The benefits of polished concrete accrue first and foremost to users and of course first impressions being the most critical for customers, appeal to the eyes tops the list. At Smarter Flooring we know that a floor that appeals will get noticed first while laggards are relegated to the side lines and this is perfectly understandable. That’s why the sheen of a particular class of polished floor must coincide perfectly with the floor that it covers. A high end retail store attracts high gloss sheen, while a café or bar is given a subdued sheen for obvious reasons – purpose and sheen match.
