8 Popular Concrete Finish Options

1. Broom finish - A broom is dragged across the concrete to create a rough, anti-slip surface.

2. Stamped designs - Concrete can be made to look like stone, tile, wood, brick, or other materials. Often combined with a pigment or stain.

3. Salt finish - Often used for pool decks. The salt is added on top and then washed off, creating a porous quality.

4. Exposed aggregate finish - Concrete can be mixed with decorative stone materials such as quartz, granite, or even seashells. The top layer of concrete is washed away to reveal a more natural, uneven surface.

5. Pigments and stains - Used for coloring concrete.

6. Metallic epoxy coating - Often used in showrooms or restaurants. The coating creates a reflective, colored, marble-like surface.

7. Polished concrete - This has a glossy, smooth surface that is actually more slip resistant than bare concrete.

8. Protective seals - Concrete usually needs a sealant such as a polyurethane, acrylic, penetrating, or epoxy seal. The sealant prevents damage from water and weather and protects any coloring or finish you have.
