Porcelain paving is the new, high quality flooring solution for properties up and down the UK. Suitable for indoor and outdoor use, porcelain slabs are extremely versatile and pair well with a variety of aesthetics and decor ideas.
When it comes to looking after your home, it can be difficult when foot traffic is high and the wear and tear of everyday living starts to take its toll. Children and pets can make maintaining flooring a difficult task but with porcelain paving it’s effortless.
Manufactured with robust capabilities, porcelain paving slabs are designed to stand the test of time with resistance to cracks, scratches, dents and chips. Therefore it can be used both inside and outside, with transitional indoor-outdoor designs possible too.
At Porcelain Paving Direct we have a wide range of neutral colours available to choose from, ranging from white and cream to dark grey and brown. Due to the neutral palette of colours, matching other colours of your home to the slabs is a simple task.
Let’s find out which colours best suit porcelain paving!
Grey porcelain paving
Using the colour grey inside or outside any home is a modern trend that’s here to stay for the foreseeable future. Luckily, grey pairs with almost any colour as long as you ensure the tone is right. For example, instead of a canary yellow a mustard yellow is less intense.
If you are installing grey porcelain paving outside, interspersing green plants and colourful flowers will complement the tiles beautifully and create a contrasting look. White, dark grey or black outdoor furniture is an effective pairing for this colour of paving stones.
Should you choose grey porcelain paving for an interior application, the design options are almost endless. We recommend pairing the paving with darker grey furniture and adding colour in small bursts with cushions, throws, curtains, and accessories.
Choose muted blues, pinks, yellows, greens or dark greys to complement the look of grey porcelain paving.
Beige porcelain paving
Beige porcelain paving is about as neutral as it gets, so choosing colours that pair well is a breeze. Installing beige porcelain tiles outside instantly adds a luxurious feel to any garden, so it really speaks for itself without needing to add many extras.
However, plenty of green plantage and potted flowers are a beautiful way to complement the paving and create a picture-perfect appearance. Choose rustic, light-wood outdoor furniture and interject small additions of black to give a contrasting look that is contemporary.
Installing beige porcelain paving indoors does a great job of adding instant warmth to your interior but you can make it feel even cosier if you feel the need. Use tan, burnt orange tones and browns to give extra warmth and help the paving stand out.
Cream porcelain paving
Another stunning neutral from our collection, cream porcelain paving wherever it is installed creates a classy look and feel.
Much like grey, cream works well with an abundance of colours. However, we recommend avoiding vibrant purples, blues, pinks, oranges, yellows and greens. Instead, dusty blues, pinks, and greys will work better and give a softer approach.
Wooden furniture over metal blends better with the warmth of the cream colour paving and looks less industrial and more homely. Therefore, when choosing outdoor furniture, a dining table or living room furniture choose something that is more traditional than modern.
