We’ve had a great time up in Walthamstow working with estate agents Andrew and Kenny – aka the Stow Brothers – to create a gorgeous floor for their stylish new offices.
The concrete Microscreed finish complements the modern aesthetic of the space and is designed to stand up to the rigours of a full-time working environment without wearing down or becoming shabby:
We wanted to create a professional, contemporary environment that had a bit of an ‘edge’ to it. The Microscreed looked so good with the exposed brickwork in the walls – it really completed the style we were going for, and the installation process was so simple. We love it!

When we started the job it took a lot of work to even out the floor; it needed preparation with diamond grinders and an epoxy primer along with our Microscreed system. But we managed to get the whole thing done as quickly and painlessly as possible in time for their grand opening last month.
You can find more images of the work we’ve done with Andrew and Kenny along with some other of our designs and ideas on our Pinboard.
Deciding to use a concrete floor or surfacing for your home or business can have many benefits: it’s stylish, long-lasting, practical and hypoallergenic. Here are our top tips on choosing the right concrete flooring for you:
Do your research
There are a multitude of poured concrete floors out there and it’s important to select the right one for your family, home or customers. Make sure you take the time to investigate all of your options and talk directly to the professionals before making any decisions.
Know the risks
Polished concrete floors can often require maintenance and care to keep them looking their best. Spills need to be cleaned up quickly or there’s a risk of staining. Many polished concrete floors are prone to cracking and discolouration, so consider investing in a Microscreed option for a sustainable product, which is more suitable for home flooring or bathroom surfaces.
Concrete floors are a stylish and modern feature for homes and commercial buildings alike. As with all interior design, concrete flooring will look best when it complements your existing surroundings. With something like a poured resin floor the colour options are truly limitless, so you can create the right style for you.
Sustainability is everything nowadays. Not only does thinking about the longevity of your floor mean that you can plan ahead, it also means you can save money, time and energy whilst contributing towards a greener and more sustainable future. Unlike timer, tiles or carpet, at the end of its finished flooring life, a concrete floor is part of the structure so there is no residual waste to remove. A Microscreed option won’t even use any harsh chemicals, as it’s water-based.
Whether you’re concerned for your family or your customers make sure that the floor you choose will stay clean, safe and smooth. Most poured resin and Microscreed flooring is seamless, hypoallergenic and waterproof, but explore all the options available with this in mind before making your choice.
