    That is certainly unique. Did you notice in the last photo I posted in the "Another what is this thread" that I have stained concrete flooring? The jury is still out whether I would ever do it again.

    No I didn't notice that what would you say are the pros and cons ?
    Mostly we want terrazzo and or wood but I hate this tile and could like the stained concrete if it was slick shiny and had depth to the finish. here are some Favorites from here http://www.hardwoodfloorsmag.com/news/wood-floor-of-the-year-photos-1999-2014.html

    Some of those floors are way too ornate for my taste; but, they are incredible and beautiful.

    now, for my opinions re: stained concrete...

    First of all, they are hard, harder than...well, as hard as concrete; they are easy to clean--except if you drop anything with the slightest bit of greasy substance, that will show up immediately and will forever be part of the "design" in the finish. The finish is naturally irregular, mottled, and varied so you really don't know if it is a greasy stain or "just how it is." They are slick, sometimes when Sweet Arabella is racing through the house at full tilt and turns a corner she slides into the wall. I understand that every few years it is necessary to have a professional come in and do a "wax job" to keep them in top shape. You can't use anything with rubbery or latex backing on them as it will leach onto the finish.

    They look fabulous IMHO regular hard waxing would be expected, thankfully we have a live in pro. I still think I prefer the wood or strand bamboo stuff, the install need not be too complicated. the first and the last are fine.

    I AM NOT WAXING NO FLOORS!!! I would prefer hardwood. My whole house is stained concrete except for the bedrooms which are carpeted. I have room size rugs in the living and dining rooms.

    Wow
    Brown Paper Bag Flooring - This involves creating a glue solution with which you use to lay down the bags on top of the floor. This technique costs about 35 cents per sq foot. http://lovelycraftyhome.com/2011/11/...looring-guide/
