Do you bring yourself to know microcement colours?
Microcement colours: Beyond greys and white
If we make the question about, which microcement colours do you believe are most used to decorate different areas? Surely, greys and white would be the first colours that would come to your mind.
This is because those colours are directly linked with the cement strictly speaking, and, you are not wrong, due to those microcement colours are the most used. However, microcement colour array goes beyond and it will strongly depend on clients taste and preference or the decorative style where it is going to be applied.
Putting all this together, from CEMENTEC we want to face this current topic offering what we called 4 keys to choose microcement colours.
4 keys to choose microcement ready to use colours
What should we have into consideration? Is there a specific colour per area? No, there is not. However, we should make a prior analysis of the features of the area which is going to be decorated to choose the most suitable microcement colour array

Which type of light illuminate your room?
Is our room to be renovated exposed to a natural light or not? Is it a room with too many points of artificial light or does it only have those that are necessary?
If we have an area exposed to the sunlight at different times of the day, we recommend the use of dark colours or tones, on the other hand, if it is a room with intermittent natural light, it is better to use less saturated colours and therefore, more faint tones.
When it comes to artificial light, everything will depend on the type of bulb or the colour of light it emits. For example, if you are going to use cold LED colours in the room, you have to take into account that these reduce the intensity of the colours. On the contrary, the warm LED lights will accentuate and enhance the colours of the microcement.
Use 60-30-10 rule when it comes to choose colours
Do you know the 60-30-10 rule? This bases its theory on the recommendation to use a maximum of 3 colours when decorating a space, being able to include a fourth colour on rare occasions as long as one of them is considered a neutral colour.
So how would the 60-30-10 rule be applied in regards to the colour range of microcement? Taking a room in its entirety as 100%, the 60% of said space must correspond to a base colour, the 30% to a complementary colour to the first and the remaining 10%, to a colour that accentuates or that stand out from the rest.
Don’t you find it really interesting?
How big is the room or room where the renovation is to be carried out?
Is the area to be renovated large or small? The dimensions of the room are another of the factors that will mark one type of choice or another.
While using dark tones reduces the space considerably, there is the trick of using microcement in neutral or light colours to favour the visual amplitude of the space in those small rooms.
Likewise, let us not ignore what was said in the previous points about the properties of microcement when it comes to reflecting or enhancing natural light, thus making it an ideal material when adapting to the specific circumstances that we require.
Colours depending on the environment or the quarters to change
Each area or room requires a different style or application. It will not be the same to decorate a bedroom than a kitchen or a bathroom. Nor it will be the same, applying this material to our home than doing it to our offices. Don’t you think that each room requires its own consideration?
To illustrate, in the case of bedrooms, we recommend the use of warm and soft colours to create an atmosphere of relaxation, rest, tranquillity or calm.
If we think of a children’s playroom, at CEMENTEC we would opt for more intense and vivid colours, to give strength and joy to the room.
Finally, for offices, companies or for those more industrial styles, we cannot ignore the greyish or black tones that usually combine and stand out with other more remarkable colours in the room which provides a more balanced personality.
