The longevity of concrete floors surpasses any other flooring options available. If the concrete floor has been professionally polished and regularly maintained, the floor could last up to or even beyond 100 years. Not only is that a remarkable lifespan, but think about the savings that can be passed on to multiple generations.
With all the treatment options available, concrete floors can be faux finished to withstand even the harshest outdoor conditions. So with the help of A Dash of Splash, the only limitations on your concrete floors is your imagination.

Here’s a quick look at some of the benefits to having concrete floors.
If you have an existing concrete slab in your living or working space, you can refrain from using any new materials by creating a unique faux finish right on the surface of your concrete floor. You can create an elegant look with concrete that fits even the most luxurious kitchen or living room spaces. After the floor is sanded, polished, and sealed, you’ll be amazed at how great it looks. Marianne can even help create a faux finish that compliments the furniture and rugs that will be in the space.
A plus for any busy family is the ease of care that comes with concrete floors. The only thing you’ll need is a weekly mopping with your typical soap and water. One additional expert tip is to consider adding a baseboard, if the room doesn’t already have one. The baseboard will help maintain a clean look by guarding your wall from any dirty mop marks that might come from the routine mopping.
A low cost is one of the best benefits to concrete floors. It could be as low as $2 per square foot to do a simple polish on a gray slab. Even with the simple polish, the unique color tones of the concrete and even the smallest cracks create a nice stone-like look. At that low cost, your budget could even afford some of the more stylish faux finishes like marble. That’s where A Dash of Splash can help you find the right concrete faux finish for your style and budget.
The affordability of faux finishing concrete floors gives you the ability to add other decorative effects—such as scoring in a range of grid patterns and lines—and various high-gloss seals to create a look of marble or even limestone.
The beauty of faux finishing is that you can take something as cold and industrial as concrete, and turn it into something luxurious, warm, and inviting. Marianne has been a leading the way with concrete faux finishes in Bloomington, Normal, Peoria, Champaign, and all of central IL. With her expertise, you can create that wonderfully unique look you’ve always wanted out of your concrete floors and walls, at a price you can afford.
