Design Trends: How to Pair Tile and Concrete

A major component in today's modern kitchen is concrete. These grey slabs can seem uninspired and rough on their own, but supported with the right companion materials concrete is far from cold. Poured concrete counters offer strength, style, are seemingly timeless in appearance, and tile becomes an essential balancing element. Artfully blended the two materials exude an irresistible rustic warmth.
