Colorful floors: how to give style and personality to a house
As soon as you enter a room, what immediately strikes you is the atmosphere – the air, the mood. Color is the main component of a room’s atmosphere, the characteristic which carries us from one style to another in the blink of an eye, conveying the sensibilities and design character.
Colorful floors immediately provide the stylistic reference for furnishing a room, representing the base on which not only the furniture rests, but also the entire interior design project. In setting the tone for the style idea we wish to pursue, choosing the most suitable colored tiles is a key step. We have an entire palette of possibilities at our disposal, thanks to the ever-more refined and detailed solutions offered by porcelain stoneware. From solid colors which run the entire color gamut, in the widest range of tones and nuances, right through to resin-, concrete- and clay-effect colored tiles – every material interprets color in its own way, offering a range of aesthetic possibilities suitable for every environment and any style.
Let’s take a closer look at some of the best solutions for bringing personality and character to the entire environment through colorful floors, using the most on-trend nuances.
Colored floors for indoor environments
The personality of a room starts out with the color of its floor. Amongst the new interior design trends, colors are one of the things which really stand out. From the boldest to the most tepid tones, right through to pastel colors and warm undertones, colored tiles convey personality and character in any room.
In order to begin designing indoor spaces with an eye on chromatic harmony, an excellent starting point is to look at contrasts: colored floors in light tones and darker tones or wooden furniture for a bright and refined atmosphere; darker colored floors, on the other hand, bring out lighter furniture elements (very elegant on neutral grey and beige tones) for a sophisticated and audacious effect.
As a general rule, for the living area we recommend choosing warmer tones which convey passion and energy, while in bedrooms colored tiles in colder tones are better suited to relaxing atmospheres, providing visual rest as well.
When we talk about colorful interior floors, we should point out that we are not referring just to solid colors – quite the contrary, in fact. Thanks to Emilgroup’s solutions, colored tiles are available in terracotta-effect, stone-effect, clay-effect tiles – all thanks to the company’s research which brings color to the most popular materials and finishes.
Sixty by Emilceramica is the perfect example of this. It is the collection which celebrates the group’s sixtieth anniversary through a collection of colored tiles which highlight the nuances and evocative power of clay – the raw material with which the entire ceramic artform began. Sixty reflects the material and intimate dimension of clay: its form, its lines, its color, the interplay of light on its surfaces. And it is precisely the color variations – one for each decade of the group’s activities – which play the main role in this collection, from the Fango color of the 1970s to last year’s Sabbia.
Colored tiles in the kitchen for a touch of personality
The kitchen is the ideal place for experimentation, to let yourself be carried away by original suggestions and try out new tastes. One of the key ingredients of a stylish and characterful kitchen is the use of color. Colored tiles in the kitchen are an increasingly popular choice to give a touch of personality to a lively environment, where food becomes the preparation and celebration of creativity.
One of the most popular solutions for a kitchen with colored tiles, with a cutting-edge aesthetic appearance, is dark kitchen cabinets contrasting with lighter tones. A high-impact choice is the effect provided by using furniture in shades of gray or industrial style combined with colored tiles for a kitchen with a strong yet harmonious taste. From bolder colors – light blue tiles on wall compositions with neutral wood tones is very on-trend – right through to textural and resin coverings, colorful kitchen tiles offer a range of design possibilities which we have only begun to explore.
The perfect ingredient to begin this exploration is TotaLook by Emilceramica. It is the collection which, on the solid foundations of technical expertise and design, brings the world of resin into refined and contemporary spaces. Harmonious combinations of light and material, with more than a nod to technical excellence, the collection revolves around five dominant colors (Bianco, Sabbia, Grigio, Antracite and Blu Avio) in three different decorations: Dolcelinea, Incroci, Majolica in Matt and Lux finishes – an entire palette of solutions, surfaces and looks for a kitchen with colored tiles which is able to enhance any stylistic taste.
