Indoor outdoor flow is a term commonly thrown about when discussing residential architecture. It’s something most Kiwis desire – the additional living space that a well-executed exterior design can provide.
It is within this scope that the use of polished concrete as a design feature has been increasing as a way to link interior and exterior living areas, and creating a cohesive, striking design.
“People are wanting to run the same look throughout their home, incorporating design features both inside and outside,” Megafloor’s Scott McBreen says. “That means they might specify for example, a particular finish for their interior floors and then match that with an exterior concrete to link the areas together using the concrete as a real design feature.”
While exterior concrete is finished differently, it can be polished and coloured to recreate the interior polished floors easily.
