    Bathroom - Polished cement look

    I'm now planning on revamping the old loo upstairs, it's on 2 x 3m or there about but the look i'm after is the stressed cement top to bottom with a mixture of wood and stainless fittings. I've seen a few on my visits but are there any drawbacks to this as in longevity?

    I assume that unless a particular type of cement is needed is shouldn't be that expensive?

    My garage floor in BKK is like this. It just takes a bit of careful finishing.

    Old gits like you need to be careful. Another polished concrete floor more suitable for bathroom.

    sounds like a power float finish they use on factory floors
    you can do it without a powerfloat ,
    for a small area ,you need to get the wet concrete dead level , then when its reasonably firm, but not quiet set ,use a good steel hand trowel to bring the cement fat to the surface ,and go over and over and over it ,till your arm drops off , then you a nice smooth shell finish '
    slippery as fuk when wet .

    The bathrooms that I have been in that have had this layout were not slippy at all.
