Why Choose Polished Concrete Office Flooring?
Office space has undergone radical changes over the past two decades. Flexible environments that can accommodate a range of activities are now the order of the day. So, it’s goodbye to traditional furnishings, tired pot plants and shabby carpets. In their place are adaptable workspaces, easy-to-clean surfaces, and polished concrete flooring.
Why choose polished concrete office flooring? It was made for the 21st century workplace; it’s good-looking, low-maintenance, and wonderfully durable. Best of all, it can transform a dreary office into a modern workspace without costing a fortune! DirectStone provides bespoke polished concrete for offices, business hubs, atriums, and meeting rooms.
What Makes Polished Concrete an Affordable Choice?
Most of the concrete slabs that the DirectStone team polish are installed as part of the construction process, or they exist already, beneath layers of carpet or tiles. Our job is to turn this inexpensive industrial material into a shimmering, glossy floor which will lift your office aesthetic into the 21st century.
What Kind of Polished Concrete For Your Office?
There are numerous types of polished concrete for your office floor, dependent on the kind of space, its function, and the level of WoW factor you require. For customer-facing areas such as atriums, or board rooms we would recommend a Platinum high gloss, non-slip polish which is a joy to walk on. If you’re looking for a floor that can withstand a heavy daily footfall, our Gold finish is shiny, non-slip and provides excellent resistance to scuffs, and scratches.
What are the Benefits?
However good polished concrete flooring looks in your office, the DirectStone team knows that it has to earn its place there! Here are the 4 benefits that we think makes commercial polished concrete stand out from the other flooring options:
- Good for Allergies. Carpet tiles are a haven for dust mites, with the potential to clog up noses, create sneezing fits, and restrict breathing. By contrast, polished concrete flooring, if maintained properly, is a great contributor to clean, allergen-free air.
- Light Enhancement. The shimmer of polished concrete reflects the existing natural light. This enhances the light quality within the space, improves employee wellbeing, and can also have an impact on your electricity bills.
- Sustainable Flooring. Your polished concrete flooring will last for decades, making it a highly sustainable choice. A concrete floor is normally in situ when we polish it, so no new materials are added in order to create a stunning flooring effect.
- Light Maintenance. All that’s required to maintain your concrete flooring regular sweeping to keep it dust free, followed by mopping with a light detergent. There’s no need for waxing or specialist treatments.
