Unusual ideas for DIY concrete


Our team of concrete specialists are experienced in delivering DIY concrete and screed for projects both big and small, straight to your door. You may think that concrete isn’t the most exciting or versatile material when considering a DIY project, but we’re here to change those perceptions and get you inspired with some more unusual ideas to consider for your next DIY project.


Why not use some of our ready mix concrete to create some modern shelving? Concrete might not be the first thing you consider when think of shelving materials, but it can be an excellent method that looks great too, both in indoor and outdoor settings. Concrete is an incredibly durable and cost-effective material, which can complement your existing décor and its water-resistant nature makes it great for bathrooms and kitchens.


As long as you have a mould, the possibilities when it comes to what you can do with ready mix concrete are endless, which is what makes it such an excellent choice for decorations both in the garden and indoors. You can make modern sculptural pieces such as garden globes, bird baths, plant pots, candle holders, bookends and much more to visually enhance your home.


There are lots of different ways that you can incorporate ready mix concrete into a stylish garden or annex bench. Concrete makes an excellent sturdy base for a bench and combining concrete blocks with wooden planks and cushions can result in a stylish and comfortable result. If you’re going for something more stripped back, just using ready mix concrete for your garden bench can lend your garden or annex an modern vibe.
