Kintsugi Style Concrete Floor Restoration | Newton, MA

Home 9 Concrete 9 Kintsugi Style Concrete Floor Restoration | Newton, MA

Beyond being lovers of stone, we like to think of Boston Stone Restoration as problem solvers, creative thinkers and above all, project partners with our clients.

Recently, one of our long-time collaborators (and marketing team leader) asked us to get creative on a small, concrete floor that served as the entryway for her cozy Newton, MA home.

The homeowner shared images of the very fractured concrete floor and asked if we thought it would be possible to create a “kintsugi” floor. Kintsugi is traditionally the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with gold or silver lacquer which makes the crack repair part of the value and history of an object rather than something to hide or fix.

It took a few weeks to form a plan, since a concrete entry is basically an exterior application, we needed a solution that would work with the extreme temperatures in New England, so with some consultation from our fellow stone and concrete experts, we came up with a plan to clear out the existing cracks and fill with terrazzo and gold epoxy binder, grind the concrete to level, polish and coat with a darker surface paint, then polish to a shine. To learn more about that process, check out Part 1 of this blog series here.

The results are nothing short of stunning, and both the homeowner and our team were thrilled.
