Get The Look: Chic Concrete

Karndean Designflooring

Designers, manufacturers and homeowners have embraced the minimal, stripped-down appeal of interior spaces designed with concrete and concrete-inspired elements.

As grey tones continue to lead the pack as one of the most influential color palettes in the world of design, concrete (real or faux), is playing a strong role in home decor. Concrete elements bring a stylish, industrial style into modern living spaces. Concrete sinks, counter tops and floors paired with bright white and beige tones help to soften the industrial elements whilst keeping a fresh and modern look. You can also use natural or reclaimed wood pieces and metallics to give your decor a seamless finish.

Add impact to a concrete gray palette with your favorite accent colour. We love Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year Greenery. “This is the color of hopefulness, and of our connection to nature. It speaks to what we call the ‘re’ words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute’s executive director. Incorporate dishware, fabrics or accessories in this vibrant leafy hue to instantly brighten up your kitchen’s decor.

We know what you’re thinking... ‘Concrete floors can't be comfortable underfoot?!’ We understand, and we don't want you to have to choose between style and comfort. You can get the look of real concrete with Colorado, from our Karndean LooseLay range. What's more, Karndean flooring is much warmer and softer underfoot, whilst maintaining all the beautiful visual benefits of the real thing.
