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.
There's actually a psychological basis for why this occurs. It has to do with the way our brains process information. They aim to pick up on as many patterns and repetitions as possible. so the mirroring effect of symmetrical design makes those rooms very easy to figure out. In asymmetrical spaces. the patterns are less immediately obvious. so it takes our brains a bit longer to process them and ultimately makes them more interesting.
Take the picture above as an example. The fireplace has such a commanding presence that your eye is pulled to it. If you're willing to go this bold. an architectural element definitely fits the bill. It's also possible to go more subtle. A concrete island instantly becomes a conversation piece in your kitchen and a coffee table easily grounds a seating area.
but the threat of losing a security deposit can be enough to quash that aspiration for many.
