Flair and design alternatives  are implemented at the very start the moment the floor is poured. Bits and pieces that include unique stones, colored glass, reprocessed glass items, car parts or diverse hued rocks will be broadcast in the floor surface, and then exposed when the concrete is ground and polished. Even though this alternative starts when a building is being built, there are also a lot of options after the concrete is laid.

Styles can also be produced into the concrete floor with etching, or a different color, pattern, boarder at a particular area in the floor. When outlining lines and etching, many designs can be invented that are very unique, but also detailed tile styles grids can be applied as well. Custom made signs or Logo's can also be put directly into the polished concrete floor, a terrific option on walk ways into retail and office stores.

Coloring options are in wide array and how the color is distributed on the concrete is open to the clients desire. Colors can be more solid and brilliant, or more translucent with lots of character producing a virtually marble like floor.
