Choosing the same flooring for each area, creating a smooth, seamless style throughout the home, for a consistent, more spacious look. In small one or two bedroom homes, or homes with multiple floors, using the same flooring throughout is a versatile, functional solution, for a beautifully smooth and harmonious look.
When you opt for the same flooring throughout the house, pay close attention to tile shape and size. To choose the right tiles for your desired look, take account of the size of the setting, the natural light and the style you’re seeking to create. The porcelain stoneware collections by Casalgrande Padana offer a huge range of tile options: square, rectangular and hexagonal sizes, plus solutions featuring particular shapes, for more original, decorative laying solutions. For a simple, minimalist look for the floor, choose large tiles (60×60 cm and upwards), even for more compact spaces.
Among our many collections, wood-effect porcelain stoneware is one of the best flooring options for use throughout the home, combining the characteristics of wood planks (gnarls, marks and warm colours) with the technical performance and resistance of porcelain stoneware. A perfect combination of colour and design takes wood surfaces up a gear, with exclusive varieties from all over the world teaming with ceramics to mimic the unique features of a quintessentially natural material. The vintage allure of wood-effect surfaces enhances interiors, creating a sophisticated, contemporary mood.
Wood-effect porcelain stoneware plank tiles offer a variety of laying options, depending on the size of the setting, the furnishings and personal taste: from a classic straight or diagonal pattern, to square and chevron, as well as Italian, Hungarian or French herringbone.
The marble-effect stoneware collections offer another classy, contemporary option to create continuous flooring with minimum joints. Uneven grits, random patterns and geometric textures offer a decorative look, for seamless surfaces with a natural look, able to overcome the limits of tiles. The vintage, artisan look of the grits teams with the technical performance of porcelain stoneware, for maximum creative freedom.
Excellent transmittance and heat conductivity make porcelain stoneware an ideal material for use with underfloor heating, because it is effective at transmitting heat. With an underfloor heating system and Casalgrande Padana’s Bios Antibacterial® technology, the whole family can enjoy walking barefoot, and you can let the kids play on the floor even in winter.
The 20 mm thickness and impressive range of non-slip outdoor surfaces with a concrete, wood, metal or stone effect also make it easy to create seamless indoor-outdoor flooring looks.
The different shapes and sizes of the porcelain stoneware tiles from Casalgrande Padana make them suitable for every project. Versatile, modern and functional, the numerous collections can be teamed with the most contemporary furnishing styles, meeting all kinds of needs. Extraordinarily resistant to abrasions, stains and the elements, and with impressive bending strength, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware files are ideal for both indoor and outdoor flooring and coverings. Made exclusively from natural raw materials, free from plastic and harmful substances, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware is completely recyclable, eco-sustainable, fire-resistant, non-allergenic, antibacterial and easy to clean, and remains unchanged over time.
