This hard man-made material is anything but grey!
In the past, concrete was often relegated to the exterior of homes or was covered up with more eye-pleasing materials if it had in the interior. However, in recent days, its beauty is acknowledged, leaving plenty of homes to feature the material in its raw and unadulterated form.
You can create a home aesthetic around it by using concrete as your main wall or floor treatment. Depending on whether you are going for an industrial look or a Scandinavian-inspired one, all you have to do is layer upon it accordingly with the right furnishing, accents, accessories, and lighting fixtures. A concrete feature wall is also a great alternative if you don’t want to overdo it.
If a concrete jungle is not what your dreams are made of, try starting small by going with concrete accents and side pieces. In the living room, try a bare concrete coffee table; the dining room, a solid concrete top dining table; the kitchen, a concrete countertop. Keep it subtle and keep it clean, which is what bare concrete is all about.
Don’t forget the accessories! Elevate the look of your coffee table with a concrete board or a concrete candle holder. Do the same with your walls and ceilings by choosing a concrete pendant lighting fixture, or charming concrete hooks for your walls.
