Are you having trouble figuring out a unique gift for your spouse this Valentines Day? Are you trying to think of something besides the cliché flowers, chocolates, and stuffed animals? Do you want something that your significant other will always remember and appreciate? Are you familiar with the versatility of modern concrete design and staining?
It may seem unlikely, but Hard Rock Concrete may have the perfect gift idea for you.
It really is possible to get a look to match nearly any decor or motif, and in many cases it’s cheaper than using other building materials. In fact, you’ve probably seen many concrete structures—both inside and outside properties—all around your city without even realizing it. This Valentine’s Day, why not consider building your significant other the perfect counter tops, outdoor patio, or flooring? Don’t just build the perfect unique structure, but also give it the perfect look and color. Sounds impossible? Not if you consider concrete.
Since concrete is a relatively malleable material when it is wet, it can be formed into almost any shape imaginable. This means that if you have an elaborate countertop or shelving design in mind, chances are it can be built with concrete. Concrete is excellent for achieving fluid curves and round shapes that just aren’t practical in other building materials like wood. Concrete can also be sectioned and shaped to mimic other building materials. This includes man-made materials like tile or metal and organic materials like stone or wood. Concrete is sturdy by itself and can easily be combined with other building materials to create truly unique structures indoors and out.
Concrete can also be treated and stained to achieve an infinite number of looks. By etching concrete, it can be treated to absorb color at different rates and also to achieve different textures. Depending on how the concrete was etched, it can then be treated with a stain or an epoxy coating for color. Or these two methods can be combined to get truly unique looks. Stains are typically used to achieve washed looks that might resemble the natural look of stone or other multi-toned surfaces. Epoxy coatings can be used to get solid colors that both treat and seal the concrete. Combining these two methods can get results to fit a myriad of different motifs which includes smooth polished stone, or a modern minimalist exposed (but finished) concrete look.
Imagine having the perfect concrete countertop accents that will remain beautiful for the life of your home. Or, having the perfect concrete floor that completely transforms the look of your basement into a regal hall. Hard Rock Concrete can also stain your outdoor concrete to perfectly match your property. Acid staining and epoxy coatings can be used to achieve any look. These are gifts ideas that are surprising, impactful, and will last indefinitely.
