Marble-effect and wood-effect kitchen


Interior designers are often faced with a dilemma when it comes to combining marble effects and wood effects in kitchens.

These textures are widely used for furnishings and for kitchen countertops in particular as they closely resemble wood and marble, but do not require the same level of care and maintenance as wood or marble, nor do they involve exploiting natural resources.
Wood-effect and marble-effect porcelain stoneware surfaces are the ideal choice for anyone seeking an elegant and sustainable design for their home

By faithfully recreating the look of wood and marble, porcelain stoneware gives kitchens a warm and cozy feel while still being sophisticated and modern.
