Outdoor Porcelain Tiles – Bringing The Indoors, Out
Patios are a key part of any home’s garden and outdoor space, and are the perfect way to add value to your home. Before adding any personal touches, fire pits, BBQ’s water features and furniture, the flooring needs to be fitted, and this is where you can really thrive in designing the perfect outdoor space for you and your home.
Deciding on the right flooring for your patio can be a daunting and stressful process, however, with The Outdoor Look’s porcelain tiles, we make it a simple and enjoyable process, as well as assisting in creating a beautiful outdoor space.
Is there a difference between indoor and outdoor porcelain tiles?
Design, thickness and durability are the two main differences when it comes to indoor and outdoor porcelain tiles.
Outdoor tiles generally tend to have the appearance and feel of stone, concrete, decking or other outdoor materials, and along with this, are durable and weather resistant, as well as slip resistant. They also tend to be far thicker than indoor tiles, by 20mm. This is a standard rule for outdoor tiles as it prevents cracking in both hot and cold weather. However, indoor tiles tend to be a lot smoother and sleek, fitting in with the smooth lines of an interior. The Outdoor Look’s porcelain tiles provide that smooth look, capturing the mediterranean terrace look without compromising on the safety and durability of your patio.
