I have an older ranch home with a full length basement that needs some renovation. Specifically, we want to do something with the cracked concrete slab floor. An idea suggested to us by family was a "Paper Bag Floor".
What I could find out about it online has been that this kind of floor is made by taking pieces of crumpled brown paper(such as used to make paper shopping bags), lay them out overlapping on the floor, and pour clear Polyurethane over it. I've generalized a bit on the steps, but that's pretty much it.
I've found sites that detail the use of it on outside covered porches and in small indoor areas. My worry is that none of these sites really talk about the downsides to this kind of flooring.
Anyone have any experience or advice? We are also considering it for use in a small bathroom upstairs.
Thanks in advance,
