The Ultimate Concrete Look in Your Home: Achieving the Industrial Vibe

Posted on February 15, 2023 || News

Concrete was once limited to basements and garages, but it’s now a sought-after design element for homes with an industrial edge.

The beauty of cement lies in its versatility — this timeless and rugged material can be paired with a variety of styles and textures to transform your space into a modern industrial heaven.

So how can you incorporate the concrete design trend into your home? Keep reading below to find out how.

Use concrete flooring

If you love the feel of an industrial home, then give concrete its time in the spotlight.

Concrete flooring provides a blank canvas for your home decor. Its neutral tone allows you to experiment with a variety of design options, colours and finishes to create a sleek and industrial aesthetic.

Plus, concrete flooring promises a long life — all you’ll need to do to keep it in its original glory is simply sweep or mop the surface as needed.

Add some industrial elements

Transforming your home into an industrial heaven doesn’t have to stop at the flooring.

You can use industrial-inspired elements such as metal decor, hanging baskets filled with greenery, and velvet furniture to add focal points to your living space. Other materials, such as wood, can also be used to add texture and depth to your home.

What about lighting?

Lighting can play a key role in setting the tone and ambience of your space, and industrial-style lighting can be the perfect finishing touch to your industrial home.

Consider incorporating pendant lights over your kitchen island or dining table, or adding adjustable wall sconces or standing lamps throughout your living space.

Choose concrete countertops

Concrete countertops are a great way for achieving a modern industrial vibe.

With a wide range of colours, styles, and textures available, you’re guaranteed to find one that perfectly complements the look and feel of your space.

But apart from adding a sleek and industrial feel to your kitchen, concrete countertops are also incredibly durable and long-lasting. They are simple to clean and are resistant to scratches, stains, and heat, ensuring that they will look great for years to come.
