Wall decoration in the kitchen should be very thoughtful, after all, it is not only about the aesthetic qualities of such decoration, but above all about the practical dimension. Both the kitchen and the bathroom are a considerable expense, so you renovate these rooms once every 10 or 20 years. Therefore, it's best to pay a little attention to the design at the outset, as well as to the selection of durable materials that will be on the floor and kitchen walls.
The most vulnerable to contamination and damage are the parts of the walls between the furniture and at the kitchen countertops. In these areas, ordinary paint is a material that is definitely insufficient and quickly loses its appearance and durability. Fortunately, there are many other solutions that will maintain a long life and give an excellent visual effect. One of them is architectural concrete - a material enjoying - due to its numerous qualities - increasing popularity.
Concrete in the kitchen can come in two forms. The first is architectural concrete - slabs of various sizes, textures and shades. Such a solution is extremely durable and elegant, and, most importantly, very easy to keep clean. Simply wipe the slabs with a damp cloth to remove any stains. Another solution is structural concrete, which is applied similarly to gypsum. It is relatively easy to lay and resistant to damage, which makes it increasingly used in interior design, and due to its aesthetic qualities makes additional wall decorations in the kitchen no longer necessary.
Modern kitchens offer a wide range of design possibilities. Recently popular in them are glass panels, which are mounted on special brackets to the wall. Panels come in various colors and fancy designs. The most convenient, in terms of cleaning, are those in a milky shade, with a delicate pattern. In addition, many manufacturers of household appliances produce glass panels with a pattern on the equipment, for example, on the hood canopy.
Wall decorations in the kitchen can take on a completely natural look, thanks to the use of brick, wood or stone. However, be sure to properly waterproof such materials - otherwise they can quickly deteriorate and become damp. Such a solution will fit perfectly into kitchens decorated in modern, Provençal or Scandinavian style. If you do not have the opportunity to use natural materials, you can use tiles that are confusingly similar to brick or wood. In addition, tiles are very easy to lay, and, above all, much more hygienic.
Concrete in the kitchen, brick or wood are, of course, not the only fashionable recent additions. Recently, a huge hit is blackboard paint. Although it does not protect the walls from dirt in any way, it can be an interesting addition to white tiles. Thanks to painting with this paint, the wall turns into a blackboard, on which you can freely draw and erase inscriptions and various pictures.
Modern kitchen arrangements rely on a combination of functionality and good taste. In such rooms everything fits together perfectly and everything has its designated place. This makes the use of such a room comfortable and cooking much more pleasant. Thoughtfully designed, modern kitchen will not only be practical, but will also delight with its appearance for many years.
Among other things, architectural concrete is used to produce slabs that are suitable for use as cladding for walls and floors. The dimensions of these panels are:
→ 60×60 cm;
→ 90×60 cm;
→ 120×60 cm;
→ 120×120 cm.
Plates in these dimensions are the most readily available. However, we can order the manufacture of plates in other sizes as well. These are the so-called flexi boards. They differ from standard ones not only in dimensions, but also in shape and color. The plates have different thicknesses. We can buy plates with thicknesses of: 15, 18, 20 millimeters. These slabs can be laid on walls and floors. In kitchens, slabs that have already been treated with an impregnating agent at the production stage to protect them from moisture will work best. If everything is done according to art, the concrete wall in the kitchen will please the eye for many years.
Concrete in the kitchen has a wide range of applications - in addition to decorating the walls, it is also used to make kitchen sinks and kitchen countertops. They are protected with special impregnants that are approved for contact with food. Such a countertop is therefore not only very durable, but also safe. It is also resistant to dirt, including greasy stains. It is easy to keep both countertops and concrete wall or floor coverings clean. It is also possible to make kitchen furniture out of architectural concrete. Concrete in the kitchen is a whole lot of possibilities - ask us for details.
Concrete facings, countertops or furniture are most often encountered in modern kitchens decorated in an industrial style. But concrete in the kitchen looks great in combination with other natural materials, including wood. Hence, concrete elements will also work well in kitchens decorated in a rustic style. The grayness of concrete should be broken by choosing accessories in intense colors: black or red. Concrete in the kitchen is a hot interior trend. This is a material that is gaining popularity in our country. It is very decorative, and perfectly suits not only modern rooms. Durability is just one of its advantages.
