5 reasons why you should consider opting for a microcement pool
With the summer heat a pool is a blessing, an authentic oasis within the city. It provides refreshment and helps enjoying a much more pleasant summer. A pool surrounded by a wonderful garden with palm trees and sand or another simpler and austere made of noble and natural materials. Tiles are already outdated, now the trend, whether it is a private pool or a public establishment, is microcement.
Discover five reasons why microcement is ideal for your swimming pool.
1. Infinite colors and finishes options
The microcement can be combined with infinite pigments so you can choose the color that best suits you. And although there is a color chart, each pool has a unique texture finish that also influences the perception of color. The microcement can be: smooth, glossy, satin, matt, more or less uniform, etc. This range of options allows you to create a 100% customized and very personal pool.
The microcement is such a versatile material that it can cover any shape creating swimming pools with the most fantastic shapes – with rounded or straight curbs, with beaches, benches, steps etc.
