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.
Remember wall decals? They aren't just for kids' rooms anymore. Today's wall decals — rebranded under the term removable wallpaper — are a great way to make a big design statement for relatively little effort and upfront cost. With a press-and-stick installation method. plus the ability to peel the design off and throw it away at the end of your lease. this method should be a go-to pick for any renter.
When working with removable wallpaper. the first step is to gauge the quality of your walls. Look for ones that aren't heavily textured or have lots of loose plaster. Smoother walls reduce your chances of having air pockets under the design on installation and ending up with a bubbly look.With the walls prepped. the possibilities are endless.
When you're looking to highlight texture. the key is to create contrast. In particular. concrete does best when it's juxtaposed against something natural. such as wood. You should also pay attention to the colors in your concrete and be sure to choose contrasting shades for the rest of the room.Looking for a focal point. Problem solved? It's an instant focal point
