As far as colors are concerned, there’s no single design strategy that works best when concrete floors are involved. The decor can be minimalist and based on the timeless black and white combo, can include a bold accent color or can rely on numerous color tones in which case the result is an eclectic look. Here, the simplicity of the interior design is complemented by the panoramic views that brings freshness and color inside
Turn on any home-design TV show and you’ll repeatedly hear the words “open concept.” Tearing down walls to create open floor plans for the living, dining and kitchen area is what open-concept design is all about.
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.
Even without the warmth of wood, a living space with polished concrete flooring can look welcoming and comfortable. It’s the big picture that matters, the textures and finishes used, the color tones and the very elements involved in the design.
