PORCELAIN: KITCHEN AND BATH
KITCHEN COUNTERTOPS: IDEAS TO INSPIRE YOUR DREAM KITCHEN
1. CLASSICS WHITE DESIGN
The look of a classic white kitchen will never go out of style. A white quartz countertop with subtle gray veining, like this Monterey counter, adds just enough depth to let it stand out from the white cabinets. The white marble backsplash ties it all together effortlessly.
2. CONTEMPORARY WHITE
White kitchen countertops aren’t confined to simply traditional or transitional kitchens. This Aurora Snow countertop is the perfect complement to a more modern design. The light color pairs well with the light colored wood and open space to create a light, inviting atmosphere.
3. BRIGHT WHITE KITCHEN
Bright white kitchens have long been popular for lofts and other modern spaces. This Blizzard countertop has a cream tone with a subtle pale grey cabinet base to coordinate. The rest of the walls are bright white, with only some natural wood showing. The result is a very minimalist design.
4. RUSTIC MODERN DESIGN
Rustic Modern design has been increasing in popularity for the last several years. In the kitchen, that can often mean blending things like exposed wood beams in the ceiling with sleek, contemporary appliances. White quartz that looks like marble is the perfect addition to this design. The bright white color helps blend in with the more contemporary aspects, while the gray veins let it match the more rural aspect, as well.
5. CONTRASTING DESIGN
One of the best things about adding an island to the design of the room is the ability to switch up the color scheme. In this case, the warm wood of the perimeter is contrasted with a gray island, and a white and gray marble-look quartz countertop. The result is a dynamic, eye catching room.
6. CRISP WHITE WATERFALL
Waterfall countertops are an attractive way to highlight your island. By cascading the countertop over one side, you bring out more of its color and presence in the room. In this case, the bright white quartz countertop picks up the other clean white lines in the room. This, in turn, creates a very cohesive design.
7. MONOCHROMATIC GRAYS
One of the most popular neutral tones for the last few years has been gray. Gray has more personality than beige, but still allows for a lot of room for personal expression. This kitchen features many shades of gray, as well as many textures. This includes a smooth gray quartz counter that helps set the tone for the rest of the room.
8. MULTI-DIMENSIONAL DESIGN
Island countertops don’t need to be a single, flat surface. This unique design features not only a built-up counter, but also a waterfall and a column. Together, they bring a geometric interest to the island that helps it stand out more from the rest of the kitchen.
9. SOFTLY COLORED
Kitchens are often the gathering place of the entire family. So, it may make sense to want to include approachable, warm, soft tones in the room. This makes the area feel more like home to many people. The soft beige countertop on this oversized island does just that, creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere in the room.
10. DEEP, RICH DESIGN
While many people enjoy light-colored kitchens, dark colors can also be stunning, when done right. This kitchen features a lot of deep grays offset with warm natural wood. The quartz counter on the island is a deep black with white veins. The white helps soften the counter visually, letting it fit in better with the rest of the room.
11. BLACK AND WHITE ISLAND
This dramatic kitchen features an island with black painted cabinetry. This is topped by a bright, snowy white quartz countertop. The contrast between the two colors draws and focuses the eye. The design is completed by soft gray and white marble, and bright brass faucets and hardware, breaking up the monochromatic scheme.
12. LONG ISLAND COUNTER
Long, thin kitchens like this one look their best when the island matches the rest of the room’s dimensions. The sleek white quartz countertops pairs well with the length of the surface. Its subtle colors help keep the long surface from becoming overly busy, while the hints of gray pick up the color of the walls.
EXTRA 8 TOP REASONS TO
USE LARGE FORMAT LARGE FORMAT
TILES OR SLAB
As we pointed out at the beginning, there are many reasons that will make the balance lean towards large-format tiles because of the benefits they provide. Let's see, the most important advantages that large-scale porcelain stoneware offers.
1. IT PROVIDES A GREATER SENSE OF SPACIOUSNESS
In the same way that light colors provide the feeling of greater size to any room, the size or size of the tiles also directly affects the perception of the size of a room. If you intend to visually extend an environment, that is to say that gives the feeling of being larger than it is in reality, the most appropriate and recommended is to lean on large-scale porcelain tiles.
2. OFFERS A WIDE VARIETY OF USES
Large surfaces give way to a large number of innovative ideas regarding design, since they offer a large number of uses. It is possible to use porcelain tiles for the design of bathrooms, kitchens, countertops, work tables, among many other ideas, due to its size, consistency and high technical performance.
3. CREATE A CONTINUITY EFFECT
The large extensions in the porcelain pieces allow coating the surfaces making use of a small number of pieces. This translates into a smaller number of groupings, which makes it possible to create a higher visual level of uniformity. The reduction of the grouping of the pieces provokes a greater visual continuity that only large-format porcelain sheets can offer. In addition, as the pieces are of rectified joints, the separation between the sheets is extremely reduced. Despite this, we recommend that the filling between pieces be done with color or tone similar to the tile, giving the illusion that it is a single piece.
4. REDUCES INSTALLATION TIME
Another advantage that we can highlight about this type of format, is the reduction of installation time. When the porcelain tile is larger, it requires a smaller number of sheets, which in turn facilitates its assembly and minimizes the time dedicated to it.
5. SUITABLE FOR FACADES
The large-format porcelain stoneware can use great techniques when coating the facades, not only for its size, but for the benefits of strength and durability they provide.
6. LARGE FORMATS ARE TREND
Also, if you want to be up to date and follow the dictates of fashion, you should take note of the use of large porcelain formats. In them, you will find the answer to create spaces of great beauty and uniqueness. With large-format tiles you can unify spaces and are easy to integrate with other types of porcelain stoneware such as hydraulic tiles that provide a more vintage touch, to design original and modern rooms.
7. BRUTALIST STYLE
If you are a fan of the Brutalist Style, large-format tiles are your great ally. The crude and primitive nature of the brutalist style, which frequently uses materials from the past, fits perfectly with the technical characteristics of large formats, as well as with its wide range of applications.
8. MORE HYGIENIC
And, last but not least: large-format tiles are more hygienic. You wonder why? With less together, there are fewer areas in which to store the dirt. Therefore, large-scale porcelain stoneware is in itself more hygienic, providing, at the same time, a faster and easier cleaning.
