Gayafores' Exterior Universes
Gayafores presents a selection of non-slip paving that will convert patios, terraces and balconies into essential new elements in any home.
As all good Mediterraneans, it is enough for temperatures to increase slightly and the first rays of sun to appear to awaken in us the desire to open up our homes and move our family and social life outdoors.
Whether in homes in the countryside with a garden or large terraces, or in town apartments with interior balconies or patios, each square metre of open air is today considered to be a valuable treasure. Turning them into a place of disconnection and relaxation will only require a little ingenuity and knowledge of current decorative materials and styles.
The home opens to the outside
Contemporary architecture is firmly committed to promoting the connection between interiors and exteriors, creating open and bright spaces that are delightful to live in. In the cities, life has to make do with patios and terraces, which become sources of natural light and constitute private universes for enjoying life outdoors without leaving the house.
The key to this interchange between the interior and the exterior lies in generating a continuity between spaces that provides greater homogeneity and visual scope. In this context, Gayafores ceramics, and especially porcelain stoneware, play an important role because of the non-slip technology applied to the collections. These enable the interior universe to spread towards the outdoors.
The versatility and wide range of finishes and styles that can be found in ceramics today enable environments to be designed that are aligned with the latest interior design trends and integrate spaces in which the line between the inside and the outside fades away.
✎ Below you will find some of Gayafores´ suggestions for exteriors and terraces in 2019.
