Poured concrete create the backdrop for this loft style kitchen. A pop of orange in the island counter top brings a playful touch to the industrial space.

What Houzz contributors are saying:
Concrete floors. The ultimate multitasker, concrete floors are often both the finished floor and the structural floor too. Simplifying a complex flooring system to a single material is a smart, efficient and cost-effective solution. To green your concrete, you can increase the fly-ash content (a by-product of coal processing), but do so only if coal is processed in your region. Otherwise the environmental impacts of transporting the fly ash outweigh the benefits. Alternatively, consider adding recycled glass to reduce the amount of virgin aggregate used.
