Concrete fits in to everyone’s decorating scheme… outside, on the patio. Right?
Wrong! Concrete has steadily moved its way indoors. While it’s most often found in industrial decor, it works with virtually all styles and colors.
It’s migrated to kitchen counters, touted for its heavy-duty properties and indestructible properties. And not as ugly gray cinderblock tops, but frequently in custom colors or mixed with recycled glass for an eye-poppingly unique surface.
Besides for counters, concrete can also be used on ceilings, floors, backsplashes, and even sinks.
