Concrete holds the signature of modernist design and intent – at once bold, impactful and masculine, and yet fluid enough to flirt with the sensuous and the feminine. Concrete surfaces and elements therefore introduce a unique aesthetic into a space that is guaranteed to capture the eye and invigorate the imagination.
Concrete fireplaces are a case in point – not only do these functionally anchor a living room or space; their stunning finishes, forms and effects create visual delight in the very heart of your home.
These fireplaces are efficient and a breeze to maintain and manage, thanks to the hardiness of the material at hand. Yet at the same time, they make for some elegant visual additions to the space, morphing and adapting to the layout, décor and designs at play. The formwork allows you to even scale your design to add movement to the space, or gently melt into the backdrop. Best of all the material works just as well indoors as it does outdoors, letting your creative instincts and ideas run wild.
Therefore whether you dwell in the traditional or have a penchant for modern minimalism, concrete fireplaces are sure to beautifully accompany and complement – all you have to do is give it a shot.
