Porcelanosa’s most eye-catching hydraulic tile collections

Here are some décor ideas for you to refresh your home with a number of the firm’s collections inspired by 19th century modernist ceramics.

The modernist art movement came about in the 19th century and lasted until the beginning of the twentieth century, and was about reformulating the use of building materials with new properties and attributes. Ceramic tiles played their part, becoming the material of choice thanks to their versatility and design.

Geometric, floral, animal and costumbrist motifs formed the decorative basis for tiles, and the onset of automation in the Industrial Revolution changed the way the material was constructed and used. It marked the start of architecture breaking away from academic rigidity and precision, with curved lines, stylised forms and volumetric structures. PORCELANOSA Group’s hydraulic tile collections (traditional cement tiles) feature motifs and technical specifications that will enrich spaces with natural sheen and numerous finishes.
