Concrete is a cool composite material that has been taking over homes in the trendiest ways. The sleek industrial look is offering an aesthetic break from the norms, providing versatility and durability. The organic nature of concrete can easily be adapted into various interior styles and allows for endless finishes and textures. This low maintenance material is absolutely perfect to use outside as well as inside of your home!
Let’s take a look at three different ways you can design with concrete.
1. Poured Concrete
Poured concrete is one of the best ways to incorporate the trend into your home. The sustainable material is not only affordable but can also be personalized into any shape. Poured concrete floors are also a good thermal conductor for radiant floor heating and areas of high traffic. In addition, it can also be used as walls, counters, sinks, and so much more!

2. Concrete Tiles
Concrete tiles are another alternative way to be a part of this trend. Concrete tiles work well on floors, walls and as a fireplace surround. These tiles come in a wide range of colors and sizes providing endless possibilities for the creative mind.
3. Faux Concrete Finish
If you love the concrete trend, but are afraid to commit, you may want to look into a faux concrete finish. The look can easily be imitated through applying plaster on any wall. The best part about this finish is that it looks identical to real concrete and can easily be taken off at any moment.
