Turning a tired, neglected outdoor space into something truly astounding is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. Here are some 'Before' and 'After' photos to give you an idea of the magic that porcelain paving can work...
Before: This roof terrace in Barnet looked faded and ordinary, but we turned it into something far more eye-catching...
After: Ta-dah! Our porcelain paving has left the roof space looking refreshed, resplendent, and much more modern.
Before: Rain is always an issue in the garden, and wet weather had left this outdoor space looking somewhat the worse for wear.
After: The revamped garden is barely recognisable when compared to how it used to look! The porcelain paving looks great against the superbly stylish decking, and the low porosity of porcelain means that those paving slabs will stay beautiful whatever the weather.

Porcelain has many qualities to recommend it, but perhaps the most intriguing thing about our porcelain tiles and paving slabs is their versatility, the beauty they're capable of bringing to interiors and outdoor spaces alike. In Friday's blog post, we enthused about In.Out porcelain tiles and how they can be used both indoors and outdoors, but what we didn't really talk about was the astounding effect that the tiles can have on these spaces and why said effect is so appealing.
That's what we're going to do today: now that we've established that you can use our products in both the home and the garden, it's time to explain why you might want to!
Porcelain Tiles for Indoor Use
We're not going to tell you that solid wood flooring and luxurious carpeting aren't great choices for your living space, but we will say that porcelain tiles are just as good, if not better. The natural stone effect will bring a fresh, breezy atmosphere to your home that very few traditional flooring products can match; where old-fashioned wood flooring and soft carpets can contribute towards a slightly stuffy feeling, porcelain floor tiles come with a kind of outdoorsy look that will make your home (and you yourself) feel cool and refreshed at all times.
Porcelain Paving for the Garden
On the other side of the coin we have outdoor spaces, and that could mean anything from a back yard to a balcony to the beer garden at your local pub. If it's out in the open, porcelain is the perfect choice, and not just because it requires so little maintenance. Porcelain paving has a beauty that's mostly absent from other outdoor flooring products, and that's because it can afford to show off a little, embracing the kind of deep elegance that's usually only found indoors, where inclement weather isn't a factor. Out 2.0 paving is that rare product that's both beautiful and durable - why put practicality before style when you could have both in spades?
The beauty we offer with our porcelain products is open to both indoor and outdoor use, and as we hinted at above, the best part of that beauty is that it doesn't need much looking after. Porcelain can more or less look after itself, leaving you more time to sit back and enjoy it!
