This is the main room of a
2,300 sq. ft. residential finished basement. The concrete floor
was acid-stained after scoring
a 28" interior wall border around the perimeter of the room and 4.5'
diagonal tiles on the interior. Artcrete's "Onyx" acid
stain was used to create a black border, and then Artcrete's "Nickel" acid stain
for body of the room. Up close, the tiles look
like an elegant white (or gray) marble. The saw cuts were also stained
dark brown to help the tiles stand out. The floor was
sealed with three coats of a solvent acrylic sealer and several coats of Spartan's On
'n On floor finish for added protection.
