Have you ever wanted to have some custom creations in your bathroom? For most homeowners, having custom creations decorative concrete in their bathrooms can add that extra bit of elegance and class. Most home improvement stores carry decorative concrete floors, tiling, and pavers. You may want to add in a decorative concrete counter top or a custom-made shelf liner, or if you have enough room you could have your very own custom-made waterfall!
Using concrete as a flooring material is relatively cheap and the look is very durable. Concrete can withstand heavy use and can also be made into various designs depending on your needs and desires. Since concrete is non-penetrable, it’s great for using in places where water is used such as the bathroom or kitchen since it won’t absorb any water.
Concrete may not be the best choice for a kitchen or bathroom since it doesn’t absorb moisture easily and it’s not fire resistant either. However, it can be used as a splash-back design to reduce moisture absorption in areas prone to leaks. Some people may prefer concrete in their kitchens and bathrooms, simply because it’s easier to clean and maintain. If you do opt for concrete as a flooring material in your new construction project, you will need to make sure that you have adequate water absorbent materials to deal with any unexpected leaks. In cases where you can’t control where water goes, having drain tiles or outlets installed is the next best thing.
If you have a wall in your bathroom or kitchen that is prone to leaks, you may want to consider some custom creations to redirect the water. There are many products out there that can be used for this purpose including sinks with built-in sinks and counter tops that are made from porous concrete material. If you can’t find anything else that would work, using concrete as a splash-back or as a barrier against water may work. Just make sure to move everything away quickly after you pour the concrete so it doesn’t splatter or create a puddle when it dries.
If you are building a home and you already have a well, you might want to consider installing a sump pit beneath your existing foundation. This will give you instant protection from any water damage if you should get unlucky and have a major flood. However, just like with the sump pump, you will have to make sure that your foundation is strong enough to hold up. If you don’t, the concrete could collapse and cause a lot of damage. It may even end up causing damage to the entire home as well, which is why it’s important to make sure that your foundation is able to withstand a significant amount of weight.
Finally, some custom creations are made for commercial structures. For example, if you have a swimming pool or hot tub in your back yard, you may want to make a custom concrete barrier to keep the water out. In the same way, if you have a fence around your property, you can make a custom concrete gate to keep the animals out. No matter what the purpose, it’s always easier to have something custom built rather than something that someone else decides to design. It may take a bit longer, but in the end it will be worth it because you won’t have to worry about paying out a lot of money for something that was in no way intended to be part of your landscape.
