Concrete Steps

When updating the interior of the home, most people overlook the stairs. In addition to enhancing a winding staircase, decorative concrete steps will completely change the appearance of a simple or short staircase. In other words, the size and type of stairs do not matter. With the right decorative concrete solution, the entire foyer area becomes fresh and inviting.

Depending on how elaborate of a design you want, you can change the appearance of the entire stairs, meaning top and front, or just one or the other. For a more formal foyer and grand staircase, acid stain produces gorgeous and unique results. When applied, the acid penetrates and reacts with chemicals in the concrete. The outcome is a one-of-a-kind marbled effect. By combining that with reflective lighting, your concrete steps will become a stunning masterpiece.

On the other hand, if your home has a more industrial look and feel, you might consider an epoxy coating. A beautiful color along with the addition of metallic flakes, quartz beads, or colored glass chips would make the concrete steps stand out. At the same time, you benefit from the wear, impact, stain, and abrasion resistance of the epoxy, as well as its slip-resistant surface. Ultimately, your concrete stairs will last a lifetime and always look amazing.

If you want whimsical concrete steps, consider two or more vibrant colors offered by a water-based stain.

The installer can also create unique design elements based on the look you want to achieve. No matter which direction you take, everyone will love the transformed steps of your staircase
