Faux marble finish will take any floor to the next level

Marble is a luxurious, clean and classy looking material, but it is very expensive. The most natural looking and durable marble-like option is to create the marble look on concrete. Your floors will have the appearance of highly polished marble.

There are a variety of methods than can be used on new and existing concrete floors to transform concrete into marble.

  1. Staining – concrete acid stains are ideal for creating natural-looking marbling effects because they react with the concrete surface to produce light and dark areas that stimulate the colour variations of real stone.
  2. Metallic Epoxies – metallic epoxy floor coatings are like liquid marble for concrete because of their pearlescent qualities and reflective pigments and they are highly versatile allowing you to achieve an endless array of decorative effects.
  3. Burnishing – Burnishing can mimic the highlights and lowlights of marble by producing natural-looking colour variations. It involves hand or machine trowelling the surface over and over again in a swirling motion until the desired pattern and degree of colour variation is achieved.
  4. Painting – Painting concrete floors to look like marble is similar to faux finishing of walls and offers more colour options than concrete staining. The floor is first painted with the desired base colour, and then one or more accent colours are applied by brush or sponge to create veining effects.

Gorgeous reflector floors can be created using Elite Crete Systems epoxy and reflector enhancer colouring system. Treating concrete with a chemical densifier and then grinding it with progressively finer grinding tools can create beautiful basement and garage floors.
