Decorative Concrete

Concrete is no longer a product only to be used beneath your feet. People have discovered that concrete can be used in ways more than one, as cosmetic and aesthetic upgrades to various structures, and as a result, decorative concrete is a term growing popular amongst designers and architects. Decorative concrete is all about adding beauty and appeal to the structure while still retaining its function as a part of the building.

Types of decorative concrete are obtained through various processes that are also given away by their respective names. They include stamped concrete, acid stains, coloured concrete, dyed concrete, polished concrete and more. Micro cement toppings are used to create a canvas for decorative treatments such as stain, dyes, textures and stencilled patterns, and acid staining is used to create earth toned colours on the concrete surface. Both can be used indoors and outdoors, and for homes and offices alike. While the micro cement provides unlimited design possibilities, the acid stains light up the ambiance and provide a protective layer to the floor. Bharat Floorings also has the Terra Natura™, a concrete that is patterned or embossed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile, wood, and various other patterns and textures. Being cost efficient, stamped concrete is commonly used for sidewalks, swimming pool decks, and interior flooring.


Indian Patent Stone or IPS flooring can be grey or coloured. When red, it is also referred as "red oxide flooring". This was used extensively in old houses being basic but beautiful flooring and providing good wearing properties. IPS can be coloured and is given either a wax coat or a sealer coat to help preserve the said colour and prevent stains. Bharat Floorings offers IPS in 30 colours, and with either a smooth or a rough finish. It has been used in many places including commercial and residential spaces. Many interior designers have opted for IPS for their own living spaces.

 

While decorative concrete is mostly used for floors, walkways and more, some like to think out of the box and use it to transform their space into a work of art.
