Discover how to use white to create projects with a modern style or retro character
White is often chosen by those who, after a long search for inspiration and after discussions with an interior design professional, decide to restyle their kitchen.
This type of project may not only involve the strictly functional areas for cooking, washing and storage of food and dishes, but also the adjacent areas of the dining room and living room, creating a completely renovated space with a bright, modern character. White can therefore be an excellent choice in various respects.
If the kitchen is an independent room, separated from the rest of the house by opaque or transparent partitions, a white covering can certainly create a visual extension of the space, seemingly eliminating its boundaries.
If, on the other hand, the kitchen occupies a corner or a larger section of the living area, the choice to extend the white colour not only to the surfaces, but also to furnishings, can create a sense of continuity or contrast with the relaxation space.
However, there is more than one shade of white. The ultimate neutral colour, white can be interpreted in multiple ways and by tangibly evoking different styles and atmospheres, in a constant relationship with natural light.
Thus Ragno white is featured in the various porcelain stoneware and ceramic products, which are each recognisable by their specific sizes and textures. The first choice for lovers of minimal style is the Off collection, in total white in the rectified 30×90 cm size.
In the 7×28 cm majolica-look brick tile in the Eden collection, fans of vintage style will find the neutral shade that they have always been looking for: soft to the eye and touch and able to leave indelible memories with an unmistakable reference to the past, each tile is characterized by an imperfect perimeter.
Those who not only appreciate visual effects, but also the inestimable communicative value of touch, will love the delicately coated white in the Tempera collection and that of the resin-effect Flex ceramic with its concrete, contemporary and potentially coordinated look, contrasting with the accent colours available in the catalogue.
White transposed onto pure material can follow two different paths starting from a single inspiration: a reference to the past. On the one hand, the Cocciopesto collection ceramic tiles interpret Italy’s distinctive history of craftsmanship on the surface of the 40×120 cm slabs; on the other, the Imperiale and Bistrot collections combine the purity of white with the idea of luxury, preciousness and shine historically associated with marble.
