Here we go again – a post devoted to yet another ceiling treatment – the concrete ceiling. If you haven’t had the chance to check out my earlier ceiling posts you can check them out here, here and here.
I have shared a bit of love with you guys on concrete before. I find concrete to be an amazing textural addition to any home – if it be a wall, flooring, details and now we are here where I will share concrete ceilings with you.
A concrete ceiling has its benefits – besides being esthetically appealing of course – it is quite sound-proof, has great longevity to it and is basically maintenance free. The harsh reality though – is that it is quite the process getting it done and it is also quite a pricey process… So this is one of those – if you buy a great apartment in a great remodeled industrial building – GOOD FOR YOU!
To me the most difficult part of living with a concrete ceiling is not letting the space get to “cold”. It is important to combine a concrete ceiling with some warmer elements – just to keep the atmosphere homely.
Here is some of my favorite concrete ceiling inspiration – hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Put some concrete in your home. . . Why not? I know it was just yesterday that I said I’d do a post on the beauty of concrete homes – in the future – well it became the near future. I love the look of concrete in homes – but there is much more than just good looks to concrete. Concrete has good insulation properties – it might feel a bit cold when you touch it – but it keeps the heath in. . . Concrete is a material that will last longer than you – and you do not have to fear your building burning to the ground – concrete does not burn. Well for me it is mostly about the beauty. Here is my collection of concrete goodness.
