We live in the UK and I’m desperate to get some concrete flooring in our new home/project, but at the moment we can’t afford the pricetag. Perhaps your way of achieving the look is the answer!

How do you think it would hold up in a bathroom? Perhaps I’d need to seal it to make it withstand water spilling on it?

Any advice would be great. Thanks.

I am considering putting it in our guest bathroom. Thanks!

Did you try it? How did it work? I have a split level home so my kitchen is over my basement so I don’t want heavy concrete..that is why I’m so interested in this process.

Russell Thu, 26 Mar 2015 11:46:31 +0000 http://www.designmom.com/?p=45149#comment-6559009 I am planning to redo my concrete slabs kitchen flooring, but how can this possible by myself. I don’t have any idea about the maintenance things. Kitchen is most tough one to maintain. This is the place where staining sauces, juices, and condiments can splatter and spill in every direction and naturally ending up down on the flooring. So I am considering a professional polishing service from Floortex in Canada. I looking forward to get a more glossy and finished look on those concrete slabs.

I am seriously considering ripping up the carpet in my girls’ room and doing this. The floor beneath the carpet is already concrete so I’d probably just have to remove the glue, sand it a bit, stain it hen put a clear coat on. It just seems so much easier to maintain and cheaper than any other surface!
If you did it in your son’s room please show pictures and let me know how it turned out!

Thanks!

I will be going over old hardwood flooring. I know that going over hardwood is not common. Most post are on installing hardwood over concrete not the other way. I love the look of concrete floors but can not install them due to weight and the height increase.How has it held up? I will take your advice and lay burlap down first to avoid cracking as much as possible. Will I need to follow the standard rule for expansion joints for concrete?

I’ve had it for a couple of months now, and it seems to be wearing beautifully. The guy at the place where I bought the Ardex looked at me like I was crazy when I told him what I was doing. Little did he know! Thank you so much for the tutorial :)

I would be very nervous to try this method in a bathroom that is used daily. I would definitely think using a water proof barrier was necessary.

I see other tutorials use several steps and water proof barriers such as felt paper, metal lath, crushed stone, sand, 6 mil sheet plastic for vapor barrier, insulation board etc.

Yours seems WAY more simple! Do you think for a half bath on the main floor these other steps should be taken? It is used daily by our family and guests when they are here.

Thank you!
