There’s an excellent new espresso bar in Barry at the Pumphouse.
Apart from the great coffee they also serve craft beer and cocktails, so we will certainly be regular visitors.
On this project we helped with the construction of a concrete style bar top and a large concrete style sharing table. Using Solacir® Interiors Microscreed as a lightweight overlay it is possible to construct a table or bartop out of timber and encapsulate it in a concrete finish, ready for polishing and sealing.
Once polished the clear polyurethane sealers are applied to the surface which is ideal for a working countertop that will be exposed to spills from coffee, wine etc
Deciding to use a concrete floor or surfacing for your home or business can have many benefits: it’s stylish, long-lasting, practical and hypoallergenic. Here are our top tips on choosing the right concrete flooring for you:
Do your research There are a multitude of poured concrete floors out there and it’s important to select the right one for your family, home or customers. Make sure you take the time to investigate all of your options and talk directly to the professionals before making any decisions.
Know the risks Polished concrete floors can often require maintenance and care to keep them looking their best. Spills need to be cleaned up quickly or there’s a risk of staining. Many polished concrete floors are prone to cracking and discolouration, so consider investing in a Microscreed option for a sustainable product, which is more suitable for home flooring or bathroom surfaces.
Style Counts Concrete floors are a stylish and modern feature for homes and commercial buildings alike. As with all interior design, concrete flooring will look best when it complements your existing surroundings. With something like a poured resin floor the colour options are truly limitless, so you can create the right style for you.
Go Green Sustainability is everything nowadays. Not only does thinking about the longevity of your floor mean that you can plan ahead, it also means you can save money, time and energy whilst contributing towards a greener and more sustainable future. Unlike timer, tiles or carpet, at the end of its finished flooring life, a concrete floor is part of the structure so there is no residual waste to remove. A Microscreed option won’t even use any harsh chemicals, as it’s water-based.
Safety First Whether you’re concerned for your family or your customers make sure that the floor you choose will stay clean, safe and smooth. Most poured resin and Microscreed flooring is seamless, hypoallergenic and waterproof, but explore all the options available with this in mind before making your choice.
Just in case you ever wondered what a poured floor looks like when its being poured, here is our latest duo floor being poured over the weekend.
This is the aliphatic polyurethane base material being poured on to a cement based screed that we primed with an epoxy the previous day. Once this material levels out and cures we can seal the surface and hand over the floor.
A beautiful house that deserves a beautiful floor, hopefully we will have some finished photos to show you soon.
One of our microscreed floors features in the ‘Flouro and Flora’ article in this month’s Elle Decoration magazine.
It is used as part of a ‘neutral backdrop’ to show off some inspiring flower displays.
The microscreed floor we installed at this location had a 5% stone pigment and a matt aspect.
Solacir Interiors’ microscreed floors are a great alternative to polished concrete and can be installed on existing concrete, screed, tiled or even timber floors to give an authentic and unique concrete finish in a variety of colours and a selection of gloss, satin or matt finishes.
Remind me why did we call this product Reflection ?
Our speciality resin Reflection flooring is a unique product that not only looks amazing, but will stay looking amazing. This resin has unique properties which means it will resist scratches better than any other gloss resin floor.
Our resins are great for making floors, but sometimes the genius within us means we have to try something different, like these bar stools.
These are individually painted by hand using our high performance resins to give a unique look. The results are spectacular ! It goes to show how versatile the product is and what you can create with a little imagination and know how.
