14 September 2023

Let us consider the design possibilities of a noble material, full of charm and harmony, a natural conductor of warmth that also transmits its positive effects on the people who come into contact with it, both in domestic and commercial spaces: we are talking about wood. 

If until recently the use of wood in the bathroom could raise strong doubts due to its delicacy, this is no longer the case today - thanks to the use of wood-effect porcelain stoneware.  Advanced technology in the field of ceramics makes it possible to retain the charm and comfort of this material while adding the technical qualities of a durable, waterproof, stain-resistant, mould-resistant and easy-to-clean surface. 

In this article you will find out everything you need to know about the extraordinary properties of this material and why it is now considered the ideal choice for a trendy, refined and cosy bathroom.

Wood-effect porcelain stoneware: the technically perfect material for your bathroom

Unlike natural wood - which undergoes changes over time both in its colouring and in its structure - porcelain stoneware is more resistant and durable: no colour changes, absorption values close to 0 and no need for constant maintenance with special treatments.

Choosing porcelain stoneware will also ensure high standards of hygiene because it is naturally non-porous, thus hindering the proliferation of germs and bacteria. 

Wood-effect porcelain stoneware: how to create harmony and well-being in the bathroom

Thanks to its wide range of finishes, colours and sizes, wood-effect porcelain stoneware is very well suited for bathroom furnishing.

From lived-in wood, rich in grain and knots, to more homogeneous and minimal wood. From the warmer tones of natural oak to more contemporary tones veering towards grey. Thus, no limits, no aesthetic compromises for designers and planners; an example of this is porcelain stoneware from the Cocoon collection, which faithfully reproduces all the aesthetic properties of wood. 

Evocative geometric patterns are able to generate, for example, seductive interweavings with the typical elements of natural materials, evoking knots, veins and nuances with a lived-in, refined and modern look.

For a modern bathroom, an aesthetic choice could be to alternate the installation of wood-effect tiles with different materials such as concrete, resins or natural stone. Another trendy solution we suggest is the use of light-coloured surfaces with soft, slightly desaturated graphic patterns inspired by the evaporation of oak wood, such as the Arthis collection. The resulting effect is astonishing. A sense of intimate, whispered elegance pervades the entire room, making your modern bathroom the ideal place to find comfort and relaxation.

Applicability of wood-effect porcelain stoneware in the bathroom

The aesthetic versatility of wood-effect porcelain stoneware is not only limited to the different types of finishes, rather also to its installation because it can be used both as a floor and wall tiling. One example above all is the slatted decoration Stave 3D, similar to a wall panelling, from the Cocoon collection, in a matt finish, which can be widely combined thanks to a palette of five nuances, exploiting the typical relief texture of wood inlays.

In the latter case, the bathroom wall will become a very important decorative element because it decisively contributes to establishing the desired style. 

For example, if continuity is chosen by installing the same tile on the floor and wall, the resulting effect will be warmer and cosier. If, on the other hand, you decide to combine the wood-effect floor with a concrete or stone-effect wall, a greater contrast will be created, resulting in a more modern solution with a strong visual and chromatic impact.

Summing up

Regardless of the wood essence you wish to install and the materials with which to combine it, choosing wood-effect porcelain stoneware to decorate your modern bathroom is a solution that offers manifold advantages (technical, aesthetic, design). 

Caesar offers a complete range of wood-effect collections specially designed in terms of size and surface quality.
