Just after water, concrete is the second-most-used substance in the world! And, it is also the most widely used building material. Famous for its incredible durability, concrete has been in used in construction and buildings since ancient times.
Therefore, it’s no surprise, that it is also a popular material when it comes to furniture. Concrete furniture is a great option for any season – they offer a classic, timeless look and there are many styles to choose from. They are long lasting, easy to clean and maintain so they can be enjoyed all year round.
Concrete furniture has stood the test of changing design trends – From subtle transformations to updates in design philosophy, it has found its place in every catalogue and made to the wish list of every home designer. Often you will find trendy concrete tables, planters, fireplaces and other decor featured in lifestyle magazines – making it a new and yet increasingly popular trend.
As we move into 2023, the modern concrete furniture trend continues to grow and evolve and is here to stay.
Let’s take a closer look at what you need to remember when planning to purchase a concrete furniture.
1. It doesn’t have to be boring.
When designing your space, your style preferences and list of needs should always come first. Concrete furniture brings personality and newness to what may otherwise seem an ordinary and plain interior space. It adds both style and function to any home, hospitality or commercial space including restaurants, offices, hotels and studios.
With its uniform smooth finish, natural hues and clean lines, concrete furniture looks good on its own as well as when paired with any style of furnishings to create beautifully harmonious looks – especially when looking at concrete tables, cabinets, and seating.
2. It doesn’t have to be grey.
Concrete furniture offers a big, beautiful world of colors! When it comes to choosing the color for your concrete furniture, there’s only one question that needs answering: What color will you choose?
From calming blues and neutrals, to arresting accent colors — you can customize your concrete furniture in every color you can think of. These combinations help in creating unique designs and concepts. Up cyclers and those with a knack for crafting may want to take things into their own hands and create designs that truly reflect your personality. From minimalism and natural textures to multi-functional design and bold colours, there are so much room for being creative.
3. It doesn’t have to be big and bulky.
Although all concrete furniture is made from cement, the type of cement and sealant used on the finished product determine its weight, durability and impact on the environment. Concrete furniture that is lighter in weight is more practical, as it’s easier to manoeuvre and reposition.
There are many ways to manage a concrete furniture’s weight. You can even explore mixing concrete with other materials like wood, steel, marble etc. to bring the weight down without having to sacrifice on the aesthetics. You can even opt for curved furniture design that provides uniqueness and softens the feel of your living spaces.
More so, if you are not just yet confident of buying concrete pieces for your house – You can set your intentions to incorporate smaller sized concrete pieces like chairs, loungers, side tables, benches and more. Such statement pieces are all about expressing your individuality and personality without having to give up bigger space.
4. It doesn’t have to be expensive.
Concrete furniture is way more affordable than many other collection and designer pieces and is becoming more widely available. Also, being durable and strong means your concrete furniture is going to look good for ages. A simple wipe over with water and a gentle soap and your piece looks like new! Such furniture rarely requires any repairing, which make it a cost-smart investment.
Another way to make the most out of your concrete furniture is to create smart and multi-functional concepts – as concrete furniture can support heavy items. A concrete coffee planter for example, can conveniently double as a bench, creating much-needed additional seating at absolutely no additional cost!
