Microcement offers a unique style that cannot be easily replicated. It provides an effect similar to cement, but because it offers endless applications for interior design, more and more homes are turning to micro cement to create impressive decorative finishes.
The material is not only durable but also provides a contemporary style that greatly improves the aesthetics of any room (although it is mainly used in living rooms, outdoor spaces, kitchens or bathrooms). It can be used for floors and walls and is also a popular choice for industrial surfaces as well.
Are you interested in microcement as the coating for any floor in your home? Here are some tips and tricks to help you combine the colour scheme of your home with the ideal microcement floor.
Colour schemes combined with micro cement floors
While micro cement is available in several colours, it tends to be used in natural gray tones (usually the light gray found in standard cement). To achieve that unique industrial style offered by micro cement, it is best to maintain that gray tone.
So what colour combinations work well with a micro cement floor? There are quite a few options, which mean that it often comes down to personal preferences and aspects such as lighting, furniture and the size and shape of the room.
Tonal contrasts are usually a good place to start, especially with light gray floors. Adding much darker blacks or grays produces a wonderful contrast that remains within the industrial aesthetic.
Black walls with gray floors offer a fairly extreme contrast, so it is a good idea to use lighter shades of gray or even white on most walls, using smaller doses of black to help highlight certain design features.
As black, white and gray colour palette is a great colour scheme to achieve that industrial look. Don’t be afraid to experiment with various shades and hues while complementing the decoration with natural furniture or wood.
Another fantastic colour scheme for use with micro cement floors is neutral colour schemes. Dark neutrals offer subtle doses of colour, while lighter neutrals can help create a more spacious and airy feeling in small spaces, so be sure to consider the size of the room and the lighting in this regard.
If you prefer a cool and relaxing environment, consider combining the floor with soft pastel tones. The shades of mint, bluish-gray or pastel pink are good options, especially if they are combined with neutral schemes.
