Cement sand screeds and concrete floor options have come a long way since those traditional flat, heavy, one-dimensional looks. Tones, textures and sizes in the world of concrete-look tiles have evolved, and Italtile is excited to introduce its most varianced and multidimensional concrete looks yet.
Hailing from Spain – a country renowned for its fashion and design leadership – Elementi pushes the frontiers of old-school concrete effects with digital technology that creates a neutral-toned graphic effect with highly detailed surfaces. Elementi crosses the borders of minimalism and artfully presents a palette that will harmonise beautifully with all styles: from urban and modern to classic and rustic.
The Elementi range creates a base canvas of multidimensional neutrals on which to layer a chosen style. With 1200×1200 dimensions, and rectified edges, this high-end porcelain tile delivers a near-seamless finish for a flawless roomscape with fewer grout lines. Being not just rectified but also large format, Elementi opens up the space under tiles, giving compact rooms the impression of spaciousness.
Variation from tile to tile is ensured with a number of individual faces cut from a large panel – what the manufacturers call “a canvas”. This means that there is less chance of repetition of pattern. With not just high design but also high-end technology, the Elementi range meets the European standards required for slip resistance, stain resistance, crack resistance, temperature resistance, and chemical resistance (in particular, swimming pool products).
Elementi is available in both matt and slip resistant options, in warm Beige and cool Pearl and Grey; each colourway is ideally suited to contemporary achromatic mood boards and will play a leading role in the rising Sanctuary Trend with its stress relief palette of calming neutrals.
