Grey porcelain stoneware: the perfect choice for interiors
Grey tiles: a choice that not only offers a vast range of aesthetic options (colours, styles and materials), but also a strong aptitude for design. The defining feature of grey is its neutrality. A grey porcelain stoneware floor sets the stage for forms, colours and materials, a surface that acts as the foundation for a total design concept while integrating into surrounding elements with ease. It’s a colour that neither your eyes nor lovers of interior design will ever tire of: easy to combine with others, easy to clean, it brings balance and harmony to the space, while crossing many corners and ages of the world.
For instance, the inspiration for Chateau by Emilceramica comes directly from the heart of France. These natural stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles evoke the solidity and timeless fascination of Burgundy limestone – a protagonist of French architecture and the most refined fashion. The collection is available in Blanc, Beige, Gris and Noire - colours that recall antique landscapes, traditions in sedimentation, memories of fossils and shells impressed into surfaces. The mosaic decors round out a catalogue which combines minimalism with rich expressive potential.
How to combine grey-effect porcelain stoneware floor tiles with other colours
The extreme versatility of grey porcelain stoneware makes highly impactful combinations possible. Depending on your taste and design concept, a grey floor can be combined with a ton-on-ton colour wall - or contrasted with a fire red one. The lighter shades of grey set the stage for darker walls, an optical effect that creates a strong 3D statement; a dark grey floor in the modern style, on the other hand, combines very well with white or cream walls. The most popular current colour trends use taupe grey and, for an even bolder and very modern statement, combinations with strong blues and maroons – an excellent way to integrate colour into one of the room’s walls.
It’s hard to go wrong with grey, with its unlimited, highly attractive potential for matching with other colours; in all its variety, it never fails to be elegant, as in the Elegance Pro by Ergon collection. Sandstone is the protagonist in contemporary solutions for eclectic design, despite the apparent simplicity of the material. Its seven colour variants are ideal for floors in the various shades of grey, faithful to the rough authenticity of the rock: its touch, the soft movement of its sedimentation and the primordial warmth of stone. Furthermore, thanks to its four different finishes and the Shield antimicrobial process, this collection combines aesthetics with technical performance and surface protection. In a word - everything you could want from a floor that reflects your taste and way of inhabiting a space.
