Floor tiles are a product loaded with versatility, design features and finishes that make them a key material for use as flooring in all kinds of space.
Practical and decorative floor tiles
Floor tiles are celebrated for their properties, unrivalled by other construction materials. They offer complete versatility for installation in all kinds of settings thanks to their high strength and durability. Maintaining and cleaning tiles is simple and can be done in a low-cost and domestic manner. Low porosity and exceptional resistance to high temperatures, chemicals and aggressive atmospheric agents—as well as a great capacity for thermal and electrical insulation—give added-value to this highly efficient material.
From an aesthetic perspective, the natural-effect finishes, colour-fading processes, arrangement and different sizes or the appearance of the tiles add more decorative value to this type of flooring.
There are many collections of ceramic floor tiles suitable for all types of projects: large sizes that resemble natural rocks and stone, others that replicate a concrete finish to create a starker setting, tiles with the appearance of wood and those which emulate the hydraulic or cement tiling, among others.
Playing with their arrangement and combining different types of floor tiling add an additional touch to the finish.
