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
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.
It’s not just the combination of materials that makes this living room look stunning. We find the lighting to be exquisite and we absolutely love the bright green sofa and matching ottoman, not to mention all those gorgeous throw pillows. This is a space designed by Karawitz Architecture and, as you can see, it makes the most out of its polished concrete floor.
A pattern is already starting to emerge: the combination of wood and concrete, two materials that complement each other beautifully and in every sense. Exposed concrete was used extensively by Henri Cleinge in the design of this home from Montreal, Canada but so was wood. These two materials define both the interior and the exterior living spaces.
