3 Ways To Give Concrete An Attractive Look Using Acid Stain Finishing Techniques

If you have a concrete driveway, floors in the basement, patio or garage, you may want to give them a look that is more attractive than the plain unfinished grey you may have now. If you want an attractive concrete finish, this is something that can be done with acid staining techniques. Here are some of the options that you may want to consider for an attractive look for your concrete with acid staining:

1. Giving Your Concrete A Solid Rock Finish With Acid Staining

If you want to have the look of solid rock, such as marble or granite, acid staining can be a great method to create this look. You can choose from a variety of different colors to create a marbled look in concrete. The acid stain can be used for flooring, as well as other concrete features. For example, if you want to make marble stepping stones in your garden, you can use ready-mix and forms to make the stones and finish them with an acid stain or even use it to make concrete counters.

2. An Affordable Custom Tile Alternative With Acid Stained Concrete Floors

An affordable alternative to custom tile work can be acid staining. Instead of spending time and money on tile, acid stain can give you a unique custom look quickly. This can also give you the option to add personalized details to the finish. You can use the acid stain and stencils to give rooms centerpieces, such as adding a family crest or other design to the entrance or foyer of your home. It can also be used to create boarders and other interesting designs.

3. Acid Stained Concrete For The Look Of Wood Without The Maintenance And Troubles

Acid stain can also be a solution for a faux wood finish. If you like wood floors and want them all throughout your home, there may be some areas where real wood can be a problem, such as in bathrooms or in a basement. Instead of real wood, consider using acid staining to give the concrete the look of real wood, this can even be done to match other wood materials in your home.

These are some of the options that you may want to consider to give your floors a decorative new look with acid staining. Contact a concrete supply service like R Pepin & Sons Inc to get help with stains, ready-mix and supplies to change the look of your plain grey concrete.
