Most often, it is outdoor projects that come to mind involving concrete. But did you know that concrete can work indoors in many creative and unusual ways? There are several benefits to using concrete compared to other materials in kitchen and bathroom remodels. Here are some ways that concrete will improve your indoor space.
Because concrete is poured, you can mold it into just about any shape you want. Concrete is great for kitchen counters. You won’t need to worry about trimming it to size as you would with granite or quartz, and it’s especially useful for fitting into unusual or awkward shapes. Also, it’s easy to mix concrete with any color you like. You don’t have to worry about your concrete features looking like they belong in a garage because concrete can be made to fit the most sophisticated style.
Concrete is just as durable indoors as it is for outdoor structures. For this reason, wherever you use it, you can know that it will last for a lifetime. You can add stylish flooring to your kitchen or bathroom that is waterproof, compared to hardwood, and it won’t warp or crack like linoleum or tile. And concrete can be made into interesting textures and finishes, from smooth to pitted, without compromising the integrity of the product.
Because concrete is so flexible, it gives you the opportunity to add unique features to your design. For a kitchen counter, you can put in a drainboard or cutting board, and even a waste receptacle to save you a trip to the trash can when cooking. And in bathrooms, you can add recessed outlets, inlays and more. Basically, the only limit is your imagination when it comes to remodeling your kitchen or bathroom with concrete.
