4 ideas and styles for the kitchen

It is often the central space of the house and the one on which most attention is focused, together with the living room, when it comes to furnishing and characterizing it. The kitchen is the room that best represents the home for all of us, and it is not always easy to design. Before thinking about colours and furnishings, it’s important to choose materials and, besides aesthetics, there’s one fundamental feature that should not be underestimated: surface hygiene and safety!

Many of Panaria Ceramica's collections are part of Protect®, an exclusive line of extremely high-performance antimicrobial floor and wall coverings in porcelain stoneware. The Protect® ceramic surfaces have a true antimicrobial shield of silver ions integrated into the tiles that eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria from floor and wall surfaces that’s  always active, 24 hours a day, day and night. The surfaces are therefore ideal for an environment in which well-being is not only experienced through food, but also through the spaces in which we prepare and consume it.

Concrete effect

Panaria’s concrete effect surfaces are highly contemporary. Those who prefer Mediterranean atmospheres with material looks can choose cement tiles that enable you to create very visually striking graphic elements. Or, for a compact, essential environment, characterised by a minimalism that enhances pure forms, you can opt for less processed surfaces featuring marble, stone and terracotta grit, blended into a cement-based mixture.

Stone effect

For those who love the stone effect, Panaria’s collections offer soft shades and bolder versions, ideal for characterising cooking areas and kitchen tops with elegance and contemporary style. Porcelain stoneware is also environmentally friendly and guarantees optimal hygiene and durability. The surface texture is perfectly uniform and, thanks to Panaria’s leading production technology, it also offers perfect graphic effects, exactly like natural stone.
