Lose Edge to Gain Edge: Why Seamless Floors Could Work for Your Home

For many years, concrete wasn't seen as a very nice material. It was associated in many people's minds with multi-storey car parks and bland apartment blogs. However, in recent years, concrete has undergone something of a revival. This is thanks to people like me, people who can see what a beautiful and useful material concrete is. I designed my dream home using a poured concrete shell and it was a massive success. I called in the best contractors I could find and they really offered all the help and advice I could ask for. I am so please with my new concrete home.

Lose Edge to Gain Edge: Why Seamless Floors Could Work for Your Home

Your home's flooring is one of the most important surfaces in your home. While much attention is paid to the walls, the choices you make for your flooring have perhaps even more influence over the look, feel and functionality of your space. As such, if you're thinking of having a decor overhaul, you may wish to consider starting with your floors. If you do, choosing seamless floors may be a great option for you. Here's why.


Of course, one of the most obvious advantages of seamless flooring is that it makes any space much more accessible — both to wheelchair users and to those who are especially prone to trips, stumbles and falls. Having one edgeless floor installed ensures that it's easy for people to move between rooms in your home. Choosing a material such as concrete also means that you can ensure the surface is smooth and easy to travel across; it doesn't add friction as carpeting might.


Having one uninterrupted idea flow through an entire floor of your house can really help to unite the aesthetic of your home. By using one flooring style to anchor your colour scheme, you can then use each room to interpret that idea differently. Perhaps in your kitchen, you'll respond to the neutral seamless floor with a bright accent colour; perhaps in your sitting room, you'll pair it with neutral creams of different textures and patterns. It's up to you — and so too is the style of the floor itself. Especially with something like concrete, there are countless options for you in terms of finish and colour. A glaze can be applied over a texture to create a nice smooth surface with an interesting look — or a marble effect can be produced with a little polish.


One of the most exciting things about concrete as a flooring option is that it's so affordable. In comparison to wooden boards, marbles or luxury carpets, it's extremely cost-effective — and it looks equally neat and modern. In fact, it's also much easier to maintain than all three of those options, so you don't just reduce the initial purchase price. You reduce repair and maintenance costs, too. This affordability only increases with seamless flooring, as you can use the same technique to cover a wide surface — no different costs required.

With all these things considered, option for seamless concrete flooring — either inside or outside your home — simply makes sense. Contact a local specialist to see what options there are for your home today.
