Concrete coating that retains brushed roughness

I recently had a sun room constructed over a newly poured raised concrete slab. The concrete has a lightly brushed surface. I want to retain the lightly roughened surface of the concrete. Is there a type of concrete coating (stain/sealer, paint or epoxy) that would not result in a smooth finish?

You could use a solid color concrete stain. It will color the concrete but won't noticeably change the texture of the finish. I've always been partial to the H&C concrete stains.

H&C has been owned by sher-wms for over 25yrs according to my local guy,,, we just used their water-based translucent sealer at client's request,,, its loaded w/pigment so, IF you want the color shown on the paper chart, cut it w/water & apply light coats rather than 1 heavy,,, eg, for 1,000sf, we had 5gal - turns out 1 gal would've done it so we returned 5gal,,, once its down, you can't lighten it
