Hotel embraces Marmi Reali by Ceramiche Piemme

August 2020

The architects who renovated the 4-star Van der Valk Zaltbommel hotel next to Ammersoyen Castle in the Netherlands were in no doubt that Marmi Reali by Ceramiche Piemme combined all the transparency and light of marble with the practicality of Italian-made porcelain stoneware.

Now the Marmi Reali range enhances rooms with its glossy shine and helps to create colour effects that are skilfully used by the interior designers.  The entrance, lobby and bathrooms, spread over an area of 1,800 sq. metres, are covered with tiles featuring the polished Nero Reale and Carrara finishes.  The geometric alternation of whites and blacks animates the surfaces with very striking optical effects.

The use of porcelain stoneware tiles benefits the project in terms of practicality of installation and maintenance.  These ceramic tiles are not only eco-friendly, hard-wearing, and durable, but also easy to cut and install to professional standards. Stoneware is also ideal for radiant heating systems. It is non-toxic, hygienic and resistant to attacks by bacteria and mould thanks to its non-absorbency.
