    Hi David, the company that did this particular floor, are no longer trading. However it was a micro concrete so very thin. It was a difficult installation as it cracked in the early days and had to be redone. Do your homework on who you use and ask for references. If possible, ask to see existing installations. Good Luck. SC

Master a micro concreteIf weight and/or access make a conventional, wet-cast concrete floor out of the question, consider a much thinner micro-top concrete instead.At just 3mm thick, the mix of cement and polymers is applied using a trowel in multiple layers over a few days. And while a micro-concrete is slim, it’s still long-lasting, tough and water-resistant, and offers a similar look.

Given Andrea’s quest for light, the dark wall colour – Farrow & Ball’s Down Pipe – seems a surprising choice at first. ‘They were very keen to add an element of drama to the scheme,’ says Siobhan. ‘Andrea wanted it to be a talking point and felt that uniform white walls would look a little dull.’ The polished concrete floor injects an industrial-style vibe into the space. ‘It’s a great look with a seamless finish, but it was a practical choice, too,’ explains Siobhan. ‘With three kids and all their friends coming in and out, as well as a dog, Andrea wanted a surface that was easy to sweep and mop clean. And the underfloor heating means it isn’t cold underfoot.’Paint in Down Pipe, Farrow & Ball.
