Microcement Walls

Transform Your Interiors with the Beauty and Durability of Microcement Walls

Microcement is an innovative coating that introduces a new level of sophistication to commercial or residential interiors. What’s different about it? Microcement creates a seamless, minimalist aesthetic that enhances spaciousness and openness. Its smooth, unbroken expanse exudes elegance and modernity, transforming your home or showroom into a space that inspires a sense of freedom and wellbeing.


Walls coated with microcement don’t just look good – this long-lasting material offers plenty of other benefits, too. While its sleek, minimalist aesthetic is undeniably appealing, it’s the versatility, durability, and low-maintenance nature of microcement that truly sets it apart.

With a vast spectrum of colours to choose from, you can easily integrate microcement into your décor, creating a space that reflects your unique style and preferences. And when it comes to protecting your kitchen and bathroom from the inevitable splashes and spills, microcement’s waterproof properties provide unparalleled peace of mind.

Plus, the ease with which it cleans and maintains means you can effortlessly preserve the pristine condition of your interiors for years to come. So, if you’re seeking a coating that not only elevates your décor but also simplifies your life, microcement is the clear winner.

Embrace the Transformative Power of Microcement Walls

Microcement walls offer a blend of elegance and practicality, which is what makes it such a popular choice. Whether you’re envisioning a minimalist retreat or a vibrant, modern space, microcement serves as an exceptional starting point.

1. Minimal Preparation for Effortless Application

Microcement’s versatility extends to its application process, requiring minimal preparation and no heavy machinery. This coating can be applied directly over existing plaster, tiles, or concrete, eliminating the need for extensive renovations. With a depth of just 3mm, microcement adheres seamlessly to flat, keyed surfaces, ensuring a smooth and flawless finish.

2. Unwavering Durability Against Everyday Wear and Tear

Microcement’s attraction goes beyond aesthetics; it’s a remarkably durable material that can withstand the rigours of everyday life. Its robust nature ensures resistance to knocks, scratches, and chemicals, preserving its ‘just applied’ look for years to come.

4. Effortless Cleaning and Maintenance

Maintaining your microcement walls is a breeze, allowing you to effortlessly preserve their stunning appearance. The absence of grouting joints eliminates potential dirt traps, and the smooth surface can be easily cleaned with a simple damp cloth. Microcement’s low-maintenance nature ensures your walls remain pristine with minimal effort.


The Enduring Allure of New York Loft Style

The New York loft style, born from the resourceful re-imagination of abandoned industrial spaces by artists and bohemians, has evolved from a necessity into a coveted aesthetic. These raw, open-plan spaces, once symbols of urban grit, have transformed into havens of creativity and modern living.

The essence of the loft style lies in its expansive, uncluttered layout, an invitation to experiment with unconventional living arrangements. The original concrete floors and walls, remnants of the spaces’ industrial heritage, have undergone a graceful evolution. Polished concrete and, more recently, microcement have emerged as preferred alternatives, preserving the raw aesthetic while introducing a spectrum of colour, texture, and finish options.

While the UK may not share the same history of loft living, the allure of open-plan spaces has transcended borders, becoming a sought-after design trend. The versatility and sense of openness these spaces offer have resonated with families seeking communal living arrangements that foster connection and shared experiences.
