Pictured above is an amazing bar area under construction at a lakeside cabin here in Alberta. The flooring here is acid stained concrete!
Stained concrete combines the best of both worlds: beauty and functionality. Concrete staining imparts a luxurious richness that can’t be achieved by any other colouring medium while leaving behind permanent, flake-proof colour. What’s more, stain can even be applied to most existing concrete, making it an ideal solution for revitalizing lack-luster surfaces.
Although staining is not a new technique, these qualities have stirred up recent interest in the use of stained concrete for an ever-expanding array of exterior and interior applications, from walkways and patios to family room floors and kitchen countertops. But unlike many design trends, stained concrete is no fleeting fad. We predict it will remain in vogue for many years to come, and could even become as mainstream as stained wood. After all, why leave concrete (or wood) bare when you can so easily and economically enrich its appearance with a bit of creativity and a coat or two of stain?
