Whenever we think of decorating a house or a specific space in our home, we think a lot about furniture and accessories, but rarely do we stop to take into account what these elements contain, that is, the walls and floors. Decoration fans should be aware that it is of little use to have a trendy sofa if then the walls of our house or the floor are dusty. A good option to keep them looking good is to resort to coatings.
An interesting novelty in the world of wall tiles is the International MTC marble, which reproduces the striking stratified relief of the natural one while avoiding its drawbacks. In this sense, we recommend its Ballet series in its white, sand, natural, Calacatta Oro and Extreme colors for use on both walls and interior floors.
Importance of finishes in the home
There are endless materials that allow wall, ceiling or floor coverings to be to your liking. But outside of that, the finishes in the home give a unique and special style to your house, here is its importance.
They also have the function of protecting all base materials or gray work as well as providing beauty, aesthetics and comfort. To reach its final finish it is almost always necessary to first use other so-called intermediate finishes.
Take into consideration that your house is synonymous with a life project in which you will live for years, and therefore the ideal thing is that it is to your total liking, just as you have imagined. In which you are idealizing your home, think about every detail that is also adjusted to your budget.
If you are going to buy a house, and the materials are chosen by the developer, you need to make sure that they are quality materials and suppliers, the ones that are going to finish your house. At International MTC they are aware of trends in construction finishes, and in their housing projects they make use of them to deliver quality and functionality to the client in construction.
The importance of floors in interior design
Many times the floor is not given the importance it deserves when one considers the definition of the interior design of a floor. Often times, we think more about other elements that go on top of it, even what to put on the walls. We take it as something since it largely determines all the rest. If we think about it, it is a large surface that impacts the visual perspective of the space, sensory scope and conditions the whole. Therefore, your good choice is of vital importance for the success of the project.
Any flooring should meet the appropriate characteristics for its intended use, as well as an aesthetic purpose in line with the interior design proposal. All this, taking into account the preferences of the client or end user. As is evident, a pavement change is not a superfluous, simple or economic action. It implies a cost, as well as a considerable transfer for any space. It is not something that we can renew at will, so it is better to make a well-considered decision, thinking about its validity over the years.
Certain floors well accept a diversity of styles that make our decision not so dramatic as a determination of options. Although, as we have advanced, by surface and impact on the sensations of its users, its impact is of great importance in the whole. That is why we should take into account different aspects such as its resistance, durability, material, insulation, format or tonality.
Wooden floors: synonymous with comfort and home
The material that is being imposed in all houses is wood. The wooden floors adapt to all styles and exist in a multitude of shades. Natural wood would be optimal, although for economic reasons or if we prefer not to observe less wear, we have laminate or synthetic options that achieve a good result with greater resistance and less care. The choice of material and tonality will be decisive for its best versatility with the different elements. Often in our projects, we use the same parquet as wood that is used for a tabletop or customizing a pendant lamp, maximizing the harmony of materials.
Porcelain flooring: resistance and functionality
If a type of flooring has experienced exponential growth in sales, as well as in formats and finishes, this is porcelain flooring. The technology applied to a traditional type of production has resulted in very light, resistant formats and in a multitude of measures, some of up to 3 meters in length that reduce the number of joints giving a very spectacular appearance in large spaces. If wood will be the protagonist of the furniture in our house, it is a perfect option for the flooring in order not to condition contrasts of different woods and not saturate textures. On the other hand, its conditions make it a suitable material for professional spaces with a high number of people. The great variety of finishes and their high similarity of the finish with natural materials allow us to place them as one of the alternatives to take more into account.
Cements and concrete: industrial look on the rise
Finally, we highlight options more typical of the industrial field that we increasingly find in the residential field. They can already be more refined options such as microcement floors, which in addition to being an economical coating alternative that allows the pre-existing floor to be maintained on many occasions, allows us to add color and even water to certain floors, offering a very remarkable aesthetic impact. For large open spaces, polished concrete is a very groundbreaking option that will become more and more common, either by taking advantage of the existing one or by pouring new pavement.
