It almost goes without saying that concrete and industrial design go hand in hand. You don't have to work hard to conjure images of former industrial warehouses turned sun-drenched lofts or reclaimed bits of machinery that have been transformed into chic accent pieces.If you're going to go this route. we suggest going big to really drive home your design inspiration.
Wood slatted room dividers create a small library or sitting room in an open loft.Adding uplights and some greenery to a slatted room dividing wall create a zen vibe.The wood slats of this contemporary home were stained in a rich black tone. Each slat rotates to close off the space completely or open it up as shown.This room divider hides the stairwell.
Concrete gives the room instant texture.It adds texture.We've talked before about how texture can help bring untold amounts of visual interest to your space. Remember. in an interior design context. texture refers to the way an element looks like it feels. Everyone knows the feeling of running their hands over concrete. so including one of these items in your design fosters an instant connection with the viewer.
Concrete floors are a natural choice. They work particularly well in open concept applications and. when compared to many of the rustic-finished woods that also fit this aesthetic. they're an affordable alternative.If concrete floors aren't your thing. concrete walls are also a great way to make a style statement. However. you'll probably want to stick to a singular accent wall.
