Uniting spaces: the new indoor and outdoor flooring trend

Uniting spaces: the new indoor and outdoor flooring trend

In the world of interior design, every detail counts, and floors are undoubtedly one of the fundamental elements that define the atmosphere and personality of a space. Imagine entering a home where every room, from the kitchen to the living room, from the terrace to the garden, has a perfectly continuous floor. A feeling of unity and harmony, guiding visitors along a fluid and coherent path.

This vision is no longer a mere designer's dream, but a growing trend that is catching on in many modern homes: a single floor for the whole home. 

Now let’s see how this trend can transform your home, and how the infinite variations of porcelain stoneware can star in this beauty revolution.

We completely cover indoor and outdoor floors, as far as architecture and landscape allow, to create perfect continuity. Technology allows our ceramic surfaces to continuously vary thicknesses, finishes and dimensions to let the space pass beyond walls and windows. But there’s one rule: maintain a pure and unmistakable identity, made of style choices and increasingly high technical performance.

Winning features: tiles for indoor and outdoor use

When it comes to a single floor for the whole home, both for indoors and outdoors, it is essential that the chosen tiles have certain fundamental characteristics to guarantee beauty, durability and function.

Resistance to wear and bad weather

One of the main challenges for outdoor tiles is their ability to withstand the elements, such as rain, snow and UV rays. Their surface should be able to withstand sudden changes in temperature and humidity. For indoor spaces, resistance to wear due to foot traffic and friction is vital.

Outdoor tiles in particular must have an anti-slip surface to ensure safety, especially when wet. This feature is equally appreciated in some indoor areas such as bathrooms and kitchens.

Low porosity
This feature ensures that the tiles do not absorb much water, thus avoiding problems such as efflorescence or frost damage.

Easy maintenance

The ideal tiles are those that require few specific interventions for maintenance and cleaning. A stain-repelling surface that is easy to clean can make a huge difference in the long run.

Aesthetic versatility
While this may not seem like a "feature" in the traditional sense, tiles must offer a range of aesthetic options. Porcelain stoneware, for example, can replicate the appearance of natural materials such as wood, stone or marble, thus offering a wide range of style options without compromising on function.

Why choose porcelain stoneware to create stylish indoor and outdoor spaces

Having analysed the essential qualities that tiles must have to enhance both indoor and outdoor spaces, a particularly remarkable candidate stands out: porcelain stoneware. This material, available in both 1 cm and 2 cm thicknesses for outdoor use, not only meets all the essential strength, safety and functionality requirements, but adds a touch of elegance and sophistication.

Much-loved by designers for its versatility, porcelain stoneware is the perfect balance between function and form, thus becoming the ideal choice for those who refuse to compromise on style and practicality.

Concrete tiles

For anyone seeking a more contemporary look, concrete-effect stoneware is ideal. This style, particularly suitable for modern homes, expresses a sense of cleanliness and rigour. Its versatile nature manifests itself both in indoor living spaces and in outdoor areas such as terraces, ensuring coherence and modernity.

Stone-effect tiles

The stone effect of porcelain stoneware brings a sense of authenticity and a connection with nature. The Rapolano Beige in the Omnia collection creates a warm and earthy beige colour, ideal for defining welcoming and serene atmospheres. Its slightly variegated texture ensures an up-to-the-minute, sophisticated look, evoking the intrinsic beauty of stone in any space where it is laid.

A single path: the synthesis of indoor and outdoor trends

A floor is much more than just a surface to walk on; it is a canvas that defines the environment, connects spaces and tells a visual story. Laying the same flooring for indoor and outdoor is not only a declaration of style but also a testimonial to function and harmony. A seamless space experience gives the home an unparalleled feeling of unity.
