Concrete & cement finishes

The trend towards concrete & cement finishes looks set to stay with the use of matt & textured cement surfaces prevalent on kitchen floors, walls, cabinetry and bench tops. The appeal of this classically cool and industrial material is in its modern aesthetic which pairs beautifully with warm timber and pops of colour.

One of our Italian suppliers, Arrital Cucine has released a fantastic new material called ‘Micromalta’ which is available as a door and bench top finish on their AK_05 kitchen collection. It is a light-weight cement, troweled on by hand and when set, has the appearance of concrete plaster. Available in several different colours it is a pretty exciting new addition to the Arrital portfolio.

Together with the surface treatment ‘Fenix NTM®’ Arrital now offer a multitude of different matt and tactile finishes which look fabulous on their kitchen ranges. For further information on the design possibilities using Micromalta or Fenix NTM®, please contact one of our designers or take a look at the Arrital website here.
