A Guide To Buying Porcelain Paving

Posted on 30th July 2022

Porcelain paving tiles can be one of the most beautiful additions to any home. At Porcelain Paving Direct, we have durable tiles to complement any home and suit every theme. But with so much choice available, where do you start with buying porcelain paving?

Choosing the right kind of porcelain patio slabs can be a tricky task, especially when there are so many styles, colours and effects to choose from that can all offer something different for your home or garden.

Here is our Porcelain Paving Direct guide to buying porcelain paving slabs.

Decide on the application

The first thing to do is make a decision on where you wish to apply porcelain paving, whether that be inside or outside the home, and in which area. Deciding this will help you narrow down the effect and colour of patio tiles you desire for the application.

All of our porcelain paving tiles are manufactured with an R11 anti-slip finish, so you needn’t worry about having to choose specific patio slabs for slippery surface areas, including swimming pool surrounds, bathrooms, wet rooms and kitchens.

It is important to consider that some types of porcelain paving are more well-matched to certain indoor and outdoor spaces. For example white, beige and cream porcelain paving effortlessly opens up small spaces to help make them feel bigger and brighter.

Set a budget

It goes without saying that porcelain paving is an investment for your home, however it is one that will leave impressive results and last for years to come.

At Porcelain Paving Direct, we offer paving options ranging from £32.73 per m2 to £60.25 per m2 depending on how much you want to spend.

Consider the maintenance

When we say maintenance, we mean the incredibly low maintenance that porcelain paving comes with. Unlike natural stone, porcelain doesn’t require sealing and still looks good all year round with little to no upkeep.

For this reason, porcelain paving is a first choice for patio slabs. They can easily be cleaned with water and a mild detergent using a damp cloth. For deeper cleaning, use a detergent mixture and water with a soft-bristle brush.

Choose the colour & style

Flooring serves as a backdrop for any room or area of the home. Therefore it is important to choose the perfect colour and style of porcelain paving slabs to truly complement it.

Porcelain paving tiles with hues of white, cream and light grey give a striking look to any space. Multicolour slabs are a good option for the hallway and darker shades, such as dark grey, create a moody and atmospheric look for outdoors.
