Among the most influential trends for the home in recent years, we find industrial-inspired spaces. The "cement look" aims to create environments based on modernity, with a lot of strength and personality over the room.
Encouraged by the aesthetics of the incredible minimalist studios in Manhattan, we decided to design Fancy: a ceramic tile with a cement look born to balance the spaces between the sobriety of cement and the softness of its touch. A perfect tile for living room floors and walls.
Marble is always a safe bet to dress the living room floor with ceramic tiles. A clean, resistant, timeless and easy to combine option that will fill with brightness and sophistication a space as important as the living room.

Hydraulic tiles turn any room into a special space. Increasingly in trend, the patterns inspired by the old hydraulic tiles return to give your bathrooms a touch between tradition and modernity.
The Saudade series, inspired by classic Portuguese tiles, is full of hydraulic tile options for the bathroom to complete the perfect look.
Outdoor ceramic tile flooring
The most important thing in choosing the perfect outdoor ceramic tile is to look for the one that is most resistant to adverse weather conditions. Such as long summer sunny afternoons, winter snows or the most intense downpours.
Here we are going to present you two good options divided into large and small format, so that you can choose the one that best suits your needs:
The large format is perfect for modern-inspired environments in which to create a visual effect of spaciousness.
The small format is perfect for rustic and traditional inspired exteriors. Adding small decorations such as borders or touches of color is perfect for highlighting areas around tables or other prominent areas of the patio.
A very interesting option is the Terracotta series in all its shades, combined with its decorations, designed almost exclusively for terraces and patios.
How to clean ceramic tile floors
Ceramic floors are very easy to clean and maintain, that is why they are the most chosen option in such complicated areas as the kitchen and the bathroom.
To clean ceramic tile floors, the first step is to remove all dust particles and dirt from the surface with a broom or a vacuum cleaner with the right attachment for hard floors.
After having removed the remains of dirt it is important to carry out a proper deep cleaning and disinfection of the surface. The easiest way to do this is to use a mop or cleaning cloth with a specific product for ceramic floors diluted in water.
For resistant stains, such as dirt accumulated in the joints, other instruments can be used, such as a toothbrush or a steam cleaner.
As you can see, cleaning and disinfecting ceramic floors can be done in very simple and quick steps.
We hope we have inspired and helped you in your choice for the new ceramic floor in your home.
