Micro concrete kitchens: advantages, styles and tips .
Micro concrete kitchens are the preferred choice of more and more renovation professionals, architects and decorators due to the many advantages offered by this decorative coating. A coating that guarantees unique creations to renovate a room as important as the kitchen.ç
One of the particularities of micro concrete in kitchens is that it can be implemented in many ways thanks to its versatility. In this way we find kitchens with micro concrete on floors, walls, kitchen worktops and even sinks.
Advantages of applying micro concrete in kitchens
The application of micro concrete in kitchens offers numerous benefits. Here we explain the main ones so that you can understand why micro concrete kitchens have become a decorative trend on the rise.
1. Applying micro concrete in the kitchen does not require any building work.
When it comes to renovating a room, time is money. Even more so when it comes to a kitchen. As micro concrete is compatible with practically any material, it is applied directly on the existing surface without the need for building work. In just a few days you will have your micro concrete kitchen ready.
2. Variety of colours for kitchens with micro concrete
There is a wide variety of colours of micro concrete with which to cover your kitchen. From more neutral shades such as white, grey or black to more striking pigments. In Topciment we have a complete range of micro concrete colours.
3. Micro concrete kitchens have good thermal and chemical resistance
This coating has good resistance to heat and also to domestic cleaning products. Two differential factors have made micro concrete floors and walls fashionable in kitchens as well as kitchen countertops coated with Micro concrete.
4. Micro concrete kitchens can be waterproofed
Beyond the decorative value, for rooms such as kitchens, what is sought above all is a coating that is highly functional and adapts to the needs. In this sense, guaranteeing a waterproof finish in a space that is so exposed to water and similar liquids is fundamental. This is why micro concrete in kitchens is so popular. With the use of varnishes and sealants designed by Topciment (products page), kitchens with micro concrete can be made waterproof. But not only is the substrate completely waterproofed, it also provides extra hardness. 2 for 1 in every sense of the word!
5. Micro concrete in kitchens can be non-slip
In the same way that impermeability is an added value of micro concrete in kitchens, its ability to be non-slip is another of its great advantages over other coatings. But, in this case, it is also necessary to use the right product. At Topciment we have developed Topsealer WT Anti Slip (product link), a water-based polyurethane varnish that transforms any surface into non-slip. An ideal finish especially for micro concrete floors in the kitchen.
Micro concrete kitchens for all styles
If there is one thing that characterises this material, it is the wide range of possibilities it offers. For every decorative style, there is a perfect micro concrete kitchen. At Topciment we propose four different styles of micro concrete kitchens:
Minimalist micro concrete kitchens
For those who opt for a kitchen in which straight lines predominate both in the furniture and in the layout of the space. The absence of joints favours continuity in micro concrete kitchens, a fundamental factor in minimalist design.
Eclectic micro concrete kitchens
For people who prefer a kitchen that combines different types of materials (wood, plasterboard, slate or tiles). Eclectic micro concrete kitchens can combine the traditional with the modern, luxury with simplicity.
Nordic micro concrete kitchens
You don't need a huge kitchen to make it shine. The Scandinavian or Nordic style is ideal for small micro concrete kitchens, as it enhances the beauty of the smallest details. White tones will not only magnify the dimensions of your kitchen, but will also enhance the natural light in the room.
Industrial micro concrete kitchens
Do you prefer a kitchen with a more modern, avant-garde and urban aesthetic? We propose a 100% industrial style, which is becoming more and more widespread in the decoration of interiors such as kitchens. In industrial micro concrete kitchens, the combination of walls and floors of this continuous coating in grey and black colours predominates.
Micro concrete application in kitchens
The process of applying micro concrete in kitchens depends on the surface to be covered, whether it is horizontal or vertical, as well as the type of coating chosen: two-component micro concrete, one-component micro concrete or ready-to-use Micro concrete.
How to apply micro concrete on the kitchen floor

How to apply micro concrete on kitchen walls
The qualities of micro concrete walls are not far behind.

How to apply micro concrete on kitchen worktops
Kitchen worktops with micro concrete are becoming increasingly popular partly because of the resistance to abrasion and heat that this decorative coating confers. It is also very easy to clean and can be quickly adapted to any worktop shape.
