The intentionally worn stone complexion of stone-finish ceramic wall and floor tiles is one of the decorative solutions for floors and walls with the most expressive force.
Seeking the most natural effect possible —close to rustic— new technologies have enabled the addition of highly realistic finishes to the ceramic wall and floor tiles with an appearance of slate, sedimentary rock, quartzite and other sophisticated stone materials.
Natural appearance with stone effect tiles
Featuring the veins of the various minerals, wall and floor tiles with a stone finish are ideal for projects seeking temperance and austerity in their design.
This stone-effect material has a rough, rounded appearance, applicable for a wide variety of eclectic decorative projects, where organic and authentic dominate. They provide a high added value to give spaces a rustic and functional look, where decoration gives way to materials in all their very essence.
This material makes for interiors that emphasise an artisanal appearance and a return to nature, where imperfect and worn edges denote authenticity and enhance the setting’s character.
Designs with stone effect for interiors and exteriors
This type of wall tile is excellent for exteriors, where a natural finish that fits in perfectly with terraces, porches and landscaped areas is always desired. This is because the same floor tile can be used continuously from interior to exterior, achieving a pleasing impression of continuity throughout both spaces.
Ceramic wall and floor tiles can be used in architecture to shape constructive approaches in interiors, exteriors, residential and commercial spaces or highly-transited areas. Their high durability and resistance make them highly suited to any space. Its inexpensive maintenance and low environmental impact, in addition to its high degree of resistance to chemicals and atmospheric agents, make ceramic tiling the ideal material in terms of efficiency and strength.
Ceramic is also considered to be an environmentally friendly material since it is reusable, easily degradable and manufactured via increasingly cleaner production methods.
