Bathrooms and wet rooms are where the qualities of microcement really come into their own. Because microcement is waterproof and can be applied continuously across a number of different surfaces, you won't need any joins or grout lines, making it super hygienic and easy to clean.
You won't even need to do any special prep in wet rooms like tanking them out, all you need is to plasterboard right down to the floor & give them a skim, make sure there's no movement in your surfaces and let us take care of the rest.
It's no surprise that we've seen a huge rise in the number of clients who are using microcement in their bathrooms. And with 40 colours to choose from, the possibilities are endless. See the colours for yourself on our Colour Options page.
Does Microcement Stain?
Not our microcement! We use a product in all our bathrooms that has been specifically designed for use in wet rooms. It's completely waterproof even before it's sealed so watermarks are never an issue. You can even leave wet bottles on the surface and it won't affect the product, sounds obvious but trust us, there's very few microcement brands who can make this claim.
Can you Microcement over Shower Trays?
Yes, we can. It's easier if you buy and install a shower tray that is suitable for vinyl floors, it'll need cementing firmly in place and then plasterboard and plaster right down to the tray. That way we can install microcement seamlessly from the walls to the tray without the need for silicone or any other type of join.
There's a whole load more detail on preparing bathrooms for microcement in our Surface Prep Guidelines, or feel free to give us a call and discuss the specifics of your project in person.
Rest assured, we only ever use suitably non-slip products in bathrooms, it's been tested and approved to CE standards.
Can you Microcement over Tiles?
By microcementing directly onto tiles, we can give your bathroom a completely new look without the mess and hassle of having to take the existing tiles out. And if you've ever tried to remove tiles, you'll really appreciate this one. All we need to check is that the tiles are well glued down so there's no chance of movement and we'll go straight over them.
Can I combine Microcement with Tiles?
Absolutely, this is one of our favourite looks. We'll just need to work closely with your main contractor to make sure the levels are right before they start tiling and then you can move seamlessly from tiles to microcement in whatever way you choose.
How Much Do Microcement Bathrooms Cost?
The price will depend on the size of the area, this is because we'll be on site for the same length of time whether it's 10 or 50m2. We're more than happy to provide an estimate with absolutely no obligation, just get in touch and we'll work out an estimate for you, no problem.
How long does it take to Install Microcement in a Bathroom?
Although they're often one of the smaller rooms in the house, bathrooms can be quite intricate, so work on the basis of the bathroom being out of action for 7 days whilst we complete the process.
