Our epoxy works great for small areas. The epoxy does make for a slicker floor at first, but it will not be slippery after walking on it a few times. Once the floor develops some traffic, microscopic scratches on the surface will appear (these are not visible in most cases) and increase the grip of the floor tremendously.
While this type of surface is beautiful when dry, it can become as slippery as an ice rink sometimes with the introduction of water, mud, or oils. However, the best is to always clean up spills immediately to avoid accidents.
