These 10 spaces are beautiful examples of designing with concrete flooring.

A gray concrete floor with bright white walls creates a great neutral foundation that can pair with any color. I love how Heather Bullard creates contrast in her entry way with a black dutch door and then warms it up with a pink and orange kilim rug and round wood mirror.

Concrete is versatile. It looks inviting in both modern and traditional kitchens. It pairs perfectly with marble and natural or painted wood cabinetry and gives you an excuse to buy a vintage rug or two to add interest.

This kitchen is a good example of how concrete flooring can still bring warmth to a space. I love the pairing of the sandy tones in concrete with the beautiful wood ceiling in this kitchen.

Two gorgeous examples of concrete flooring in bathrooms. I love the large mirror and  black and white palette of the first bathroom. The second bath has more traditional elements, but the concrete flooring gives it an updated look with modern simplicity. Something to note: these floors are not only pretty but practical and easy to clean. A nice option for a bathroom space.
