John, I'm going to be making area rugs out of carpet and Instabind with padding underneath. I'll try to get creative with those for different looks. The main one will cover most of the home theater area, so I'm assuming that will be enough to tame reflections. While the design in the concrete will be mostly covered, I still want it there.

I like the look as well Charles. I'd feel remiss though if I didn't mention that walking on concrete as part of your daily routine can be very hard on your joints. It can lead to long term foot, knee, hip and back issues. Just ask any mechanic why they never shortchange themselves on expensive work boots.

I'm sure the rug will really tie the room together.

Thanks for the heads-up. Peter was saying something similar when I posted about it on Facebook. I'll have to invest in slippers like he suggested.

I stand at work (good for my back). Get one of those commercial rubber mat thingies for your kitchen workspace (business Costco in Fife or a restaurant supply house or something).

I was definitely planning on getting a couple of those for the kitchen, but I hadn't figured out what brand. Are the ones you're referring to different from the ones I can get from Amazon.com?

I suppose I only posted pics of my polished concrete floor on Facebook, not here. I decided against a design. I wasn't even going to dye it, but the guy suggested some color so the new concrete and old concrete didn't clash so much.







They're still coming back to put on one more coat of sealer and do one more buff. I'm happy with the look overall, but you can see parts of it look a little cloudier than the rest, so here's hoping that can be improved.

Very nice Charles. I can't wait to see how the finished room will look
