Some concrete ideas for your interior

Concrete is the second-most-used substance in the world (after water) and the most favoured building material – here we celebrate its indoor application

1. Solid footing

Black steel framing, pitched panelled ceilings and polished concrete floors are offset by sage green walls in this bold, v-shaped, two-pavilion home.

2. Bringing the outdoors in

Polished concrete render cladding on this home continues indoors as a rugged, textural wall finish – further contributing to the home's strong material character.

3. Enduring menu

Industrial chic is the name of the game with this rugged kitchen, featuring a cinder block wall to divide the scullery and kitchen and a concrete aggregate floor under foot.

4. In keeping

Retaining existing brick walls and internalising them in the addition gives this renovation a rustic/rugged aspect – a polished concrete slab with bluestone aggregate provides the perfect no-nonsense flooring complement.

5. Quiet character

This media room forms part of a home that heads underground to cool architectural spaces – concrete walls create a vibe and also dampen sound, so jet blasts from latest Top Gun movie aren't heard right through the home.

6. Bold ablutions

Custom black concrete forms the contemporary vanity and tub in this clean-lined, surprising bathroom – the floor is in tune, too, finished in Salt and Pepper aggregate concrete.

7. Strong divide

Concrete slabs split the formal living and functional areas of this contemporary residence – fittingly, the entry to the home is approached via external floating concrete steps.

8. At one with the setting

Rugged materials were considered appropriate for this home set into a mountain slope – board-formed concrete walls, white oak shiplap cladding, and painted galvanised steel doors and windows all feature.

9. Hard-wearing but also warm

Contrasting and striking low maintenance materials were requested for the make-up of this home – as a bonus, the resulting concrete floor also facilitates an air to water in-slab heating system.
