If you’re having concrete floors installed in a commercial setting, a hard concrete floor is recommended. The hardness will allow for forklifts and other mobile machinery to move about without causing damage to the floor.
If you have these concerns for a residential area, there are ways to cushion the concrete, such as area rugs. You also do not need to worry about the concrete being abrasive to your feet. Unlike the road concrete you may be familiar with, indoor concrete can be polished and finished.

Are Concrete Floors Cold and Damp?
With the availability of radiant heating cables, these can be embedded into the concrete. Since concrete has thermal properties, it can store and radiate heat. You will be able to control the temperature of the floors. This is really great, especially in the winter.
In new homes, building codes require the installation of a vapor barrier under any concrete slabs in order to block out moisture which causes the feeling of dampness.
In summer and in hot climates, a cooler floor can be an advantage and can actually help lower air-conditioning costs.
