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.
Here’s a relaxed kitchen full of neutral, brown tones and it’s finished off with a spotless, wood-laminate floor that pops and contrasts with the cream cabinetry. If you’re looking for something a bit more unique, do some research on gray wood-laminate flooring like you see here in this youthful and trendy living room. It creates a foundation that’s so much more fun and interesting!
For some, separate rooms still hold their charm. But many homeowners today are taking a sledgehammer to their traditional floor plans so they can enjoy cooking, eating and movie watching all in one space. Decades ago, homes were built with the notion that every room has a distinct function. You cook in a kitchen, so it was a separate room — often with a door. Dining rooms were formal. Living rooms were for entertaining or relaxing, and were set apart from the kitchen.
