How to use Microcement: the benefits of the most popular material for your Interior Decoration.

Everybody is talking about microcement! It has definitely become one of the main protagonists in the world of interior design and one of the most requested material by clients who decide to renovate their home. As the popularity of this strong, durable and versatile material is rising, discover the advantages of using microcement (also known as micro-concrete) and the best interior design styles to use it with.

When cement started being used to build industrial spaces, little did we know that microcement would become so popular among interior decorators and one of the most trendy materials to be used in home renovations. It is a highly durable material that can be used to cover floors, walls and also furniture to create a continuous cladding that will stand the test of time. However, the reason why interior designers fell in love with it is its versatility factor and the creative freedom it gives. Microcement turned out to be a decorative covering that can be used in different colours and to design and decorate with virtually any interior design style: Nordic, industrial, minimalist, contemporary, modern, rustic, boho, Scandinavian and the list goes on...


It is a cladding material composed of a mixture of polymers that looks like a continuous layer of minimum thickness. Thanks to its resins it becomes so flexible that it can easily adhere to almost any surface from floors and walls to cement and paving stones.


A home renovation can be expensive and microcement is a very cost-effective material because its main advantage is that by covering surfaces so perfectly, you won't have to spend a lot of money removing old floors and tiles. For example, if you are renovating a bathroom, you can use a non-slip finish for your microcement and easily cover the bathtub and the sink. As an impermeable material, it will prevent your bathroom from becoming damp.


It is one of the best and easiest way to add character and personality to a space thanks to its versatility. Your interior decorator can help you chose the right colour, depth and finish for your microcement depending on the style of your home interior. As a continuous layer, this material is easy to clean and maintain. Microcement is also an extremely safe material as it is impermeable, washable and non-slippery. Last but not least it is very easy to apply. There are endless possibilities when it comes to decorating with microcement and despite its unfinished look, it will add a natural and organic feel to the interior decoration and architecture of your living room.


When you buy a home in Fuerteventura or if you decide to renovate your property, it can be difficult to choose a specific interior design style. This is where microcement can make your life easier and be the trait d'union regardless of the decorative style and furniture you want for your home.

Nordic Style: using microcement will accentuate the typical purity and simplicity of the Nordic interior design. White walls, modern furniture, natural materials like wood, cotton and linen and the importance of natural light will find a common ground in microcement that in turn, will make the living space look more open and spacious. Neutral colours are also typical of this style and microcement will work perfectly with these subtle tones. Even in a simple and elegant black and white Nordic interior, this material will be the perfect base to start designing and decorating.

Contemporary Style: this style is all about textures and sophistication. A continuous microcement flooring will add an interesting modern layer to a contemporary interior where you can add different styles of furniture, including both vintage and minimalist furnishing. It is the best way to create a space full of contrasts and personality.

Industrial Style: an industrial interior design style and microcement are a match made in heaven because this material fits in the typical architectural style that includes black elements, exposed bricks, metal and copper. Covering your floor with microcement can also help accentuate the natural light in your industrial living space and make it look and feel warmer.

Minimalist Interior: another beautiful way you could use microcement is with a minimalist approach. By reducing colours, decorative elements and materials to a minimum, a microcement floor will flow perfectly in such a white and neautral living space. Just like minimalism seeks to open up the space as much as possible, microcement and its continuous and uniform surfaces will be the best ally to achieve this result.
