After a long day, once we arrive home, we do need a relaxing space to rest. The bathrooms have become in these personal oasis, and its cladding and decoration should be in line with these values.
As it is a wet area, bathroom floors and walls, especially the shower floor area, must have the highest technical performance to be preserved over time.
The first step when choosing shower floors and other bathroom coverings is to study the available space carefully, since, depending on its characteristics, we can choose a type of format or design. If it is a small bathroom, light colours will visually increase the space and to provide a little more dynamism, small pieces will give that retro-modern touch so sought after by professionals.
Natural product line, Gresan, it is characterized by its innovative small format pieces and original finishes with designs inspired by nature. Gresan Small Tiles features geometric shapes that combine the classic style of extruded stoneware tiles with the most avant-garde trends for shower floors, indoors, outdoors, and even inside swimming pools.
By combining formats, colours and ways of laying the ceramic pieces, a very modern and eye-catching effect can be achieved. One of the advantages of using the Gresan Small Tile material for shower floors is that it has 6×24.5 cm strips which, depending on whether they are laid vertically, horizontally or in a herringbone pattern, can create different effects.
