4 Creative Ways to use Concrete in your Home

We all know the common ways to use concrete in your home: driveways, sidewalks, floors . . . but what about if you want to stand out? Here are some creative uses for concrete in your home so you can make a statement and impress your guests!

Concrete sink

While concrete sinks are not for the perfectionists-at-heart, they can make a very unique statement for your home. Put one of these sinks in your bathroom and impress your guests with the perfectly imperfect look. This is perfect for a rustic, industrial look.

Concrete countertop

Concrete countertops are another way to merge rustic and industrial in your home. By using a concrete countertop, you can create a unique surface, especially in your kitchen area. While we don’t recommend using concrete sinks in your kitchen, we do love the look of concrete countertops! The only thing you have to be aware of is their ability to crack. Luckily, these cracks are easy to repair.

Concrete fireplace

Warm your living space with a concrete fireplace. The cool exterior of the concrete contrasts beautifully with the fireplace’s warmth, giving a perfect glow to any room. Since they tend to be built in, concrete fireplaces add a seamless feature that can be easily customized. These fireplaces balance your home and bring industrial charm to the room.

Concrete accessories

We can’t emphasize how important it is to accessorize in your home! Concrete is the perfect material to add a statement piece to your home. Whether it’s with an accent wall fully made of concrete, or custom concrete coat hooks, you can’t go wrong with adding a touch of rustic industrial through concrete accent features.
