Indoor Uses for Concrete

Concrete is a spectacularly durable and diverse material for use in the home. Best of all–it’s affordable. Homeowners have lots of options when it comes to using concrete in the home. Fire resistant and suited to virtually any size space, concrete can be stamped, embossed, and even dyed to enhance your interior’s decorative style. Consider using concrete in your home.

Floors

When it comes to practicality, concrete flooring is hard to beat. If you’re searching for a durable, easy-to-care-for floor, concrete is a first-rate material option. Concrete floors are scuff resistant and scratch proof. What’s ideal about concrete is that it’s easy to transform into a myriad of different styles. It can be dyed or enhanced by different textures and patterns. You can even embed various materials into the concrete to create a signature look. In fact, talk to us about what you have in mind and we can help. To keep your concrete flooring clean, just mop and dust as needed.

Kitchen Countertops

Concrete countertops are another durable way to use concrete in your home. Because the concrete countertop is made with a single pour, there are no seams or joints to worry about. Moreover, if you don’t want the typical rectangular design, no problem. You can create a custom shape using a mold and pouring the concrete into it. Additionally, you can even include built-ins in your custom countertop. Include a trivet or soap dish in your countertop design.

Fireplace Hearth

With a concrete hearth, you can achieve the look of brick or stone with affordable concrete. But affordability isn’t concrete’s only benefit. Concrete retains heat well. Then, it releases that heat slowly into the surrounding space. So, even when the flames of your fire have died out, the concrete’s released heat continues to keep your room warm. If stamping the concrete to resemble brick isn’t to your taste, you can dye the concrete or emboss it to create a more contemporary look for your fireplace.

Shower Walls and Tub

When you install a concrete shower, you can create a seamless stall that’s waterproof and durable. With no grout, maintaining cleanliness is a breeze. You can also install a concrete tub in custom sizing. If you’re eager to install a large tub, be sure to contact us so we make sure your flooring is capable of supporting your tub. In some cases, these tubs can also be outfitted with embedded heat coils.

Furnishings

You can even enhance your home with concrete furnishings. Create uniquely shaped furniture complemented by any style cushioning you prefer. Create window seats, benches, chaises, or even chairs using pour concrete. Again, you can stain or dye the concrete in any hue or stamp it with patterns. Opt for decorative embossing or vibrant shades to transform your setting.
