The magic of microcement

Find out more about the versatility of microcement and redefine the elegance of your bathroom space.

In the ever-evolving world of interior design, trends and materials come and go, leaving an indelible mark on the spaces we inhabit. Among these, microcement has emerged as a game-changer, redefining bathroom aesthetics with its smooth elegance, versatility and adaptation to almost any chromatic scheme.

What is microcement?

Micro-cement is a mixture of conventional cement, water-based resins and mineral pigments that add colour. Its seamless look and resistance to slippage are perfect for application in the contemporary bathroom, and on top can be applied over any existing surface, including unsightly old tiles and damaged or rough walls.

Microcement in spa-inspired bathrooms

For those wanting a serene, softly lit spa-oasis look, microcement is an obvious choice. It lends a finish almost identical to those encountered in traditional Arabic hammams (traditional bathhouses) or warm, Mediterranean interiors. Its seamless surfaces evoke a sense of serenity that transforms the bathroom into a haven of relaxation. When combined with natural wood or stone accents, lush greenery and soft lighting, microcement instantly transforms the bathroom into a lavish oasis.

Transform your bathroom with colour

Microcement, when combined with colour, transforms the bathroom into a stunning and contemporary oasis. The addition of colour opens up a world of design possibilities, allowing you to personalize your bathroom with a wide range of hues and shades. Whether you opt for a soft, soothing palette for a spa-like atmosphere or bold, vibrant colours for a statement look, microcement’s adaptability ensures a cohesive and sophisticated finish.

Practicality and style

In addition to its aesthetic appeal, the practical benefits of microcement extend to its seamless application in shower areas and its compatibility with level shower trays. This combination not only enhances the overall look of the bathroom, but also makes it easier to access, catering for a wide range of mobility needs. This smooth surface also minimises grout lines and reduces the area prone to dirt and mould accumulation, making cleaning and maintenance easier.
