For many, the thought of concrete is cold, dull, and very industrial. However, over the last couple of years we have seen concrete emerging more and more in household spaces such as kitchens and bathrooms, not only in very rustic spaces but in our modern kitchens as well. Where granite was the preference for many years, specifically in the 1900’s, various stones combined with concrete are now taking away from the busyness of granite countertops and steering us towards a much cleaner and character-filled space.
Where concrete was once lifeless and dull, today we see it come to life as we customise the density, accentuate levels and pair it against sophisticated and contrasting stone tops. By using concrete accents in our kitchens, we bring personality to what would be an otherwise tedious space and when you consider the durability and dramatic effect that concrete brings to a modern kitchen, it’s no wonder this is a fast growing trend in the world of kitchens today.
