Why modern apartments and offices all have naked/exposed concrete and pipes that look like factory?
Is that a design trend that most modern apartments and tech company offices have naked concrete without paint? It's ugly as fuck! Who started such design trend or is it just to save the cost of paint? I want to personally buy a few gallons of paint and paint these walls myself.

To have an exposed concrete surface that doesn't look terrible you need to do a lot of sanding and polishing and filling small cracks and holes and that's not cheap. If you decide to simply paint it it would still look bad without surface prep.
My guess is some lazy ass convinced people that the "industrial" feel in an office translates to "we are doing some serious shit and we are not afraid to get our hands dirty"
