Every room in your home needs a focal point. Since concrete is such a heavy material to work with. when it's used in design. it lends a ton of visual weight to the room. This means it will instantly draw the eye and ground the space. All told. these factors make concrete an excellent choice to become a focal point in your home.

While the room features a consistent color palette. the same number of chairs on either side of the coffee table. and even a symmetrical layout. it was probably the fireplace that caught your eye first — and held it.

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.
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.
