Benefits of concrete-effect stoneware floors
Minimalist and highly fashionable, concrete-effect porcelain stoneware floors are an interior design solution that offers many benefits for a variety of reasons.
First and foremost, concrete-effect ceramic floor and paving tiles are an excellent choice for indoor and outdoor use. Here, the technical characteristics of stoneware are a major plus factor, such as its resistance to abrasion, foot traffic and impacts. Porcelain stoneware is also waterproof, since it has a moisture absorption coefficient of less than 0.5%, making floors and pavings immune to water and liquids. Another beneficial factor is resistance to fire - stoneware is flame retardant and does not emit toxic materials in case of fire - and frost; it is unaffected by sharp changes in temperature, so it is also perfect for covering outdoor areas.
Last but not least, the colours of concrete-effect floors do not fade over time. This is particularly important for use as outdoor pavings, as tile colours are unaffected by exposure to sun, smog and weather.
