Forget everything you ever thought about concrete being drab and institutional. If what immediately come to mind are grey and rough warehouse floors, let’s fast forward to the present. The use of this highly versatile and attractive material in building projects of all kinds is the in thing, especially for high-end commercial projects.
Concrete can now be transformed into a fantastic looking and more durable than ever material, making it the perfect choice for almost any kind of commercial use. Here are just a few great ideas.
Commercial Contractor Can Make Almost Anything out of Concrete
- Countertops galore – Not just great for residential use in kitchens and bathrooms, concrete countertops also look tremendous in commercial establishments, from bars, restaurants and spas to haberdashers and hotels. Concrete countertops in the reception areas of medical and dental practices gleam with clean and simple elegance.
- Fantastic flooring – No longer restricted to porous, oil-stained garage floors, today’s concrete flooring is a wonder to behold. Available in every imaginable color or pattern and polished to perfection, you won’t believe how beautifully it enhances any area. Durable is particularly important in commercial settings, and concrete flooring beats carpeting and laminate hands-down when standing up to heavy foot traffic.
- Fabulous fountains – Indoors or out, nothing attracts people quite like a fountain. Whether in a restaurant or exclusive shopping plaza, for example, customers are drawn to the look and sound of water, cascading dramatically or burbling gently. Your custom concrete fountain doesn’t need to be enormous to be impressive, as long as it creates a unique and engaging atmosphere.
- Decorative meets duty, the winning concrete combination – Concrete can be used for endless decorative and practical purposes, such as bold backsplashes in a bustling restaurant kitchen, risers on a dramatic staircase to the second level of a boutique or from a bistro lounge to dining area, classy countertop-sink units in customer restrooms, or as part of a truly spectacular entranceway for any establishment. Concrete is completely customizable, not just in color and pattern, but also in form. For that added touch, you can even have your company logo imprinted at intervals into the concrete itself. (Doesn’t hurt for branding, either!)
