The importance of lighting in ceramic spaces

Light plays an essential role in all interior designs. Good lighting in ceramic spaces helps us create comfortable and bright rooms.

Far from the darker designs and limited by walls of years past, today we seek to create large spaces where light plays an important role. A trend that focuses on enhancing the lighting in the spaces. In this respect, among its many qualities, ceramic is an ideal material to enhance lighting.

It is an important tool from which we can take advantage of all its qualities:


Achieving larger spaces


Small rooms benefit the most from this combination of lighting and ceramic. Thanks to light, they can be converted into larger spaces, both by using natural and artificial light, reflecting it on ceramic floor and wall tiles with light colors.

An example of this can be seen with the cement effect ceramic tiles of the Bali collection. Its neutral colors together with a good lighting achieve a greater amplitude in any space.


Creating optical sensations


Light reflected in ceramic can create innovative and attractive focal points. As in the case of the Creta décor from the Onyx ceramic collection. This design has an effect that we have called “shadow” in which a decorative motif can be seen depending on how the light hits the piece.

In addition, the shading or gradients of ceramic pieces such as those in the San Francisco collection are also enhanced with lighting to create optical sensations that are so trendy in interior design.


Generating metallic sparkles


Metallic effects combined with good lighting in the spaces are the key to perceive the metallic sparkles, achieving flashes and magical sensations that only light and ceramics can offer.

An example of this can be seen in the Silver finish of the Metal 2 collection. In this case, when the light reflects on the piece, it confuses the eye to the point of not being able to distinguish the ceramic from the real metal.

A similar effect is created with the Akila collection. A risky choice for its innovative lappato effect, with which we get spectacular metallic reflections.

Depending on how the light reflects, the pieces create flashes in the shape of rays that continue between pieces.
