Refin takes almost a synaesthetic approach, which has faced up to the contemporary interior design trends of recent years with a strong material search aimed at proposing wood look porcelain tiles that are not simply a reproduction but rather a re-processing or, better, an evolution of the natural material. Embarking on this route at a time when wood-look was not a common option on the market, the company has striven constantly, assisted by its cutting-edge production potential, to overcome the concept of “copy”: the result is a variety of collections of wood-look porcelain tiles in which the material renews and is enhanced by unique suggestions.
Porcelain tiles are made from a hard, non-porous compact ceramic body, which is highly technical with optimum mechanical and aesthetic characteristics. Technological innovation in ceramic production today allows for the production of slabs and slats that offer a faithful representation of the unique look of wood present in nature, combining this with the performance boasted by stoneware. This result therefore allows for the realisation of porcelain floor tiles and gives indoor and outdoor spaces alike the aesthetic and sensory characteristics and sensations of heat and intimacy that only real wood can convey and does so even in the types of ambiance in which the use of stoneware is without doubt to be preferred insofar as it is more hard-wearing, resistant and easier to maintain that natural alternatives.
Waterproofing and stain resistance, coupled with resistance to wear and tear, impacts and breakage stress are the main advantages of porcelain tiles that looks like wood, as well as the fact that they are fireproof and do not change, even when exposed to the most extreme weather conditions, remaining unaltered with the passing of time and weathering. Additionally, in terms of environmental impact, as ceramic is an inert material produced using raw materials that are easily found in nature, Refin’s stoneware is a truly environment-friendly choice.
Some lines are marked by the original chromatic ranges and aesthetic appeal of the essences inspiring them, like sessile oak in the Deck collection, chestnut in Giant and oak in the Trail line; others re-create different types of inlays or wooden sizes, from the French herringbone or Hungarian point of Chevron to the coffered floor tiles of Mansion and Baita.
Then there some collections that interpret the many variants the material takes on according to its use and the way it is treated: in Larix, the slats reproduce both natural, freshly-cut larch and when used indoors, sheltered from atmospheric agents, or outdoors, when it becomes grey in the shaded areas and burnished when exposed to the sun; Kasai, on the other hand, offers burnt cedar wood, inspired by Yaksugi, the Japanese technique employed to burn the slats, so as to protect and preserve them.
Other collections then offer interpretations of older, aged wood bearing the mark of time, like the Bois slats of the Epoque line and the worn textures of Wood², an unusual range of square wood look tiles.
Tile flooring is a fundamental part of a building, determining the aesthetic style of both residential and commercial settings.
The choice of floor tiling must be made according to the end result you wish to achieve, and according to the furnishing of each setting, which should as far as possible match the porcelain tiles, to create a uniform, harmonious effect; when replacing a floor in a renovation project or laying a new floor in a newly built property, there is a vast range to choose from, allowing you to create your own personal style.
