I’ve been house shopping online (which is difficult) and planning renovations that I will likely have to do. I hope that our house has ugly floors because I want to have the concrete floors underneath scored and stained to look like marble tile. My last apartment in college had floors like this and I fell in love with how expensive they looked and how easy they were to care for. My floors were a medium brown color with dark patches, but the stain comes in a variety of colors and looks great outdoors as well.
I found the site www.kemiko.com, where they sell the stain so that you can do-it-yourself. It is a great look and very durable. Most people thought my floor was an expensive stone, so I plan on using this look again.
