Instinctive elegance and high performance for a stoneware that offers realistic interpretations of natural stones through a contemporary and unique style.
We are witnessing a major return to colour when it comes to choosing porcelain stoneware floor and wall tiles. Whites, however, are not disappearing, but becoming slightly coloured, often evoking the earth or other natural elements. Different shades and effects also help transform a space by making it look bigger or smaller. Stone-effect tiles for interiors can increase the feeling of warmth when warm shades are used, while colder colours can give the impression of a cool environment.
The Lavaredo stone-effect porcelain stoneware collection, for example, has the ability to instil a sense of nature, harmony and silence into spaces. The strong, marked texture in the Naturale colour is rich in solids and voids with colour shades that range from green to brown, via grey, to more uniform colours such as Bianco, Beige, Grigio and Antracite. The collection is inspired by exquisite, sophisticated Luserna stone and the surface is embellished with tiny flakes that are only visible against the light; a subtle presence like in the real stone.
Stelvio, stone-effect porcelain stoneware floor and wall tiles, reinterprets the natural Italian stone named “Ceppo di Gré”. The texture of this stone-effect porcelain stoneware, characterised by the presence of small and large pebbles in chromatic cadence, accentuates and embellishes the depth of the surface. The two cooler grey and white shades, together with the warmer interpretation of beige and the two natural and honed finishes, bring the collection closer to different living styles.
There is an ever-growing flooring trend for combination effects created using stoneware porcelain tiles from different collections or simply in different colours. Solutions can be endless and the result depends on the creativity of those who conceive them, whether they are final consumers or architects.
One part of the living room with a beige stone-effect floor and the other part with a quartzite stone-effect porcelain stoneware tile, perhaps in a different size. A large bedroom covered with grey stone-effect porcelain stoneware and a strip, which acts as a carpet, made of coloured cement tiles. The combination of different types of tiles lends a unique, special character to environments enhanced by the most varied and trendy stylistic research.
In large rural or post-industrial redevelopments, stone-effect tiles are considered essential to maintain the allure of a building steeped in history and tradition. Original, reclaimed floors are often flanked by latest-generation stone-effect ceramic floor or wall coverings such as Climb or Anversa.
After choosing the stoneware floor for the interior, design professionals increasingly opt for the same effect for the outdoor paving in a non-slip version that is more durable than indoor floor coverings. This allows you to ensure a stunning overall visual effect by simply opening the French window. Natural stone-effect porcelain stoneware is often favoured over real stone, including outdoors, because of its great durability, mechanical strength and resistance to abrasion, wear, scratches, stains, chemicals and frost.
