Residential Polished Concrete
Polished concrete can add the perfect touch to any home, with the versatility to complement almost any residential interior design style. At Designer Floors, we specialise in polishing and grinding services for new and existing concrete floors in the Perth metro area. Using the latest technology and techniques, our friendly and professional team can breathe new life into your home by getting your polished concrete floors to look their absolute best.
GET THE POLISHED CONCRETE LOOK
While polished concrete floors are currently on trend, the minimalist, neutral aesthetic can add a timeless sense of style to any home. From edgy, industrial looks through to boho-chic and modern Scandinavian interior design, you can pair your concrete flooring with any colours, textures and furnishings your heart desires. No matter whether you choose to renovate or sell your home in the future, your concrete floors will continue to be an attractive feature with broad appeal.
FLOORING THAT WILL LAST
Once you’ve installed polished concrete in your home, your investment will last you many years if you keep your floors in good condition. Strong and durable with a scratch resistant surface, polished concrete is designed to stand up to long-term wear and tear, with the ability to withstand heavy furniture, ongoing foot tread, exposure to direct sunlight and much more.
LOW MAINTENANCE SOLUTION
When compared to other residential flooring types,
polished concrete floors require very little maintenance. Tiles need regrouting, carpets must be steam cleaned and hardwood floors have to be sanded and polished on a regular basis. With quality concrete floors in your home, all you’ll have to do is clean the surface with a dry mop to wipe away dirt and debris, followed by a warm mop with a pH neutral cleaner.
If members of your family suffer from allergies, carpets and timber flooring can exacerbate health issues by retaining dirt, mould, bacteria and other nasties. As concrete flooring is hypoallergenic, it does not attract any allergens that may trigger asthma and other respiratory issues.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY CHOICE
Given the thermal properties of polished concrete, it can be used to improve the heating and cooling abilities of your home, reducing your energy consumption and electricity bills. There is also minimal waste involved in the manufacturing and installation process of concrete floors. What’s more, the polishing and grinding process does not involve any harsh chemicals or pollutants that may cause harm to you and your family.
ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOME
Installing polished concrete flooring is one way to potentially increase the value of your residential property. As the flooring style comes with such a wide range of benefits, it is fast becoming a preferred choice over alternative options. With minimal maintenance required throughout its lifetime, concrete flooring is also a cost-effective, long-term solution suitable for any home.
POLISHED CONCRETE & CONCRETE GRINDING
For new concrete floors, we offer numerous design styles or levels of aggregate exposure to help you achieve your desired look. Depending on whether your floors are indoors or outdoors, and how much wear and tear they are likely to experience, our team can provide different finishes as appropriate. If preferred, we can also customise the stone exposure to your liking if the concrete is suitable. We are also experts in bringing old or poorly installed concrete floors back to life, with the ability to grind the surface and restore your flooring to its former glory.

Will polished concrete floors make my house cold?
Polished Concrete is no colder than tiles and many testimonials claim that due to polished concrete being recognised as a sustainable and ‘green’ building product the thermal mass naturally draws its temperature from the ground rather than the outside so it tends to be warmer than tiles in winter and cooler than tiles in summer. We discuss this and other benefits in an article “Myth Busters: Polished Concrete Flooring” and “Polished Concrete – 6 Reasons You Need It”.
Can I have Polished Concrete in wet areas?
Yes, but usually only if those wet areas eg bathroom, laundry, toilet have been laid for polished concrete as most standard houses have screeds instead of concrete.
How do I care for and maintain my polished concrete floors?
Polished Concrete is low maintenance. All is that is required is sweeping with a dry micro-fibre dust mop to remove dust plus a mop with warm water and a ph neutral all-purpose cleaner. Also to prevent staining clean spills immediately after they occur, especially if they are acidic liquids, such as orange juice, or penetrating liquids, such as oil or wine.
Is there much mess during or after the polished concrete process?
No, we have high-grade dust extractors so there is only minimal dust and we clean the area after the process.
