Outdoor living spaces are the latest and greatest trend for outdoor areas. Not only are they the muse behind memorable evenings underneath the stars, but they form a feature for any outdoor entertainment area. We take a look at our top 7 outdoor flooring trends using Cemcrete’s products.
1. Mixing materials
One of the biggest trends we’ve seen this year is the combination of raw materials, the most popular combo being of raw concrete and wood.

2. Farm house flair
Nothing beats a good old fashioned farm house feel. This trend is all about gathering the family for creating memorable moments.

In this day and age, contrast is king! As an integral design element, contrast can be used to emphasise an area of interest.

4. Greige is the new black
A word on the tip of everyone’s lips – Greige – a subtle combination of Grey and Beige that is now considered the go-to neutral.
We got the look using Cemcrete’s Colour Hardener White on the floors, contrasted with SatinCrete Dolphin Grey as a feature wall.
5. Taking the inside, out
A tranquil flow from your interior space to your exterior, this is one of the best ways to create the illusion of a larger space and to unify your home’s style throughout the space.

6. Rustic finishes
Rustic finishes, like straw, stone and concrete create an eclectic look that emphasises nature.

7. Beach house
Achieving a beach house styled outdoor living area is simpler than you think. Choose fresh colours and raw timber to bring the coast-line to your space.
