Retailers want their spaces to be inviting and sophisticated — something that will catch their customers’ attention and associate their brand with quality. Designers and architects want a product that can be installed quickly, stay in budget and look stunning.
One such high-quality, refined product is concrete cladding. A great choice for retail spaces, it provides endless possibilities for unique, modern designs that will help you set your client (and your design) apart from the crowd.
Here are a few ways that concrete cladding can be used to elevate retail space designs.
Ramp Up the Brand
Designers want the best for their clients. Every element of interior retail design should be developed keeping the client’s brand and values top of mind. Using concrete in indoor design creates a unique feel that can show off product offerings to their best advantage.
One great way to use concrete is through inset designs. Dekko offers completely customizable inset options, working with clients to provide a design their retail clients can be proud of.
Dekko has extensive knowledge of inset designs and some of our work has been featured in multiple popular brand locations across North America. Inset designs can range from ¾ to 2 ½ inches wide.
Because they are slim, they are just as easy to install as our standard concrete cladding panels.
No matter who your clients are, cost and convenience are right up there with quality. If a project takes longer than anticipated or surpasses the budget, clients will place the blame firmly on you. It causes frustration to everyone involved and could cost you in the end, either by hurting your bottom line or reputation.
Dekko’s concrete cladding is ultra-light, weighing less than half the weight of regular concrete. At only 3.5 pounds per square foot, our concrete cladding panels require no foundation or structural modifications and installs in a matter of minutes with just brad nails and foam adhesive.
Plus, if you do need to cut to size on-site, you can use normal carpentry tools like circular or table saws to cut, install and move on with the project.
Customization Means Endless Possibilities
We know our clients — and yours — are as varied as their needs and concrete cladding in retail spaces is a great choice.
Because Dekko’s lightweight concrete cladding is handcrafted and custom-built, our clients get an authentic look and feel of concrete with limitless customizable options. Beyond inset designs, our concrete panels can be ordered in a variety of edging, with six colors to choose from.
With these options, designers and architects can work with their clients to ensure the perfect interior concrete cladding look for their retail space, whether it’s multiple stores across the nation or a single location.
Concrete cladding customization doesn’t have to be limited to walls, flooring or ceiling either. It can be used in retail fixtures such as retail shelving, feature display stand or cozy fireplaces.
Dekko’s lightweight concrete cladding for fireplaces is hand-crafted in North America and is available in a variety of colors and choices of Beach Stone, Fire Glass or Lava Rock for added dimension and style.
High Class, Low Cost
Just because a product looks great, doesn’t mean it has to be expensive.
Dekko’s concrete cladding is a low-cost commercial-grade product that can take the abuse of your clients’ high traffic retail locations, while still keeping its integrity and beautiful look. Plus, it’s low-maintenance, so your clients’ employees don’t have to waste hours cleaning the walls and displays.
This means retailers can move on with what is most important: their customers. Check out this showroom (pictured below) featuring Dekko concrete cladding. Simple, bold and effective.

It may be the last, but it’s definitely not the least. Safety is always top of mind for our clients.
