Although the style and colour of a flooring product may be enough to sway you when shopping around, it's always good to know that you're getting true value for money from your investment. This goes beyond the simple factor of appearance, which, while important, is far from being the only concern of a customer on the hunt for the best-valued product. 

This is where our porcelain tiles really come into their own, as they have the benefit of coming in an array of eye-catching styles and colours, as well as meeting the expectations our customers have regarding safety, quality and durability. To illustrate our point, here are just some of their many benefits:

Versatile in Appearance and Function

Porcelain tiles come in an excellent variety of styles, and have the ability to emulate almost any other surface, from beautifully marbled stone to wood and beyond. Whether you're looking to decorate a bathroom, kitchen or living area, there is sure to be a tile in a finish or colour to suit your tastes.

 

Strength and Beauty

Our porcelain tiles are available in 10mm or 20mm thicknesses which allows them to be incredibly rugged and hardy. They will last longer than a normal ceramic tile because they've been baked at an incredibly high temperature. This vitrifying process makes them solid and extremely dense, and as such, far more hard-wearing and less likely to crack or chip.

Our tiles' solidity and resistance to abrasion have been tested to rigorous standards and they passed with flying colours. This means that when unavoidable marks or scuffs are made on the surface, which is inevitable with animals, children or even just the presence of furniture, they can be easily cleaned. A quick brush away and there will be no damage left on the surface of the tile at all. A great benefit of porcelain tiles in a busy household.

Weather Resistant

Sadly, as much as we would like a more Mediterranean climate, we suffer from time to time with slightly chillier weather. The frost on many winter mornings can look delightful but can play havoc with traditional outdoor tiles. The trouble occurs when absorbed moisture freezes as the temperature plummets. Water expands when it freezes and this can cause pressure inside the tile that causes cracks and frost damage. PrimaPorcelain tiles benefit from minimal porosity so they hardly absorb moisture at all.

Our porcelain tiles are, therefore, highly frost resistant and that means that even in the coldest of winters, our tiles will stay pristine. Another useful benefit of porcelain tiles is their ability to withstand stains. As the moisture is repelled by the tiles, the stain is unable to penetrate and can be easily wiped away.

Easy to Clean and Maintain 

No one wants the hassle of spending even more money once they've installed their flooring, which is why wood and stone, while attractive, can often be meddlesome. Porcelain tiles have the distinct advantage of being markedly easy to clean, only requiring a standard mop with warm water on a semi-regular basis. Further details of how to clean them can be found here.

With so many options on the market in terms of garden design and outdoor aesthetics, knowing which road is right for you can take time and consideration.

That being said, here at PrimaPorcelain, we’re unsurprisingly biased with a strong partisan slant in the direction of porcelain power – and with good reason.

Porcelain paving possesses a wide variety of benefits that puts it head and shoulders above the rest. For proof, look no further than this very blog!

Benefits of Porcelain Pavers

If you’re considering anything other porcelain for your exterior design, take a look at these top five reasons to choose porcelain pavers for your outdoor space.

 

Unrivalled Durability

The primary headline when it comes to porcelain paving selling points is and will likely always be its superior durability.

Porcelain is incredibly hard-wearing, specifically designed to withstand a myriad of elemental demands.

From sun and snow to wind and rain, porcelain pavers won’t falter under the demands of Mother Nature. They won’t fade nor will they bear the scars of wear and tear.

They are also extremely stain and scratch-resistant, making them the perfect surface for outdoor socialising and alfresco dining.

 

Low-Maintenance

A brilliant by-product of their innate durability is that our porcelain tiles are extremely low-maintenance, requiring very little upkeep to retain their looks – unlike natural stone.

Specifically engineered to quite literally weather the storm, porcelain paving is fundamentally designed to keep their aesthetic beauty year-round.

That being said, in the event that you did want to give them spruce, our tiles are inherently easy to clean.

To revive your pavers’ “just laid” shine, all you need to do is give them a quick once over with a mop and warm, soapy water.

 

Safety First

With an extremely low porosity of just 0.05%, porcelain paving tiles are virtually impermeable. Not only does this make them last aesthetically, it also makes them extremely slip-resistant.

This enhanced grip provides greater traction underfoot, while the minimal absorption also allows each paver to dry out very quickly, further reducing the risk of a fall.

Meanwhile, this slip-resistance also extends to ice and frost, with each tile extremely capable under sub-zero temperatures.

