Concrete Living In An Urban World

  • Comments 1

Using concrete in your home will not only add aesthetic interest, but will also slash heating and cooling costs plus help preserve the environment. Concrete homes are durable, cost effective and super stylish.

This concrete living room above balances both colors and materials well. The concrete provides a clean slate for the modern furniture and stylish home decor accessories, allowing this framed art to really pop. The sofa, area rug and pillow poufs add beautiful soft textures to this hard surfaced interior.

In the same way that concrete allows the interior decor to stand out, it also helps the surrounding landscape seem even brighter and more bountiful. While allowing the environment to be noticed, it is simultaneously helping to preserve it by allowing a more efficient lifestyle.

Concrete home with colorful furnishings

The design of this eclectically modern living room uses the surrounding concrete materials to its advantage, highlighting all of the gorgeous texture and color. The soft eggplant upholstery and jewel tone area rug stand out beautifully against the soft gray floor and walls. Handsome brass floor lamps, like the one seen above, provide another smart contrast while the lamp shade and coffee table add a pop of white.

There's no reason the cool tones of steel, concrete and glass can't be warmed up on the exterior just like we've seen it done on the inside. This bright orange door adds both personality and warmth to this impressive modern home.

Concrete walls with wood furniture

One of the major benefits to concrete homes is the ability to furnish with lots of wood. In a typical hardwood-floor home, you might want to monitor how many furniture pieces or accessories are made out of wood, but not here. Go ahead and express your love for this natural material in all color tones and sizes.

Whether you're a modernist at heart or you just enjoy clean design, concrete is a gorgeous material to use both inside and out.

  • Very nice. The first two living rooms look lived in and not over designed.
