The use of ceramic floor tiles has grown at a rapid rate in recent years, especially in rooms that suffer from little traffic such as the bathroom. The increasingly complex technologies used in the manufacturing process has led to a much wider range of colors and styles available. As the finished product is not a one-hundred per cent natural piece, ceramic tiles are an ideal choice for those looking to reduce their impact on the environment, and they usually come with a lower price tag than authentic stone or wood.
Synthetic flooring has the added advantage that it is easy to maintain and clean and, with the right care, can last longer than natural flooring. Popular designers such as La Fabbrica have jumped on the demand for such a versatile product by creating ranges, which suit a wide scope of interior designs. Be it a natural-looking stone-style floor with gentle hues or a bold dash of color in the form of mosaics, ceramic tiles can be used to create a floor with the ‘wow-factor’ or one that does its work in the background, quietly complementing the individual features of a room such as a stunning piece of furniture or a one-off piece of art on the wall.
