The five golden rules for your first house

A new life and new projects. Bought a house and don’t know where to start with the interior?

No worries! We have a series of tips on how to furnish it. Whether you are a young couple or a single person struggling with a new house, today you are spoiled for choice with ways to characterize it.

1. Try once, try again and keep on trying

Your first house, at least at the start, won’t be perfect. Different chairs, a sofa that you’re unhappy with, walls with unconvincingly arranged paintings. Don’t panic! It’s totally normal. We have to focus on what we really like by experiencing it, rather than just because we saw it in a magazine. And this takes patience! It’s not something you learn overnight.

2. Come up with your style idea

Before any furniture choice, we must ask ourselves what habits we intend to indulge and what comforts we are looking for: an open, relaxed and convivial living room, intimate spaces in which to retreat to relax away from the bustle, large spaces, colourful rooms... it is important to understand the mood that you want to convey in your house and this is the starting point for everything else.

3. Balance solid and empty spaces

Alternate open and closed compartments to create a thoughtful composition. Things left visible should have an aesthetic that is as uniform as possible in order to avoid visual confusion.

4. Choose high-quality materials

Whether inspired by wood, concrete, marble or stone, materials chosen for floors and walls must guarantee the highest quality, both in terms of performance and aesthetics. Now you are spoiled for choice! Practical, imaginative, elegant and functional tiles are able to faithfully reproduce your favourite natural effects and to interpret more contemporary surfaces. Lending personality to a room with unique colour and material identities will be completely straightforward!

Moreover, with large, slim slabs you can not only cover old tiles, but also bathroom and kitchen tops, cabinets, tables, desks, doors and furnishings in general. Ceramic slabs are a new solution for surfaces and volumes that can multiply their intended use and applications, expanding the horizons of their use in the furniture sector. Made with advanced technologies, they combine the advantages of reduced thickness and large size with high resistance to mechanical stress, chemicals, wear, deep abrasion, bending, frost, fire and mould.

5. Don’t forget plants!

You only need a few, including cut flowers or a couple of succulent plants. There's no atmosphere without a touch of green!

Cover the kitchen with tiles from the Glance line for a striking urban look!
