Micro Concrete Makes Stunning Interiors More Accessible


Concrete has long since had a very popular presence on the design scene and now thanks to mico concrete it's an aesthetic that more spaces can achieve. Micro concrete, also known as microcement or microtopping, is a versatile material that’s quickly growing in demand in interior design. 


Micro concrete is a cement-based coating that can be applied to various surfaces such as wood or tile to achieve that seamless, polished, and modern look we’re currently all drooling over. What I love most about seeing the expansion of micro concrete in interior design is the absolutely gorgeous growth it brought to the concrete trend. Now cement isn’t just for industrial interiors, modern minimalists and even texture enthusiasts have a whole new material to play with.

Here’s why microcement is worth paying attention to: 


  • Versatility: Micro concrete can be applied to floors, walls, countertops, and even furniture. Its versatility makes it suitable for various design applications.

  • Seamless Finish: One of the primary advantages of micro concrete is its ability to create a seamless and continuous surface. This is particularly appealing for modern and minimalist design styles.

  • Thin Application: It’s applied in thin layers, typically ranging from 2 to 3 mm. Despite its thinness, it provides a durable and strong surface when properly installed.

  • Colors and Finishes: It comes in a variety of colors, allowing us interior designers to match our client’s desired aesthetic. Additionally, different finishes, such as matte or glossy, can be achieved.

  • Texture Options: Depending on the application technique, micro concrete can offer various textures, from smooth and polished to more textured finishes, adding depth and character to the design.

  • Water-Resistant: When sealed properly, micro concrete becomes water-resistant, making it suitable for wet areas like bathrooms and kitchens.

  • Customization: Micro concrete allows for a high degree of customization. It can be tinted, stained, or even used in conjunction with stencils to create intricate patterns and designs.

  • Durability: Despite its thin application, micro concrete is durable and can withstand daily wear and tear. It is resistant to cracks and can last for an extended period with proper maintenance.

  • Application Process: The application of micro concrete involves several steps, including surface preparation, applying a bonding agent, layering the micro concrete, and finishing with sealants. Professional installation is recommended for the best results. 

  • Popular in Modern Design: Micro concrete is often associated with modern and industrial interior design styles. Its sleek and polished appearance contributes to a contemporary aesthetic.
