2. Silver Polished Concrete Flooring
The silver polished concrete process offers a floor that strikes a perfect balance between refinement and understated elegance. It begins with a deep grind, followed by the sequential use of progressively smaller diamond disks to expose the aggregates beneath. This unique technique allows for an immensely durable matte finish that exudes a modern aesthetic.
While the process grinds deep into the concrete, it stops short of the polishing process, instead leaving the aggregate exposed. The result is a stunning floor with a sophisticated matte surface, making it an excellent choice for those seeking a subdued yet exquisite flooring solution.
3. Gold Polished Concrete Flooring
The gold finish, also often referred to as the salt and pepper finish, offers a touch of sophistication and durability that’s highly sought after in both residential and commercial settings. In this process, the concrete surface is delicately ground, revealing the subtle beauty of the smallest aggregates within the concrete mix.
While it’s frequently chosen for new residential construction, the versatility of gold polished concrete shines in renovations where bronze polished concrete finish isn’t an option. This finish is extremely durable, thanks to the densifiers that are applied during the process to strengthen the surface. The result is a timeless, enduring, and exquisite floor finish that exudes elegance.
4. Platinum Polished Concrete Flooring
The platinum concrete finish epitomises luxury and sophistication, making it a popular choice for high-end residential projects. This technique involves extensive grinding, consistently revealing the largest aggregate in the concrete mix, resulting in a striking terrazzo-like appearance.
There are multiple advantages to this finish: its glossy finish is stunning, it offers unparalleled durability, and provides flexibility to accommodate high-gloss polishing. The platinum, or exposed aggregate polished concrete finish, remains a top choice for those seeking the pinnacle of elegance and longevity in their flooring solution.
