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.
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.
All it takes to pull this look off is a little imagination. Start by going around your apartment and looking into the various possibilities available to you. Consider existing shelving. tabletops or other surfaces that could use a makeover. These days. many minimalist looks even include larger artworks that have been propped up on the floor as a style statement.
If simply displaying art is not to your taste. you may not have to forgo hanging entirely. Here. it's all about getting creative with the way they're hung. Take the picture above as an example. With a little planning. a variety of household items can be transformed into part of a DIY gallery.
