We are considering selling our home in the next 2-3 years and want any updates we make to be conducive to marketing it. We are in a tri-level home and the lower level needs to have the flooring replaced. I do not like carpeting due to allergy issues, so we were considering doing an acid wash concrete. I have seen it in some high-end homes and love the look, but don’t know how widely accepted it is in moderately priced homes. Any suggestions?
Thanks for the question! The acid wash concrete (when done properly) is a fine flooring choice for areas where you might otherwise do tile, concrete, or vinyl (such as a bathroom, laundry room, wet bar area, or patio). However, I’d be cautious of doing it in a family room or other living space. Generally speaking anything other than carpet or wood (hardwood, engineered hardwood, or high quality wood laminate) in a living room or family room is a really tough sell.
