Bathrooms, corridors, small kitchens, children's rooms and even the most formally serious environments such as the living room or the bedroom are tinged with colors, giving us the feeling of walking over a painting.

Watercolor floors are one of the novelties in the world of interior design, a solution that pleases because it is fun, colorful and unconstrained.












Following a long period in which homogeneous and monochromatic surfaces predominated, the decorations are finally back.
Their return that allows greater creative freedom and performance while decorating domestic spaces, thanks to the innovative technologies used in the sector.

Compared to the industrial ceramic tiles of the past the precision of digital printing now allows you to faithfully reproduce the spontaneous imprecision and uniqueness of handmade products.

Watercolor effect porcelain stoneware floors

Choosing a porcelain stoneware floor means having a resistant and long-lasting floor that is easy to lay and maintain, hygienic, ecological and with a good aesthetic result.

How about opting for an alternative that is even more captivating at a glance?

The suggestion is to focus on a porcelain stoneware floor, embellished with a watercolor touch: Shades, the flooring collection designed by Gordon Guillaumier for Ceramiche Piemme

Delicate watercolor brushstrokes work together wirh basic shades of concrete effect, whose natural imperfection, peculiar to handcrafted objects, is recreated in a realistic way by the most advanced digital printing technologies.

The colored body tiles evoke the look of classic majolica both in the decorations and in the formats. Alongside the modern 60x60 and 60x120 cm slabs, the line includes decorated hexagonal tiles, reminiscent of traditional cement tiles, and small size tiles, 20x20 cm, typical of majolica.

For this collection - says the designer Guillaumier - I drew inspiration from manually decorated ceramics, such as the historic one from Caltagirone. Starting from watercolors, I wanted to go against linearity and geometry in order to give the idea of a handmade surface.

The new ceramic tiles from the Shades series are inspired by ethereal and ancient watercolors. The five basic shades of concrete effect are combined with four types of decoration, each available in five shades ranging from white to golden, from light blue to blue and baby blue.

If you are interested in porcelain stoneware, but prefer a more impactful result, Bloom, the Del Conca wall tile from the Boutique series, characterized by a refined marble effect is simply perfect for you.

Marble fragments are fused in an abstract mix that incorporates the textures of various materials, creatively interpreting them through soft edges, typical of the watercolor painting technique.

The square format floor offers a masterful twist.

Watercolor effect vinyl floor

Do you want to change the floors of your house, maybe a second home, but you have limited budget and time?

The ideal is to rely on a vinyl covering which, thanks to its reduced thickness, can be placed on the existing floor, without changing your doors and windows.

Vinyl floors, thanks to high performance and refined aesthetics, are more the best choice today.

Vinyl or PVC (vinyl polychloride) is a very versatile material, as well as resistant, elastic and, therefore, not subject to deformation; this makes it suitable for areas such as entrances and corridors.

Being waterproof, it is also perfect in humid environments such as bathrooms, kitchens, laundries, rooms dedicated to sport and leisure, especially when you have to choose from many attractive proposals.
