The colors of porcelain stoneware

The choice of the upholstery shade is a fundamental part of the furnishing of any space, whether private or professional.

Taking up the finest marbles, the porcelain stoneware textures offered are increasingly realistic and unthinkable, with aesthetic solutions suitable for every context and able to meet the needs of every style.

It is a material resistant to abrasion and wear that does not discolour and does not remain stained (generally it is guaranteed to last for at least 20 years). This allows you to make a decision on the texture even in the long term, without having to worry about any maintenance and changes over time.

So, which colors to choose and how to match each color to the right furniture?

The first thing to do in choosing a covering, floor or wall, is to take into account some elements: the size of the environment, the exposure, the style of the furnishings, the color of the other surfaces and, finally, also the ceiling height.

Clear coating

The choice of a light coating is often linked to the desire to create an elegant and modern environment.

This particular nuance helps to amplify the space: light floors are, in fact, an option to be preferred when you need to give more breath to interior spaces, especially if the square footage is limited.

The light shades give more light to the environment, providing the illusion of greater amplitude; they are excellent if the desire is to obtain an airy and light-filled environment.

Dark finish

Unlike light coatings, dark ones tend to reduce the size of the environment in which they are placed.

This small optical inconvenience is compensated by the strong visual impact.
The effect created by the dark-toned porcelain stoneware slabs, in fact, create strong-impact contrasts, giving strength and character to any environment.

With dark shades it is important to be daring: they are combined with a home with a strong personality and a strong character.
