Cement and Coziness

By: Sarah Carlye

Coziness is usually associated with things that are soft, plush, and comfortable. Those words don’t describe concrete in most vocabularies. Concrete floors are easy to clean and very durable, but might not give the cozy atmosphere that is the goal of many decorators. A few little extras will keep the convenience of concrete in balance with a cozy atmosphere.

In a home, coziness is more important than in a warehouse, but the same cement can be used in both locations while one will be efficient and the other will be inviting. In a home coziness can be created in the following ways:

• Area rugs won’t hide all the concrete and still provide soft footing around couches and other conversation areas. Use smaller rugs when the concrete has intricate designs, staining, or other decorative aspects.
• Rugs on the side of beds will provide warmth and softness when getting into and out of bed.
• Rugs near entryways will catch dirt and be welcoming to guests when they first enter the home.
• Make the most of decorative designs, staining, and engraving to avoid the warehouse floor look.
• Balance out the hardness of a cement floor with extra plush furniture with fluffy decorative pillows placed on couches and chairs.

In a home, pets enjoy the coolness of cement in the summer. For the winter pets may enjoy having a pet bed or their own soft rug. This is recommended for older pets as well. This will keep them off furniture looking for a soft warm spot.

Rugs can be put up and store during the summer months when the cool cement ads to the comfort of the home. It is easier to clean with kids running in and out through out the day.

For offices, rugs placed in waiting areas and near the help desk or reception area will create a more relaxing and inviting atmosphere. Canvas, textured, and woven wall hangings will balance the smooth hard concrete floor surface.
