Acid Stained Basement Floors – Basement Floor Alternatives

Stained basement floors are all the rage in recent years to Coloradans. For nearly a decade, traditional carpeting was the typical choice for flooring in a basement. However, with the flooding and introduction of stained basement floors and advancements in technology, it has really caught on to consumer’s attention due to their low maintenance and substantial, bold appearance. Turning a typical basement floor plan into a conversational piece, these high-end stained floors are easily maintainable and require very little clean up, and even repair work, as they are impervious to water or water damage.

In acid stained floors, the acid reacts directly with the available lime in the surface of the concrete and even the finishing flaws and imperfections to create an unimaginable result that is extremely unique and beautiful! The acid stains are available in an array of colors to provide the perfect addition and finish to your home or business.

Depending on your choice of color for a stained floor, there is a wide array of colors that are not only very vivid and audacious but also create a home-like vibe in the room making it welcoming to anyone. Because of the influence the floor stain has on any room, it is sure to glow iridescently to just about any shade of light. What is great about the design of stained floors and the lighting of the room is that it can give the floor a rippled look effect, almost like an illusion creating curiosity and imagination.
