Refurbishing a home with the Porcelanosa ceramic collections
The firm is opting for more sustainable and resilient products that allow greater energy efficiency and make homes more habitable.
Home refurbishment has been at the centre of architectural and political debate in recent months and has come to be seen as one of the keys to combatting climate change, in line with the energy neutrality required by the European Commission for 2050.
According to the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, before the Covid-19 health emergency in Spain, 30,000 homes were being renovated each year and the number is expected to reach 1.2 million by 2030, according to the National Integrated Energy and Climate Plan (PNIEC) 2021-2030.
In view of the impact that this type of activity is having on the property market and in line with its Eco Conscious sustainability programme, Porcelanosa recommends a series of ceramic collections that will allow you to make more imaginative use of the space available with materials inspired by stone or wood.
To make areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen lighter, collections such as Marmi China and Nantes will unify the design of the room with more restrained tones. The Marmi China collection has white as the main colour, allowing you to design a more neutral, brighter bathroom.
The same is true of Nantes, whose surface reproduces the colours and texture of limestone in two tones (Caliza and Acero). The HIGHKER large format tiles can be used for floors or walls and will help to create more durable bathrooms with a sense of continuity. All parts of the room are easy to keep clean and safety is improved with AntiSlip technology, with open-plan designs that make optimum use of natural light.
If you want to gain space by extending the kitchen into the living room, we recommend installing Forest ceramic parquet by Par-ker™ (95% recycled material), or the Marbella Blue or Marbella Stone collections. These hydraulic tiles recall nineteenth century styles, with a wealth of plant and geometrical patterns, and can be used for flooring or on walls. In addition to giving the room a distinctive artistic touch, this collection is easy to clean and requires hardly any maintenance, contributing to greater hygiene in the kitchen.
The blue and brown tones of Marbella Blue and Marbella Stone can be combined with Nast porcelain flooring in different colours (Caliza, Dark, Blanco, Grey, Arena and Brown). This series will contribute to energy efficiency and provide a durable surface on floors and walls thanks to its solid composition and hardness.
The neutral tones and integrity of the tiles allow the kitchen to become part of the general structure of the home, providing continuity with the exterior.
