Six months ago, we purchased a mid-century rancher in southwest florida and promptly removed the existing carpet, tile and linoleum floors. Our initial plan was to polish the underlying concrete ourselves, and very quickly we revised that plan after finding that the subfloor needed some rejuvenation. We found tons of useful information on concretenetwork.com as well, and after meeting with three or four local concrete guys we hired the one who seemed most knowledgeable (incidentally, his also was the highest estimate). He poured a thin layer of new concrete throughout the house (except bathrooms) and applied a troweled finish at our request. The finished product was left a natural grey color (like the picture in the original post) and sealed with high gloss. We absolutely love our floors. I cook a lot and have had no pain in feet or joints. Now that the daily temperature around here is consistently in the mid-80s, we're also excited that the floors stay so cool so that don't have to run the A/C during the day.
