The beauty of terracotta floors: warmth and tradition

Between Tradition and Innovation: The Versatility of Terracotta Floors

Terracotta, a material with roots deeply anchored in the building tradition, has played a central role in the construction of rustic buildings, such as country farmhouses, and in the furnishing of open spaces. Its popularity is due to its natural resistance and warm aesthetic which gives rooms a welcoming and traditional look. Over time, terracotta has undergone an evolution, combining artisanal methods with modern technologies. This has led to the production of tiles which, while maintaining the authentic charm of traditional terracotta, satisfy the needs of contemporary living.

Terracotta today comes in various shapes, thicknesses and finishes, making it suitable for both interiors and exteriors. Clay extraction and firing techniques have been perfected to produce tiles of different thicknesses, suitable for various uses. For example, the thicker terracotta is ideal for outdoor floors, while the thinner one is better suited to interiors. The variety of formats, from classic squares to hexagonal shapes, offers multiple installation options, allowing you to create unique and personalized designs.

Furthermore, terracotta is appreciated for its ability to integrate with different furnishing styles, from rustic to ultra-modern, thanks to its natural color which varies from intense red to straw yellow, depending on the composition of the clay and the firing process. This allows you to create warm and welcoming environments, which reflect a fusion between ancient and modern. Ultimately, terracotta is not just a witness to the past, but a versatile material that continues to play an important role in contemporary architecture and furnishings, bringing a touch of history and warmth to every space.

Choice and Characteristics: How to Enhance Spaces with Cotto

Terracotta, with its warm aesthetic and versatility, offers a range of options to enhance indoor and outdoor environments. The choice of size, color and finish of terracotta significantly affects the look and feel of the space in which it is used. The formats vary from classic squares to hexagonal shapes, and can be laid in different ways, such as the traditional diagonal laying or the modern herringbone laying, allowing you to create unique and personalized designs. The shades of terracotta range from intense red to straw yellow, varying according to the geographical origin of the clay and the cooking methods.

These different shades allow you to combine terracotta with various furnishing styles, from rustic to contemporary. For example, a warmer and more intense terracotta can be combined with wooden furniture to create a welcoming and traditional environment, while lighter and more neutral tones pair well with modern and minimalist furniture, creating a fascinating contrast. From a practical point of view, the maintenance of terracotta is essential to preserve its beauty over time. Regular cleaning with specific products and treatment with sealants can help maintain the resistance of the terracotta and its vivid colour.

Furthermore, it is important to consider the appropriate treatment depending on the use of the terracotta, both indoors and outdoors, to ensure its durability.
