Along with the planning, designing, and constructing of a building, architects are also very much interested in how it will look afterwards. Not just in terms of structural integrity, but in terms of a more artistic view of beauty. Patio slabs play an important role in the overall appearance of a building; not only can they be used as indoor flooring, but the role they play in the outside area is particularly crucial.
The reason we say this is because your slabs will take centre-stage outdoors, what with there being fewer décor-distractions in a garden than indoors. This definitely puts an added pressure on really nailing the outdoor flooring, and this is where Porcelain Paving comes in! Architects really want to make a statement every time they complete a property, and our patio slabs allow them to do this!
Our manufacturers have the technological ability to make beautiful patio slabs that retain all the benefits of porcelain. Using various techniques we can recreate the identical shades, tones, and finish you get with the most desirable of stone paving slabs. As they are man-made though you also get a precision, consistency, and engineered-feel that you won’t find with natural stones. This all makes our patio slabs a very tantalising offer for the style-savvy architect!
It is not just a ‘statement’ property that could benefit from using porcelain; they may sound like a specialised material to some, but as we explained earlier they are made to look like more recognisable forms of flooring. These patio slabs have a large scope for application in landscape architecture, whether it to be to grace the patio of a traditional property, or to adorn the balcony of a minimalist apartment. The range of colours we stock caters to all styles and tastes – meaning no slab has been left unturned.
It’s looking good for our architects: in porcelain they have a slightly more interesting proposition than bog-standard stone; these slabs have the aesthetic-merit to match the finest of stone, with a reassurance you only get from hi-tech manmade materials. And we haven’t even got to the best bit yet – these tiles are going to carry on looking their best!
It’s all very well having beautiful patio slabs laid, but if in a short time their finish becomes blotted by water damage and stains, your efforts have been wasted. Where we think architects will really take favour with our paving is with its strength and durability. Due to the high temperatures it’s baked at, along with it being impervious to water, and the increased thickness of an already strong material, our porcelain is strong enough to be used in commercial areas – even those subjected to heavily pedestrianized foot-traffic! In a residential property our slabs are going to keep looking pristine for an age – this means the architect’s vision can enjoy some serious longevity!
Architects will enjoy the alluring-aesthetics of our porcelain slabs, along with their versatile range. They’ll also be won over by the quality and durability, meaning you both can enjoy this beautiful flooring for years to come.
