Thinking of giving your garden a new lease of life this summer? If you have an existing patio area that you wish to refresh or are looking to create a brand-new patio, we have a beautiful range of porcelain paving to help you makeover your garden.
In case you don’t know much about porcelain paving, it’s the new revolutionary paving solution on the market today. Known for its incredible strength and durability, porcelain paving tiles are the best choice for gardens that experience high levels of foot traffic.
What makes porcelain tiles so durable and long-lasting is the manufacturing process. Clays, sands and various other minerals are pressed into a mould at high pressure and baked in a high-temperature kiln.
A vitrification process then follows to further increase the strength of the paving and reduce porosity and aid resistance to water and scratches.
Porcelain paving is known for being able to perfectly replicate a wide range of natural stone and wood effects for a fraction of the cost of genuine material. Inkjet printing technology is used to provide each tile with a like for like appearance to give a realistic effect.
Achieve the look of sandstone, limestone, marble, slate, concrete, or even wood effortlessly with porcelain. For an even more authentic look and feel, porcelain paving tiles are completed with a slightly riven surface to feel more like natural materials underfoot and prevent slipping.
Our Pebble Grey Porcelain Tiles in particular are a stunning choice for a wide range of outdoor spaces, no matter what size or shape. The hard wearing slabs are available in two sizes, 900x600mm and 600x600mm, and are a cream/light grey colour with a textured finish.
The light colour of these 16mm thick tiles is perfect if you have a small garden that doesn’t often see much natural daylight. The neutral shade can open up any space effortlessly.
Alternatively, consider applying the porcelain paving to a larger garden to create an even more open feel for guests.
What’s more, porcelain tiles require little to no maintenance in order to stay looking perfect. The vitrification process ensures that the tiles are durable enough to withstand water, frost, fire, stains, abrasions, and corrosion.
All you will need to do is occasionally sweep dust and debris away and apply a damp cloth to the tiles to eradicate marks that may appear a little more stubborn.
