A brutalist industrial material, admired for centuries for its strength and durability – but not its looks – has stepped into the spotlight of modern luxe interiors. Concrete is now a popular finish for kitchen renovations and bathroom design, admired for its raw beauty and organic form. The evolution of concrete means it is now trending as a choice for floors, walls, benchtops, vanities and splashbacks. Inspired by the rough, tough and unpolished textures, colours and patinas found in industrial architecture Caesarstone’s Metropolitan Collection offers nine concrete-inspired finishes that take their cue from materials such as oxidised steel, weathered cement and hand-poured concrete.
Some are heavily patinated, such as Rugged Concrete and Airy Concrete; while Cloudburst Concrete is a whisper grey with barely-there cloud-like markings. These finishes exude tactility, depth and movement and introduce immediate character to a home renovation. For a lustrous, more refined look Fresh Concrete, Raw Concrete and Sleek Concrete offer inspirational choices from the white, grey and taupe colour palettes. Topus Concrete, combining mineral formations found in nature with the rugged patinas of industrial materials, introduces neutral blush undertones into the concrete mix. It’s an ideal finish for use with neutral or off-white walls, stained parquet, or grey tiles. Dark timbers and black elements are ideal accessories.
Suitable for benchtops, splashbacks, vanities, walls and furniture, Caesarstone’s concrete collection of quartz surfaces are heat and scratch resistant, easy to clean and never require sealing. The Caesarstone Metropolitan collection offers nine concrete-inspired finishes:
