There are several alternatives to concrete flooring. Most options will depend on what area of the house you are considering finishing and what the requirements of the area will be. A pool area will have different requirements than a basement, garage, patio, sun room, Concrete staining or recreation room. As such, choosing the best flooring option will depend on the specific details of the space.
To start, one should evaluate the needs of the area, the occupants, and the activities to take place in this area. This should give you a good idea what type of floor surface will best suit your needs before you begin to research the available option.

This will cause you extra time and effort due to reviewing alternatives that may not be viable for your project.
