1. Waxed concrete coating, the star of raw materials

If it were necessary to designate a raw material star all trends taken together, it would undoubtedly be him: waxed concrete squats all rooms, from the kitchen to the bedroom ... via the bathroom, provided that it is treated against humidity. Better still, it can be applied everywhere, from the floors to the walls to the stairs!

2. The raw style of the brick wall

Just as trendy but warmer than waxed concrete, brick evokes the industrial style and New York lofts. Suffice to say that we love it, to spice up an ethnic living room or give character to a bohemian bedroom… Especially in its imitation wallpaper version, in relief more real than life please, when you haven't real bricks at home!

3. The raw material of the wooden slats

A slightly too bland wall? We cover it with raw wood slats, horizontally to lengthen or vertically to gain height. The rough version of the paneling, in short, easy to make yourself by gluing or screwing recovery boards or pallets directly on the wall. Since it's raw, random finishes are welcome!

4. Converted raw logs

We did not find more raw than logs with their bark, recycled in stools or bedside tables. Cut into thin rings, you can even get coasters, saucers or coasters! The details that change everything? The rough stone planter and the pallet bed to complete the decor.

5. The pallet bed, king of raw materials


Shutterstock

We were talking about it, precisely ... We could not mention raw materials without talking about pallet furniture, as trendy as decorative. And the bed is undoubtedly the simplest to make, since it suffices to stack the pallets before putting a mattress on it! We can even push the refinement to match the pallets to the beams and the fireplace, when we have them.

6. An agglo wall to adopt raw materials


Shutterstock

Another raw material that is on the rise: agglo is a reconstituted wood with agglomerated shavings, generally reserved for hidden works or constructions… All the more reason to put it on the front of the stage by placing a large plank like accent wall, or even simply at the head of the bed for the most timid.

7. Raw materials gently with painted stone


Shutterstock

Stone or brick, same fight: when you don't really take on, you soften the atmosphere with a good coat of white paint. The material remains raw, keeps its bohemian loft side, but gains in elegance and modernity. By the way, the paint hides all the flaws, and there are again imitations in relief wallpaper if the walls are desperately smooth!

8. A plank of raw wood like a painting


Shutterstock

And if we adopted the raw materials without changing everything ? We recover a beautiful plank of raw wood with visible veins and different colors, we put it on a piece of furniture or hang it on the wall… on a white background for the Scandinavian look, dark gray for the industrial style, the result is simple, cheap and frankly amazing!

9. A metal cabinet to decline the raw materials


Shutterstock

Highly sought after, patinated metal cabinets stick to the raw materials trend and add an industrial touch as decorative in the dining room as in an office. The bad news? They are so sought after that real vintages are rare and expensive. The maid ? Copies and reissues are numerous, and can be found at all prices!

10. A fencing in strips of raw wood


Shutterstock

of the raw wood cleats, screws, a drill and a screwdriver, let's go for a simple and easy to adopt DIY! The cleats assembled on another laid horizontally turn into a fence to compartmentalize the space, isolate a room without closing it or even to replace a staircase banister. And all at a low price.

11. Raw concrete planters

A trendy decorative object if ever there was one, the concrete planter can be found everywhere, is not very expensive and adds a nice touch to your bedroom, living room or office. The secret ? We play on accumulation and small models by aligning several miniature succulents in their concrete pots. And we can even make it in DIY with gloves, a good tutorial and a tarpaulin.

12. A complete wall of raw wood


Shutterstock

A partition at a low price for a beef effect? We bet on wood, blond and rough. To boost the decorative effect, we use narrow planks to align in one direction, then in the other, playing on the directions to create a graphic effect. And it works just as well to create a screen as a door, to cover a wall or to form a pipe!

13. Metal chairs and stools for daring raw materials


Shutterstock

Queens of the industrial style, the metal seats are available in high stools, bar stools, chairs with backrest or simple stools. And all of them mix raw materials, look a bit retro or downright vintage, in steel color or pop shades. Something to give style to a kitchen or an office, especially in a set of mismatched chairs.

14. A staircase made of raw materials


Shutterstock

And if we adopted the raw materials for a contemporary staircase ? Wood brings warmth and an authentic look, steel modernizes it and makes it gain in originality. Result, a design staircase, graphic but not cold so far. And the mixture can even be used to renovate an existing staircase, by dressing the steps before changing the railing!

15. A rough concrete bench outside


Shutterstock

On the terrace, in the garden or in a patio, we found the right idea to make a chic and inexpensive bench: concrete, of course! With good formwork and good drying time, most essential raw materials forms the uprights of the bench or even the seat, depending on taste. The extra thing? No need to get complicated, we keep the gray blocks in the background!

16. Raw materials with logs in the house


Shutterstock

Difficult to find raw material than a tree trunk cut into pieces ... and to adopt it in the decor, we have the choice between real log storage or imitation wallpaper on an accent wall! No need to lie, in summer, the wallpaper adapts better, especially as it goes perfectly with rough cut wood or metallic structures.

17. A unique waxed concrete wall to play with raw materials


Shutterstock

Bring in the raw materials in our interiors does not necessarily mean redoing all coatings. On the contrary, even, the waxed concrete in accent wall ensures the decorative effect, especially if it is associated with a black and white decoration for a graphic look. Too marked? Do not panic, the rough concrete also works perfectly with a dragee pink or a yellow sun!

18. A raw wood headboard and recuperated shelves


Shutterstock

Simple, not very expensive and effective, here is a headboard as we like: a wooden board placed behind the bed, that's all. The extra thing? The library in large raw reclaimed wood planks that give the impression of leaving the site, assembled to form a chic and easy-to-adopt graphic shelf.

19. Raw concrete lanterns


Shutterstock

Another simple idea for use raw materials very soflty ? We are relying on DIY again to make cute concrete candle jars ourselves, in which to slide small tealights or LED lights. Perfect on the edge of the fireplace, in the middle of the dining table or even on the terrace in summer!

20. Raw wood blocks in the bedroom


Shutterstock

Like logs, big raw wood blocks can be transformed into a multitude of small pieces of furniture. The difference ? Their smooth appearance is more design and more contemporary. We make stools, bedside tables or even beds, the chic version of the pallet bed ... even if it might be fair, the price is not quite the same!
