We had a flood last year and had to rip out all of the carpet in the 500 square foot kitchen.  We have debated on what to put down in it's place but have decided that painting or staining the concrete slab might be the best way to go.  There are some cracks and some ridges maybe from the carpet glue but we fely that might lend the floor some character and keep it from being slippery.  What steps do we need to take to stain or paint this slab and do you think this is a good way to go with a concrete slab in a kitchen this size?
