The features of honed concrete

Honed concrete Sydney.

Honed concrete is created by using special tools to grind down the surface of the concrete to create a smooth, matte finish.

Honed concrete has a low sheen and consistent texture and is often chosen as an understated alternative to polished concrete.

It can be used in a variety of applications, providing a durable and long-lasting material that can be customised to fit any interior design or setting.

How is a honed concrete surface achieved? 

To achieve a honed concrete finish, the surface of the concrete is first ground down using diamond-grit tools until it is smooth and even.

The level of grinding can be adjusted to achieve different levels of smoothness, from a light-honed finish to a more heavily ground surface.

Once complete, the newly honed concrete surface is typically sealed to protect it from staining. This also enhances the appearance of the honed concrete.
