Concrete as a building and décor material has already conquered the whole world, it’s budget-friendly, simple to install and looks sleek and modern. Concrete is widely used for lots of décor styles and for different things, from walls and floors to furniture and accessories, and many of these things can be DIYed, which is another great advantage. If you are into concrete and want to try it for decorating your home, this roundup is right what you need because I’m sharing some ways to use concrete in a cool way in your home.
Concrete walls are a popular thing now, leave them rough and unfinished for a cooler and trendier look. Concrete is a super practical solution, which can be successively used in kitchens and bathrooms and of course showers. Concrete can last super long without losing its sleek modern look and it’s pretty easy to take care of, besides, you can make such walls yourself – what else do you need in such spaces as bathrooms where it’s humid or in the kitchen for your backsplash that is to be cleaned often? You may also use concrete for living room and bedroom walls to achieve a modern or industrial look, and for masculine spaces, too, I can’t even name another more appropriate material. If you want something more eye-catching, go for concrete mosaic tiles to create an accent wall. To make the space feel warmer, you may try warm wood floors and ceilings with concrete walls.
Installing concrete floors happens for the same reasons that I’ve already stated: it’s budget-friendly, can be installed by yourself and looks modern and fresh being durable at the same time. Concrete floors are usually polished to avoid cracking and to prevent dirt accumulation. They may be a little slippery but concrete can also be sealed with a non-slip epoxy coating to add texture and prevent falls and injuries. If you think that concrete is boring and monotonous, you are so wrong! There are several shades of this material and besides you can paint it or stain with acid yourself to get an eye-catchy look. concrete can be painted and polished so that you’d never understand what material it is.
Concrete is often used for ceilings today, not cause of its durability but to create a mood and impress. A minimalist all-white bedroom may look stunning with rough concrete ceiling. If your space is industrial, then such a ceiling is a must. Besides, concrete looks very cool with itself, so you can rock it all around, from floors to the ceilings. Polished, mosaic, colorful, rough, it’s always in trend!
