What Houzz contributors are saying:
Concrete floors and countertops. Interior concrete slabs have a propensity to crack just as exterior slabs do, and this is often listed as a disadvantage of exposed interior concrete surfaces. The good news is, interior floors are typically large and structurally designed, with more substantial reinforcement than an exterior patio. Also, for concrete surfaces poured over an existing slab, the interior climate is often manageable, allowing installers to create perfect installation conditions. I’m sorry to say, even with these advantages, interior concrete still cracks.
Here are just some of the benefits of concrete floors.Sustainability. Concrete floors are a sustainable option if you use an existing concrete slab, avoiding the consumption of new materials. And they need not be relegated to basements or garages. Once the concrete is sanded down and polished or sealed, it looks perfectly refined in a traditional kitchen or living room, especially when layered with Oriental rugs and pretty furnishings and fixtures.
Virtually indestructible polished concrete is the flooring of choice for the well-trafficked entryway.
