#TeamPuti and #TeamKahoy top the searches and tags for the super popular Home Buddies Facebook Page. These highlight the minimalist, Scandinavian, or cottage-core trends that have been on the rise for the past few years. If you’re an avid lurker in the FB page like me, you’ve probably noticed that the industrial finish has also been gaining some popularity recently. Is it going to be called #TeamCement? #TeamIndustrial? #TeamBato? I have no idea. What I am sure of is that you can achieve your industrial #homeinspo look with Konstrukt Construction Chemicals. Read more ahead to learn how to get that modern concrete finish for your space!
Modern Concrete Finish for Interiors
The bare cement trend started many, many years ago. I first started noticing it whenever I visited cafes for my caffeine fixes. These popular joints would pair an industrial, cement-finished wall with warm wooden tables and chairs, and lush green plants everywhere. Why is it still so popular? For one thing, it’s very easy to match. Can’t seem to decide what color to go for in your home interiors? Why not choose no color and be done with it?
However, it’s not as simple as just telling your contractor to stop at the cement stage of construction. We paint over our walls for a reason! It’s a means of not just beautifying your space with a pop of color, but it also protects your walls as well! No worries, if you don’t wanna paint over your walls, we get it. cries in Boysen paint** But, we have the thing just for you, Konstrukt Lunar Series!
Konstrukt Lunar Series
Konstrukt Lunar Series is a collection of 9 faux cement finishes. And, you can achieve these 9 looks just by using regular Konstrukt products from our Permaplast line. Explore all these 9 finishes in this link. Though, if we’re talking about the quintessential smooth, low-luster cement finish we see in a lot of cafes and resort, go with the Kaiser finish.
As I mentioned earlier, we paint walls not just to make our homes more colorful, but to protect the substrates as well. If that’s the case, how are we going to protect the Kaiser finish, you ask? Good question. Don’t forget to put on coats of Acrytex Sealer and Matte Shield on the cured Kaiser finish. This locks in and seals the finish over so it can put up with the wear and tear of your household activities. I discussed this in detail in the article embedded above so just read through it if you want to know more!
