The strong and gentle soul of cement
The choice of kitchen surfaces is essential to achieve a result that satisfies both the aesthetics of the space and its functionality, for example, as a backsplash on the wall directly behind the sink and the hob. For those who work in the kitchen the choice of the tiles for the backsplash must guarantee an easy-to-clean surface that protects the wall behind it and gives character to the space with either a pleasing contrast to the rest of kitchen or by harmonizing with it.
Depending on the style and type of furniture, the backsplash can therefore focus on different aesthetics: for classic and country styles, but also shabby chic, a coloured backsplash or mosaic is a suitable choice. If, however, the kitchen is in a minimalist or ultra-modern style, you may opt for a more compact surface in subdued tones.
Panaria Ceramica offers a range of different and attractive solutions such as the Glamcollection, a wallpaper with all the advantages of the thinnest ceramic slab in the world. A light and durable collection with various decorative themes such as the Washi variant, which evokes exquisite fabrics with minimalist designs. The collection thus becomes a powerful expressive medium for renovating walls and transforming them into scenic, practical and safe surfaces.
With Eternity, elegant and harmonious slabs inspired by the most exquisite marbles traversed by varying vein patterns, chiaroscuro effects and sophisticated decorations, the backsplash area becomes particularly sophisticated and harmoniously contrasts with more modern furnishing elements.. The Muretto in the Via Maestra stone-effect collection returns the kitchen backsplash to the concept of a primitive surface scarred by natural elements. The vein patterns that cross the surface consist of light, subtle, shaded marks that create movement, depth and a three-dimensional effect.
Alternatively, the Context collection features a series of wavy wall surfaces that can further enhance a kitchenette. The Stone Trace collection offers a versatile stone for the kitchen with a tactile appeal and bold, yet discreet chromatic characteristics. Its intense colour, original surface shades and chromatic balance make slate an elegant background complement.
Finally, for lovers of minimalism, there is the choice from the wide range of products in the Zero.3 collection of ultra-thin laminated stoneware. With slabs in sizes of 100 x 300 cm and 120 x 278 cm it is possible to cover the wall of the kitchen with one continuous surface and a reduced number of joints, for a strongly distinctive look.
Whatever the choice, Panaria Ceramica guarantees surfaces with Protect® antibacterial protection. Designed with Microban's® industry-leading antibacterial technology, they feature a true silver ion shield embedded in the ceramic product, which eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria from the surface.
The result is a truly protected surface which is very hygienic and resistant to wear, for maximum peace of mind in the heart of the house!
