First discovered and used by the Romans, concrete is known for its durability, strength, and suitability as a building product. More recently, it has entered the home as a material in flooring and furnishings.

The unexpected and exceptional use of this material in the home has made it one of the most interesting developments in the realm of homeware trends.

BUT Why Design With Concrete?!

Despite concrete's reputation for being industrial and cold, the simplicity and organic feel of concrete are taking the interior design world by storm and currently trending up as a design feature in our homes. From smooth polished bar and table tops to poured concrete baths and pools, concrete is being redefined as edgy, timeless and cool.

Concrete’s adaptability means it can be cast, polished, ground and waxed, as well as being replicated in concrete-look and feel materials. It has a wide range of grey tones, from a greenish tinge (due to its “lime” component) to more blue-grey tones, making it suitable for many color schemes and home designs.

Pure Concrete Minimalism

At Concrete Unicorn, we honor the rawness of these sophisticated yet, understated materials to create simple, yet functional structures that energize our environments. 

The best part is, there’s no need to spend a fortune to get the look at home. You can add a few accessories to achieve the same effect in an understated way. Mix it up with some on-trend metallic to really bring the trend up to date.

Far from creating a cold, hard atmosphere, concrete can actually help to bring a warmer feel to your home. Incorporating concrete decor and style elements to your exterior space or home gives the perfect excuse to add timeless furnishings with more tactile textures.

From concrete furniture, and lighting to easier-to-incorporate into your home designs such as concrete planters there are lots of ways to bring the material into your interior design.
