A Guide To Indoor Outdoor Porcelain Flooring

Posted on 18th February 2022

When it comes to performance, porcelain flooring is an exceptionally high performer in almost any environment. Over the last few years, indoor outdoor tiles have become an increasingly popular trend among designers and homeowners and it’s easy to see why.

Styling a beautiful garden reflects the overall look of your home. Plus, a tiling scheme that is seamless and elegant is the perfect way to create a design that continues throughout.

Why should I be using porcelain flooring inside and out?

For starters, all of our porcelain paving tiles have an extremely low porosity level. This means that the slabs don’t absorb as much liquid which minimises the risk of staining and water damage.

Porcelain flooring is incredibly durable and high-quality, which makes them perfect for applications that are high traffic areas. The patio tiles are very resistant to scratches and abrasions so you don’t need to worry about the kids playing or your pet being destructive.

Even better, most of the time porcelain flooring doesn’t require harsh cleaning chemicals to keep the tiles looking brand new. A simple sweep and wipe with a cloth is enough to keep your patio beautifully clean.

Porcelain flooring also provides multiple safety features to prevent potential hazards in both indoor and outdoor spaces. The slip resistant texture the tiles are manufactured with make them ideal for areas that are prone to getting wet, such as bathrooms and swimming pools.

Porcelain is also non-flammable so is able to be used around fire pits, grills, and fireplaces.

What’s more, porcelain slabs are weather resistant too. The tiles can withstand potentially damaging effects of freezing temperatures, as well as moisture from rain, snow, and humidity. Plus, they won’t fade in direct sunlight either.

Which porcelain flooring tiles should I use?

A cohesive look extends your home from indoors to outdoors and as a result will help make it feel bigger and brighter.

There are two ways you can achieve a seamless porcelain flooring design. The main method is to use the same tiles both inside and outside and for this style we recommend our Rocca Kandla Grey porcelain flooring, which is perfect for achieving the look for less.

Alternatively, if you are on the hunt for the perfect neutral porcelain flooring that compliments all styles of decor, our Street Sand is an elegant choice.

The second method to achieve indoor outdoor porcelain design is to pair tiles of a similar style or colour. This trend has the ability to extend rooms beyond their walls and create uniform designs and transitional spaces.

We recommend pairing our light grey porcelain flooring Brava Cello and Brava Grigio. Part of the same collection, they are similar in their undertones and overall appearance and pair together beautifully.
