We have recently moved into a new build with a concrete floor throughout the downstairs. The concrete is quite rough and pockmarked (though there’s no particularly large variations and it’s level). We were wanting to do a stencilled floor design painted onto the concrete in the kitchen but we’d need to get it smooth first. I was looking at self levelling compounds and have found a few that can be used as a final finish but I can’t seem to find out if we’d be able to paint on to them or if there’d be some other steps in between. Does anyone know what we’d have to do? Or alternatively is there a better/different way of getting the floor in a better condition to paint onto? Many thanks for any advice.
