Concrete Home Remodeling Ideas for Outdoors
Take a look at your outdoors setting. Does it need a facelift?
Whichever exterior style you want to achieve – be it modern or classical – concrete is an excellent material for the redesign. Because of its versatility, concrete is our number one material that we recommend for exterior redecoration.
You can use it for patios, paving, fire pits, and attractive outdoor counters.
Best of all, your exterior will not look greyish and dull. Concrete can be stained and textured to look exquisite and unique. Additionally, it is so much easier to mould concrete into various shapes compared to any other material.
Indoors concrete remodeling ideas
Concrete remodeling can transform your kitchen into something you would be immensely proud of.
Using concrete to redesign kitchen countertops is cost-effective. The concrete is made in just one pour, meaning that you’ll not have to worry about water leaking into joints and cracks.
With concrete, you can opt to have a unique shape for your countertop, not the usual rectangular shape.Concrete can be moulded into your desired shape, giving your kitchen a truly unique look.
A concrete kitchen sink?
Yes! Especially if you decide to change the countertop’s surface with concrete too.
The countertop and the sink can actually be made into one continuous unit complete with exceptional additions such as a built-in soap dish and trivet.
A concrete kitchen sink is low maintenance and has extended durability. And you can also design it to blend with your existing kitchen décor.
I am sure you don’t want your fireplace to look like a slab of concrete. But here’s the good news. You can use concrete remodeling on your mantle and get it stamped to look like bricks or antique stones.
Other than looking attractive, concrete absorbs and retains heat, which it then releases ever so slowly. It will keep your house warm, long after the fire has died.
Concrete is not just for the pathway leading to your foyer. It can also be a trendy choice for your rooms’ flooring.
When used for flooring, you can choose different finishes – different colours, aggregates, stains, and even textured surfaces. You can also have concrete floors buffed into a glassy look.
Concrete floors will delight you. They are cost-efficient, easy to clean and more durable. You will only need the occasional dusting and wet mop to clean the floors and they are resistant to scratches and scuffs.
Additionally, since concrete absorbs and retains heat, you will be drastically saving on your energy bills.
3. Concrete Bathroom Ideas
Concrete doesn’t have to be grey. If you are thinking of using it in your next bathroom project, you are on the right track.
If you yearn for a bathtub that looks truly unique, natural, personalised and with a lot of character, a concrete bathtub is the way to go.
One advantage of using concrete in remodeling your bathtub is that you can make it as small or as big as you want. You can also have it personalised into whatever colour, texture and shape, which cannot be done with pre-made factory bathtubs.
A concrete bathtub is also easier to maintain. When installed properly, it will not only be waterproof but also stain-resistant.
Concrete shower walls and flooring
Your conventional bathroom wall and floor is plagued by a number of challenges on a daily basis. These challenges range from humidity changes, water concerns and staining agents that spill and splatter.
However, with concrete bathroom floor and walls, your bathroom can withstand the toughest handling and environmental hazards.
And with new concrete staining tactics, you can use concrete not only as a utilitarian wall and flooring alternative, but also as a beautiful part of your interior design.
Going Green With Concrete
A lot of homeowners are turning to concrete remodeling not just because it is chic and unique, but also because it is an environment-friendly remodeling material. Concrete is often manufactured locally, which means it takes less energy to have it delivered to your place.
The sand and rock that go into manufacturing concrete are renewable resources. Further, its extended life means that you need to remodel again for decades. And when you get tired from all the concrete cosiness, the concrete can easily be ground and reused – for instance on a sidewalk.
In addition, concrete is often manufactured locally. This means it would need less energy to deliver it to your place.
