More than floors

Edgy, industrial and endlessly versatile, concrete is a cost-effective trend taking over interiors. From polished concrete floors to tiles, sinks and everything in-between, concrete is a tactile and contemporary material that works within any home. As an added bonus – it’s also incredibly robust. Searches for concrete home items are on the rise according to Pinterest, and these are the top trends that are taking over.

Concrete flooring

Concrete flooring is hard-wearing, chic and adapts to many interior styles, and can be a sustainable material to use in housing. Concrete flooring is easy to care for, requiring no more than a mop with soapy water.
