Gone are the days when we used to ignore concrete. Back in the days when people considered it as cold, common and tediously boring, modern designers turned the tables around and gave this material a fresh new twist. It is swiftly becoming a contemporary favourite, thanks to its durability and minimalistic beauty. Another plus? It's water-resistant, making it a perfect decor for bathrooms.
Don't turn away from the possibilities of using concrete décor in your bathroom. Here are some ways you can stylishly infuse the material in your favourite sanctuary.
Simplify the look of your bathtub with a concrete basin and enjoy your daily dips with a utilitarian flair. And since your bathroom decor is stripped bare, indulge in essentials like colourful rugs, luxurious towels, elegant hardware and a little bit of art to enjoy the scene. We suggest adding a painting to break the grey colours of concrete. Alternatively, adding furniture with a pop of colour can make your bathroom more exciting.
When you're not up for a complete concrete décor do-over, maybe you should try picking a bold colour palette, like this black tiled number. The intriguing patterns on the wall instantly breaks the dull grey colours of concrete, adding a sense of glam to your bathroom. Tip: you can choose one highlight wall in your bathroom so that the colours will not overwhelm your eyes.
Wood is wonderful:
The softness of wood easily breaks the tough appeal of concrete, that is why these two materials go hand in hand. To create a more effeminate space, add gloosy textures like ceramics and glass, and decorate your bathroom with plants. Make sure these greens can last with little sunlight (unless they are placed near the window) and a lot of moisture.
If you're not into major overhauls, you can still enjoy concrete décor in tiny details, like your lighting. Fat Shack Vintage features an array of concrete-themed pieces designed to go with your contemporary bathroom. Take for example our Concrete Timber Pendant; the raw and industrial style of this piece evokes a true blue urban flair. For the minimalists, check out our Concrete Base Pendant Light & Cord by NUD.

From top to bottom:
A full-on concrete interior paves the way to introduce a timeless look in your bathroom. Its monotonous texture (as some may dislike from the beginning) becomes a perfect canvass to add more colours, such as this gentleman's bath with black, wood and gold accents.
