Kitchen tiles, read on to find out how to choose and clean them.


The kitchen as well as the bathroom is a complex environment, consisting of large surfaces but also small spaces and small portions of flooring. In the design phase, we always think in detail, relying on small formats that allow for flexibility and freedom of choice.


The nature of the room is another factor influencing the choice of material. From this point of view, the kitchen presents itself as a:

  • sensitive place
  • exposed to temperature changes
  • exposed to shocks such as the worktop where food is prepared most of the time.

For this reason, aesthetic considerations must go hand in hand with more practical considerations by focusing on solid, resistant and easy-to-clean materials. Here are the best materials according to Fangorosa:

  • Glazed Terracotta is the most suitable material because it allows easy cleaning and long-term durability. Glazing eliminates the porosity of the underlying material and creates perfect protection.
  • Umbrian Terracotta also proves to be a suitable material; originating as an outdoor material it has frost-resistant properties and great resistance to temperature changes.

Through collaboration with artisans and designers from all over Italy, Fangorosa has created unusual shapes that are well suited to the creation of a designer kitchen.

Here are the most interesting formats for kitchen tiles:

  • Hexagon 5 cm side in Concrete;
  • Lath 5×30 cm and 5x15cm in Terracotta;
  • Square 10×10 in Terracotta;
  • Square 10×10 in Glazed Terracotta;
  • Square 10×10 in Sicilian Cement;
