Natural paving

If you’re thinking of creating a natural-looking garden, natural stone paving is definitely the choice for you – the possibilities are literally endless! Natural stone paving has the ability to look right at home in a variety of garden designs, whether you’re looking to create something that’s more towards the traditional side of things or a garden that’s more upbeat and modern.

Concrete paving

The versatility of concrete paving can help to create a stripped-back, understated design or an eye-catching walkway. Traditional designs utilising concrete paving see them embedded in the grass or paving the way through the popping colours of your garden. A traditional material such as concrete paving can brilliantly enhance a contemporary space, so for those looking to bring their garden up-to-date, concrete pavers can be used above grass, sand or pebbles as part of a beautifully elevated walkway.

Curved paths

Often, the materials used for your garden path will determine how long it remains intact, however, the shape of it also has the ability to inject some much-needed character. If you find yourself edging more towards the creative side of things rather than straight, clean lines you can build a garden path that encompasses a more organic shape with a large, sweeping curve.

Not only will this make your garden look way more interesting, but it’ll also give a sense of a greater amount of space. Make the most out of this space by planting a variety of plants and flowers along the edges, it’ll entice your visitors to take a walk around and journey across your new outdoor space!

Straight lines and angles

For those of you who take kindlier to the simple things in life, a garden path idea based on straight lines and angles may seem more attractive than the previous one. With clever use of geometry, you are able to transform a lacklustre and uninspiring outdoor space into one full of wonder and beauty. A garden path idea based around straight lines can add more noise and elegance as well as functionality.

From basic, two-dimensional designs to complex symmetry, the use of linear designs can help to create interest and inclination. Contemporary, three-dimensional designs use raised beds, positioning of boulders and interchanging heights to create a clean, fuss-free appearance.

Straight garden path ideas

 

When it comes to choosing the right garden path idea for your outdoor area, there is a lot of things to consider. From the materials, the shape and style of path you’re looking to create. With the above garden path ideas, however, you should be well on your way to creating the garden of dreams with the right garden path installed.

For a garden path that is guaranteed to look good and perform for years to come be sure to choose porcelain pavers!

Flooring tiles make for a beautiful addition to any interior or exterior design, providing colour and character to wherever you decide to lay them.

However, a simple chip in a tile is a sure-fire way to ruin that impressive aesthetic, leaving an unsightly and noticeable blemish like a pimple on prom night.

Luckily, with porcelain tiles, such an occurrence needn’t be a worry – and here’s why…

 

do porcelain tiles chip easily

 

Chip Off the Old Block

When it comes to chipped tiles, the difference between ceramic and porcelain can be night and day.

Porcelain is essentially the Mike Tyson of the tiling world – tough and strong yet also visually impressive on the surface and capable of taking on all comers.

Meanwhile, ceramic is the tile equivalent of Sylvester Stallone – looks the part on the surface but probably won’t be able to last when put to the test against real competition.

While both will fill the role perfectly, when push comes to shove, you’re going to want to enlist the aid of the real deal and not a lookalike playing the part to get the full, all-round benefits.

 

Ceramic vs Porcelain

Ceramic tiles typically comprise of a plain tile composition that is coated with a coloured glaze which provides the aesthetic design.

While this can work out cheaper, the tiles suffer in terms of practicality. Any chips incurred will naturally expose the plain body underneath, making it very obvious and tarnishing the design.

Worse still, ceramic tiles can chip very easily, which can be problematic when an inevitable dropped mug occurs. Luckily, no such problems occur with porcelain tiles…

 

Porcelain Power

So, going back to the original question, do porcelain tiles chip easily? Thankfully, the answer is a resounding “no”.

All of the porcelain tiles available at PrimaPorcelain go through the vitrification process that crucially uses a dye mixed in with the clay before being placed in the kiln.

This not only provides the tile with a stronger resistance to a variety of demands, the inclusion of the dye also gives each tile a consistent colour throughout the body.

The result is a sturdier tile that is capable of withstanding a reasonable impact without showing any ill-effects.

Meanwhile, the through-body colouration means that, in the unlikely event that your tile was to incur a chip, the results would be far less noticeable.

With the new decade on the horizon, many homeowners can take the opportunity to give their home the redesign it’s been crying out for over the last 10 years! To give you the inspiration that you and your home needs, we take a look at the tile colour trends sure to be a hit throughout 2020.

