1. Renovating the living room at home by just changing the furniture is not enough

Before carrying out an elegant restyling of your living room it is necessary to study the spaces, understand the room's liveability and study the lighting effects. In this renovation phase, the choice of new porcelain stoneware finishes for the floor and wall coverings guarantees practically infinite advantages and design opportunities, not only for aesthetic reasons but also because of the exceptional technical properties guaranteed by the use of this material.

2. Choosing porcelain stoneware: its great advantages (not just aesthetic)

Porcelain stoneware tiles are, in fact, ideal for domestic environments because they are fireproof, impervious to stains, resistant to heat, do not undergo colour changes over time and are easy to clean (so simple that a 30-second cartoon explains how to do it, you can find it here).

3. Personalise walls and surfaces with a wide range of effects, colours and formats of porcelain stoneware tiles

The transversal use of porcelain stoneware tiles is another strong point of this extraordinary material. The wide range of effects (the oxidations of metal, the veining of marble and the cracks and outgrowths typical of cement), colours and sizes of Caesar living room tiles make it possible to decorate not only floors, but any other surface and wall in the living room to create unique compositions.

4. Bring out the elegance of the furniture elements

In a living room with a contemporary design, the creation of empty spaces with a few furnishings and accessories together with the choice of stoneware tiles in neutral tones can make the room look elegant and refined. If your aim is to enhance valuable wooden furniture items, for example, the appeal of the essentiality of clay in Caesar's PRIMA collection could be the right solution for you.

5. The stone effect: an 'elegant' return to materiality

Resistant and refined at the same time, stone is ideal for furnishing a convivial environment such as the living room. A choice that takes us back in time. A true return to materiality. Caesar is reinterpreting the essentiality and classicism of this material to give life in a modern key to KEY_MOOD, a tile collection characterised by very delicate and refined patterns.

6. Give your living room a touch of elegance and harmony with wood-effect porcelain stoneware

Wood has always been a synonym of elegance and refinement, capable of evoking pleasant sensations linked to nature and relaxation.

Ceramiche Caesar's collections are able to faithfully reproduce the beauty of natural wood or wood transformed by the hand of man, freshly cut, aged or modern. The visual and tactile impact of the surfaces is remarkable. The proposals of the wood-effect collections ARTHIS, HIKE and LIFE with their delicate nuances are able to enhance the furnishings that complete the living room, giving the whole room a cosy, elegant and harmonious mood. The latest addition to Caesar's extensive portfolio of wood-effect proposals is Cocoon, which with the Stave decor, available in both traditional and 3D versions, allows you to create a refined boiserie in your rooms.

Extremely elegant is the combination of the dark wood effect porcelain stoneware floor with the white walls and furniture.

7. Elegance and essentiality for your living room: the cement effect

Another recent trend for living rooms with a minimal and elegant style is the use of Caesar's Cemento & Design Look effect porcelain stoneware tiles. Intended as a symbol of modernity, realism and essentiality, this solution thanks to its infinite shades of grey (and not only, just think of the nuances of the MATERICA and JOIN collections) makes the surfaces easy to match in any context: from industrial to classic style.

8. The elegance and originality of the metal effect

Defined by time and man's workmanship, the metal effect of porcelain stoneware surfaces is perfect for adding originality and elegance to your dream living room. Thanks to continuous research in the field of ceramics and the use of advanced technology, Caesar is able to realistically reproduce metal slabs with textures of great visual and tactile impact.

Caesar's ALCHEMY and RELATE FLAME collections offer multiple solutions to create a trendy living room with industrial charm. The elegance of the metal effect lies in its rich colour variations and the infinite combination possibilities it offers. Its versatility in decoration is undoubtedly one of the strong points of this finish.

9. How to create continuity between rooms thanks to the marble effect

Deciding to use marble effect porcelain stoneware to give refinement and elegance to the living room of your home is certainly an excellent solution. In many cases, it is a furnishing choice that is able to create continuity and uniformity between rooms (for example, between the kitchen and the living room) by exploiting the gloss and monochromes of the tiles. This is precisely the case with ANIMA FUTURA, a collection of timeless elegance that manages to perfectly reproduce the veining of marble with truly impressive results.

10. The elegance of porcelain stoneware: an eco-sustainable choice

Choosing porcelain stoneware made by Caesar as a material for furnishing your living room is, finally, an eco-sustainable choice because it is a product made from natural raw materials such as sands, clays and feldspars, it respects the environment, does not contain plastic and does not release any organic substances into the environment (VOC free). Its production process is constantly optimised to respect the environment: Caesar has a closed process water circuit, which allows the total recycling of the water used and also achieves 100% recycling of ceramic waste.
