New polished floor in our home in France

Our builders took away the sisal floor we had laid down ten years ago, applied a new layer of concrete, polished it and paint it with hard-wearing floor paint. The walls are getting a new coat of pure white paint too.

This option was a third of the cost of a polished concrete floor and still looks fantastic. We will see over time if it is hard wearing… You can select the colour of the floor you want so we opted for a soft grey (similar to our resin floor in London) to contrast gently with the walls painted in pure white and keep a feel-good holiday vibe.

Mila’s room is being done too and I will share more photos once we’ve made progress in both rooms…

For those renovating houses in France, here is what we used:

PS: the house is available for rentals throughout the year here. August is now fully booked but there is still a few availabilities left in July.

    I live in France and would love to use this technique on our kitchen floor. Can you tell me what it’s called in French? Looks fantastic!
