Choosing a continuous surface is not easy. Few simple but effective tips to help you.
An activity of restructuring or creation is demanding and complex.
The level of difficulty rises when we find ourselves choosing which type of continuous surface to use.
This is because coatings and floors significantly delimit the environments where we live or where we work.
It is, in fact, a common opinion in the world of interior design that the difference in the atmosphere of the space in which we live is precisely the surface.
What, then, are the factors to be evaluated in the selection process
Color is important because we know that each portion can be seen as an element in its own right and consequently treated.
It should not be underestimated how color, however, can tire even in a short time.
We therefore suggest using neutral tones and using saturated ones (eg yellow, red and blue…) for small surfaces.
Furthermore, color can be used to “invert” the characteristics of a home.
For example, cold tones can be used for homes that are exposed to the south or subject to a Mediterranean climate and vice versa.
However, the advice not to use color in the kitchen is always valid as the food must remain the main protagonist.

Also because, below, he will define the choices to be addressed based on the destination of the space (eg. Sleeping area, living area, office …) or the use of other materials.
Needless to hide it: companies create their own catalogues and collections based on trends that vary according to the changes going through society.
So much will be influenced by the current styles.
One example is the trend of creating bathrooms with dark colors and matt effects.
The continuous surfaces, then, are water-repellent materials and therefore suitable for creating modern and clean environments.
We are currently focused towards a sustainable future, through the use of renewable resources, materials and production processes.
This is also possible in the world of continuous surfaces, being able to choose producers who follow a green philosophy.
They are those who use production processes that protect the environment as much as possible and use renewable raw materials, less dangerous and impacting than those of chemical origin.
This aspect is increasingly valued by designers and end users as they live the environments by moving, sleeping and breathing.
