Flexible, versatile and durable, with excellent technical performance and a wide range of surfaces, sizes and thicknesses, porcelain stoneware is an ideal décor surface, as well as a traditional solution for tiling floors and walls. It has endless uses in interior design projects, thanks to advanced technology and the variety of large sizes available (60x120 cm, 120x120 cm, 120x240 cm, 120x278 cm and 160x320 cm), with thicknesses of 6 mm and 12 mm.
Porcelain stoneware is a superbly creative covering material for tables, kitchen and bathroom worktops, shower trays and washbasins, shelves, wall cupboards, doors, worktops, backsplashes, hob tops, backrests, dividing walls, backdrops, bookcases, wardrobe interiors, fireplaces, frames and focal points, and even garden décor elements.
Shimmering light accents, delicate veining and sophisticated details combine with a broad range of colours with concrete, wood, marble, metal or stone effects to shape original, creative interior design projects able to guarantee a smooth style and material continuity in every living space. Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles slot effortlessly into any style. They can be installed with endless fixed or mobile laying schemes to design custom furnishing accessories.
Porcelain stoneware for outdoor décor
Versatile, practical and resistant, porcelain stoneware tiles are also perfect for outdoors. They can be used as a covering for outdoor kitchens, counters, benches and garden tables, with either traditional rectangular or more elegant, rounded shapes. The tiles engage with nature and the surroundings, offering maximum creative freedom to team them with all kinds of style and design and décor requirements.
Whatever the climate, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles are resistant to the elements and temperature shifts, humidity, chlorine and the salty sea air. They are resistant to stains, wear and abrasion, and non-deformable. The colours do not fade or alter over time, and the tiles are easy to clean. Thanks to the Bios Antibacterial® treatment (which can be obtained on request), they are able to prevent the formation of mould, yeasts and fungi, and eliminate bacteria present on the surface.
Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles are made exclusively from natural, eco-compatible and fully recyclable materials. Casalgrande Padana’s whole manufacturing philosophy has always aspired to achieve the finest quality standards, obtained thanks to assiduous research and the use throughout the production process of advanced manufacturing technologies designed to ensure maximum respect for the environment.
