Practical coverings that are easy to clean: the best choice for the modern kitchen

The evolution of the contemporary lifestyle has led to a hectic pace, with less and less time to devote to household cleaning, including cooking. This hectic pace, combined with the growing importance paid to beauty and function, has meant that the demands regarding modern kitchen coverings have changed considerably. Among these is the demand for practical, strong and easy to clean solutions.

Why modern kitchens require practical coverings that are easy to clean

This is why the importance of easy to clean kitchen tiles is growing. Kitchen surfaces must be able to withstand a range of daily challenges, including food splashes, oil stains, heat and humidity. Easy cleaning is not only a matter of time saved, but also of maintaining a healthy and hygienic environment.

Modern kitchen tiles must be designed to withstand daily wear and tear, while ensuring an attractive and modern style.

Porcelain stoneware: the perfect solution for the modern kitchen

Porcelain stoneware is the ideal solution for modern kitchen needs. This highly versatile and strong material combines beauty and function in the best possible way.

Stoneware is a very dense and compact type of ceramics with very low porosity. This means that it is extremely resistant to water, stains and wear, making it ideal for kitchen coverings.

This material is also available in a wide range of colours, styles and finishes, to meet any design need. Whether you’re after a modern, minimalist look or a more classic, traditional design, porcelain stoneware has the perfect solution.

Modern kitchen coverings: choice and positioning

The choice and positioning of kitchen coverings are two essential aspects to consider when designing a modern kitchen space. These decisions can have a significant impact on the overall beauty and function of the kitchen.

For a modern kitchen, you could choose a metal or concrete effect, for a clean, industrial style. For a warmer atmosphere, why not try a wood effect. For example, the Geo collection includes a charming resin effect that blends the rigour of resin with the practicality of porcelain stoneware.

Neutral shades like beige, grey or white can help to create a bright, sober space. However, don't hesitate to explore bolder colours or even art deco tiles, like those in the 9Cento range, to add a touch of personality to your kitchen.

How tile positioning can affect the overall appearance of the kitchen

Once you have chosen your porcelain stoneware, the next step is to consider how to position the tiles to achieve the best visual effect.

Tile direction: Tiles can be laid horizontally or vertically or in a diagonal pattern. A horizontal layout can make the space seem wider, while a vertical layout can give the illusion of a higher ceiling.

Positioning area: Porcelain stoneware can be used to cover the entire wall or only a part of it. You may decide to cover only the wall behind the stove or sink area, or you could cover all the walls for a more uniform look.

Remember, your kitchen is an expression of your personal style and way of life. So don't be afraid to experiment with different textures, colours, and positions to create the perfect space for you.
