Wood and concrete. Microcement floor in the kitchen
In the previous video, Borys showed how he made a microcement floor in a kitchen open to the living room. Today is the time to present the end result of his work! The combination of a wooden parquet with a concrete microcement floor looks just great. Just look! (don’t forget to switch on subtitles – English and Spanish available, as always).
Wood and concrete on the floor – how to combine them?
Wood in the interior design is an offer for all those who appreciate high-quality natural materials and expect durability and resistance. It adds coziness to the interior. Properly cared for, it will serve for many years as it can be renewed many times, which significantly extends its life. Decorative concrete, in turn, and its microcement variety in particular, is the perfect choice for lovers of modern elegance and minimalism. Microcement is increasingly replacing traditional tiles and begins to reign in kitchens opened to the living room. Why? Well, microcement has the most important advantages of tiles – is water resistance and easy to clean, but it has no disadvantages of tiles – it does not require joints and creates an elegant, uniform floor surface. The combination of microcement and wooden parquet also looks very aesthetic and does not ruin the harmony of the interior. There is only one connection line between two materials instead of several dozen, which visually enlarges the room. It is enough to fill the dilatation between the wood and the microcement with an expansion mass, which looks much better than, for example, aluminum joining strips.
How else to combine wood with microcement?
Concrete and wood can be combined in different ways. You can refresh old wooden parquet and finish the walls with microcement. A wooden worktop in the kitchen will look good against a wall covered with microcement instead of tiles. On the other hand, wooden furniture looks amazing on a concrete floor.
