As industrial chic continues to soar in popularity it’s time to think about different ways to make the most of a staple industrial feature – concrete flooring. There are tons of ways to incorporate this it’s tough and versatile material into your home. Lee Dunderdale, product manager for Bradstone, has given us the low down on this year’s coolest concrete paving looks.

Paving the way

For those seeking to maximise every inch of available space while creating an ultra-modern design need look no further than a long aspect concrete paving range.

Neat, angular forms create the illusion of more space, while permeating an intrinsically sleek look.

Choosing multi-tonal concrete that has been carefully designed to encapsulate all the natural tactility of granite, as shown below, can add greatly to the aesthetics.

Shine on

For guaranteed ‘wow’ factor, choosing a range which has light reflecting particles will naturally draws the eye. Sparkle, combined with a smooth surface is an easy way to make sure any patio stand out - come rain or shine.

In the Panache Ground range from Bradstone, consumers can choose from an appealingly versatile colour palette; White, Silver Grey and Midnight Grey. For the more eco-minded, it even ticks the sustainability box too – with 83% made from recycled material.


A Tactile Approach

Take a subtler approach to concrete paving with a textured design.

Choosing a textured range will create a softened appearance and tactile feel. Available in many neutral hues, the distinctive finish of tactile paving is striking in entirety, or can be combined with other textures for a truly individual end result.
