Concreate Flooring: The Easy Way to a Classic, Minimalist Aesthetic
Over the last five years, homeowners in the UK have increased the amount of money invested in flooring upgrades and renovations. This is, at least in part, because high quality floors offer a huge amount of value and over long periods too. Take the growing popularity of Concreate floors in rural areas like Sunningdale, Longcross, and Ascot.
These exquisite products may be non-traditional, but they are great for creating a crisp, contemporary aesthetic. While concrete has a reputation for being tougher than it is beautiful, it is remarkably versatile, and you’ll be amazed at the range of colours, textures, and designs available. In fact, just forget everything you thought you knew about this material.
Concrete floors are set to be huge in 2018 and, when you see what’s possible, you’ll understand why. Keep reading for some serious style inspiration.
One big benefit of Concreate floors is that they come in easy to fit panels. This allows for maximum flexibility when designing a bespoke look. For instance, you could opt for a seamless, classic arrangement with few surprises or lay the panels out in a unique pattern.
The tongue and groove locking system means that they can be placed, lifted, and replaced as many times as you like until you get the perfect design. From herringbone to geometric sequences; if you’ve got the flare for it, do something really special with your floor.
Spaces within Spaces
Speaking of bespoke arrangements; larger rooms tend to suit patterned floors rather well. You can actually hold big, open plan spaces together by creating contrasting designs with just the one flooring material. Just use the panels to demarcate spaces within spaces.
For example, in a big loft apartment, create a ‘room’ by marking out a border with different coloured panels. This technique is a great way to add intimacy to open plan lounges and entertaining areas. With Concreate flooring, it’s as easy as putting together a jigsaw.
Traditional poured and polished concrete can look very beautiful, but it presents some challenges. You’ll find that, when you move to connect the material up with other rooms and other flooring types, it’s hard to get a smooth transition. This is especially true with wood.
Fortunately, you can pick up high quality Concreate panels in Sunningdale, and they come in all kinds of different shades. In fact, the manufacturer has created a special range of colours which are designed to match common wood shades, so that transitions are always flawless.
Suitable for Upstairs Too
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about Concreate flooring is that, for the first time, the material has been manufactured in a way which is suitable for second floor use. For a long while, concrete was completely incompatible with upper levels, because of its heavy weight.
Concreate, however, is not poured, so it doesn’t have the same heft. It can be safely installed in bedrooms, bathrooms, and attic conversions. It’s actually a great choice for bathrooms, as it is surprisingly tactile. It is rarely cold because the material actively absorbs and stores heat.
If all of that weren’t enough, know that Concreate floor panels are suitable for use on walls, stairs, kitchen backsplashes, shelves, and anywhere else that needs a contemporary style boost. The fact that they’re so lightweight means that they’re extremely versatile.
So, don’t limit your imagination. If you want to get some more style ideas or discuss design possibilities with a flooring consultant, just find a local vendor in Sunningdale. They’ll be happy to answer your questions and let you know how to turn big plans into real flooring projects.
