A couple of months into 2022, we’ve already seen a few polarizing design trends, such as a natural concrete atmosphere, emerge!
We’ve previously discussed how to maximize the impact of metallic paint finishes, but now it’s time to discuss a trend on the other side of the aesthetic spectrum.
The natural concrete trend is ready to infuse your interiors with a subtle yet sophisticated edge. But, if you’re a bit of a skeptic and you’re not entirely convinced about this particular look, then this article is especially for you.
We’ll explain why a natural concrete finish is so effective and why it is poised to become a mainstay in the design landscape in the future.

Why a natural concrete finish is set to steal the spotlight in 2022
Here are just a few reasons why the concrete trend is absolutely swoon-worthy:
Concrete offers an industrial, edgy atmosphere
It goes without saying that industrial design and concrete go hand in hand. When people think about a concrete finish, images of former industrial warehouses converted into sun-drenched lofts or recycled parts of machinery repurposed into elegant accent pieces often spring to mind.
Upkeep is easy
Another reason why the natural concrete finish is becoming an increasingly popular option in interior design is that it uses a low-maintenance material. In fact, most of your work occurs when you apply plaster.
It adds texture
Texture can add a tremendous amount of visual interest to your space (Remember that texture relates to how an element looks and feels in the context of interior design!)
When it comes to highlighting texture, the goal is to create contrast. The concrete finish, in particular, works best when contrasted with something natural, such as wood.
It becomes an instant focal point
Every room in your home should have a focal point. A raw, natural concrete look adds a lot of visual weight to a room when used in the design.
This means that it will immediately draw your attention, ground the space, and provide a fantastic option for a focal point in your house. If you’re willing, this bold decorative element always fits the bill.

Combining a natural concrete appearance with a proactive green product instills thoughts of trust and permanency. With this in mind, there is little doubt that this style will continue to be popular.
