While decorating an apartment or a house you probably have a general idea of how you want it to be decorated. Rustic, cozy country Provence style, minimalist Scandinavian or maybe raw industrial style? There are plenty of possibilities of designing living room, bedroom or kitchen. Decorating those spaces usually comes pretty easily but for some reason you struggle with the dilemma of how to decorate your bathroom.
In this article we propose incorporating the industrial trend into your home by choosing a concrete bathroom which will fit perfectly in a modern flat.
Industrial style was born in the US in the 1950s but only in 2000s gained its unbelievable popularity in Europe and is still extremely trendy nowadays. It makes reference to old factory halls, storage spaces, garages and other industrial spaces that in recent years have been turned into lofts. It often exposes elements that are usually hidden – tubes, plumbing pipes, beams and electrical ducts. Key components of industrial style include aged wood, exposed brick, industrial lighting fixtures and – last but not least – concrete or it’s younger brother microcement.
