Trendy Tiles – Competition for Carrara & Co
Bathrooms, kitchens and hallways are a traditional refuge for tiles. Lately, however, we have noticed that tiled areas are expanding and ceramic plates are even being used on floors and walls in living rooms and bedrooms. In addition to being water resistant, this is where they show off their second strength to its full advantage: graphical versatility.
With patterns inspired by Morocco and Portugal, they have a Mediterranean flair; glossy glazes and a matt finish suit almost every furnishing style and their format ranges from mosaics to wall panels. With such flexibility they compete with natural stones such as marble as well as composite materials such as Terrazzo, – and potentially replace carpets at the same time.
Colourful patterns made of ceramic can be wiped clean, are friendly to allergy sufferers and robust. If you initially prefer to keep things a bit more subtle, you can lay their fixed format in a diagonal pattern.
