Glasgow Garden Steps

Do you have a set of steps in your garden? If so, we at Refin can help to make them beautiful! That’s exactly what we did for a customer in Glasgow, who ordered a set of Limestone Vanilla porcelain paving slabs for their own garden steps. Here’s a before/after photo:

Garden Steps - Before and After

As you can see, the steps are a lot more attractive now! Limestone Vanilla has a creamy texture that’s really worked wonders for this property, and as always, those slabs are almost entirely maintenance-free. The steps will stay beautiful with no work at all!

These photographs were sent to us by Botanical Landscapes, the Scottish landscaping firm that installed these stunning steps for the customer in question. Here’s what they had to say about our porcelain paving:

"Having completed the project, I can say that the 20mm porcelain paving is a very good product to work with. All passers-by asked about the materials, and most of them thought it was marble. I've recommended you to all for future projects."

Not only that - BL were so impressed by our service that they are now communicating with us regarding another project that will be carried out later this year!

That customer and installer alike are so happy with our product is a huge thrill for us, and we think those new garden steps look absolutely gorgeous.

Our thick Out 2.0 paving slabs in action

When it comes to outdoor paving products, the general rule of thumb is as follows:

The thicker, the better!

Some consumers are happy to purchase relatively thin paving slabs – after all, they’re cheaper, and they don’t look all that different once they’re laid. What’s the problem?

The problem lies beneath the surface. Thick paving slabs can bear heavy loads without showing the strain; they can stand up to reasonably high levels of foot traffic; they can stay strong in the face of wear and tear for years on end. Thin paving slabs...can’t.

Our 20mm porcelain paving is the thickest porcelain product available. It is sturdier, more robust, and longer-lasting than the competition, meaning that your outdoor space will stay beautiful for longer.

Oh, and one other thing: the superior thickness of Out 2.0 paving allows it to be installed without mortar, cement, or adhesives of any kind. We use a revolutionary pedestal support system that makes laying your paving slabs a quicker, easier task than ever before.

So, to sum up...

Thick paving slabs are better because:

  • They can handle heavier loads
  • They are less likely to be damaged by large of volumes of foot traffic
  • They will last longer in the average outdoor space
  • They can be dry-installed

Thin paving slabs simply can't compete! Order your Out 2.0 paving sample today.

Composite decking and porcelain paving, side by side

Decking and paving: two quality outdoor surfaces, two equally excellent options. Since we have experience of both, we are often asked which of the two materials is better for the garden.

As with most decisions like this, there isn't a single, objective answer that we can give. Both choices have their unique merits, and at the end of the day, it mostly comes down to preference.

With this in mind, one good approach to this decision is to think about what kind of effect you want from the finished project. Generally speaking, a paved area lends itself to a smooth, contemporary style, while the natural-looking wooden boards are better for the more traditional outdoor space.

Of course, there are exceptions; some deck products are designed to look rather modern, and certain paving slabs boast a timeless, classical air. The best thing to do is as follows: decide what you want from your outdoor space, consider how you would like it to look and feel, and proceed from there, investigating as many different colours and designs as possible to ensure that you get the right one.

Now, some people might tell you that there is a clear-cut winner in this battle. They might say that paving is better because timber boards need loads of maintenance; conversely, they might argue that paving should be avoided because it's difficult to install. But, in truth, very few of these factors present a problem nowadays.

Composite wood decking and porcelain paving are both very durable, very easy to manage, and most importantly, very low-maintenance. Furthermore, neither product is decisively dearer; you’ll find a mix of cheap, low-quality products and more expensive high-end items in both markets. Whether you’re shopping for paving slabs or deck boards, you’ll get what you pay for.

Garden decking, assorted colours

This is good news. With those mitigating factors all but eliminated, you are free to forget about the specifications and concentrate on the design you want for your dream outdoor space. With no maintenance to worry about and very little difference in price or performance, decking and paving are both brilliant choices for the garden, and it’s entirely up to you which is better for your project.

Of course, you could always just do what Lee from Cardiff did and use them both!

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.

While we mainly provide porcelain paving for residential use, our products are equally perfect for anyone who needs commercial paving! Porcelain can be used in all kinds of ways, and no matter what business you're in, we're fairly confident that we'll be able to offer you something.

If, for example, you own a restaurant, our durable outdoor paving will provide your patrons with an elegant exterior seating area. We also stock porcelain floor tiles for interior use, so you could give the restaurant itself a classy makeover too!

Or perhaps you're in the retail design business; perhaps you're designing the flagship store of a future high street giant, and you need a beautiful flooring product that will take the whole space to another level. Hard-wearing porcelain tiles are perfect for a shop environment!

No matter what your requirements are, commercial paving and tiles from PrimaPorcelain will work wonders for you. Call 02920 2037 1584 to talk about your project's specific needs.
