floors are sealed concrete and the base trim clear aluminum. Where walls are not exposed CMU, they are painted white. By design, the fireplace provides a singular source of warmth, the gas flame emanating from a bed of crushed glass, surrounded on three sides by a polished concrete hearth.
Just wondering what type of sealer was used on the concrete blocks?
Were the cinder blocks treated is some way?
Since concrete block is porous, these are painted on the exterior. The interior face can be left untreated or use a clear sealer (with a matte finish).

Wow, this is concrete block? I'm not a fan of the overall shape of this house and strange window configuration (just my personal aesthetic) but makes me think concrete block could be a viable finish instead

How did you get the wood weathered look on the concrete wall?
How did you get the wood weathered look on the concrete walls? Thanks !
What did you use to create the modern stripe design on the concrete stepping blocks?
The wood look was achieved by actually attaching rough cut 2x4's to our concrete forms- (but you can actually buy a form liner that will have this same pattern- it is more expensive to do it that way especially if it is a one time use...but the forms are at www.formliners.com Rough Cut
