The first thing that you’re going to want to do is determine what you want the finished outcome to be. Make a list of the different design elements that your want your project to include. Here are a few things that you might want to consider as you compile your list:
* Texturing – you might want to add an element of texture to compliment the smooth sections of your polished concrete. This will require an etching treatment for the concrete after it has been polished.
* Text or logo – if you’re working on a project for your office or business, will you be adding any kind of company logo or text, such as in an entryway or foyer.
