Coloured Concrete for Someone Special
Coloured concrete makes for great construction material. The reason why many people shy away from coloured concrete is that it is often slightly more expensive than standard concrete.
If you are thinking about getting coloured concrete, you will agree that the slightly higher cost is well justified considering the impact of adding a dash of colour to residential concrete surfaces. If you have to choose between where to install coloured concrete around the house and where not to, here are a few suggestions based on who is likely to appreciate the extra dash of colour more.
For Your Better Half
Concrete kitchen countertops are a favourite choice for many homeowners owing to various reasons ranging from their ease of cleaning to their durability.
Gone are the days when the norm was to have dull, plain-coloured kitchen areas. You could choose to impress your spouse by suggesting their favourite colour for the kitchen countertops. If you are a parent, remember that you will probably be spending more time in the kitchen than anyone else. So why not have it in your favourite colour?
One functional advantage of concrete kitchen countertops is that they are made of a material that has a superior heat resistance and whose flammability is low. These are the ideal characteristics that a building material used in kitchen areas should have.
For Your Children
Playing with colour is always a welcome idea for children of all ages. Even adults like to play with colour. They do it every day with the clothes they wear. If you cannot afford to have coloured concrete in all bedrooms, consider giving their bedrooms the priority. For these young ones, having their favourite colours around their rooms is quite a big deal. Such aspects are what great childhood memories are made of.
Your coloured concrete would be best installed in the bathroom if you are primarily focusing on your aesthetic needs rather than those of anyone else.
Your bathroom is probably the most private part of your home in terms of the number of people who get access to it. This would be a great place to have coloured concrete flooring because there is minimal foot traffic and because it is a relatively smaller area of the house, which should make for a less expensive installation exercise.
