Decorating Tips For Rooms With Concrete Floor Tiles

If you want your home to have a sleek, industrial-inspired look, concrete floor tiles may be for you. Whether you've just moved into a house or apartment that features them, or if you're replacing your current flooring for concrete tiles, you can use furniture and decor pieces to create cohesive look. 

Not only do concrete tiles look clean and modern, they're durable and easy to care for as well. Since they're highly resistant to cracks, chips and breaks, the tiles can withstand a lot of daily wear and tear, which is important if you have a busy household. 

While concrete flooring won't give your home a warm, rustic appearance, you can use rugs and other pieces to change up the look from time to time if you'd like. Play up concrete's urban- and warehouse-inspired feel with other neutral colors and silver accents. Don't be afraid to add pops of vibrant colors via textiles and decor pieces as well. 

Following are some tips for furnishing and decorating a home with concrete floor tiles:

1. Floor Coverings

Add a touch of warmth to the tiles using plush floor coverings. A fluffy, faux fur rug, for instance, will provide the perfect contrast between soft and sleek. A fur-inspired rug will also give any room in your house a luxurious look. Choose either white or cream-colored faux fur for a natural, rather than tacky, appearance. 

As another option, pick a rug featuring a bright color, such as grass green, tropical yellow or cherry red, to provide a sharp contrast to the concrete. You can work the same color into the decor scheme via pillows, throw blankets, artwork and other items so that it all blends together seamlessly. 

If you prefer a more elegant look, choose a rug featuring a classic grey and white fleur de lis, floral or geometric design. You can use several small area rugs or place one large floor covering in the center of the room as a focal point.

2. Furniture 

Another way to add softness to a room with concrete tiles is with plush, comfortable furniture. To keep with the modern vibe, stick with sofas and chairs featuring neutral hues, such as white, cream or light grey. Use decorative pillows to add accent colors to the space. 

Look for furniture pieces with industrial-inspired touches, including retro silver couch and chair legs, brushed nickel drawer pulls and other hardware, and coffee and side tables with glass tops and metal bases.
