Millennial home décor: multifunctional spaces and eco-friendly materials

The new generations, which today account for a significant number of consumers, are proving to have needs and values that reflect a different approach to the home, no longer conceived just as a place to rest and spend time with family, but also as a workplace, so this requires a rethink of the way we design living spaces.

The new décor trends among Millennials place the accent on the green economy, evident in the choice of eco-sustainable materials, the need for multifunctional spaces and the trend towards investing in the creation of smart homes equipped with home automation technology, with a view to reducing consumption and wasting less energy, and able to combine comfort with improved safety and security. Partially open walls, double-sided fireplaces, modular systems or mezzanines are among the solutions most frequently applied to separate different areas and design flexible living spaces.

The new generations customize their homes in every detail, in pursuit of an imperfect aesthetic obtained by selecting furnishing elements with a strong identity, mixing styles with a minimalist or boho chic allure with an industrial mood characterized by chrome and metal surfaces to create sophisticated, striking mix and match looks.

Another décor solution adopted with increasing frequency by the new generations consists of indoor spaces that continue outdoors, expanding the perception of space and offering increased comfort and practical appeal all year round. 

Porcelain stoneware is flexible, versatile and durable, offering excellent performance and a wide range of surfaces, formats and thicknesses, making it suitable for a variety of applications other than floors and walls. Along with furniture, accessories and drapes, Casalgrande Padana ceramic tiles are an authentic décor element, ideal for forming the backdrop to a bookcase, tiling walls and doors flush with the walls, vertical, sloping or curved surfaces, entire walls or sections of them. They’re able to meet the needs and tastes of a new generation of consumers looking for custom décor solutions.

Technological advances and the availability of tiles in large sizes (60×120 cm, 120×120 cm, 120×240 cm, 120×278 cm and 160×320 cm) with thicknesses of 6 mm and 12 mm, have allowed for their use in endless interior design solutions, making them one of the most suitable covering options for tables, wall cupboards, worktops and hobs, as well as for backsplashes or entire walls.

Made entirely from natural materials, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware is recyclable, eco-sustainable and non-allergenic, and does not alter over time. It is non-absorbent and easy to clean, and thanks to the Bios Antibacterial® treatment (available on request), it is able to eliminate 99% of the bacteria present on the ceramic surface, which also prevents the formation of mould, fungi and yeasts. The excellent resistance to loads, temperature changes, weather, chemicals, stains and sea air, and the extraordinary abrasion resistance and bending strength make Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware ideal for tiling floors and walls both indoors and outdoors.
