The combination of microcement and wood in bathrooms has numerous positive factors. First and foremost, ready-to-use microcement stands out for its versatility, as it can be used on both walls and floors, allowing for a wide range of possibilities when creating designs and finishes.

At the same time, wood is a material inherently associated with warmth and elegance. It can be used in different tones, allowing for playing with contrasts and achieving a unique atmosphere. Wood can be found in various elements of the home, such as mirror frames, shelves, and other furniture pieces.

Therefore, the combination of microcement and wood creates a modern and rustic ambiance simultaneously, which is ideal for those who seek eclectic decoration. But if you want to know why microcement and natural wood are the perfect duo, don’t miss this article we have for you.

Next, let’s analyze the different options available when combining these elements in the bathroom.

Microcement and wood on walls

An interesting option is to use ready-to-use microcement on the walls of the microcement shower area or on the rest of the bathroom walls, combined with a wooden wall on one side.

Applying microcement on walls provides resistance, waterproofing, and easy maintenance. At the same time, wood adds warmth and elegance to the environment and can also be used for mirror frames, shelves, and other decorative elements.

Microcement and wood on floors

Similarly, another effective option is to apply microcement on the shower floor or coat built-in bathtubs with microcement and combine it with a wooden floor in the rest of the bathroom.

The resulting modern atmosphere is very interesting. Considering the qualities of microcement mentioned earlier, its resistance to direct contact with water is excellent. Wood, on the other hand, can also be used for baseboards, stairs and other decorative elements.

Microcement and wood in furniture or decorative elements

Furthermore, as we have mentioned in the previous two points, the combination of wood and microcement is not limited to walls and floors alone. For example, wooden furniture can be paired with microcement countertops, or vice versa. Microcement shelves or drawers with wooden details, or the other way around, are also possible.

Overall, this combination creates a rustic-modern character that fits perfectly with eclectic decoration.
