Nowadays, colored concrete is widely used in interior spaces. This material not only offers durability and energy efficiency but also becomes a trendsetter in 2023 with its super stylish appearance. Colored concrete with a rough texture and low saturation gives a warm feel, bringing an original industrial atmosphere to any space.

This Victorian residence in Hackney integrates indoor and outdoor spaces with colored concrete walls. The soft pink concrete creates a distinct contrast and unexpected shadows with the smooth glass extension. Designer Tom Gresford notes that colored concrete has rich structural beauty, enhancing space in unexpected ways. The texture and traces on the surface add charm and a sense of history to the building, balancing physical hardness with visual softness.

In the bathroom, the designer opts for green concrete covering the lower half of the walls and casting onto custom-made bathtub, basin, and bench in 3D. Paired with vintage gold brass vessels, it showcases the limitless possibilities of colored concrete in design.

No.5 Bold Blue and Yellow Combination

Blue and Yellow Combination

As owners, Simon and Carolyn found monochromatic, low-saturation concrete too plain. Due to their love for pop art, playful sculptures, bold colors, and furniture design, they opted for a more vibrant combination of colored concrete, creating a kitchen extension with personality and energy. The uniquely designed space appears as a 3D sculpture from different angles, sometimes resembling 2D graphics, just like the owners themselves—truly one of a kind.

Colored Concrete Product Design

The original sophistication of colored concrete not only attracts interior designers but also captivates product designers. Despite its challenges in weight and density for product design, we still witness many surprising designs. Germany's Von Morgen Studio excels in utilizing concrete, elevating this raw material to an elegant and refined level. Architect Jerome Byron, based in the United States, bends fiberglass and combines it with various pigments to create concrete stools in blue, yellow, pink, and purple hues.
