For so many of us nowadays, the kitchen is the heart of our home. How do you create a true statement in your kitchen – an attention-grabbing centrepiece? Simple – by using microcement to create a sleek and striking worktop or island. Your choice of worktop can be crucial to the overall effect you’re looking for – it can define the space. Microcement is so sought-after thanks to its dramatic contemporary look. In design terms, microcement has the almost unique ability to look fantastic in sleek, modern kitchens as well as more traditional ones. It’s textured, tactile and durable. Few materials do it better than microcement. You’ll spend so much time in your kitchen – why not make it a place you’re proud of? A microcement worktop can transform your kitchen from a functional room into a true statement. Microcement also brings the benefits of being extremely hardwearing, practical and stain-resistant. We have microcement worktop solutions for both indoor and outdoor use.
Looking for Truly Bespoke Worktops?
Your local Approved Installer will work closely with you from design right through to the final polish and seal to deliver exactly what you’re looking for. Microcement worktops can be tailor-made to your space, worktops can be built in marine ply so they can be it can be shaped to the exact dimensions of your space, and then coated in Microcement, often without the need for joins. We also offer a huge range of colours to choose from and can incorporate sinks, draining boards, upstands and splashbacks.
Sinks, Drainage Grooves and Cut Outs
You’ll need to build worktops around hobs, cookers and other appliances to make sure your worktops run seamlessly and neatly thoughout the area. You can even seamlessly integrate sinks by firmly fixing an undermounted sink to the worktop before applying microcement over it. Alternatively, you can include cut outs for undermounted sinks if you prefer. Drainage grooves can but routed out of the ply before microcement is applied too.
Do Concrete Worktops Stain?
Untreated concrete is highly porous, and stains readily. The microcement that we recommend using for worktops, however, is completely waterproof and is combined with strong purpose-made sealers. This makes them not just durable and waterproof, but stain-resistant too.
Are Microcement Worktops Hygienic?
The kitchen needs to be a hygienic space too. Microcement worktops are highly bacteria-resistant, thanks to our particular sealing method and the absence of joins as well as hypoallergenic. They’re also incredibly easy to keep clean because they’re completely seamless.
Installing Microcement Worktops
When creating surfaces for kitchens or dining tables it’s vital to have a quality microcement and to closely follow the installation process. With the right prep work, trowel technique and process, we can guarantee you a beautiful, durable and resilient surface. Our microcement has been tested according to EN standards, and consistently demonstrates a level of resilience and durability that’s far higher than most natural woods.
How much do Microcement Worktops cost?
We’ll happily provide an estimate for materials and put you in touch with a local installer. All we need to give you an initial estimate though is the dimensions and the location of the work, so please get in touch.
Are Microcement Worktops hardwearing?
Our microcement worktops have excellent heat resistance. Pans straight from an oven, stove or hob could leave a mark however, so we advise not to put them directly onto the work surfaces. With basic care you can maintain the look of your microcement worktop for years. Bear in mind that like all natural stone, concrete acquires a patina – a natural weathering – that occurs over time, adding depth and character.
