Yes, concrete is a reliable, sturdy foundation. Yes, concrete is long-lasting and cost-effective. No, concrete does not have to be a flat, dull slab. Whether your concrete is on a patio, in a warehouse, or a grand foyer, there are multiple ways to beautify your flooring. Decorative concrete uses concrete as more than a construction medium. It enhances flooring while still allowing it to function as a supportive building structure. Here are six decorative concrete ideas from Creative Maintenance Solutions.

Decorative concrete is the use of concrete as not simply a utilitarian medium for construction but as an aesthetic enhancement to a structure, while still serving its function as an integral part of the building itself such as floors, walls, driveways, and patios.


Polished concrete involves the use of machines to grind down the surface of the concrete to achieve the desired sheen and sleekness. The smooth, polished concrete surface creates a reflective surface that attracts a wide array of design options such as radial lines, patterns, scoring, and coloring. The high reflectivity presents a sharp, professional image.

2. DYE

When you crave a mottled appearance, concrete dyes are the perfect solution. These coloring agents create rich, vibrant hues. The immense variety of dye colors makes it possible to achieve any color combination and pattern you desire.


Exposed aggregate concrete is an easy way to achieve a unique aesthetic. The process involves removing the top surface layer of concrete to expose the aggregate beneath. The irregular size rocks, pebbles, gravel, and stone underneath furnish a one-of-a-kind character. Coloring exposed aggregate highlights the natural richness below.


Topical stains produce warm, earthy colors on interior concrete floors. Stains enhance the natural color of concrete and add a variegated finish. While color options are limited to browns, reds, blues, and greens, colors can be mixed and layered to multiply your design options.


Epoxy floor coatings such as decorative quartz, vinyl flake, self-leveling, and epoxy mortar coatings offer dramatic looks. From metallic shine to color-matching, matte to a glossy finish, and speckled to solid designs, floor coatings provide unlimited design options.
