Ca Pietra Kinfolk Finland Teak and limestone floors

Wood & Stone

Combining wood and stone creates a natural zen-like feel in the bathroom, perfect to mimic relaxing spa vibes. The look has been created here with our Ca Pietra Kinfolk Porcelain tiles in Teak. The skinny wood-look slats are reminiscent of an Alpine Spa backdrop and contrast sublimely with the deep, moody tones of grey and charcoal found in Ca Pietra’s Korfe Limestone Honed tiles.


Marble mixed with metal tile design

Marble & Metal

The gloss of marble and shine of metal come together to create truly illuminating bathroom design. Luxurious, light and space enhancing, choose large format tiles and the look becomes even more impressive. Created here with our Porcelanosa Calacatta Gold Polished marble tiles alongside our Oxide Brown Nature tiles which are the perfect translation of oxidised steel in large-format porcelain tile format.

wood and concrete tile design

Wood & Concrete

The contrasting traits of wood and concrete, and the resulting juxtaposition when the two are combined in tile design, is a winning mix in bathroom design. The softness of wood and the strongness of concrete become strikingly complementary. Wood effect tiles enable you to bring wood into bathroom design worry-free. This beautiful large format parquet floor has been created with our Porcelanosa Par-Ker Bremen Natural Oak tiles. The concrete is then delivered in grand scale with our XL Fiori Di Bosco wall tiles in impressive 120x270cm format.

Savoy marble tiles with white gloss tiles

Marble & Brick

Turn up your marble effect tile design choosing a heavily veined style that will sit commandingly against the simplicity of glossy white brick style tiles. Here the look is created with our Ca Pietra Savoy Porcelain tiles. The Savoy design evokes a classic Italian marble feel and the wine-red veining creates serious elegance and sophistication with its high gloss finish. It’s been perfectly paired here with the contrasting simplicity of our Ca Pietra Fondant Ceramic White brick tiles.


Image Dark Manhattan Cognac & Barcelona E tiles

Wood, Stone & Decorative Detailing

Adding a little bit of decorative detailing into the mix to add playfulness to the stronger materials is a style winner. This three-way look has been created here starting with our Porcelanosa Image Dark Stone tiles adding some drama on the walls. Warming tones are introduced with wood panelling on the walls created using our Manhattan Cognac wood effect planks. Then an injection of fun fills the floors with our Barcelona E decorative tiles.
