Styles of Polished Concrete Flooring
At DS Grinding, we believe that the finish style of your concrete floor is everything. The colour, level of stone exposure and final sheen are vital elements to the overall interior styling of your home. Which is why we will collaborate with you to come up with your desired polished concrete to suit your project and work in with your architectural and interior styling.
We offer a range of high-quality concrete mixes to fit any setting with plenty of options available.
The colours you choose can affect the final look of your concrete flooring which is why we offer a variety of polished concrete colours you can select from to suit your desired outcome.
The Three Styles of Polished Concrete We Offer
This is a highly specialised finish that leaves your concrete floor with an “unfinished” look. It still offers all the strengths and benefits of a true polish, but the finished product leaves you with a surface that is exceptionally raw looking, will highlight cracks, and often focuses on the varying colour scope throughout the slab. Please be aware that this exposure is not suitable for retrofits on an existing concrete floor.
Architectural Industrial Finish
Our most popular and versatile finish. An Architectural or Industrial Finish is perfectly suited to any home, industrial spaces or commercial project. With this type of finish, you can have more control over the finished product, including the level of stone exposure, flatness, and sheen.
Full Exposed Aggregate Finish
For those looking to make their floors POP, a fully exposed aggregate exposure the right choice for you. This type of finish will highlight the fully exposed aggregate throughout the floor, in new builds also offering the ability to choose concrete and stone colours, leaving you with an eye-catching feature throughout your property.
Polished Concrete Sheen
Once you’ve decided on a polished concrete floor style, then you can decide on how much you’d like it to shine! We have varying levels of concrete finish, or sheen levels, that can transform your concrete surfaces. These are all completed by our expert team of polished concrete specialists and done via a true mechanical polish, making your flooring up to 100x stronger than a grind and seal application.
The sheen finish you select will determine the final look of your concrete floor and how vibrant the polished concrete colours underneath the concrete surface will show through. You can achieve different results with different combinations of concrete mix colour, the level of natural stone exposure, polish style, and concrete finish.
We Offer Three Different Sheen Levels
Perfect for those who are looking for a natural beauty look for their flooring. This has minimal shine to it, and is perfect for homes that want a more contemporary feel.
A popular option for many homes, the satin polished finish is complimentary to almost any residential or commercial property. It offers just the right amount of sheen, so it won’t make rooms too bright, yet keeps the overall style looking very modern, yet well finished.
High Gloss Finish
Our high gloss finish for those who want their floors to make a statement. High gloss offers a mesmerising level of shine that is perfect for those people wanting to showcase the reflective capabilities of their polished concrete floor.

This is one of our most commonly asked questions, and the answer may surprise you… you can have the polished concrete look outdoors.
Honed concrete is an external version of polished concrete that is applied to outdoor projects. While you are limited to the type of sheen that can be achieved on a honed concrete surface (unfortunately medium and high shine applications pose safety risks outdoors), the finished product looks just as luxurious and high quality as an internal polished floor. Perfect for a seamless transition from indoors to outdoors
Our process for mechanically honing or polishing concrete is something that our team takes very seriously. We offer an experience for our customers that is unparalleled in our industry by offering a true start to finish service and precise attention to detail.
What this means is that before we start on your project we liaise with the builder, concreters and anyone else we will need to work closely with on the project. This is essential to us understanding the full scope of the project and being able to dive as soon as the concrete is ready.
Once the concrete has cured and is ready to be mechanically polished, our team will arrive to prep the area. Then using concrete diamond grinding equipment, we will remove the layers of concrete until the desired exposure is reached. After the desired exposure within the floor finish is achieved, we use speciality densifying products and grouting techniques over various stages to make the concrete surface more durable, hard wearing and stain resistant. From here our team will use concrete polishing equipment to polish the floor until the desired polished look is achieved. To finish off the concrete, we will then add one final 100% penetrative sealing coat that will protect the floor.
You will finally be left with stunning mechanically polished concrete floors to enjoy for years to come.
Due to the nature of the material, houses settling, and other factors, there can never be a guarantee that your concrete floor application won’t crack.
However, our team will take every precaution to reduce the chance of your concrete slab from cracking. We not only provide a set of recommendations to your builder/concreter that will opt for upgraded MPA, slab thickness, increase mesh specs and non-shrinkage agents in the concrete, we use specially manufactured concrete densifiers and hardeners to increase the strength of the concrete.
Usually surface cracks that appear during the build are completely filled during our final polishing stages towards the end of your project.
Our team personally thinks there are too many great reasons for having polished concrete floors as a flooring solution, especially here in Western Australia. However, these are the most popular reasons:
- Low maintenance: No more carpet cleaners! Polished concrete is very easy to clean with just a quick sweep and mop on occasion.
- Long lifespan: Major maintenance on your polished concrete floor won’t need to occur for quite some time if regular cleaning and standard floor maintenance is kept up.
- Polished concrete is affordable: While the initial cost might be more than other flooring products, its lifespan and overall upkeep makes it a much more sustainable and cost-effective product.
- Low allergen: For homeowners who suffer from allergies, polished concrete is a perfect option as dust mites, pollen, and other allergens have nowhere else to go (another reason to skip carpeting)
- Eco-friendly: Polished concrete doesn’t use any hazardous cleaners or coatings for upkeep. It also can help to reduce energy costs, since the reflective surface increases ambient lighting. They also have a thermal quality which means, that they help to keep your home cooler during the day, and at night leave it at a more comfortable temperature.
- Incredibly Attractive: Last but not least, they are a stylish, value adding element for any home. With unlimited types of concrete including standard concrete, full exposure or random exposure aggregate finishes, there is a perfect concrete floor option for any home. It is becoming an increasingly popular type of flooring for some homes, who are making the choice to remove their old flooring to reveal the existing concrete to be mechanically polished.
Yes! They’re a great option for families. They’re durability gives your pets and little ones a surface to play on that can handle their high energy play. The concrete surface is also low maintenance meaning it’s easy to clean spills, mess, and pet hair.
Plus, polished cement floors are hypoallergenic, so no need to worry about allergies!
