There was a time when bare concrete floors stayed well hidden beneath carpets, parquet flooring and tiles, when it was inconceivable to leave them exposed and the very idea that they could look good like that was not even taken into consideration. Now we know better than to dismiss it and concrete floors are actually trendy in modern and contemporary interior design. We’ve learned to embrace their raw and pure beauty and to complement them with comfortable furniture, textured accent rugs and warm wood elements. Let’s see how some architects and designers chose to integrate concrete floors into their projects.
The versatility of concrete floors can be explored in many different ways. Each design does that in its own unique way. The approach for this lovely home designed by Canyon Construction was to bring the outdoors in and to play with simple materials to create a casual yet elegant and sophisticated decor.
Somewhere in Montana there’s a very cool retreat with an interior design done by Ann Knight Interiors. A combination of polished concrete floors, full-height glass windows, wooden ceilings and stone accent walls allow the spaces to feel connected to the rugged mountain landscape that surrounds them. The design strategy was simple and very effective.
There’s something really special about the overall look and feel of this charming, girlish and a punch of glam kitchen. And this light, laminate floor choice helps to grant ht illusion of the room being even bigger and more delicate.
