Concrete floors have come a long way from the dull, grey surfaces they were once known for. However, even with the numerous coloring options available, website search trends on ConcreteNetwork.com reveal the most popular concrete flooring color choice among consumers—brown. New information now available explains reasons for this phenomenon and offers photos of beautiful floors featuring rich brown hues.
Brown may be a surprising choice, especially with the array of coloring options now available for concrete floors, from bold reds and yellows to vibrant blues and greens. Based on popularity ranking statistics collected from The Concrete Network's photo gallery, concrete floors colored in warm, natural hues were the most often viewed images.
The Concrete Network gives three insights into why this may be the case:
1. The use of warm, earth-tones on concrete floors enhances concrete’s natural and organic qualities, creating an inviting ambiance in any room.
2. Brown floors have the ability to hide dirt, making dust, lint and other debris look less apparent to the naked eye.
3. Neutral, muted floor colors, like brown, allow consumers to be more extravagant in their decorating choices. Brown floors can complement many interior decorating styles.
