Thanks to their functionality and intricate design, ceramic tiles achieve excellent results as a surface for challenging spaces in terms of aesthetics and functionality.
Variety of wall tiles for all types of spaces
In an endless range of colours, sizes, textures and finishes, ceramic wall tiles are a great ally when putting together the ideal design for a room, whatever the predominant style of the overall project may be. Tiles with intriguing reliefs, modern slabs that recreate the sober feel of natural stone, warm wood-effect surfaces or special products such as the extra-thin XLight ceramic tile, among others. The versatility of these tiles is perfect for attractive architectural solutions, such as the continuous effect between floors and walls using the same surface material, or the visual fusion of exteriors and interiors using identical surfaces inside and outside.
Characteristics of ceramic wall tiles
Ceramic has unique properties as a construction material, is appropriate for a variety of uses and can be placed in different environments without deteriorating due to its great strength and durability. Ceramic tiles are often used in spaces that require high durability due to frequent use, such as bathrooms and kitchens, as they are highly waterproof and are easy to maintain and clean at a low cost. Furthermore, the material is highly effective at insulating both heat and electricity, meaning it provides considerable resistance against high temperatures, chemicals and aggressive atmospheric agents.
