Charlie R. from Mount Airy, NC recently remodeled his basement to create more living space in his home. “My basement guest suite kitchen floors look so awesome. Thank you for all the info,” Charlie recently wrote to Direct Colors Technician, Tommy.

For the veined concrete floor design, Charlie used Coffee Brown and Black Acid Stains, sealed with a High Gloss Water Based Acrylic Sealer and added a coat of  Commercial Floor Wax  for shine longevity.

Finishing or remodeling basements to add more livable square footage to your home is great for you and for potential home buyers. Realtor.com recommends decorative concrete floors in basements, especially if water seepage may be an issue.

According to Remodeling magazine, basement remodels are the smartest home improvement investments in the long run. Direct Colors can help you finish basement floors and walls (if they’re concrete) for much less than any other option available on the market today. Looks Awesome, Costs Less!
