Tough and practical, yet super stylish and so on trend - here's are some of the most stylish concrete bathroom ideas.
Looking for stylish concrete bathroom ideas? Concrete is increasingly becoming the go-to material in many stylish homes. Its a functional utilitarian surface that gives kitchens or living rooms a strong industrial feel, and it makes a particularly great choice for bathrooms thanks to both its strength and its versatility.
Materials used in bathrooms face a number of challenges, not least water splashing and humidity changes. Although it is a naturally porous material, concrete is uniquely suited to handling even the toughest environmental hazards. Its easy to seal with a clear chemical treatment, which will both soak into the pores and lay over the surface of the material, creating an invisible barrier.
New print and staining techniques allow you to use concrete as blank canvas to have fun with, and it can be honed and polished down into a very smooth surface.
It’s not just for flooring, this Scandi cool design shows how it can be used both on the floor and walls to dramatic effect. Use this gallery of gorgeous bathroom designs featuring concrete in various ways as a starting point for your own concrete plans.
This luxurious space offers a peaceful retreat. The walls are not actually concrete but a painted plaster effect.

The oversized bathtub was originally created for use as an animal trough, but it works great as a bath. The trough itself cost under £200 – though it took five men to get it in place. It could have cost four times that amount to have it made.
Get the look: The bath is a concrete trough from Mole Valley Farmers. The white pottery is from Made.com. The bathroom sink is an old wood dough bowl from eBay.

The bespoke concrete wall and floor panels are from Ivanka.
