The use of concrete in interiors has been popular for some time now. It’s a material that’s versatile, strong and long-lasting. Predominantly, though, it has been used more often for floors rather than walls.
However, that’s changing as designers and architects look for more striking options to create a visual presence, both in residential settings and to create a point of difference in retail and commercial spaces.
Concreate is about to launch a new offering in wall panels to the New Zealand market, which will be available from August 2018. Designed specifically for use on walls, rather than floors, the panels are highly textural and designed to create a statement.
“They come in two colours, mineral sand and metallic copper,” Concreate’s Mark Wilson says. “The panels are created with a concrete/cement skim as the top layer. More patina is made by way of adding rough marks and an aged finished on the base coat, combined with more random cement finish in the top layer.
