I have been thinking about flooring options for my kitchen and I’m considering simple light-grey concrete to replace the cheap and chipped beige ceramic tile. But I'm wondering if it's good for the kitchen?

Concrete flooring, and even countertops, for the home have gained in popularity over the last decade. Aside from custom colours and unique patterns and designs, concrete is durable and can withstand foot traffic and food spills.
This floor will never need replacement and it is an excellent eco-conscious choice. Also, concrete floors have energy-saving capabilities, allowing you to benefit from a cooler floor during the summer and a warm one during winter, due to the absorption of the sun’s heat.
Before installing a concrete floor, get the advice of a professional contractor: some subsurface and structural support are often required before the installation of a concrete floor. Plan your budget and time frame accordingly.
