Mosaico Vero: Tiles & Sustainability

In the last few years sustainability and environmental consciousness in design have become the order of the day, especially in architecture and interior design. Sustainable design and tiles go hand. Live sustainably with Mosaico Vero

The sustainable choice 

Not only is sustainable design great for the environment, but it has also become the more popular, and more aesthetically pleasing option. When comparing tiles and other interior materials, tiles are a sustainable choice for flooring and wall coverings due to their durability, recyclability, and energy efficiency. Made from natural materials like clay and porcelain, tiles have a long lifespan, reducing the need for frequent replacements. 

They require minimal maintenance and can be easily cleaned with eco-friendly products, decreasing the use of harsh chemicals. Furthermore, their thermal mass properties help regulate indoor temperatures, reducing the need for heating and cooling, thus conserving energy. Overall, tiles offer a sustainable solution for both residential and commercial spaces.

 Another sustainable aspect of tiles is also the look. This is where wood look tiles take centre stage! 

The gorgeous Legno and Rovere ranges are the most realistic wood-lookalike tiles that you will encounter. The formats perfectly mimic real wood planks – Legno come in 200mmx1200mm and Rovere in 225mmx900mm.

What makes them so fantastically realistic is the amount of faces each has, so when laid in small or large areas, repetitive  patterns are minimised.  It also has a realistic wood texture that contributes to the natural look and feel. 

Choosing between vinyl & real natural wood or stunning wood-look tiles is a no-brainer. With the low maintenance and long lifespan, tiles are the best option for the long run. Not only can they be used indoors on walls and floors, but they can also be used outside, with no treatment, low maintenance and for an entire lifetime, if not longer.

For outdoor use, you can also check out the Trunk range – a realistic wooden decking porcelain tile. Anti-slip and perfect for use around a swimming pool – longer lasting and less maintenance than regular composite decking or real wood decking.
