As a homeowner and a parent, we are always looking for ways to add value to our homes while also installing things that are useful and practical. There is no point in installing something in your home just because it looks good, it needs to provide a purpose. With kids running around everywhere and maybe a family pet or two, a large amount of dirt and grime gets carried into our homes on our kid’s and pet’s feet. Therefore, we need a floor covering that can handle all of this and a floor covering that is fairly easy to take care of.
First, it was carpet, then linoleum, and next came tiles, but they all fall short of what we really need in a busy household. Thankfully, there is something new on the market that Australian homeowners are finding out about and it is polished concrete. You can get polished concrete in Perth at specialised dealers and it’s a lot cheaper than you may think. If you have been pondering over the notion that you might install this fantastic floor covering, then let me try to help make up your mind for you.
- In a home where family members are coming and going all day and parents are trying to hold down their job while taking care of the kids, it is important to have a floor covering that is easy to take care of and polished concrete ticks that box. Because it is a polished surface, it doesn’t hold on to dust, dirt and allergens that are going to make your kids sick and it can be cleaned easily with a clean mop and some clean water. A quick once over and it’s shiny again.
- It is massively cost effective because this floor covering will last a lifetime if you take proper care of it. Unlike carpets or tiles, you don’t have to rip it up every ten years or so and replace it. Over the average lifetime in a home, you may have to change your carpet 4 to 5 times and that is money wasted. With polished concrete, after the initial investment, you get to spend that money saved on something else.
- A polished concrete floor brings a modern look into a home, and various colours can be added to make sure that it blends in with the rest of your home. It also adds more light to your home due to its reflective properties.
Polished concrete is the perfect solution for any home floor covering as it is long lasting, durable and easy to maintain. It’s just what you need in your very busy lifestyle, and any help in that department is very much appreciated.
