Concrete and microcement bedroom inspirations you will fall in love with
The bedroom is our refuge, it is here where we find peace amid the chaos we encounter in our everyday lives. This space should be harmonious, conducive to silence and calming down, so it is so important for the bedroom to be designed according to our needs, comfortable, yet pleasing to the eye and stylish.
We have written a lot about the use of architectural concrete in interior decoration. Designers are most likely to use it in bathrooms and in the most representative room, that is in the living room. The idea to use concrete also in the bedroom may seem too avant-garde, and the interior with the use of concrete cold and little cozy. We will try to prove that it is not. Let’s start with microcement bedroom.
Microcement can be also used as wall cladding. Not only it is stylish and beautiful but also very practical – by applying it, we save lots of time and money as we don’t have to paint walls every few years or remove stubborn stains. The color does not fade, does not turn yellow, and any dirt comes off using water and gentle detergent. Microcement can be used on all walls, but when our bedroom is small, it is safer to use it on one wall, preferably the one on which the headboard of the bed will be placed.
Concrete wall panels
When deciding to use concrete in your bedroom you might consider choosing concrete panels designed to be adhered to walls of any new or retrofit construction project.
Panels are 1-2 cm thick and vary in size and porosity. The most interesting effect is obtained using the most porous panels resembling raw concrete.
Concrete in the bedroom: microcement floor, concrete floor
Microcement which is a very thin finishing decorative coating, works perfectly on the floor. Although it is only a few millimeters thick, it is very resistant and due to the lack of joints it is also easy to maintain.
Another microcement’s advantage is its high thermal conductivity when installed over underfloor heating. Say goodbye to cold floors in winter! Microcement floors can be of any color, but of course interior designers and architects grey is the king. For this we can finish the matt finish or high gloss depending on the sealer we use.
