How To...Using Concrete in Design

Industrial Chic is certainly not new in the design world, but most are not lucky enough to live in a converted warehouse brimming with industrial elements.  Simply adding elements, like concrete and steel, to our own spaces can help to achieve the modern industrial look.

Concrete is also a means to transition between indoor and outdoor spaces, as those boundaries continue to fade in homes and restaurants.

Concrete is a near perfect design element. 

  • It has an organic look and feel that is appealing to rugged or modern tastes.
  • Concrete’s sustainability is appealing to designers and environmentalists as it is long-lasting and can be re-purposes and re-cycled.
  • For the artistic DIY’ers concrete can be thought of as a blank slate. Special inlays, patterns, stains or coloring can be used to create one-of-a-kind flooring, countertops, or molded furniture or design pieces.
  • Concrete can be used indoors or outdoors, or as mentioned, as a way to transition between the two areas.

Adding a few concrete pieces to your design space will help you reflect today’s industrial or rugged design trends and create a new look.  It seems that there is nothing that can’t be made using this versatile material, so, shop around, or make your own.
