Tadelakt is becoming increasingly popular around the world. Experts who watch home trends believe that Tadelakt will become the latest development for bathroom design and probably living rooms as well. It’s no surprise due to the many properties Tadelakt holds. For example, it is a natural and ecological product that produces a luxurious and decorative wall finish. Moreover, its waterproof seamless and rather mildly marbled appearance makes it ideal for bathrooms.
Tadelakt is formed from lime distinct to the Marrakech constituency of Morocco. The word Tadelakt means “to stroke.” This caressing of the material is what results in its interesting finish. However, it is not an exact, standardized finish. Hued with natural pigmentations it is possible to coordinate and interchange any color combination.
Tadelakt produces a finish with plenty of depth, a mild glimmer, and a natural color variant depending on how the material is applied and refined. The plaster can be finished in countless ways such as a multicolored or distressed finish. Stone, mildly pitted, stenciled, and bedecked with sgraffito techniques, or entirely harmonized are possible as well. A consistent trait of Tadelakt is its ability to retain a silk like feel regardless of the technique used.
