Looking for Polished Concrete Floors in Aylesbury
For anyone with an interest in history, Aylesbury is a feast for the eyes. Tudor, Jacobean and Georgian houses can be found throughout the town centre, bearing witness to its importance as a trading centre. Most striking, though, is the sheer elegance of the buildings that adorn the ancient Market Square. This is a prosperous town, with an eye for the graceful and stylish in architecture.
DirectStone Provides Polished Concrete Floors in Aylesbury
The people of Aylesbury obviously have a good eye when it comes to design, and maybe that’s why we’re working a good deal in the town at the moment! The trend for polished concrete flooring began a while back when designers started using them for contemporary interiors. They made an immediate splash because few had associated the understated elegance of the polished flooring with industrial concrete.
The Benefits of Polished Concrete Flooring
It’s the beautiful simplicity of a polished concrete floor that wins many of our clients over. Often we’re able to use material that’s already available in the structure to create a shimmering polished floor. The look and simplicity aren’t the only benefits, though:
- Durability – concrete is an industrial material that was created to withstand heavy traffic in factories. It provides an extremely durable flooring for your home, or workspace, therefore.
- Ease of Maintenance – Your polished flooring will need resealing every 2-3 years to protect it from staining. That aside, all it needs is brushing and mopping regularly with a mild, soap-based cleaning product.
- Long-Lasting – Once installed you have a floor for life. Should you need a change, your floor can be ground back to reveal the aggregate patterning, or polished to a different finish. This is a supremely versatile flooring finish.
How is Concrete Polished to Produce Elegant Flooring?
The DirectStone flooring specialists use HTC Superfloor™ grinding machines and diamond tools to polish concrete floors.
We offer a range of finishes for your flooring:
Bronze – a durable finish that polishes the surface paste to a high sheen
Silver – the surface paste is ground back to reveal the aggregate texture beneath
Gold – a highly-polished finish for a durable and resilient flooring
Platinum – this high gloss finish captures and refracts natural light
We’ll always assess your flooring prior to the polish, however, and if we think an alternative finish would be preferable, we’ll let you know. For example, the bronze finish requires an extremely level floor to create. We’ll always suggest an alternative if your first choice isn’t possible.

In its new guise, polished concrete has found its way out of the factory, and into homes, heritage conversions, office atriums, and public buildings. The versatility of the material, and its inherent durability, makes it an obvious choice for buildings with a heavy footfall. The sophistication of the finish, though, is making it a top choice for domestic dining rooms, kitchens, and bathrooms.
