Concrete walls are an interior design trend that is around for a while now. It’s one of the best ways to create a unique, industrial feel in your home. If you’re a fan of concrete walls that you see on Pinterest and Instagram, we dare you to pull off this look. It’s modern. It’s bold. It’s gorgeous.
The perfect backdrop for minimalism
Here, the designers used concrete walls to highlight the television and the fireplace. The walls framed them and locked them in place — in a sleek and stylish way. Also, the concrete walls are the focal point in this minimalist room. The walls draw the eyes to the entertainment centre, which is the star of the living room.
Create dramatic interiors
To complete the look, the designers painted the other walls with grey paint. They chose a shade that’s lighter than concrete. In the end, the grey walls completed the theme of the living room. The painted walls made the interiors more dramatic.
The varying wall textures added visual interest. There’s a balance of smooth and rough texture in this room, which we like. When it comes to interior design, the more, the merrier. Do not be afraid to mix and match materials and textures until you got your desired look.
Plush and comfortable
Concrete is hard. Soft materials and textures work well with it. Here, we see floor to ceiling curtains which soften the interiors a bit. The flowy fabrics don’t make the room stark and boring.
The overstuffed sofa looks soft and comfortable too. What a nice addition to this grey room. It makes the room homely.
Proper lighting is key
Lighting is critical when your interior design is a little dark. The doors and windows provided enough daylight to keep the living room from looking like a cave.
Another notable feature is the use of modern floor lamps with a chrome finish. It’s a nice accent in this modern grey living room.
