Touching up your home can turn into something of a fiasco, especially when you start looking into how much everything is going to cost!

Even if you wanted to, a hardwood floor can sometimes be monetarily out of reach; or you could even just not want to keep up with the upkeep. Regardless of why, here's a solution we can all get behind.

This hardwood looking floor isn't made from wood at all, in fact, it's entirely done on concrete, and you can even do it yourself at home. The great thing about this technique is that you're not limited to a hardwood floor design, you could easily make it into a large floor motif that the entire family could get in on!

Many people prefer hardwood floors over all the other types. Wood floors are beautiful and come in many different styles, colors, finishes, and grains. The same goes for fake wood floors like Pergo, but the downside is the higher cost that comes with purchasing, installing, and maintaining them. A much cheaper alternative is concrete flooring, which sounds dull and blehh. However, there is a way to instantly upgrade a classic concrete floor into faux bois, which is French for fake wood. Sounds fancy, right?

With a few extra steps you can take your ugly duckling concrete floor and transform it into a rich, warmly textured, glowing hardwood-esque surface. The design is called wood concrete and this video shows all the main stages of such a floor being installed from start to finish. The video description says that the process isn't hard to do, so long as you have the right products and techniques. It's an excellent way to get more bang for your buck when it comes to interior design and the end results look remarkable. This is a wonderful technique that seems ideal for basements, play rooms, mud rooms, and so on. In comparison to hardwood, concrete stands up much better to water, animals, kids, and all the scratching and wear and tear that comes with them. Plus, it's way less expensive!
