Over the past few years the boring solid color epoxy floors of yesterday have been replaced with new high performance epoxy materials, new trends, techniques and now new additives that are turning the epoxy floor industry on its head. This fast growing designer floor movement has taken off as the new floor of choice for residential and commercial clients alike and for good reason. These fabulous floors are not only beautiful, they are practical and durable, offering many advantages over traditional flooring options. Perhaps it's the ease of cleanup, or the anti-slip properties that have you thinking of making the move to epoxy but for most customers of Artistic Concrete Transformations of Toledo, its the "Knock your Socks Off" beauty of these top trending floors. So in this article I am going to showcase the top floor picks of 2018 starting with my personal favorite:
Metallic Marble Epoxy Floors
Metallic Marble Epoxy, For The Ultimate Man Cave! This designer technique does than simply add color. Unlike the opaque, uniform look of paint or colored coatings, this coating will give you rich, deep, colors and swirls that can mimic everything from polished marble to fluid like patterns and with a bit of creativity, you can use multiple decorative techniques, opening the door to endless possibilities for artistic expression. These are often poured with metallic or pearlescent pigments added giving you what I like to call the "bowling ball finish". These floors have shine that will have your guests reaching for their rain boots because with so much shine, the floors look like they are wet!
The Mica Flake Floor:
Mica Metallic Chips make epoxy flooring glisten with natural crystalline beauty. These unique flakes are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals, called Mica, which include: Muscovite, Phlogopite, Biotite, Clintonite and others. Chips are broadcast Into a colored epoxy and one or two coats of a clear topcoat are applied.
Concrete stain does more than simply add color. Unlike the opaque, uniform look of paint or colored coatings, stains soak into the concrete to accent its natural, organic characteristics. You’ll get rich, deep, variegated tones that can mimic everything from polished marble to tanned leather, to natural stone or even stained wood. With a bit of creativity, you can use stain in conjunction with other decorative techniques, opening the door to endless possibilities for artistic expression.
