Pavimento grigio: sfumature di eleganza con il gres porcellanato di Casalgrande Padana

by Sara Costi

Timeless, sophisticated, elegant and modern, light and soft or dark and bold, grey symbolises balance and refinement. A vast array of tones and shades – from pearl to ash – makes grey the most versatile colour, perfect for any setting, allowing you to create tone-on-tone monochrome or contrasting combinations.

Casalgrande Padana’s collections of porcelain stoneware floor and wall tiles are modern, practical, functional, and feature appealing textures. The marble-, metal-, wood-, stone-, and concrete-effect (in both the Cassero and Rasato versions) tiles, available in many shades of grey, are the perfect combination of versatility and aesthetics.

The various shades of grey of Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles

A grey floor is the perfect neutral base for a fresh and modern project. Grey goes well with any colour (black, white, pastel colours like yellow, powder pink, and any shade of blue), making it perfect for both contemporary metropolitan and refined Nordic settings.

Exposure to light (number and position of the windows), the room’s size, and the time of the day in which the room will be used are all aspects that need to be considered when choosing the shade of grey for your porcelain stoneware floor and wall tiles. Grey can enhance brightness based on the amount of natural light that filters in the room.

Light grey is the perfect colour for floors and walls to emphasise white accessories and furnishings, making settings even more luminous.

Using the same shade of grey throughout the house with matching porcelain stoneware floors and skirting boards will make the setting look more spacious while adding lightness. Painting the walls in a shade of grey that matches that of the floors will create beautiful plays of colour.
