Commercial spaces are getting a redesign, and it’s about time.
More and more designers are embracing the idea that concrete can be used for so much more than exterior cladding panels. A growing trend in commercial interior design is using concrete cladding panels as a way to create a modern aesthetic. It’s an innovative way to take a commercial design to the next level.
Keep reading to see how other designers have used it to make their projects stand out.
Bland Commercial Design and How to Avoid It
One of the biggest issues in today’s commercial building industry is unused space. But this growing problem gives commercial designers a real opportunity: to revitalize the design of a building so that it functions properly and can be more easily accessed (and enjoyed).
“When a building is unpopular or underused, that means something about its design doesn’t resonate with its target markets,” according to Mary Cook with Buildings.com.
There are a few ways that architects and designers can bring new life into commercial interiors, and the materials used can help to elevate any interior design and stay within the building owner’s budget.
Add Interest With an Inset Design
Bring impact to any space by incorporating a concrete inset design into your commercial interior. You can feature illustrations, company logos or beautiful patterns on these panels from Dekko, which come in a variety of colors to give building owners even more options.
The custom concrete cladding panels pictured above give this coffee shop a feel of sophistication and modernity. As a bonus, the panels also provide additional acoustic comfort in the space.
Impress Visitors With Bold Design
Installing interior cladding panels with a bold inset design, like the tiger detail featured here, will certainly leave an impression on building visitors. Inset design panels from Dekko range from 3/4″ to 2 1/2” deep concrete cladding, and they come ready-to-install.
If you want to use company logos or custom imprints, Dekko can bring that design to life — and Dekko’s service team can help to ensure that designers find a cladding solution for any kind of commercial space.
Ensure Elegance in Any Space
Concrete wall panels don’t just provide protection and durability to your building design. They can also add elegance to commercial spaces in ways that might surprise you. The luxury showroom above uses concrete panels to offset the sleek curves of the cars that are on display.
These lightweight concrete panels from Dekko are featured in charcoal, and because the panels weigh only 3.5 pounds per square foot, no structural modifications are needed to support the design. And installation is simple: The panels can even be trimmed on-site using a table or circular saw.
Don’t Compromise on Your Commercial Design
Sometimes a construction project comes with a lot of compromises. Having an attractive design sometimes means sacrificing on product quality or having to deal with high-maintenance materials.
But commercial building owners can still get the design they want with high-quality materials that can help them achieve a successful space. Dekko’s lightweight concrete cladding panels are not only easier to work with than traditional concrete, but they are easy to clean and maintain after they’re installed.
While Dekko’s highly versatile, concrete cladding comes in standard panel sizes to help enhance any space, some building owners need a design that’s one-of-a-kind. Dekko also specializes in custom cladding, ensuring building owners and designers have limitless options when it comes to their project.
Designing More Successfully With Concrete Cladding
As more commercial buildings embrace modern design, more designers and owners are turning to concrete cladding as a way to differentiate their spaces.