Now, before we jump in, we need to take a quick look back at 2019 and some of the things that made the past 12 months such a good year for tiles, that may find themselves performing highly once again in 2020.

The main standout here is ‘extreme colours.’ In 2019, we saw lights get lighter and darks get darker. A trend that we can definitely see continuing going into the new year. However, as homeowners are increasingly using flooring to set the tone and feel of their homes, a wider range of colours will start to creep back into the limelight.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 2020 tile flooring colour trends!

Grey Tiles

Before you say it before you even think it. We know, grey again. A colour you’ve seen included in any tile trends blog for the last five years. But if we look at what the word trend actually means, you can see just why it’s been a mainstay when it comes to the hottest tile colours. Ultimately, the word ‘trend’ means popular and relevant. And with grey tiles still amongst the top choices for homeowners, its place within our list is justified.

Grey flooring has grown significantly popular over the last decade, with many homeowners opting for grey stone look tiles in their kitchen. But it’s not just floors which are getting the grey treatment, everything in the home is. Beds, sofas, walls and furniture are nowadays taking on the grey storm head-on, so what better way to complement the rest of your home than with a tiled floor to match? The ultimate choice for a cool, contemporary home.

White Tiles

Throughout 2020, we’re certain you’ll find more and more homeowners opting for a whitewashed look when it comes to their floor, offering a calm, relaxed vibe to a variety of living spaces. Whitewashed tile floors typically display the appearance of wear with darker colours creeping out from underneath. This style fits right in with the 2020 aged and worn trends found across all styles of flooring.

The benefits that a whitewashed floor brings is a brighter, bigger and more relaxed living space. It can really give your home that ‘beachy’ feel or an upscale, modern look with the right furniture to complement.

Another huge hit we expect to continue into next year is the addition of bright white tiles in the home, conforming to the popular contrast theme where homeowners utilise lights against darks. The marble-look tile is going to be a very popular look, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms.

Cream Tiles

For many years, lighter floors were deemed outdated or not premium enough, a view which is no longer the case. As more and more homeowners embrace the light, airy look in their home, you’re going to see a massive resurgence in cream-look floors. Especially for those homeowners looking to achieve a timeless-themed design. With cream-look tiles, your decoration options are endless. You can opt for a chic, modern feel or a rustic, homey vibe. All on the same floor! Homeowners are now moving away from sharper, contemporary, industrial looks and heading towards an updated farmhouse style – cream floors are perfect for this.

And there we have it! The three tile colours that we expect to be a huge hit throughout 2020.

The Christmas period is a magical time of year for many, as the summer warmth makes way for a wintry chill and festive spirit takes over the nation.

However, while there’s no doubt that Christmastime often lives up to its name as “the most wonderful time of the year”, the dip in temperature can bring with it some challenges of its own.

Luckily, with its robust composition and durable qualities, porcelain paving is more than up for the challenge, making for the perfect winterproof surface for your outside space.

 

winterproof paving

 

Slip-Hazards

While the crisp layer of frost that dusts the British landscape on winter mornings can be a beautiful sight to behold, it can also present a number of hazards that are far less appealing.

Natural stone is highly-susceptible to frost, posing a myriad of dangers as a result. This can be particularly problematic for families with elderly relatives or young children with potentially serious consequences.

 

Frost-Proof

Ideal for a variety of purpose-built surfaces – from patios and driveways to swimming pools and hard landscaping – porcelain paving tiles are highly resistant to sub-zero temperatures.

Outdoor paving tiles from PrimaPorcelain have been fundamentally designed to offer numerous frost-proof qualities to ensure your safety when using your outside space during the wintertime.

With a porosity of less than 0.05%, they retain very little moisture, reducing the risk of ice for a more reliable performance throughout the winter period.

What’s more, all our tiles are also pre-sealed, meaning there are no cracks for the water to settle in, eliminating the worry of water expansion and cracking as a result of freezing.

 

Grip Factor

Porcelain paving tiles from PrimaPorcelain have been deliberately textured for maximum grip. As a result, each porcelain paver retains its non-slip properties even in the face of harsh conditions.

All porcelain paving tiles from PrimaPorcelain come with a Grip Factor rating, illustrating their traction and overall firmness underfoot.

The scale is measuring from Grip Factor 1 to Grip Factor 5, with 1 being the lowest and 5 being the best. Most of our outdoor tiles offer a reassuring 4 or 5 on the scale, giving you peace of mind as well as solid footing.
