We love custom jobs. When we can go into someone’s home or business and give them a finish that takes their space to the next level it brings us much satisfaction and joy. Plus, it’s just plain FUN! So we were thrilled when Molly, of Molly Scott Interior Design, came to us with a floor design for Sunnies FroSun Yogurt. Her vision included a floor that would be both durable, and have the design elements and vibrant colors incorporated in the theme for the space. One of the most durable finishes available on the market for concrete flooring is polishing the existing concrete. When concrete is polished, a chemical densifier is used to make it harder. Polishing happens with pads that contain different sizes of diamonds (fancy huh?). As you work up through the various diamond grits you are also closing the pores, thereby making the floor very stain resistant. At this point color may be added to the concrete, making an otherwise drab grey floor come to life.
Along the curved wall there is also a full color beach scene, so Molly and the owners of Sunnies wanted the blue in the floor to represent water, and the tan to be like sand on a beach.
We used our concrete grinder to remove an existing concrete stain, as well as some carpet glue and drywall mud.
After doing some color samples for the customer, we taped off each section and colored it as per the samples.
Check out the end result!
If you get a chance, stop in and see the floor first hand… and have some “frosun” yogurt. Who’s gonna turn that down? I mean, really…
We enjoy being able to take a client’s vision and make it come to life. They were so pleased they asked us to finish the floor for their next location. We’re excited to have the opportunity to do what we love again soon!
