Exposed Aggregate Honed Concrete

If your looking for a matte finish concrete floor that is easy to clean, then consider honed concrete for an option.  Honed concrete is achieved by grinding the concrete to an even texture and then smoothing the surface with finer diamond pads. We typically stop at a 200 grit pad for honed concrete, if you wanted a polished surface you would continue to the next polishing pad. Honed concrete is beneficially because the duller surface wont show as much dust and dirt as a highly polished surface would. Honed concrete is an excellent choice for exterior patios and walkways. Take a look at the pictures below of an interior concrete floor that is honed to a 200 grit.
