This project is a finished basement acid-stained concrete floor with saw-cut 3.5-foot-square diagonal tile pattern. We used Decosup Chemtone "Bronze", a green color with brown highlights and were able to achieve a fantastic marbling effect on the concrete. The floor is in a renovated home in a north neighborhood of Chicago.
We sealed the acid-stained concrete with a solvent-based clear acrylic sealer and water-based gloss floor finish. The homeowner was particularly pleased that we were able to take the decorative saw-cuts right up to the wall, using special concrete engraving tools from Engrave-A-Crete. This is something usually not possible once the framing and walls have been installed.
