A lot of architects and homeowners appreciate polished concrete floors for their modern appeal but also their pure and practical nature. It’s a look that suits not only minimalist, contemporary spaces but also mid-century and even traditional decors. This eclectic living space designed by Bourne Blue Architects is a nice example.
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. Check out this simplistic residence renovated by Federico Delrosso Architects and be inspired.
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.
When they designed this home in the Czech Republic, OOOOX used the concrete floors to give the living area a sophisticated and modern look. The bare ceiling has a similar effect on the decor. Further more, the color palette is neutral and the lighting is spot on and these details influence the overall design and ambiance in a similar manner.
