for that young family. It is also very difficult to walk on in terms of the 'human body' design. Floors with little to no flex, and a hard surface = worn out legs at the end of a long day, making it a very poor floor choice for older folks. Best of luck.

Stained Concrete FloorThe rich chocolate finish of this concrete floor evokes the warmth and richness of leather.How it was made: The color was achieved using a semitransparent concrete stain that comes in several colors. Why it works here: “We felt that the color we chose went well with the natural wood in the house,” says Curtis Gelotte, Principal at Gelotte Hommas Architecture. Concrete is also an economical finish in homes with radiant heat, like this one.Tip: Stained concrete floors will always have natural variations in color, because of the way concrete takes the stain. “You have to embrace its uncontrollability in a sense and go with the organic nature,” says Gelotte.Installed by Clark Boa Construction
