Concrete Floors, Both A Statement And A Functional Choice For Modern Homes

Even though they’re an element that’s specific to industrial interior designs, concrete floors are also a detail that can beautifully complement a modern home. Very popular in the kitchen, concrete floors can also be integrated in areas such as the living room or even the bedroom. The main concern is to find a way to balance out the coldness and neutrality it brings into the décor. There are lots of ways in which you can do that.

For example, in the kitchen you can combine the concrete flooring with wooden furniture. This way the coldness of the concrete will be balanced out by the warmth of the wood. The two textures also complement each other beautifully. Since concrete floors are used in interior décor as a statement and an important element in the overall image, it’s best not to cover them with carpets or rugs but to let them showcase their beauty and unique qualities.

Even though it might not seem like a prime option, you can also have concrete flooring in rooms such as the bedroom. A contemporary interior décor could be based on neutral shades and textures and you could create a black and grey décor or something brighter. If you decide to take the influence of concrete floors even further you can also integrate other strong industrial influences such as exposed brick walls or beams, metal details and so on.
