We recognize concrete through its traditional uses—paved roads, sidewalks, patios, driveways, etc. However, concrete is incredibly versatile and can be used for much more. All you need is a creative mind and some outdoor space to follow your idea through.
Concrete has made waves in the interior design world. The trend began in 2018 and is still a very popular design component. The combination of different elements has also contributed to the concrete trend, elevating traditional home decor’s sophistication. For example, mixing hardwood and concrete as a dining table or seating arrangement or using concrete and copper metal to craft tableside lamps. You can not fit concrete into a single box. Concrete is dynamic and can be manipulated in many ways to suit your home design. Any concrete addition will transform your home by adding texture and character, inside and out.
Concrete Fire pits
Fire pits have brought warmth to many backyard spaces, allowing a comfortable outdoor experience. If your backyard lacks the design area, adding a fire pit is all you need to bring dimension to the outdoor space. Traditional fire pits that can be purchased at local hardware stores are plentiful and decorative. However, over time, they begin to rust and wear down. Therefore, needing a replacement each year. Concrete fire pits bring a sense of elegance to any yard space and do not need replacing. You can create any shape or design with the use of forms and your concrete pouring professionals.
Concrete patio tiers
Talk about elevation! Patio tiers are giving yard spaces a vacation resort vibe, serving as a design and functional element. If you have a sloped yard that could use a lift, patio tiers are the way to go. These concrete tiers can be used as steps or elongated stairways and platforms for elevating design features. Patio tiers can also be used as a riser for an outdoor kitchenette, dining, or entertaining space. Or you can go in the opposite direction and create a sunk-in living room. Thinking of adding some dimension, incorporate a concrete patio tier.
Concrete outdoor kitchens and bars
Outdoor living spaces are a continuing trend. Suppose your home is the go-to house for family gatherings and entertaining friends. In that case, you could definitely use a concrete outdoor kitchen set up. There is nothing more challenging than entertaining guests outdoors when all your food and drinks are inside. As a host, you want to be enjoying your time with your guests. Bring these elements together with an outdoor kitchen or bar that is durable and long-lasting. Cozy yet industrial, concrete has a plethora of personalities giving your outdoor kitchen a rustic feel.
Whether you are a culinary fanatic or gardening enthusiast, an outdoor concrete sink is perfect for a quick rinse instead of dragging outdoor debris indoors.

The possibilities are endless. As long as you have some creativity up your sleeve and a concrete pouring professional by your side, you can turn your home into an oasis.
