Concrete and Cement have been long-standing materials that form the external foundations that we reside in. Our humble homes have slowly let this urban matter into our internal environment as some seek an aesthetic which harps back to an industrial style of living. Exposed brick work, unfinished workmanship all appeal to those who strike for a sleek, modern, and minimalist design.
Concrete/ Cement can be either introduced as an actual internal foundation through a porcelain tile within an open planned living environment, or as a contrast within a kitchen or bathroom. Increasingly, this material has been juxtaposed against wood creating a clash of surfaces within an interior.
