This year the metallic and material effect are the real protagonists and I love it! For this reason I have developed a new and deep interest in Corten effect interior coatings! Let’s see together what it is.
What is Corten?
Corten, Cor.Ten, technically, is a metal alloy made up of steel and other materials including copper, characterized by high performance standards.
The aesthetic appearance of Corten is due to oxidation in contact with the weather, but it does not corrode the material but stops, leaving the characteristic reddish-brown color, tending to copper color precisely.
The ability to withstand intact in time and its eye-catching and modern look make it perfect for indoor wall linings.
On the market there are also gres tiles of prestigious brands such as Marazzi for example, synthetic panels and the like made with corten effect, perfect for covering domestic or commercial interior, giving a much appreciated and versatile appearance.
Not only are there paints and products that reproduce the oxidation process on a variety of materials, so you can have the Corten effect wherever you want, creating unique and unparalleled mixes and shades.
This rusty, Corten-specific effect is already a must-have among decorators, designers and architects and workmen! And in fact I really like it too!
Corten effect walls: how to decorate home interiors
The Corten interior effect walls are perfect for any domestic, but also commercial. Their versatility makes them adaptable to different styles of furniture and ensuring timeless effect.
The bathroom in Corten
For example, to create an enchanting bath, it is best to choose a porcelain stoneware like the Marazzi Storm model to cover the floor. With this nuance, you can match, to cover the inside of the shower, the Gala model always of Marazzi, creating a pendant and contrasting the whites of the sanitary ware, so the bathroom can become in Vintage, Industrial or Ethnic style, according to rest of the furnishings and complements.
The bedroom in Corten
For a cozy bedroom, to be furnished in a modern or traditional style, I think instead of the Corten Cotto d’Este model for flooring, refined and that will hardly tire.
The living in Corten
In the living room, however, the winning idea can be decorating a single wall. I imagine the one that welcomes a practical and functional bio ethanol fireplace, or the one that houses the TV and the fitted wall.
For this coating are perfect the ceramic tiles, such as the Oxide Corten model by Iperceramica, or Novacolor’s Ironic painting.
In any case, it is recommended to create a single Corten style wall, leaving it in contrast to the other. In this way, attention is focused on this, giving the environment and allowing you to play with different styles.
The kitchen in corten
For example, an Industrial Kitchen is perfect in combination with flooring, or just in the case of wall claddings with corten effect.
What colors do we match?
The whites, the browns and the gray are very good! A modern environment will be very good to accommodate this coating.
This refined and eye-catching “rusty” tint is also suitable for giving new light to a furnished outfit. Here the Corten effect will give light and dynamism.
Another particular idea is to alternate a wall painted or coated with Corten material, with floral wallpaper as well. Within the plot of the paper there should be nuances that approach the copper of the wall itself.
The Corten interior effect walls amaze and allow you to create cozy, eclectic, refined and highly scenic environments.
