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 or concrete, along with other available textures. Importantly they are durable and weather resistant, as well as slip resistant. They 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. Where as indoor tiles tend to be smoother and thinner, fitting in with the smooth lines of an interior. The Outdoor Look’s porcelain tiles provide that smooth look, capturing the mediterranean terrace appearance, without compromising on safety and durability.
