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.
A different strategy was used by Cornerstone Architects when they designed this residence in Austin, Texas. To give the living room a warm and cozy ambiance while keeping the decor simple, they combined a polished concrete floor with a wood-clad accent wall and neutral-colored furniture and carpeting.
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.
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.
