The right texture for the bedroom
Of all the various textures offered by porcelain stoneware, the wood effect is undoubtedly among the most popular for those seeking the warm, natural sensation typical of wood, while among the more classic options is the timeless marble effect. This fresh take on the traditional tones of marble, with an original, modern allure given by a new-generation material such as porcelain stoneware, offers an interesting solution for anyone looking for a classy, sophisticated bedroom.
A rigorous, modern elegance and soft, neutral, shaded colours are the distinctive features of Casalgrande Padana’s stone-effect ceramic tiles. Inspired by the natural elegance of stone, they can be used to create interesting combinations and compositions suitable for shaping all kinds of furnishing styles, from the most traditional to the most contemporary, modern, minimal style.
Finally, a more “daring” option, perfect for creating truly original combinations, are the cement-effect collections, offering endless expressive potential and particularly suitable for creating settings with a striking visual impact, in a modern style, or for open-space environments with an urban flavour.
The colours and formats to choose for the bedroom
When choosing colours for the floor, whatever the effect you’re seeking to create, it’s worth considering that porcelain stoneware surfaces in deeper, darker colours are best suited to large areas and to bring a touch of character to the bedroom. However, dark colours should be used with simple laying patterns, and require furnishings and furnishing accessories with a simple, minimal style, to avoid overloading the space. In contrast, lighter surfaces in softer tones allow for more elaborate style combinations, and are also ideal for bedrooms with more striking, sophisticated styles.
As regards formats, the larger the room, the more scope there is for laying schemes featuring large tiles or long listel tiles with minimal joints, while smaller bedroom areas will require smaller sizes, and above all running bond, herringbone or chevron laying patterns.
As well as allowing for elegant, trend-inspired combinations, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware also offers impressive technical characteristics and performance, because it does not alter over time: it is non-allergenic, fire-resistant (in the event of fire, it does not give off substances harmful to humans or the environment), eco-compatible and fully recyclable - and it’s also antibacterial, thanks to the innovative Bios Antibacterial® treatment, able to eliminate 99% of bacteria present on the ceramic surface.
