Concrete is a great way to turn a space into a minimalistic and rustic haven, and it’s much more versatile than you’d think
If a poured concrete kitchen seems like a bit too much of an undertaking, don’t be despondent. Instead, you can mimic the look by coating your furniture in a thin layer of concrete, as seen in this design by Leicht for Connaught Kitchens. The finish is applied using a spatula and then protected with a matt satin lacquer. ‘Manhattan’ kitchen by Leicht, from £35,000, Connaught Kitchens (connaughtkitchens.co.uk)
