Make your dreams of a friendly and inviting entertainment home into a reality. Integrate modern design elements with the concrete in a range of colours, textures and finishes to make your home an entertainer’s sanctuary. From the front gate to elegant alfresco dining spaces, we have brought together some of our favourite guides to creating the perfect home for hosting guests.
While your pathway may not typically appear to be an accommodating area, it’s a space that sets the mood for the rest of your home. Make your guests feel embraced from the moment they step through your front gate. A beautifully maintained concrete path with some adorning pots will emote a feeling of delicacy and care to your entrance. Add some bright greenery in your concrete planters and along your honed or exposed path to emphasises a modern and luxurious feel.
Open Plan Living
Connect your exterior to interior by incorporating a similar concrete flooring choice. From a honed finish outside, to a polished concrete inside, you will be ensuring a level of style that is seamless throughout your home. Polished concrete floors are a sure-fire way to wow visitors in your home. From a low sheen to a high gloss, this flooring system is the ultimate floor in your entertainer’s deluxe home.

In the kitchen
It can be said that the kitchen is at the heart of any home. Ensure your kitchen is a friendly and inviting space by incorporating concrete into your area with a statement island bench. Entertaining from your kitchen will be a dream. Integrate natural timbers with your concrete bench to deliver a rustic and modern ambience, with a warm and intimate feel. Pair with warm lights over the island bench to bring a cosy mood to your kitchen. Reflect your personal style and unique taste to your kitchen with a selection of colours available here at CCS.
