Stamped concrete has found its way into many different areas of the home. Innovations in this popular technique have inspired homeowners and contractors to find new uses for the medium indoors. ConcreteNetwork.com, the online leader for concrete information, has released a list of the four most popular uses for concrete stamps in the home.
While consumers are most often used to seeing stamped concrete outside on patios, walkways, driveways, and even public spaces, more and more consumers are discovering the benefits of installing a stamped concrete surface indoors too. Here are four of the most popular interior stamped applications:
1. Entrances, kitchens, family rooms and basements
2. Vertical applications on walls and fireplaces
3. Concrete countertops, bartops and bathroom vanities
4. Existing interior concrete floors using a stampable overlay
Stamped concrete offers the durability of traditional concrete, with the added versatility that decorative concrete applications have to offer. The ability of concrete stamps to produce close replicas of brick, natural stone and even wood makes this technique a viable option for consumers wanting to update their interior spaces this summer.
