Commercial fitout and design trends are always evolving, and at Premis Solutions, we like to stay on top of these trends.
The use of concrete in interior fitouts – not just exteriors – is one interesting trend in the commercial fitout world that we have seen emerge in recent times.
This blog explores why you may want to consider using concrete in your interior fitout, and how you can use it successfully.
Concrete offers a number of practical and design benefits.
On the practical side, concrete is a sturdy and durable material, making it an ideal choice in many commercial settings. It’s also surprisingly versatile, and can be used in a number of applications.
From a design perspective, concrete offers an easy way to create an “industrial” look in your commercial space – a trendy style that’s become a popular aesthetic. And thanks to its relatively simple appearance, concrete also offers a great “blank slate” for showcasing other design features in your commercial interior.
Polished concrete flooring is an obvious place to start when it comes to using concrete in your commercial interior fitout. Attractively shiny, it’s also clean, durable, and easy to maintain, making it a fantastic choice for many businesses and organisations. As an added bonus, the reflective surface can help to maximise lighting, reducing your energy bill and benefiting your staff.
A growing number of benches and other utility surfaces are also being made from concrete. Hard-wearing and durable, concrete is an ideal material for these applications, so this is a trend we’re only likely to see more of in the coming years. Depending on your needs and equipment, this may be an ideal solution in your commercial space.
A number of commercial interiors are also beginning to feature concrete lighting fittings. This creates a particularly industrial aesthetic.
As commercial fitout specialists, we’re passionate about helping our clients incorporate practical and on-trend features in their commercial spaces.
