Hello, it’s Lee Fisher here from LDF Microcement. We’re passionate about creating stunning, functional spaces with microcement, and one of our favourite applications is in the heart of the home – the kitchen.
Kitchens are more than just a place for meal preparation; they’re the hub of a home, where we gather, share stories, and create memories over food and laughter. But they’re also high-traffic areas that need to withstand spills, splashes, heat, and heavy usage, demanding materials that are as robust as they are beautiful.
That’s where microcement comes into play. At LDF Microcement, we provide expert microcement kitchen installations. From seamless kitchen floors and splashbacks to worktops and kitchen islands, we use microcement to transform kitchens into sleek, modern, and highly practical spaces.
With microcement, the design possibilities are limitless. Its adaptability makes it suitable for any style, be it contemporary minimalist, rustic chic, or a traditional cosy kitchen. No matter your vision, we can turn it into reality.

Pros and Cons of Microcement in Kitchens
Before deciding to go with microcement for your kitchen, it’s essential to understand its advantages and potential drawbacks. Let’s take a closer look.
- Durability: Kitchens are high-traffic areas that endure a lot. Microcement is a robust material that can withstand the wear and tear of daily use. It is resistant to heat, scratches, and impact, making it an excellent choice for kitchen floors, worktops, and splashbacks.
- Hygienic and Easy to Clean: Microcement’s seamless surface leaves no room for joints where dirt or bacteria can accumulate. This makes it a hygienic choice for kitchens. Also, cleaning is a breeze; all you need is a soft cloth and a mild cleaner.
- Design Versatility: Microcement comes in a range of colours and finishes. Whether you’re after a glossy, luxurious look, a concrete-style industrial feel, or a warm, matte finish, microcement offers unlimited design options.
- Application: Microcement application requires experience and a high level of skill. A poorly executed job can lead to cracks and other issues over time. That’s why it’s important to hire a trusted professional like LDF Microcement.
- Cost: The initial cost of microcement can be higher than some traditional materials. But considering its durability and the potential savings on long-term maintenance, it often proves to be cost-effective.
- Maintenance: While microcement is easy to clean, it does require sealing to maintain its resistance to stains and water. Depending on the usage, periodic resealing may be necessary.
When weighing these factors, many homeowners find that the unique benefits of microcement make it an ideal choice for their kitchen renovation.
