Ceramic surfaces – qualities and applications

What are ceramic surfaces

Modern day design is mostly focused on three aspects, these are simplicity, functionality and minimalism. When you combine these three very often you end up with super-sterile interiors which somehow appear soulless and cold. Although, modern rules of design can be good, very often people forget that there’s more to home interiors than order, sterile level of cleanliness and practicality bought at the cost of mood and atmosphere. To have your home interiors truly yours and full of body and welcome you need to add something that can set them off and bring a little of chaos into modern all too-orderly interiors. You can achieve this for example with ceramic surfaces.

Although, at first sight it may appear that ceramic surfaces, with their smoothness and clear lines fall under modern day design rules, you can use them to do just the opposite. Ceramic surfaces, which are made of clay that’s properly modified and engineered to resemble solidity and smoothness, can make a huge difference. Additionally, if ceramic surfaces are expertly engineered they can be highly durable and resistant. Through proper modification ceramic surfaces can withstand very hard conditions and factors, both external and internal. Let’s illustrate this with proper example. What are the most commonly encountered ceramics’ applications?

Ceramic surfaces – applications

Ceramic applications are many, but one of the most popular ones are ceramic worktops. You can find ceramic worktops in bathrooms or in kitchens. Such surfaces are especially popular in kitchens since they are resistant to heat, moist and bacteria. They are properly modified and can easily withstand kitchen conditions which, if you’re really cooking there, can be very harmful. Still, ceramic surfaces are simplistic and practical. What can make them truly yours in modern design kitchen? To jazz up the design and give it a human touch you can think of unusual shapes of your kitchen worktop or catchy colours that at first sight may look out of place and too visibly contrast with the whole interior. When you play with what’s to be expected you can break the sterile air of uniform modern design.
