Cool Home Style

As a lover of hardwood floors, I have to admit I'm starting to fall for concrete flooring. It's the ultimate clean and modern. And if you're like me and you love all-white spaces, concrete floors are a fun way to maintain that aesthetic without actually having white floors. 

Since concrete is such a hard surface, it's important to include lots of soft materials with home textiles, such as drapery, throws and accent pillows. You can even add textiles through lighting, by using such things as burlap lamp shades.

This loft style home does a great job at not only including textiles, but mixing lots of warm and fun patterns. This is one of the benefits to large open spaces.

Also, the wood beams and cabinets are a beautiful contrast to the concrete floors.

The narrow dimensions of this modern kitchen design benefits from the concrete floors. Tile or wood might make this kitchen look a little smaller. Also, those high ceilings are ideal for modern pendant lighting!

This modern bathroom is perfectly simple, with just enough texture to add interest. The basket pairs wonderfully with the throw, both of them warming up the cool concrete floors.

Here's a resource for how to DIY stained concrete floors.
