Internal Residential Flooring Ideas
Your home is your sanctuary, and your floors are its foundation. That’s why it’s so important to select the right type of flooring for your home. You deserve floors that are beautiful, durable, comfortable, and easy to maintain. Who wouldn’t love that? Well, at My Floor, we have many magnificent floor coatings that can do all the above and more! Our polished concrete veneers, epoxy coatings, and more are perfect for indoor flooring. They can add elegance and sophistication to any room in your home. First, let’s look at why traditional flooring options fall short compared to what we offer!
Many downsides go along with any carpeting you may have. They include:
- High maintenance. It’s dreadful if you have a busy lifestyle. Expect to spend hours deep carpet cleaning as well as regular vacuuming.
- Allergies. Your carpet is like a magnet for mould, dust mites, pet dander, and more. If you’ve got respiratory or allergy problems, there are much better flooring options.
- Lifespan. A synthetically manufactured product like carpeting won’t last very long. It will only take a few years for rips and tears to start showing.
- Outdated. Carpeting has been on its way out for many years now. Hard-surfaced floors only continue to rise in popularity.
The main disadvantages of timber flooring include:
- Highly prone to scratching. Furniture, heavy objects, and pets can easily scratch hardwood floors. These are rough to look at and expensive to fix.
- Prone to water damage. As you can imagine, water and hardwood floors do not agree. If you don’t mop up any spilled water immediately, the quality of your floors will degrade.
- Installation is costly. Not only does it cost a lot to install, but maintenance rates are also through the roof!
- Some types are prone to termite attacks. The last thing that you want is a termite attack on your flooring!
- Cold surface. Tiles get very, very cold. As a result, they can be quite uncomfortable to walk on in the wintertime. Also, they aren’t doing your energy bill any favors by being so cold!
- Extremely hard and uncomfortable. Tiles can look nice, but it’s a rigid surface. You don’t want to install tiles if you have any joint problems.
- Challenging and expensive installation. There’s a lot of equipment that you need to install tiles, and it’s very time-consuming. There are cheaper and more comfortable options out there that look far better.
Now that you know why traditional floors fall short let’s look at our offerings at My Floor! We’re home to the most advanced and longest-lasting polished concrete on the market! Here are some options that are fantastic for internal residential flooring:
A mechanically polished concrete system, or MPC, is one of our top-selling options. It’s for indoor use only and works well in any room of the house. In particular, it’s trendy in kitchens, living rooms, and lounge areas. MPC is also extremely durable so that you won’t have any trouble with cracks or damage. Pets, furniture, and other heavy objects won’t stand a chance at making a dent!
MPC floors are also resistant to dirt, chemicals, stains, and allergens. That means that they’re effortless to keep clean. All you have to do is dry mop at the end of the day to get rid of any residue. To fully clean your floors, you occasionally need to mop with warm water or a neutral-PH cleaner. That’s all you have to do to keep your floors looking pristine!
You also have full control over the amount of gloss and aggregate exposure. You can choose:
- Gloss finish
- Matte gloss: Little to no shine
- Semi-gloss: A medium amount of reflectiveness
- High-gloss: An extraordinarily reflective and gleaming finish
- Aggregate exposure
- Nil: No stone exposure
- Medium: Some aggregates are showing in a few areas
- Full exposure: The entire surface shows visible aggregate
Each option has its unique feel and style to appreciate. Be sure to take your time consulting with our Site Manager to find the absolute best option for you!
Grind and seal concrete systems are another fantastic choice for interior floors. They differ slightly from MPC even though they achieve a similar look. With MPC, the concrete gets ground until it shines. For grind and seal, we apply a topical coating after grinding back the concrete. You’re still able to select your gloss level and aggregate exposure as well.
An advantage grind and seal systems have over MPC are their ability to be slip-resistant. You see, we can add a non-slip additive to the coating on your concrete. That’s not possible with MPC floors, which is why they’re for indoors only. With grind and seal, you can flawlessly merge indoor and outdoor areas with the same flooring!
A burnished polished concrete look is rustic and cozy. It’s great for basements, garages, and connecting areas of your home. Unlike grind and seal and MPC, only nil aggregate exposure is available. It’s a quaint look that will add resistance and stain protection to your basement or garage.
These are unique in that they’re only 10 mm to 15 mm thick. As a result, you can easily install them over an existing surface with little to no trouble. Also, veneers are fantastic if the slab you have isn’t suited for polishing. Not only that, but it saves you the time and expense of having to engineer a slab from scratch. With a polished concrete veneer flooring, you can fully control the gloss level and aggregate exposure! Veneers are great for any room in the house, and they work incredibly well on second story floors.
If you’re on a strict budget but still want a rustic burnished look for your home, a feather finish is perfect. It’s a simple cement compound that we apply over existing surfaces. The result is artsy, cozy, and reflective. It will also protect against mould and mildew! Feather finish concrete is also wildly popular on countertops.
A metallic epoxy coating is highly decorative! Due to the nature of the coating, many mesmerizing patterns can form on the surface. Our team at My Floor can fully control these patterns. We can achieve dazzling swirls, clouds, ripples, and more! There are also dozens of colour combinations available. A metallic epoxy coating is great for bedrooms, living rooms, and more. It’s the option to choose if you’re looking for a highly decorative, artsy floor!
Do you want to reinforce your garage floor? Are you sick and tired of stains and cracks in your concrete garage floor? Then it’s time to install an epoxy or epoxy flake coating! They will make your garage floor ten times as durable. You’ll also enjoy full protection from stains, cracks, and other contaminants. An epoxy flake floor is also a highly decorative option, and it’s perfect for garages. You’ll still achieve all the same benefits as a regular epoxy coating as well!
