Microcement kitchens: advantages, styles and tips
Microcement 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 microcement in kitchens is that it can be implemented in many ways thanks to its versatility. In this way we find kitchens with microcement on floors, walls, kitchen worktops and even sinks.
Advantages of applying microcement in kitchens
The application of microcement in kitchens offers numerous benefits. Here we explain the main ones so that you can understand why microcement kitchens have become a decorative trend on the rise.
1. Applying microcement 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 microcement 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 microcement kitchen ready.
2. Variety of colours for kitchens with microcement
There is a wide variety of colours of microcement 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 microcement colours.
3. Microcement 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 microcement floors and walls fashionable in kitchens as well as kitchen countertops coated with microcement.
4. Microcement 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 microcement in kitchens is so popular. With the use of varnishes and sealants designed by Topciment (products page), kitchens with microcement 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. Microcement in kitchens can be non-slip
In the same way that impermeability is an added value of microcement 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 microcement floors in the kitchen.
Microcement 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 microcement kitchen. At Topciment we propose four different styles of microcement kitchens:
Minimalist microcement 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 microcement kitchens, a fundamental factor in minimalist design.
Eclectic microcement kitchens
For people who prefer a kitchen that combines different types of materials (wood, plasterboard, slate or tiles). Eclectic microcement kitchens can combine the traditional with the modern, luxury with simplicity.
Nordic microcement kitchens
You don't need a huge kitchen to make it shine. The Scandinavian or Nordic style is ideal for small microcement 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 microcement 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 microcement kitchens, the combination of walls and floors of this continuous coating in grey and black colours predominates.
Microcement application in kitchens
The process of applying microcement 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 microcement, one-component microcement or ready-to-use microcement.
How to apply microcement on the kitchen floor
Microcement flooring offers numerous advantages, especially its high resistance to wear and tear over time, impact and traffic. These benefits make it one of the smartest options for renovating kitchen floors.
But how do you apply microcement to kitchen floors? Find out here.
How to apply microcement on kitchen walls
The qualities of microcement walls are not far behind. Beyond the aesthetic component, since any style can be given to kitchen walls, microcement on kitchen walls has excellent resistance to scratches and stains. This last advantage is very useful, because when cooking it is inevitable that some food splashes end up on the wall.
You will find the step-by-step instructions for applying microcement to kitchen walls here.
How to apply microcement on kitchen worktops
Kitchen worktops with microcement 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.
Whatever the microcement worktop you have in mind, the application process is the same. We explain how to apply microcement to the kitchen worktop here.
