Concrete floors are a great, modern alternative. Not only are they durable, they can lend a very industrial look to a home. Concrete floors can be glossy or not. One popular option is to paint them a flat color, stencil a design all over or just on a certain portion of the floor, or mimic “tiling” by painting different colored squared on them. You can even get concrete floors that look like hardwood floors! The care for concrete floors is very easy, just sweeping and wiping down as needed, or repainting if yours are painted.
