Our team at Dancer Concrete Design recently installed polished concrete floors for Sara’s Sweets, a new bakery in Lima, Ohio. Sara Anderson and her team bake gourmet cupcakes including tasty and unique flavors such as Cappuccino Chip, Churro, and Maple Bacon. They offer a cupcake flavor calendar highlighting when your favorite flavors will be available and some everyday favorites. Sara’s Sweets also specializes in catering cupcakes for weddings and other events. When thinking about design, Sara was looking for a neutral background for her colorful cupcakes.
Since the building was new construction, our team went into this 1,200 square-foot project with a blank slate. After the concrete was poured, we started installing our StrongTread Polish — Modern system. The aggregate exposed was cream – very fine aggregate exposure. After 4 polishing passes, the floor had a 400-grit satin finish. They wanted to utilize the floor’s natural color instead of opting for a dye or stain. We also filled all control joints with Warm Stone coloring to best match the floor’s natural look.
With her newly polished natural concrete floors, Sara will have a clean and sophisticated look added to her space while requiring little maintenance and being very durable. That’s a pretty sweet deal!
