Nowadays, creating spaces with environmentally friendly materials allows us to adopt an active role in our commitment to the health of our environment. Sustainable ceramic products allow us to do just that without losing its attractive design. Ceramic is a material with 100% natural components. The tiles are made from water and clay and the manufacturing residues can be reused to make new elements.
Ceramic wall coverings are a good choice when you want to integrate high quality, environmentally friendly materials into your designs while still having versatile uses, resistant surfaces and low maintenance costs.
Ceramic tile can bring the look of natural wood indoors but without harming the environment. We can opt for a look of warmth with the appearance of lightwood, which provides luminosity, amplitude and continuity to the spaces.
In contrast, there is another trend in flooring – also inspired by nature – that is more focused on the beauty of the irregularity. Ceramics inspired by the raw and worn colors of stone contributes a look of strength and natural appeal to designs.
The simplicity of raw materials such as wood or stone is also present in projects of more classic tile inspiration. In order not to break the aesthetics of a more traditional design, it is vital to use a light color. A good example would be a mist gray color, which makes the design have a touch of distinction and cleanliness. In the same line, the stone-inspired pavements bring purity and transmit serenity through the unevenness that reigns in nature. The surfaces play with the subtle change of tones of the same flat color, a variation that moves away from the homogeneous and radiated spontaneity. These ceramic pieces possess a personality so strong that they become protagonists of the space, marking the style of their owner.
Another excellent option that contributes an energetic personality to interior spaces is the use of ceramic tiles inspired by alabaster. This is the response to the new trend of the rebirth of luxurious pieces, which stand out for their highly sophisticated finishes.
In addition, its ultra highness offers a mirror-like feel that contrasts sharply with yet another avant-garde design option, which uniquely combines dark matte coatings and untreated wood-inspired ceramic flooring. This style breaks the uniformity of flat colors and designs that try to go unnoticed through abstract or even geometric drawings.
Another possible choice is a more worn-looking ceramic wood with matte finishes and short slats. It is a perfect combination for a rustic style space. In this type of ceramic, resistance, ease of maintenance and cleaning are more present than ever.
The inspiration in marble remains a classic, now in lighter tones and of greater dimensions. It is the classic elegance through a material that promotes the luminosity of the room and a more solemn impression. In addition, its random design is reflected in the forms of nature’s own imperfection.
Finally, there is the possibility of creating different environments for the same room. It is the sum of ceramic decoration, or the perfect union between pieces of wood and stone inspiration. This daring symbiosis creates spaces of great beauty, which make the room a cult element for designers and lovers of art reflected in everyday life. In essence, wood and ceramic stones open a range of possibilities as infinite as the details of nature.
