Ever walked on a marble floor in bare feet? That’s what a Geostone™ polished concrete floor can feel like underfoot. Pure luxury.
Geostone™ polished floors are a treat for the eyes too, with a glossy, smooth surface that highlights the stunning colours and intricate aggregate details of each unique mix. Geostone™ is available in a range of colours as diverse as the Australian continent itself. The lighter shades are perfect for creating an impression of space and brightness, while the darker mixes make a statement and add drama.
But good looks and a premium feel tell only half the story. Geostone™ polished concrete floors bring a range of practical benefits to the home as well. They are easy to clean, require little maintenance, don’t harbor allergens and offer high thermal mass.
There’s only one decision left to make; which Geostone™ mix shall I choose? Ranging from cool and contemporary to warm and welcoming, the choice is yours.
Sourced from the great outdoors and designed for great outsides, the uniqueness of Australian stone is fused with reinforced concrete to create Geostone™ exposed aggregate decorative concrete. The stone used is extracted from the earth and carefully selected for its colour, size and shape to maintain its natural variation. Then, it’s put through a process that ensures a tough, versatile and visually stunning product suitable for driveways, pathways and landscaping.
Best of all, exposed aggregates like Geostone™ add value. According to research by Holcim in December 2016, an exposed aggregate driveway can add up to 15% to the market value of a home, well ahead of traditional alternatives such as pavers and plain concrete.
So, imagine. You’re arriving home after a long day. You pause for a fleeting moment to take in your stunning, flowing, Geostone™ driveway. In an instant calmness descends as the natural textures and colours seem to whisper; ‘welcome home’.

Trompe L’oeil is a French term that means to deceive the eye: an artistic tradition which dates back to the ancient Greeks. So, what is this actually?
