Inspired by volcanic rock, the new Lavastone outdoor tile collection has a beautiful textural finish and intricate markings alluding to the natural surface of lava. As practical as it is stylish, the Lavastone tile is made from porcelain, a naturally durable and low maintenance material with the added benefit of slip and frost resistance. The collection comes in three colourways; Anthracite, Grey and Ivory which are beautifully versatile and suit a variety of schemes and palettes.

Dark Mode: Contemporary and Minimal Gardens

The Anthracite colourway is the darkest in the collection; an exquisite lead grey colour with high-contrast veining. The Anthracite looks fantastic offset with soft white garden furniture that draws on the white veining of the tile to create a grand and sophisticated look and feel. The Anthracite colourway is the best paving option for larger patios as darker tones need minimum maintenance and have a more dramatic appearance than lighter shades.

White Hot: The Best Tile for Modern Landscaping

The Ivory colourway is rich with creamy tones, and lends itself to warm colour palettes. This light-coloured outdoor tile will add textural interest to a pared-back scheme. For minimalist styling, simply decorate with furnishings in shades of nudes and white. To introduce individuality, finish the look with either rustic wood or cool contemporary accessories. The Ivory colourway is great for keeping your garden style light and airy, the lighter tone keeps the tile from getting overly hot in the summer and the qualities of the tile ensure the patio will remain in pristine condition all year round.

Benefits of Choosing Large Format Outdoor Tiles

Highly on trend, with dimensions of 800 x 600mm, the Lavastone tile is fabulously large scale. Large format tiles are becoming an increasingly popular choice, but why are large tiles so popular?


Large scale tiles require less grout lines, giving a sleeker finish.


Less grouting also means less maintenance which is something to consider when choosing the right tile for your garden.


Landscaping your garden with larger tiles also gives the illusion of more space, this makes them a popular choice for smaller yards and patio areas.

If you’ve decided to go for large scale tiles in your garden, the Lavastone tile collection offers a really sleek selection of colours with a rustic edge.
