Many Italgraniti collections range in colour to the darker end of the spectrum. Black stoneware surfaces immediately express elegance, refinement and sophistication. The result of a precise taste, based on a clearly defined style, the choice of black is often independent of any texture. All the products in our catalogue that can be labelled as "black" interpret this colour in many different shades, always consistent with the spirit of their collection.
Black should be regarded as a special colour, because it has different - even opposite - meanings in different cultures and ages. Either you love it or you hate it, perhaps because you mistakenly think it is too difficult to use plausibly in everyday places. If white brings light, black is identified as no light but, thanks to its use in fashion, it has become synonymous with elegance, an equation that is also true when we talk about the surfaces that cover the places we live, stay or work in. A floor in porcelain stoneware with black marble effect, for example, expresses sophistication, character, mystery, luxury.
When we talk about black stoneware it goes without saying that we mean a wide range of chromatic tones that are anything but compact (from slate to pure black, lead and anthracite), animated and varied by very different graphic textures (wood, stone, cement or metal effect); not to mention the veins which are naturally in sharp chromatic contrast, in the case of marbles such as Nero Marquina or Calacatta Black.
Why choose black stoneware flooring
A floor in black stoneware is inevitably destined to become the absolute star of the show. By strongly marking the space and subtracting brightness, it will tend to reduce the perceived size of the place, giving it a comfortable intimacy and a very strong visual impact, which is difficult to achieve with lighter colours. Nothing contributes as much to defining the identity of a room as a dark floor or a large dark wall. However, even a very dark floor, like a very light-coloured floor, requires careful and conscious choices regarding the nuances of walls, furniture and fabrics: black can easily be combined with the most intense shades of any other colour; more caution is needed in the case of delicate hues.
Whether you have a stone effect, a cement effect or a metal effect in mind, Italgraniti catalogue offers floor and wall tiles in black porcelain stoneware both in traditional thickness sizes and in large slabs with reduced thickness. Every shade of black is achieved with cutting-edge digital decoration technologies, with a synergy between colour, graphics, relief and gloss/matt effects that makes ceramic surfaces ultra-realistic and rich in textural sensations. As mentioned above, there is no colour variation in the case of black marble effect porcelain stoneware which faithfully reproduces the most fascinating natural marbles, both in the depth of the chromatic shade and in the clear brightness of the veins