For unquestionable clarity, each tile is given a “Grip Factor” rating of 1-5 (1 being low/5 being high) with the majority of our outdoor tiles achieving a rating of 4 or above.

These capabilities in cold and wet conditions make porcelain paving a fantastic flooring solution around areas that are prone to splashes and spills, such as pools and hot tubs.

 

Design Freedom

When it comes to creative freedom, the sheer variety of designs available with porcelain paving blows any other option completely out of the water.

Whether you’re looking for an outdoor tile that mimics natural stone or a paver that plays the part of a wooden board, PrimaPorcelain can provide.

And the creativity doesn’t stop there.

How you arrange the pavers and their chosen layout can have a huge impact on the overall aesthetic, while adding a secondary tile to compliment it can also open up a whole new world of designs.

If you’re looking to create something unique to your property, porcelain paving can provide that in droves with a list of combinations that’s virtually endless.

 

Seamless Transition

Following on from the previous point, porcelain paving tiles also provide you with the power to seamlessly blend your outdoor space with your interior design.

By choosing a matching indoor tile, porcelain paving can be transitioned from the outdoors into the home.

In addition to achieving a smooth, uninterrupted transition, it also expands both the outside area and the interior living space.

This can be particularly notable when incorporated with a level patio and foldable patio doors, providing an expansive effect that opens up both indoors and outdoors considerably.

Get in Touch

Renovating your outdoor space can be an expensive endeavour, particularly if you run into unforeseen issues along the way.

If you’re looking to give your garden an underbudget overhaul, porcelain could be a surprisingly economical option that pays dividends for years to come.

Don’t believe us? Let’s take a break from laying tiles and lay down the facts with this handy blog on just why porcelain may be the cheapest patio flooring for you long-term.

Outdoor flooring options

Okay, before we get into the nitty-gritty of our porcelain patio products, let’s take a quick look at the outdoor alternatives.

 

Decking

One of the most popular external flooring options outside of porcelain pavers is the equally popular outdoor favourite – decking.

A fantastic flooring option in its own right, decking has been a national favourite for decades. However, if you’re looking to create something other than a wood-effect design for your outside space, decking is very much going to be left out in the cold.

What’s more, modern composite decking can be expensive and, while it does have the edge over traditional decking in terms of upkeep, it probably won’t tick the box when it comes to budget solutions.

Conversely, cheaper decking options will require exponentially more time and money in maintenance, which defeats the object in terms of saving money.

 

 

Natural stone

Meanwhile, another hugely popular patio preference is another outdoor classic – stone.

Transcending trends and eternally enduring, natural stone tiling – such as granite, concrete, limestone and sandstone – has long been a go-to for outdoor design. It’s tried, it’s tested, it’s universally accepted – who are we to argue with centuries of popularity?

Luckily, we don’t have to, because the facts speak for themselves! Stone-look porcelain is far superior when it comes to both durability and practicality in the home, while the perks of low-maintenance make it surprisingly economical for both time and cost.

What’s more, natural stone isn’t particularly cheap either – from a purchasing perspective or an upkeep point of view – once again leaving it trailing behind in terms of cost-effective flooring options for your patio.

 

 

Cheap outdoor flooring

So, with decking and natural stone both off the table as far as cheap solutions to your outdoor flooring woes, what other options are available as affordable alternatives?

When it comes to cheap outdoor flooring, there are a few common materials that typically make the list. These include:

  • Artificial grass
  • Outdoor carpet
  • Brick
  • Vinyl
  • Foam tiling

Sadly, cheap and cheerful isn’t always so cheery… or even that cheap when you take into account the need for maintenance and eventual replacement.

The above options, while initially economical, are highly unlikely to last any length of time without becoming worn, haggard or damaged. Worse still, these materials don’t actually fill the void of a genuine patio.

To truly be considered the real deal, a patio requires paving. When it comes to paving, there’s only one true king and it comes in the form of porcelain.

 

Save money with porcelain

If you’re looking to truly save money on your patio without economising on quality, investing in porcelain could pay off big time in the long run. Long-lasting with none of the upkeep you would get from an inferior product, porcelain is not only the most reliable option, but it may also be the most convenient.

The low-maintenance properties of our porcelain-powered pavers give them the edge over inferior materials. Built to last, you won’t have to replace them any time soon, nor will you have to spend time and money cleaning them during their stay. Once laid, your floor is there to stay and look great along the way.

In addition to the visual and practical benefits and of our beautifully crafted yet extremely durable pavers, all of our products come with a 10-year warranty, giving you peace of mind should the unlikely occur.
