Floors vs Walls
Sphere8 are able to install both poured floors and hand-applied walls, and both materials work in different ways to create a concrete bathroom effect. Our wall finishes are trowelled by hand, which creates movement in the final surface. This texture is reminiscent of concrete and creates a subtle variation in colour. When applied in one of our cool greys this recreates a polished concrete bathroom wall. Our floors are universally flat and smooth, but the movement in colour comes from the dual-pigment build-up that is available in any colour. Our collection of Metals are most reminiscent of polished concrete - whether it's a pale Carbon Steel or a darker Zinc, Pewter or Graphite.
Although our floors and our wall finishes are different textures, they work perfectly together to create a seamless concrete-effect finish. The smooth poured resin floors contrast with the rougher texture of the walls, but the colours can be carefully selected so as to be almost identical. If you would like to have them the same colour please discuss with your sales consultant, who can advise on this.
We offer over 100 wall colours, including everything from taupe to turquoise. For creating a concrete-effect bathroom we specifically recommend one of our Cool Greys or even a couple of the Dusty Blues range - cool, neutral, but strong enough to create an impact in even the smallest of spaces. These fluctuate in different lights and can come out as remarkably earthy or light and cool depending on each different space.
