I have concrete floors throughout my house. My plan was to install wood and tile flooring. I have now changed my mind, I love the ease of the concrete. My main concern was cold floors in the winter but they heat up with the rest of the space and I walk barefoot in the winter. Look into professionals that do commercial concrete flooring. If you look at many mall store floors, they are concrete. They are buffed and polyurethaned. You can still stain them too. So many options, then throw down an area rug here and there to absorb sound. People admire and some are jealous of my concrete. Good luck and enjoy!

The cheapest option (and most natural look), would be to use the existing concrete and just seal/wax it. We'll attach some images of our previous jobs, and show you what a concrete floor can look like with different finishes.

With concrete we embrace and look forward to variations, irregularities, and the patina that develops with adding to the 'beauty marks' on your floor.
