Concrete floors are cold

Chic trend: concrete floors

Even if a concrete floor may still be typical for a cellar or garage at first glance, the demand to use this versatile and easy-care flooring in any room is increasing. Colored concrete in particular is gaining importance in both traditional and modern home design and is cited by experts as an up-and-coming floor covering variant. Many architects are also picking up on this trend and designing log houses with exposed concrete panels instead of hiding them among other materials.

The entrance area

With a decorative concrete floor in the foyer, you will definitely create a good first impression. Such a concrete floor can even be personalized to the extent that it reflects the entire style of the house - from elegant to informal. Your concrete floor can be individually modified with stencil motifs, multi-colored patterns that imitate tiles, or unique saw-cut designs. In addition to the visual effect, concrete floors are ideal for entrance areas as they are easy to care for and can be heavily frequented.

Concrete in the bathroom

Concrete floors are not only practical and easy to clean - without joints in which mold can grow - but they also offer unlimited design options. They can be stencilled, reworked or colored to imitate marble floors, for example. You can also add built-in pigments to make the concrete look as white as porcelain or as black as granite.

Floor covering for the kitchen

Concrete can withstand all stresses that kitchen floors are exposed to in everyday life, including constant foot traffic, dropped cutlery or spilled food and beverages. Sealing makes the concrete floor completely waterproof and protects it from stains and moisture.

Concrete in the living room

Another advantage of concrete floors is that they can brighten a large living space better than other floor coverings thanks to their high light reflectivity. Light, polished concrete floors can therefore save energy, natural light is increased during the day and the need for artificial light is reduced at night. Concrete is one of the few materials that can be used for both interior and exterior panels, making concrete a good choice for patios that blend into the interior. The border between indoor and outdoor areas is blurred, the transition area can be designed seamlessly.
