His Majesty Concrete in the interior

Natural materials such as wood, stone, metal in the modern interior will not surprise anyone – designers implement them harmoniously and with a high sense of style. But the revolution is coming – gross, industrial interiors are gaining more and more popularity – either by virtue of their simplicity, or by virtue of low cost, and they need a slightly different material that is more remote from nature. This is undoubtedly concrete – artificial stone. It was he who made a construction coup in the 19th century, and now finds its application in interiors, decorating floors, walls and ceiling. Let’s try to figure out what is the growing popularity of the interior “from concrete”.

As we have already noted above, the cost of repairing the premises where the walls remain with the rough (or improved black) decoration, you just need to buy furniture, household appliances, interior items and you can move. Some do not even lay the flooring – why? The maximum that can be done is to lay a carpet with a long pile of a sofa to give a cold interior a little warmth and tenderness. All. There is no wall decoration, no ceiling decoration, no floor coverings. Only in private houses on the attic floors can a rafter system diversify such a brutal approach. or you yourself in your apartment can come up with something if you decide to invest a little. You say – what to do with communications, wiring, and other engineering networks?   But we will answer – no way, now it is fashionable in such interiors from concrete to leave all communications in sight: switches, sockets, communication networks – all this is now being carried out under the ceiling in corrugated tubes. But here it is worth noting the fact that nothing should sag anywhere, communications should go even, strict geometry and high -quality fasteners to the base.

Concrete in the interior can be used with other “brutal” materials, such as steel. Of course, not everyone will like this interior, and some design studio, office or creative workshop will be more suitable. But this option has the right to be, of course. The most common version of such a combination is a concrete floor and walls, a ceiling made of steel and corrugated board or galvanized metal.
