Italian style porcelain tiles on grass

Famed for their style and passion, Italians have long been regarded as the prima donnas of the fashion world. But if you thought that Italy's flair for beautiful creations was confined to the catwalk at Milan fashion week, think again - Italian design has also had a massive impact on the porcelain paving market, and their influence has brought the beauty of the bel paese to countless British gardens.

Here at PrimaPorcelain, we offer a number of high-quality porcelain products that are designed and manufactured in Italy. Here's why our Italian-style porcelain tiles are the best choice for your outdoor living space...

A taste of Italy

So, now we're all well acquainted with the power of porcelain paving, what of the Italian style that goes with it?

Here are some of our finest Italian tiles:

italian style porcelain tiles

Modena

Created with a distinctive silvery-grey hue that blends classic and contemporary design, these metallic shades provide a visual effect that's as pleasing to the eye as it is underfoot.

The subtle differences from tile to tile limit the design variation, heightening the effect of a uniform finish. Not only does this finish look seriously striking, it also enhances the contemporary colours of the tiles themselves.

Highly textured for both grip and slip-resistance, it also provides an attractive stone-like appearance that won't fail to impress.

Verona Sand paving

Verona

Available in two contrasting colours - Sand and Grey - our Verona porcelain paving has all the romance you'd expect from a product that's named after the home of Romeo and Juliet.

These gorgeous tiles have a distinctly Mediterranean personality, and they look fantastic in all sorts of outdoor spaces. Why not combine both colours to create a beautiful two-tone patio?

We love to brag about our exquisite Italian porcelain. We’re not sure why its country of origin should make such a difference – perhaps it just sounds more extravagant. ‘Italian porcelain tiles’ sound like they’re found exclusively in the gardens of sun-kissed Mediterranean villas, where orange trees line the horizon and the paving slabs warm the soles of your bare feet when you walk around without socks on.

The irony is that, actually, our Italian porcelain products are perfectly suited to the British climate. The UK is hardly know for its sun-kissed holiday homes and orange groves; perform a Google Image search for ‘british weather’ and the top three results will invariably be photographs of torrential rain and/or flooding. If you want good results from your outdoor living space, you’ll have to either move to a hotter country or put a bit of thought into the products you use. British weather won’t be kind to inferior outdoor goods!

It seems a little strange that Italians, with their climate, should be behind a paving product that’s so good in bad weather, but we’re not complaining! Here’s a quick look at why porcelain paving is such a shrewd choice of outdoor flooring:

It's not very absorbent. Natural stone has a very high porosity; this allows water to soak into the slabs, causing stains and moisture damage. Porcelain is far less porous, so there won’t be any stains – the slabs will stay fabulous for years!

It's slip-resistant. Whether by water or by ice, British weather can result in some seriously slippery surfaces. Anyone who claims to be selling a non-slip surface is fibbing, but porcelain paving is much more slip-resistant than stone, at the very least. That’s part of why it’s so great for swimming pool surrounds.

It's frostproof. Our Italian porcelain can cope with temperatures below zero degrees, so even the coldest environments won’t ruin your sumptuous slabs. Good news for Brits, and especially good news for Scots.

Autumn is just around the corner, and if you want a garden that can stand up to everything our weather will throw at it, porcelain paving is the perfect choice. Oh, and since we do occasionally get a bit of sunshine here in Blighty, it’s worth mentioning that our porcelain is also UV-resistant, so it won’t fade in the sunlight!
