5 design ideas for concrete floors

Designer concrete flooring has a sleek, industrial vibe and great practicality. It's an extremely popular choice throughout the home, especially in modern and minimalist settings.

Interior designers love the seamless look of concrete, and homeowners appreciate its strength and durability in high traffic areas like kitchens and entertainment zones. When it comes to colour and texture, the options are endless.

Whether you want the natural stone look for less or a bold, practical colour, here are our top 5 design ideas to help you choose the right concrete flooring.

1. Single shade simplicity

Go for a bright hue in the rumpus room, or choose a practical shade for the garage. Our solid colour waterbased epoxy system is the most economical way to give your concrete a protective coating with an attractive finish.

2. Raw concrete floors

If you're a fan of raw concrete, you can have it ground back before applying Dulux Avista Polyurethane Flooring Sealer for a clear, high gloss finish that heroes the natural concrete.

3. Stippled stone

You’ll be amazed by the complexity and depth that can be achieved with a stippled stone effect. You choose a base colour, then one or two other colours which are applied by a professional applicator with a hopper gun to produce the stippled look. Dulux Avista’s 2 Pack Urethane is then applied as a protective top coat and to give that optional high gloss finish.

4. The natural stone look for less

The Dulux Avista Flake Flooring System uses a blend of small polymer flakes applied over a base colour to create stunning effects. Our Decorative Flakes can be used to imitate the look of engineered or composite stone, while our premium Natural Stone Look Flakes mimic the real thing. Order one of our designer blends or choose your own colours and flake sizes in a custom blend.

5. Terrazzo on a budget

To emulate the marble and granite chips in terrazzo flooring, a partial application of decorative flakes can cleverly be used to recreate the look for a fraction of the price. Simply select your base colour and flakes of choice.
