Not only is the kitchen a place where we prepare meals. Kitchen is the center of our home – it is central to modern family life, they say the best parties happen here and it is a place where we like to sit over tea and cookies and chatting with family. It’s a center for both entertainment and work. That is why we put so much effort into beautifully decorating our kitchen. We want it to be stylish, unique and timeless, but functional too.
Recently, there has been a strong trend in the use of microcement in kitchen interiors. This is because it is so versatile that it will work out practically everywhere – on the floor, on walls and as a finish of countertops.
Countertop where we prepare meals is the key element of every kitchen. It must be resistant to moisture, dirt, heat and drastic temperature changes, as well as to scratches. Concrete countertops are not only visually appealing, but very practical. They provide the opportunity to create a perfectly smooth, durable, easy-to-maintain and ultra-hygienic surface. Thanks to its properties, FESTFLOOR Life microcement is ideal for this type of solution.
