Ragno’s New Concrete-Look Porcelain, Conkreto!
When selecting tile for your project, you want something that goes beyond sheer durability. You want something that will age like a fine wine, and get better over time. Not every tile product can provide you with both, but fortunately, Ragno is here to save the day. With their new Conkreto collection, you can now have the best of both worlds without the wait.
The Core Of Conkreto
We’ve written before about the visual appeal of concrete. Its constant presence in our urban lives makes it a calming background material, but the real material requires some maintenance in order to make it last long.
The Conkreto collection takes the positives of the concrete look and leaves the less desirable qualities behind by making their tiles out of porcelain. As a material, porcelain is hyper durable and requires little maintenance to keep up.
On top of that, while concrete flooring is trending right now, it is still expensive. Conkreto’s porcelain offers all of the visual advantages, plus it’s far easier on your budget. If you’re looking for a better price point and less maintenance, Conkreto pros outweigh the cons when compared to actual concrete.
The main appeal of this collection is its lived-in look. Conkreto uses color body porcelain tiles, which have continuous color from the glazed surface throughout the tile body. If the tile is impacted, it’s less noticeable due to the synchronization of the glaze and body colors.
This technique is utilized here with monochromatic tones to give a sense of age and history while maintaining a look that’s contemporary. Conkreto is perfect for minimalist spaces, or repurposed industrial spaces like warehouses and lofts.
Because it’s a high-fired ceramic, Conkreto is a natural product that has an inherent variation in shades. This variation gives the tiles an organic, free flowing aesthetic.
The Conkreto Collection at Rubble Tile
Conkreto comes in four colors: Charcoal, Greige (grey/beige), Grey, and White. Each one is a beautiful monochrome with a subtle color variation inspired by concrete. The tiles come in three large sizes in each color, and there’s also a triangular mosaic option. The variety in sizes and shapes allows you to turn what may seem like a limited pool into a vast array of pattern options.
Whether it’s in your kitchen, your bathroom, your bedroom, or any public space, Conkreto is ideal for any project. The organic expression in shade coupled with the illusion of concrete make it a solid choice for your design vision.
And don’t forget, the technique used to create this durable series and the power of porcelain ensure that your project will be a strong as it looks. Visit the Rubble Tile Showroom to check out Conkreto in person!
