Natural, warm and sustainable, microcement or polished cement is dressing more and more kitchens that want to benefit, as in the case of bathrooms, of its many advantages.
One of the main advantages is that it is a natural material that does not generate waste in its composition. It is the material chosen on many occasions for the countertop, because as it is a seamless material, it avoids unnecessary cuts and is very easy to clean. To clean it, you only need a neutral soap and water. Another great advantage of this material and that differentiates it from many others is that cement can be applied on any type of surface (tile, wood, glass, etc.) allowing you to cover an antique stone countertop or tile-lined baseboard with ease.
its organic finish It makes kitchens more natural and its natural color, gray with different shades, combines well with all colors and textures.
Proof that concrete kitchens are “urbanizing” and are suitable for kitchens of any size is that among the Ikea novelties this season they have incorporated the concrete finish for their kitchen cabinets, which shows that the cement finish is an upward trend, as are the countertops and baseboards that simulate natural stones in gray tones.
Between the one and the other, it is clear that gray is the new white for the kitchen and these images confirm it.
In the images above, two concrete kitchens with more or less rustic wooden doors depending on the wood finish.
To avoid the rustic effect, many limit their use to the kitchen island.
Microcement can also replace traditional tiled kitchen fronts.
And one last advantage of microcement, without a doubt, its versatility. Because the same covers walls as floors, and it is malleable that goes well with the trend of finishes with soft and enveloping shapess, as in the kitchen in the previous image.
