20 Beautiful Living Rooms Incorporating Concrete

It’s the room you feel the most comfortable in and you want it to look warm and cozy, appealing and stylish, and most of all, be as functional as it is comfortable. It’s the living room. The living room is the hub of the home, really. It’s where all the gatherings take place, with both family and friends. With as much attention as it gets, making sure it is designed to function efficiently for your type of lifestyle is important. Of course, beauty is way up there in importance, too, which is why using concrete in your living room design can be a great option. Concrete isn’t just for using in construction and in outdoor elements, like sidewalks and slabs, it is now a part of the decorating scheme that is very versatile in where it can be used. Depending on the type of look you are going for, concrete may work well in a number of places in your living room. Here are some ideas on what you can do with concrete in your living room.

Floors

Your floors take a lot of abuse. They get the brunt of foot traffic, pets, kids, dropped items and possibly even food, if you do any entertaining in the room. Your floors should be durable, easy to maintain, and of course you want them to stand out and be eye-catching, especially since they are one of the most noticeable elements of the room. Concrete on your living room floor may sound like it would appear to “construction-zone,” however, they are actually quite warm, and you can do a lot with them, such as gloss them, stamp them, even have color added to them, to fit your color scheme and design. An area rug or two in the room, and you have an updated, functional, and beautiful floor type that will last years.

Walls

Your walls are bare and boring if you ignore them and leave them drab and blank. Sometimes, even with color splashed across them, regular sheetrock walls just don’t give your living room the spark or wow factor you want for your living room. A concrete wall can really add an interesting element to the room and give it warmth, character, and a look that you won’t find in most other living rooms. If you have a stand alone wall in the room that really needs something extra special, why not turn it into a focal point by concreting the wall. Concrete walls can be done in a number of ways to add your sense of style and taste. Beautiful glossy concrete blocks give your living room an elegant touch, or concrete with texture is another option for a wall that just doesn’t pop on its own.

Concrete fireplace

The fireplace has and always will be a major focal point for a living room. How big of a focal point you want it to be is up to you. But if you want your fireplace to really stand out, why not concrete, not only the fireplace, but continue the concrete on the entire to wall to make it a seamless, and uniquely designed one that will get all the attention it deserves?

Other ideas

If you want to slowly introduce concrete into your living room without having too much so that you feel overwhelmed, try incorporating smaller amounts in smaller items, such as a concrete coffee table, a couple concrete statues, or other concrete decorative items. Once you adjust to the look, you can upgrade to a larger area, such as the floor or a wall.
