According to Houzz, concrete has always been a popular material choice, but it has fallen in marble’s and granite’s shadows. This will no longer be the case in 2018, Concrete accents are one of the home trends to watch. Houzz predicts that concrete won’t just be used for floors and countertops, but for furniture, decorative accessories, and wall coverings as well.
Wall covering is one of the easiest ways to transform a room, spice up a dull space or create a focal point. Without heavy lifting, you can embrace the concrete trend with concrete looking wall covering, which consists of a collection of high-resolution authentic concrete pictures, coming together to create one large image. By being actual images of real concrete, the design gives a visual illusion that tricks the eye into thinking it is a solid concrete wall rather than just a decorative wall covering.
Since not all actual concrete is made the same or looks alike, there are different concrete wall covering designs. Below are four examples of different concrete wall design options.
If you don’t have an accent wall that will work for a wall covering or if you’re looking for a subtler splash of concrete, bedding and pillows are a great alternative. The look of concrete’s interesting texture and pattern will enhance your space and still bring the wow factor, even when it’s in a small dose!
Here are some examples of decorative bedding and pillows you can tie into your space.
