The kitchen is one of the most well-used rooms in a home; therefore, the choice of porcelain stoneware tiles is an extremely important one. Choosing materials that reflect your unique taste and lifestyle means creating a personal world where to live and feel protected.
Kitchen tiles don’t just have an aesthetic purpose. They also protect the walls from heat, moisture, stains, and wear.
That’s why it’s so important for porcelain stoneware tiles to be easy to clean, hygienic (thanks to the Bios Antibacterial treatment), resistant to stains, scratches, impacts, and abrasions, non-absorbent, and fire-resistant. But they also have to blend harmoniously with other materials.
If you want to add a Provençal,retro or vintage edge to your kitchen, then Casalgrande Padana’s Cementine tiles are the perfect solution for you. On your floors, they are a great alternative to carpet, as coverings, they can also be used on your worktops and walls, thereby giving a unique touch to a room where to live and experiment every day.

If you prefer an urban chic style, you can choose the concrete-effect porcelain stoneware tiles from the Manhattan collection, which ensure continuity between floors and coverings, emphasising beauty and functionality with their neutral shades. The perfect solution that creates a refined atmosphere in your kitchen giving industrial architecture an elegant twist that hints at New York style lofts.
If a charming metropolitan atmosphere is what you’re going for, then you should choose metal-effect porcelain stoneware tiles. The shades of Corten steel, the nuances of dove grey, and the undefinable texture of metal oxides make porcelain stoneware surfaces perfect for adding an original touch to your kitchen.
If you prefer a linear and modern style and want to create unusual, personalised, contemporary spaces, concrete-effect porcelain stoneware tiles in soft, natural shades and colours are what you need to create a harmonious, sophisticated atmosphere.
