Pros and Concrete

Concrete isn't just for sidewalks or foundations...it is the perfect material to incorporate into any design.

Because of its nature, concrete can be manipulated in so many ways, which lends itself to work into any decor. Concrete can create a slick, polished look when it is smooth and seamless. For a more industrial or rustic feel, it can provide an opportunity for texture and movement. Another nice thing about concrete is that you can never have too little or too much! Concrete slabs work perfectly as virtually indestructible counter top or your can create an entire concrete box!

Some may think concrete is a cold material to work with. However, concrete can easily be warmed up by adding a variety of tones and depth into the material. Mixing the material with wood is another way to add warmth to the look of concrete. Of course, the furnishings help dictate how the concrete is perceived in a space.

Here are just a few favorite concrete looks!
