Polished concrete is an extremely versatile material. It is rapidly becoming the material of choice for interior designers and homeowners alike. Polished concrete has a timeless yet on-trend aesthetic, adding a touch of contemporary elegance to all settings. Combine it with a minimal style and modern accessories, and you can create a stylish look. Polished concrete brings a subtle but sophisticated edge to home interiors, enhancing the depth of a room.
We’re going to explain why so many people choose and fall in love with polished concrete:
Polished concrete won’t be the first thing that comes to your mind when you want to add lightness to a room. However, this material actually adds a light, airy, ethereal sense to a space. The smooth surface creates a feeling of openness – it can work very well to make a zen, spa-like atmosphere.
Glossy concrete allows light to bounce around a room, making them appear larger. You can use this in smaller kitchens, bathrooms, and dining rooms to make them feel more spacious.
Polished concrete is available in a wide range of finishes and colouring. It is a beautiful addition to pretty much every environment – from full concrete flooring to small pieces of decor. It can be incorporated into most design aesthetics too.
Polished concrete can be stained to give it decorate veins or a marbling effect, and can even come in bright colours. You could choose to partially paint the concrete to create a striking contrast with the natural colour and texture. You can even use polished concrete as part of the furnishings in the home, bespoke pieces which add a real wow factor.
Polished concrete is a perfect choice if you want a statement stylish piece. You can integrate the material into your home in both small or large doses. For example, a completely exposed concrete wall will add a bold punch of texture and a focus for the eye. You can combine this with neutral tones and other natural textures to balance it out. Soft furnishings with simple patterns and pots of foliage can also be used to ease the brutalist nature of concrete.
Polished concrete is so easy to have in your interiors as it is very durable, hypoallergenic, and requires little maintenance. The seamless and waterproof properties of polished concrete mean it lends itself very well to bathrooms and other wet settings – it has a resistance to mould and mildew too. It is a fantastic long term solution due to being able to adapt to different styles as they change.
