Why Concrete Is 2018's Next Big Thing in Interior Design (and How to Try the Trend)Concrete is shaping up to be 2018's next big design trend. So far 2018 has brought us quite a few polarizing design trends. We've already talked about how to harness the power of bold colors. but now. it's time to talk about a trend on the other end of the aesthetic spectrum.
