Design projects you can create with porcelain stoneware

More than just coverings

When you think of porcelain stoneware, the first thing that comes to mind is the material for covering vertical and horizontal surfaces. But its wide array of qualities, sizes, and finishes makes it perfect for decorating too.

Versatility, resistance, and high performance are the distinctive features of porcelain stoneware. That’s why it’s always been used on floors and walls (both indoors and outdoors). But there are also other features to keep in mind, like the larger sizes, reduced thickness (6 mm and 6.5 mm) and textures (smooth or rough), not to mention the colours. Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles, for example, allow you to choose from concrete, marble, wood, and stone effect. This way, you can unleash your creativity on tables, coffee tables, kitchen and bathroom countertops, shower trays, washbasins, shelves and wall units, worktops, partition walls, and even garden furnishings.

For settings like bathrooms and kitchens – where humidity levels and hygiene standards to meet are higher – there is the Bios Antibacterial® range of porcelain stoneware tiles. These tiles reduce the four main bacterial strains while combating odours, mould, yeast, and fungi. All this without losing an ounce of their charm.

We love interior design!

The finishes chosen for an interior design project can change the result and perception of the imagined space, making it look more rigorous, chic, imaginative, or minimalist.

Customising a project by using materials for furnishings that create continuity with the rest of the setting is all the rage. And porcelain stoneware is the perfect material for that since it can be used in different arrangements, both fixed and movable.

Applications

Beautiful bespoke porcelain stoneware objects are not just the result of a creative mind. They require the help of great artisans, who can follow the designer’s indications and create these works of art using the right techniques and machinery. Artisans who master milling techniques, 45-degree cuts to round off edges, and surface (and support) shaping techniques, who know which anchoring method to choose and how to create harmony between different materials.

Need a few ideas? How about shelves, bookcases, container units, cantilevers, fireplaces, frames and focal points that enhance volume and chiaroscuro effects? Or maybe, staircases, tables, counters (which can even serve as benches), backrests, washbasins, and showers? Whatever you choose, precision and creativity are the words!
