From concrete-effect to floral decors: Alchimia by Marazzi offers infinite solutions

Sometimes covering even just a wall, a corner or a detail of an interior with a special finish is enough to give a design scheme an extra creative, original touch.

Today we will be discussing a very innovative product, in an unusual ceramic size, and solutions with great potential for both residential and commercial interiors. Our focus is the Marazzi Alchimia porcelain stoneware collection, created to offer a vast array of avant-garde decorative options in a new large slimline size, 60×180 cm, suitable both for covering new interiors and for redecoration projects.

We will start with the concrete effect: very popular with lovers of contemporary style due to its neutral colour and tactile look, it can be used to tile whole rooms, such as a bathroom, or for giving added personality to just one wall of an interior.

Now the ceramic concrete-effect becomes even more exquisite thanks to the Alchimia Raw and Wabi three-dimensional structures, inspired respectively by the trowel-levelled look of micro-cement and the distinctive marks left by formwork. An excellent alternative to resin wall coverings, they are available in all the collection's 4 shades: White, Grey, Greige and Fango.

For those seeking a more colourful, decorative yet still minimalist option, an uneven geometrical pattern on a large scale may be a perfect option. The Arky finish combines neutral, dusty shades in a large geometric pattern that is perfect for covering a whole wall with porcelain stoneware to create a striking backdrop.

For anyone wishing to add a note of more vivid colour, we suggest the Gipsy decor, with its large-scale floral pattern. This can provide an excellent idea not only for a bedroom or bathroom wall, or to add a touch of colour to a living-room, but also for bar and restaurant interiors: in this case, porcelain stoneware contributes a vibrant, colourful note, in a material which is much harder-wearing and easier to clean than wallpaper.

For lovers of cement tiles and vintage style, the Boho decor is the perfect solution. Available in two colour variants, warm or cold, the patchwork decor is a firm stoneware favourite for giving character to kitchen backsplashes and bathroom walls, or for creating decorative details with a retro flavour.

Another, more classical – but still exquisite – idea for decorating with ceramics is covering with mosaics: traditional with small chips or small rectangles mounted on mesh in a herringbone pattern, available in all the collection colours, or in the Dégradé version: a perfect mix of the entire selection of shades.
