The popularity of concrete in interior design is nothing new – we’ve seen this oft-used material in abundance since the industrial style took the world by storm in recent years. But it doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on this hot interior trend just because you are not a fan of industrial interior design. Here are some ways of incorporating small concrete touches to give your home that extra edge.
#1 Concrete lightings are a great way to introduce the material into your home subtly. These beautiful light fixtures would fit right into any minimalist or modern style homes. (Picture credit: Clippings)
#2 Concrete stools are practical options for your gardens and balconies given how durable they are. But that doesn’t mean they can’t be used in doors as well. Geometric concrete stools (left, picture credit: Plastolux) are great to introduce some visual interest in your overall décor. Alternatively, layered concrete stools (right, picture credit: M-Material) can introduce a surprising touch of poetry that is uncharacteristic of concrete – and that’s what makes them so interesting.
