Casalgrande Padana has drawn inspiration from the allure and the most beautiful images of stones, with their inexhaustible power and luminous beauty that highlights traces of memory anchored to the past. We have used this inspiration to create a wide range of stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles featuring technological innovation and sophisticated design, made up of 21 collections, 120 different textures, 6 surface finishes and 18 formats (from 15x15 cm up to 160x320 cm).

From floorings to coverings, from indoors to outdoors, each surface is covered with porcelain stoneware tiles that take their inspiration from the natural elegance of stone; combining comfort and practical appeal, the total-look effect will bring extraordinary continuity to the style of your settings, allowing you to create single-material spaces with an engaging, timeless charm.

Minimal or urban chic style? Go for porcelain stoneware

The various collections of stone-effect ceramic tiles by Casalgrande Padana open the door to a wide variety of combinations able to satisfy any furnishing style, from the most traditional to the ultra-contemporary, modern minimal or urban chic style.

Rigour, elegance and modern appeal are the hallmark features of minimalist style; a small number of functional furnishing items that complement one another perfectly, with squared lines, wall-hung units and bathroom fittings, pale, smooth colours, floors and coverings in the stone-effect stoneware Casalgrande Padana offers in its Pietre di Paragone and Pietre Etrusche collections.

The colour of choice for an industrial-style home is grey: in all its endless shades, it provides the perfect complement for both the metal of the lamps and the white, beige or black colours of the furnishings, walls and floors. For the living area, Casalgrande Padana offers the stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles of the Pietre Etrusche collection, which in the colour Tuscania teams beautifully with the neutral colour of the walls and the rest of the furnishings, creating a bright, no-frills setting.

Characteristic of industrial chic stile is the open-space loft apartment, the hallmark features of which are the large open spaces, high ceilings, large windows and a number of industrial elements maintained, such as the raw concrete finishes and exposed bricks. To give the settings the charm and character typical of metropolitan style, Casalgrande Padana solutions offer continuity between the flooring and covering materials, with the porcelain stoneware tiles in the Pietre Etrusche collection, in the colour Sovana, inspired by the beauty of warm, earthy colours.

Extremely adaptable from an aesthetic point of view, thanks to the reduced thickness of the tile (4.9 mm and 6.5 mm) and the versatility of the large formats (from 60x120 cm up to 160x320 cm), Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware is suitable for covering all kinds of walls and work surfaces, including tops and tables; it is also an excellent choice with underfloor heating systems.

The outdoor life
Outdoor areas provide a sensation of wellbeing that expands the limits of the interiors, so gardens, patios, verandas, terraces and balconies become an extension of our homes in which to spend alfresco evenings in good company for an aperitif or dinner, enjoying the heady aroma of fruit ripened in the sun, or the sweet fragrance of lavender. Thanks to the natural surface for interiors and anti-slip finish for outdoors of the stone-effect ceramic tiles by Casalgrande Padana, a sense of visual continuity can be created, shaping an interesting, smooth total-look effect.

A carefully balanced range of warm colours, in which behind each veining pattern lies a story able to enrich the setting with a vintage allure, combining smoothly with all kinds of furnishing styles, from classic to modern, as well as country and rustic, restoring a fresh, original look to each setting.

Casalgrande Padana offers a wide range of stone-effect monolith tiles selected from the collections Amazzonia, Pietra Baugè and Pietre di Sardegna: with a thickness of 20 mm, perfectly squared and rectified and with an anti-slip finish, they are ideal for all sorts of project requirements, creating continuity between interiors and the flooring of outdoor areas such as terraces, patios, verandas or walkways, laid both on grass and gravel. Thanks to the 20 mm thickness, Casalgrande Padana tiles can be laid on screed with glue, guaranteeing excellent resistance to loads, or dry-laid directly on sand, gravel or grass, thus obtaining a flooring that can be walked on immediately without the need for screed or the use of mortar and glue. Finally, thanks to the dedicated polypropylene (PP) supports available in a number of different heights (fixed or adjustable), it is possible to create raised flooring for outdoors, and to install electrical and plumbing systems in the gap created beneath the floor.

Maximum hygiene in the home
Suitable for any environment, from the bathroom to the kitchen, both indoors and outdoors, Bios Antibacterial® is able to eliminate the four main strains of bacteria, combat unpleasant odours and the growth of mould, yeast and fungi; in addition, the benefits are even more impressive in the presence of humidity, a traditionally fertile environment for the development of bacteria.

Excellent technical characteristics
Available for both traditional installation on screed with glue and dry interlocking installation, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles do not age and are easy to install and to clean. They are non-allergenic, fire-resistant, unalterable, non-absorbent, and have excellent bending strength and resistance to temperature fluctuations.
