If you are interested in getting creative with concrete and making your own concrete homewares – there’s lots of mould kits across the high street and online to help produce all different shapes and styles.

Amazon is full of various mould sets with prices as low as £8.99 upwards.

Etsy is also bursting with sets with all sorts of shape designs to use.

And of course, the huge market place eBay, is also packed with sets to use. We love the circular low dish design we found.

Then head to MyFabrics or other online craft providers for small batches of concrete mix to start using your moulds and creating your pieces.

Your own pieces would make great gifts for others and also lovely to have personally designed pieces around your home. Homewares can be left the natural concrete colour or painted or sprayed once dry.

What a thing of beauty – sculptural, with the smoothness of concrete, a wonderful silhouette. The Hauteville low armchair may have a high price tag but this is like art to invest in.

£750 from Tin Design

They say;

In praise of the raw material, the shell construction, concrete and rebar. Refined by a technicality increasingly sophisticated, the Hauteville low armchair is a contemporary image of the low armchair of the 50’s. Unexpected flexibility and comfort. We Tin gals held a meeting on these for an hour or so, they were so comfortable we decided to stock the range! A lifetime investment.

We love the use of concrete within the home. It’s an affordable, versatile and a very beautiful material.

Concrete fans will love the collation of great DIYs with concrete that Remodelista have brought together.

Some are so simple purely using the weight and strength of concrete to create the structure.

Concrete in interiors is a strong trend and there’s a plethora of homeware that use the effect, material or colour in their design.

Floors and walls in concrete create a beautiful effect for an interior but it’s not always possible to introduce it for walls in a home already built or if the budget isn’t there to completely re lay floor, but with the ever advancing of wallpaper design and quality, you can obtain an effective realistic look for your walls with wallpaper.

We found this gorgeous semi gloss concrete look wallpaper by East Urban Home from Wayfair.

Priced from £66.99 per roll.
