A concrete basement floor offers you many choices if you decide to transform your basement into living space. It used to be the "norm" to cover up that ugly gray cement flooring and lay some carpet or tile over it. Not any more!
With the new concrete overlays, concrete stains and polished concrete techniques, the concrete floor in your basement is a great material to use as the finished flooring.
