Porcelain Paving For Outdoor Pools

Posted on 28th August 2022

Aside from wood, natural stone, and concrete being suitable choices for creating a stylish outdoor pool deck area; porcelain paving slabs are also an excellent choice.

There are many reasons why porcelain is a popular choice for homeowners, landscape architects, and contractors alike for designing pool areas.

Most importantly, porcelain paving tiles are beautiful and create a uniform and contemporary finish. The slabs are also highly durable and virtually maintenance-free, which makes them a fuss-free choice for a range of interior and exterior applications.

Let’s take a further look into porcelain paving is the perfect material to use for your outdoor pool.


All porcelain paving at Porcelain Paving Direct is manufactured with a slightly riven surface to provide an R11 anti-slip finish. The riven surface of the porcelain paving slabs provides strong grip and traction to combat slips, trips, and falls. Again not Riven but Texture

Accidents do sometimes occur around swimming pools but with porcelain paving you can rest assured that accidents will be kept to a minimum.


Despite porcelain paving being an investment initially, it is extremely cost-effective in the long-run. Porcelain flooring is highly durable and hard wearing, which means that it will stay looking beautiful for years and years to come.

Unlike natural stone, which can fade and crack over time, or wood that can rot, porcelain paving is resistant to almost anything due to its vitrified manufacturing process. Therefore, we can guarantee that you will have a beautiful-looking home for many years ahead.

Low maintenance

That’s right, it gets better! Not only is porcelain paving durable and cost-effective; it is also very low maintenance.

Some occasional sweeping may be required for accumulated dust and debris. A couple of times a year we also advise wiping down your paving with a bucket of warm soapy water to get rid of any more stubborn marks that may occur.

Other than that, you won’t be required to jet wash or deep clean it at all.


With extremely low porosity levels, porcelain paving retains little to no moisture which reduces the risk of tiles cracking when frost and ice accumulate in the winter months.

Our porcelain tiles don’t require any sealing during installation either and are naturally resistant to cracking.
