Polished Concrete Floors are an extremely practical flooring choice. Not convinced? Continue reading about the many features that qualify concrete flooring as the ideal home flooring option.

 

Low Cost

Polished concrete is renowned for being an affordable flooring option for Perth families. This trendy and up and coming look doesn’t come with a massive price tag, we busted that myth in our last blog! Our Hiperguard Acrylic Polished Concrete option is designed to give the luxurious look of premium polished concrete at a lower cost.

 

It is always best to plan ahead, so if you think you want to have concrete flooring communicate this to your home builder. This is to allow time for the floor preparation process as well as reduce any time inefficiencies, for example asking for polished concrete floors after the skirting and cabinets have been installed can result in added costs.

 

Durable

Possibly the best reason to have polished concrete floors would be the durable, hardwearing and long-lasting qualities. The practical features that come with this hard flooring option are incomparable. Designer Floors are Perth’s Husqvarna Certified Contractors, the Husqvarna Hiperfloor machine enhances the beauty, strength and resistance of the concrete floors. Making it the ideal flooring option for your home.

 

Low Maintenance

Say goodbye to the prospect of cleaning hard wood floors and say hello to the easy alternative, with bucket loads of more benefits. Their seamless surface means no grout cleaning and replacing! This doesn’t mean that once concrete floors are installed that you can leave them for six months and wipe them over, they’ll still need to be maintained. However, they are ten times easier. All that’s required is a quick sweep with a micro-fibre dust mop to get rid of the dust. For more information regarding the maintenance head over to our frequently asked questions.

 

Value Adding

Being a practical business we are always planning for the future. Like any new home, when you’re making design changes there is often the question “will this increase the value of my home if I were to sell it.” This is a common question with concrete floors, people are nervous that the drastic change will affect the value of their home.

 

Polished Concrete floors set homes apart from one another. The eye-catching feature is something completely different from the home next door and adds a completely different feel to any home. Our value adding concrete floors are the up and coming flooring trends in and around Perth, and rightfully so!

Environmentally Friendly

At Designer Floors, our polishing process does not involve any Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s). This means that even through the installation phase the concrete floors cause very little environmental stress or waste.
