Our gardens and outdoor living spaces have the potential to be so much more than a place for green-fingered gardeners. With the increasing trend for alfresco living, gardens are a place for enjoying family time, entertaining friends, having a spot of outdoor dining or simply relaxing with a book at the end of a long day.

So, with gardens essentially becoming an extension of our homes, how can we achieve a timeless, outdoor oasis that not only looks great but is easy to maintain? Outdoor porcelain tiles have the answer and can be a key feature in modern gardens. Ideal for patios, pathways and hot tub terraces they are a step up from your usual concrete paving or timber decking and come in a wide variety of designs and styles.

Why use Outdoor Tiles?

Measuring a thickness of 20mm, outdoor patio tiles are twice as thick as standard porcelain tiles and offer many features and benefits, including a durable, scratch-resistant surface requiring very little maintenance – simply sweep and wash down. 

Outdoor porcelain tiles are-non porous, so even in freezing conditions, water won’t enter the tile and cause it to crack. They are also UV resistant and won’t fade over time, giving you the ultimate peace of mind in all weather conditions.

Unlike natural stone, there is no need to seal, as the tiles are stain and mildew resistant and any spillages can be easily wiped away due to its resistance to staining and chemicals.

Safe even when wet thanks to anti-slip surface properties, you can rest assured that these tiles offer the ultimate performance and provide an ideal solution for any outdoor living space.

Bringing interior designs to the outdoors

In addition to the many benefits, using the 20mm outdoor tiles together with thinner, coordinating indoor options, enables a seamless transition from your indoor living space to your outdoor patio, which few other floor covering choices can provide. You can move freely from one space to the next without any interruption in design, enjoying a coordinated and harmonious indoor / outdoor living space perfect for busy modern living.
