Styles and fashions come around in cycles, and alongside large-size tiles, we’re also witnessing the return of small tiles. Suitable for floors and walls both indoors and outdoors, small-size porcelain stoneware tiles are easy to lay, and are resistant to high temperatures, humidity, stains, wear and tear, impact, and abrasion. They are also non-absorbent, fire-resistant, and antibacterial, thanks to the Bios Antibacterial® treatment that can be applied on request.
Modern, versatile and with distinctive, appealing variations in colour, the small-size tile collections are a stylish option for contemporary living spaces, embracing a desire for sophistication and elegance. Perfect for bringing a personal touch to any furnishing project with original laying patterns, these tiles help add definition - and a dash of creativity - to settings with a vintage, rustic, country, Provençal, Mediterranean, shabby or boho chic, modern or minimalist style.
In keeping with the latest trends, Brickworks by Casalgrande Padana comes in three variants: Nuances, Muretto, Petra and Opus.
Because they can be laid with a horizontal, vertical, diagonal, mixed or herringbone pattern, the small 8.2x25 tiles in the Brickworks Nuances collection are perfect for embellishing a fireplace or a niche set into the wall, or for creating the backdrop for a bookcase. They also offer a creative solution for tiling bathroom and kitchen walls, or the external walls of a patio or a veranda, and are also ideal for creating a focal point on an outdoor wall of a swimming pool area.
The superb adaptability and resistance of Brickworks Muretto and Brickworks Petra wall tiles also make them ideal for the backsplash, a central element in kitchen furnishings used to protect and preserve the walls from heat, humidity, grease and wear and tear.
Thanks to Bios Self Cleaning® technology, significant advantages can also be obtained in terms of reducing cleaning and maintenance times and costs, as well as an authentic improvement in air quality. The superhydrophilicity of the Bios Self Cleaning® ceramic surface is able to eliminate the pollutants present in the air and to break down the dirt that settles on the surface of the tiles, so it can be washed away by rainwater. From small villages to huge cities, each building can thus help improve the appearance of their surroundings and boost energy saving.
