Can polished concrete be colored?
It’s a common misconception that polished concrete needs to be high-gloss gray. The truth is polished concrete is easy to customize with a variety of colors, effects, and patterns. We can stain new or existing concrete to deliver a custom polished concrete floor you’ll fall in love with. Integral color is a good option for new concrete flooring but we can still color existing concrete floors with dyes and/or stains.
Water-based concrete stains are a good choice for achieving solid, vibrant colors. Acid-based stains create a mottled effect with a variety of earth hues. Concrete dyes, however, produce the most intense colors. Concrete dye penetrates the concrete because it has a smaller particle size than stains. Concrete stains are different because they react chemically with the concrete. We can use dyes to create a huge range of effects like marbled, translucent, and monotone floors. Stains are a good choice for creating custom patterns when combined with saw cutting.
