Outdoor porcelain tiles no longer a garden secret

Home has certainly been where the heart is these past few months.
As home-schooling and home-working have become ingrained in the nation’s mind, home improvements have also become a pandemic priority.
Property buyers GoodMove found that 48% of Brits caught the DIY bug during the course of the last year as lockdown boredom kicked in.
And while a bit of painting and decorating was enough for some, plenty of homeowners’ eyes soon began wandering outside.

Complete outdoor redesigns continue to prove increasingly popular with garden buildings (or bars) and stunning new seating areas leading ambitious landscaping projects.
However, where wood decking or stone slabs were once the go-to material for these patio areas, porcelain tiles are quickly becoming a household favourite.

One of the main reasons people are choosing porcelain over other materials is its unrivalled combination of style and strength.
Porcelain adds a level of luxury and elegance to garden design never seen before.
With styles emulating marble and stone, wood and concrete, and a variety of colours to choose from, designers are gifted with invaluable versatility when drawing up how a garden might look.

Porcelain may be pretty, but it’s also incredibly tough. Due to its manufacturing process, these tiles absorb very little water making them weather and stain-resistant, and less likely to crack when temperatures inevitably drop.
A low maintenance outdoor solution, they also come in large format slabs as well as a variety of anti-slip finishes ensuring high levels of safety wherever they’re placed.
