Are you trying to decide what material to use for your home remodel? Today, we're going to tell you about microcement, its characteristics, and what parts of the home it's good in.

Microcement is a thin coating made up of cement and various polymers. It’s also becoming a major trend in both interior and exterior home decor. People use it to re-do their floors, walls, and even get custom furniture made with it. It’s tough, easy on the eye, and has lots of different color variations.

Using microcement in your home is also great because it goes really well with just about all colors and materials.

If you don’t, it will probably end up looking “cold.” Always remember to balance the colors and materials in a space.
