5.- Textured ceramic

It is gaining more and more popularity because the designs and quality that are currently available make it not only an economical finish but also very customizable.

One of our favorite combinations for flooring is cement mosaic and wood. This is a unique amalgam because it allows you to combine very aesthetic patterns and at the same time great functionality. For example, you can place the mosaic tiles in the places that are more about to get dirty, so you avoid that the areas where the wood remains end up dirty.
8.- Apparent concrete
The apparent concrete is a finish of a very modernist trend that consists of leaving the concrete of the wall exposed, either in its direct form or with a special polishing. Its neutral tone makes it perfect to combine with other elements and contrasting materials, such as wood or mosaic. It is perfect for walls and high ceilings.
Letting the brick of the wall be at the same time the finish is an idea that combines originality and warmth in any environment, but many times the wall is made of another material. In this case, you can use a coating of “exposed brick” or apparent. As you can see, they give a touch of warmth and sobriety to any space.
10.- Glass block
