Concrete Effect: minimalist floors for contemporary spaces

Multiforme concrete-effect porcelain flooring

Concrete-effect tiles are increasingly in demand. What is the reason for their success?

Let's start by considering their aesthetics. The style of concrete is associated with refined material suggestions, avant-guard architecture, the interior design of large contemporary spaces, a call for modernity that imposes itself as a trend.

The elegance of the inspiring material is complemented by the superlative performance of porcelain stoneware: ceramic exploits its potential to the full to create surfaces and coverings that are as incredibly intriguing as they are durable.

Choosing a concrete effect floor means taking advantage of a privileged starting point in the design of a space. The refined neutrality of its sober and delicate appearance is the most congenial solution for enhancing furniture elements and walls of all hues.

Why choose a concrete or resin effect floor for a contemporary space? Here are some suggestions.

The textures of the concrete effect enhance a minimal but never boring space

Tile textures and patterns are an indispensable resource for characterising simple yet visually striking minimalist spaces.

The characteristic features of concrete are easily recognisable. The material elements create an immediate connection with people, projecting an intense and familiar sensory perception.

One of the secrets to emphasise the texture of a concrete effect is to choose warm-coloured or natural-looking elements such as wood or walls as a counterpoint brick effect.

Concrete-effect stoneware floor and wall tiles from the Multiforme collection are a perfect choice for playing with furnishing elements and fostering new expressive possibilities. The surfaces in this series aim to promote originality in design by making the most of technological innovation and original new sizes.

The concrete effect can become the focal point of the room

When it comes to interior design, considering a focal point for the room is crucial. Choosing a concrete-effect wall or floor is a bold and sophisticated choice. This type of solution instantly catalyses the attention of guests, giving the space a significant visual weight.

While other ceramic trends focus on bold patterns and bright colours, the concrete look focuses on more discreet and minimalist fascinations, exploiting its characteristic textures and important material references.

The expressive potential of concrete is no longer the prerogative of large commercial environments and deserves a prominent place in the interior design of modern and contemporary homes.

Choose a coloured resin effect to create surprising state-of-the-art interiorse

In the collective imagination, concrete effect tiles evoke the image of industrial-chic environments with grey tones and a post-industrial mood. The colourful resin-effect stoneware collections prove the opposite, exploiting the brilliance of bright colour accents to make the most of urban, vintage-inspired yet trendy interiors.

The striking colours of resin effect walls can create a dynamic mix with surfaces, giving contemporary commercial and residential spaces a vibrant and sophisticated atmosphere.

Concrete and resin effect stoneware tiles from the Multiforme 1741 collection are the perfect choice for exploring new expressive possibilities, exploiting the surprising brightness and opalescent reflections.

The enveloping earthy tones of the Overclay collection lend personality and prestige to expressive and trendy interiors, declining its warm nuances in a palette of seven colours. The floors and walls of Ossidi and Terra.Art exploit the richness of the graphics and the originality of the sizes to create suggestive settings of unparalleled aesthetic value, influenced by the fascinating stylistic features of the encaustic tiles.

In the resin-effect collections of Marca Corona, the typical essence of the concrete effect is enriched with details to consolidate a metropolitan, young and innovative design.


Indoor and Outdoor: the versatility of the concrete effect lends itself to every environment

Concrete and resin-effect floors and walls enliven every type of environment, offering numerous advantages, both in terms of aesthetics and functionality, thanks to the high performance of porcelain stoneware.

The technical characteristics of stoneware are an important plus: resistance to abrasion, trampling and impact, easy cleaning and maintenance make concrete look ceramic tiles a perfect candidate also for outdoor use, with the possibility of adopting a single collection to give continuity between an outdoor and an indoor environment. The moisture absorption coefficient of less than 0.5% makes porcelain stoneware waterproof, making it possible to invest in floors and flooring that are unaffected by water and liquids.

Stoneware ceramic is fireproof and do not emit toxic substances in the event of a fire. Ceramic is not only able to withstand high temperatures, but also frost, and can tolerate sudden temperature changes.

The colours of concrete-effect claddings and surfaces do not fade over time. This characteristic becomes especially important for the maintenance of outdoor tiles, which are continuously exposed to the effects of sun, pollution and other deteriorating atmospheric agents.

The question of which environment to use the concrete effect in becomes self-evident. This type of choice offers designers impeccable reliability and a huge range of inspiration, lending itself to every room. Here are some examples.
