Furnishing with porcelain stoneware: ideas for the bathroom
The bathroom is one of the most intimate and private places in our homes: a space where we can relax and take care of ourselves. Every detail and every element must be studied and chosen with particular care so as not to risk creating a disharmonious and non-functional environment.
While designing the bathroom, the first choice is certainly that of cladding for walls, floors and furniture, which form the basis of all room design elements.
So how do you choose the perfect cladding?
Solutions suited to different types of bathroom
When renovating a bathroom, the type of room in which the intervention is being applied is the first aspect to consider.
The master bathroom, usually located in the sleeping area, is by definition the most important bathroom within the home and must be designed for comfort and well-being. Inside there are various complements and finishes to enhance according to one’s own taste and style.
For a classic and precious style, the choice can fall on the marble effect favoring a total look effect or aiming for a combination with different materials. The choice of large slabs reproducing the natural effects of stone or inspired by the effects of concrete lend themselves well to a modern, high-tech interpretation.
In furnishing the service bathroom, on the other hand, the technical specifications of the space must be taken into consideration first: generally speaking, the service bathroom is smaller in size and has poorer lighting than the master bathroom. In this case, light-colored porcelain stoneware walls and floors are preferable to increase the light effect and give the feeling of being in front of larger rooms.
