Concrete is no longer reserved to the garage and outdoor walkways. From indoor flooring and countertops to accents like planters and tape dispensers, this versatile material is popping up more and more in the average American home. Here are some ingenious ways to incorporate this modern trend in your next bathroom update.
Perhaps the most popular of all concrete bathroom features, concrete countertops are all the rage nowadays. While some opt for a smooth version of the classic concrete look, even more are customizing their countertop color and finish to achieve a look that is highly comparable to quartz, marble, or granite. Concrete countertops can be given a matte or shiny finish as well. Opting for concrete also means that you can create a seamless look with a sink of the very same material.
Perhaps instead of an all-concrete update to your bathroom vanity, you’d prefer a modern bowl-style sink, resting on top of a flat surface of a different material.
Concrete floors are just as versatile as concrete countertops—they can be painted, stained, or etched. Acid staining can give drab, gray concrete flooring a vibrant and dimensional look, with both matte and freshly polished-looking finishes available. Epoxy coating also offers a variety of color and pattern options while adding an extra measure of protection for your flooring. Additionally, concrete can be heated to create a warm and welcoming floor
Finished, customized concrete lining your shower walls can be a stunning addition to your bathroom. One bonus of opting for concrete for your shower walls is that it can be matched to concrete flooring for a seamless look. Plus, the potential elimination of grout means that upkeep couldn’t be easier.
Did you know that concrete tubs are an option for your bathroom? A concrete tub is an especially great option for those looking to give their bathroom an especially modern-looking update. Many of the concrete tubs of today are given a straight-edge, box-like finish, but they can also be crafted to have rounded edges. One more advantage here is that a concrete tub can be customized to fit any bathroom space.
If you’re not quite ready to make the jump to a full-on bathroom update, concrete bathroom accents are another great option. Many modern home goods stores offer trays, toothbrush holders, cups, tissue box covers, and more—all made from the versatile material.
