Why have plain white porcelain tiles when you could have something a tad more interesting? Our delectable Driftwood Porcelain comes in a lovely light colour that will have all the same room-brightening effects as white tiles, but these pretty paving slabs have that little something extra that makes them all the more appealing.
So what is it that makes driftwood so delicious? If you ask us, it’s all down to the worn-looking surface. The distressed effect doesn’t sound especially attractive (after all, who wants tiles that look like they’ve been used before?) but take a glance at our Driftwood Gallery and then see how you feel about this design. Shabby chic design is very à la mode at the moment, and our wonderful wood-style white porcelain is the ultimate weathered flooring product.
Don’t worry, though; our Driftwood tiles may look a little worn, but looks everything. Beneath that shabby chic design is a robust paving slab that will stay beautiful for years, and it won’t require any near as much TLC as an actual driftwood floor would. If you think standard white porcelain tiles would look beautiful in your home or garden, you haven’t seen anything yet – our Driftwood tiles are sure to be lovelier still!
We're always saying that porcelain paving is perfect for prettifying your outdoor space, but as true as that statement is, it's worth pointing out that porcelain is a pretty good choice for your indoor space, too. Bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, hallways - all of these areas stand to benefit from a bit of porcelain. It's hard to imagine the room that wouldn't!
If you're not convinced that outdoor paving also works a treat when used indoors, a quick browse through our various paving galleries will soon have you convinced. For example, the image above is taken from our Bluestone Vintage gallery; we really love the spacious feel of this living room/dining room combo. The porcelain tiles have been used to create a sensationally chic atmosphere, at once pleasantly contemporary and appealingly vintage. And that's just one possible application of our porcelain tiles!
The superbly versatile In.Out Porcelain Tiles can be used - and the clue is in the name here - indoors or outdoors as you see fit. You can even install them in both home and garden; as we've discussed previously, this strategy has a wonderfully unifying effect, making your two separate living spaces feel like one glorious whole.
There are so many different ways to use porcelain tiles in your interior design. The images on our site will provide you with a wealth of inspiration, but don't feel that you have to do as we've done - the real joy of decorating lies in creating something that's entirely your own.
We could spend hours telling you how great our OUT 2.0 porcelain paving is, but why take it from us when you could hear what one of our customers has to say on the matter? Ian Harrison lives in Llangollen, a small town in North Wales, and he recently added some Limestone Champagne paving slabs to his home's balconies. We're pleased to say that he was thrilled with the results, but once again, you don't have to take our word for it. Here's what Mr. Harrison himself had to say:
What a glowing review - thanks Ian! OUT 2.0 paving slabs are perfect for outdoor areas like balconies and patios; if that review didn't convince you that porcelain paving is the right way to go, take a look at these photos that Mr. Harrison sent us once he'd finished laying his tiles:
A porcelain-tiled balcony is perfect for an outdoor seating area.
Cool and comfy-looking!
If you feel like bringing this magnificent porcelain style into your living space, the first step is to order our free sample pack. Limestone champagne, as seen in the photos, is a fine choice, but don't worry if it isn't quite to your tastes because we've got plenty of other great paving colours to choose from. With any luck, your outdoor area will soon look as lovely as Mr. Harrison's does!
We offer our customers a variety of paving styles, and we think they're all fabulous, albeit in slightly different ways. Each porcelain design has its own set of qualities, and each one is tailored to suit a particular environment. For example, our Limestone Vanilla porcelain tiles create a bright, brilliant look in the outdoor space, while the Driftwood porcelain looks better on the inside, particularly in kitchens.
But while we can't tell you which porcelain colour is best, we can point you towards our most popular product: Bluestone Design porcelain. It's difficult to put the appeal of Bluestone paving into words, but we're pretty sure that its popularity is mostly down to the fact that it looks good anywhere. Some designs work better indoors, and others look nicer when they're out in the open, but Bluestone paving is equally gorgeous in either setting, This allows you to use the porcelain tiles and pavers in both your home and garden, creating a lovely transition between the two.
Bluestone paving also has a claim to being our most natural-looking porcelain product; they all look authentic, of course, but Bluestone is the best option if you're really keen on that earthy, stone-style look for your living space. No matter what you're trying to achieve, our Bluestone paving is always a sound choice!
Italy has given the world a lot of good things, and curiously enough, rather a lot of them begin with the letter P. You've got pizza and pasta, obviously, but the Italians also came up with parachutes, pianos, petrol engines....and, of course, perfect porcelain paving products! All of the tiles and pavers we supply are sourced straight from Italy, so your newly-tiled outdoor space will have a Mediterranean magnificence that's absent from other porcelain tiles.
Italian porcelain production has a rich history, and the Italian for cool, classy style is evident in every porcelain tile we provide. Just look at the creamy complexion of our Limestone Champagne paving, or the classical design that makes the Bluestone Vintage tiles so appealing, and you'll see just how exquisite this Italian porcelain is.
Of course, appearances are only half the battle, and our Italian porcelain would be a lot less impressive if it weren't so robust. Fortunately, the Refin team have made their products as well-built as they are beautiful; once you've laid your porcelain tiles, they'll need very little in the way of care and maintenance to keep them looking good.
So push aside poor porcelain products and plump for some proper Italian porcelain, pronto!
