Depending upon what style you want, you can select the stains for your concrete floor. There are basically two types: Acid-based stain & Water-based stain. They have also come in various colors, such as brown and grey shades, blue and black.
But let me tell you that they’re a little on the expensive side but definitely worth every penny. So if your budget allows you, go for stained concrete floors.
Trend #4. Classic Vinyl Flooring
