Design Your Perfect Floor
Looking for a modern look for your home or apartment?
Existing floors will have their own unique aggregate mix that will produce its unique pattern however, there are sometimes options to customise the surface further. The use of stains and dyes can change the colour from the standard grey mix. Different mix of aggregates will also produce a mix of coulourful patterns and flecks throughout the surface. Furthermore, scoring the surface or creating radial lines before finishing the floor can provide an artistic look
Contrasting your floor with the other features in your home can produce stunning results. Contrasting light polished concrete flooring with dask walls can produce a stunning look and feel while balancing the industrial feel of concrete with warmer materials like wood or soft rugs can also produce a beautiful space.
Some people like the look of the minimalistic expance of shiny concrete whereas others prefer to break it up with furniture elements. Either way will produce great looking polished concrete for Designer Floors. Other options include using it for outdoor areas like pool surrounds. Companies in Perth are using polished concrete, exposed aggregate to create stunningly sleek pool and alfresco areas that really make your outdoor area stand out.

Concrete panels are a commonly used building material for commercial building facades. Not only are they quick and efficient to install, but they produce a very aesthetic finish to the building. Pre-polished concrete panels can be lifted into place with cranes and typically fixed in place by riggers and scaffolders. Due to the sheer size of these concrete panels the riggers are trained to work at height and are required to attend a working at heights course and at all times wear fall prevention equipment - see image below.
Precast panels are usually formed up on existing concrete floor slabs.
