Polished Concrete For The Home

Did you ever think of using polished concrete in your house? The thought never crossed my mind. Now that I saw this site called forrestconcrete.com, it seems like a good idea to use it for the home. When a person says polished concrete, what comes to my mind is the color grey, that it is unfinished and unsightly. I also wouldn't think that it could be used in a residential setting. I think I am too far out of the loop of interior design trends. For our kitchen countertop, our contractor used 24" x 24" granite tiles six years ago. Now, the surfaces have cracks here and there, the sides that frame the bottom cabinets are almost gone because they fell off. It's sad-looking, actually. I might consider the option of having polished concrete, especially if our countertop could look something like this:

It's nice, right? It looks like a granite countertop, and looks quite seamless. I didn't know polished concrete could take on that kind of look. I think I'll suggest this to my husband.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if my dream house looks like this? Stamped concrete was used on the driveway. I'd really love to have lawns. The polished concrete could also used for the countertop of my dream Master bathroom as I have mentioned in my previous post about visiting a new home.

Forrestconcrete.com's motto holds very true:

"The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low bid is forgotten"
Do you agree?
