Indoor, outdoor tile trends this Summer

With many of us valuing our gardens more than ever, the indoor, outdoor tile trend has seen a huge increase and is set to stay! The garden offers a place to enjoy and recharge, away from the distractions of everyday life.

Our growing range of stone effect porcelains offer a wide variety of shades, styles and sizing with something to suit every home and garden. This Summer we are sharing our favourite porcelain paving options and why they are an excellent choice for your exterior spaces.

Matching indoor, outdoor tiles

A seamless floor transition from interior to exterior is the perfect way to extend your living space and maximise your properties potential. Many of our customers choose a stone effect porcelain for a kitchen and then run this through to the garden. In combination with bi folds or crittall doors, this makes a beautiful open plan feel, bringing in plenty of natural light and a welcoming flow from the kitchen through to garden.

This renovated character property opted for our Provence Grigio stone effect porcelain, with a tumbled effect edge and lovely grey tonal variation. For an indoor, outdoor flow, one of the key things is creating an illusion of more space – the large bifold doors and matching tiles and pavers help to do just this, with our customers living space doubling in size and functionality.

Practical and hardwearing

One of the fantastic benefits of stone effect porcelain paving is its practicality! Porcelain is fired to an extremely high temperature making it hardwearing, scratch resistant and frost proof. Our porcelain pavers are also in a ‘grip’ finish, which provides extra grip underfoot – ideal for family spaces with pets and children or exterior pool areas.

The Bellemont Beige stone effect pavers offer a stunning soft beige tile in a popular 900 x 900 large format paver. Featured in this family pool and outdoor dining area, these porcelain pavers are perfect for creating a social space to entertain friends and family.

Variety in choice

The market for stone effect porcelain has grown massively in the past few years, with this in mind, state of the art machinery in Italy and Spain is constantly improving and opening up many opportunities for a variety of realistic prints and finishes. Our curated range of stone effect porcelain paving covers a variety of different shades and styles to suit contemporary, as well as country properties.

Our Tiverton White Pearl stone effect pavers offer the ultimate neutral porcelain that will work in a whole host of garden spaces. Seen in this remodelled terraced house, the clean straight edges of our White Pearl and its understated beauty complements the architecture and design of our customers wall cladding brilliantly.

Those wanting a more traditional option would love our Dijon porcelain – the porcelain replica of our bestselling Dijon limestone. This porcelain really does mimic the look of a natural stone with tumbled effect edging, soft beige to grey tones and realistic fossil detailing throughout
