Trends in cement: kitchens made of aesthetic material
Wednesday February 21st, 2018 · PORCELANOSA Grupo
The interior design and architecture sector has banked on one of the simplest materials to create exclusive atmospheres. A paradox which makes the finish inspired by traditional cement become the best option when creating spaces with an industrial minimal or rustic touch. We are dealing with a material which offers a huge number of applications and finishes, therefore, it effortlessly meets the requirements of different decorative styles.
The kitchen is one of the spaces where that kind of trend can be found. An atmosphere characterised by the use of materials such as wood and glass, and which is now renewed through: worktops, fronts, finishes and floor tiles, which are both inspired by, and made with: concrete, cement, microcement or similar materials.
This casual ecru finish plays a major role in one of the most outstanding kitchens by Gamadecor: E2.70 Cement Gout. A structure which includes fronts in a cement-effect finish, which provides the set with uniqueness and style. This texture, combined with a wall tile in white, creates a minimal atmosphere full of personality and character.
One of the best solutions when achieving an industrial-styled kitchen is to include a microcement flooring. As a benchmark regarding this type of material, Urbatek offers its MORSE, COVER, ON and CORE collections, each of them with touches, finishes and formats which meet the requirements of any aesthetic functional need.
CORE, the latest collection to be included into the cement-effect porcelain tiles, shows these types of aged surfaces in a canvas full of variations, which stands out because of the fine fading colour effects.
Available in a wide range of tones, it is offered in the bright CORE White; the warm CORE Beige; the most neutral option, CORE Grey and the darkest tone, CORE Coal.
Additionally, even though a natural aesthetics is sought after, at least one coat of varnish will be necessary in order to avoid the cement being stained by its use, and this must be taken into account. This varnishing must be done annually so as to maintain the waterproof surface.
