We cannot think of many better ways to embellish your outdoor living area, than by having a beautiful porcelain patio laid. The smooth, silky, and shiny effect a porcelain patio can have on its surrounding area is something to behold! We’ve come up with 3 ways in which you can embellish your patio with our stunning porcelain floor tiles – we hope you share our vision come the end!

Cool Blue – Our Bluestone range of porcelain patio slabs embodies all things cool, and all things blue! One of the luxuries of porcelain being manmade is that you have some flexibility in the outcome of its colour and tone. This freedom allows unique and vibrant shades such as our Bluestone Design, and Bluestone Vintage to become a reality. As you can see by the example we used in the picture, cool blue porcelain gives an effect like no other! If you favour more contemporary styles, we cannot think of a better surface for your patio than our blue porcelain tiles – they ooze a crisp, clean modernity that is infectious!

Classic Limestone – We never like to pigeon-hole our products too much, as we think Bluestone could work in the right traditional property, and Limestone in a modern one; having said that, our classic Limestone range of porcelain tiles is a fantastic way to give your patio a warm, earthy rebirth! If our Bluestone range is an example of how we can create the new, our Limestone range is how we can better the existing! As you can see from our product range, these tiles create a warming porcelain patio like that of real limestone – but remember, as this is porcelain we are dealing with, your tiles won’t stain, scratch, or need to be sealed. If you want to give your patio a makeover, our Limestone tiles will bathe your space with a charming Mediterranean warmth.

Tile Transition – The last way in which you can truly adorn your patio with porcelain is all about creating a continuous transition. For this to make sense, it is worth telling you that for all of our outdoor porcelain tiles, we have a thinner indoor version in the same colour. This means you can have your patio and adjacent room tiled in exactly the same beautiful tiles! The effect this creates is sublime; as you can see from the image above, it does this by creating a uniform living space, and the results are truly breath-taking!

These simple tips can help you create a masterpiece of a porcelain patio! What we hope to have shown you is the versatility of our floor tiles; whether you’re creating an ultra-modern space, or a traditional retreat, our floor tiles complement your area beautifully. And, if you want to really create a synchronised-space, why not use our same alluring floor tiles inside your home as well?

Our elegant porcelain paving products are perfect for architectural projects, and if you don't want to take our word for it, perhaps a vote of confidence from one of the UK's leading architecture resources will convince you. For the last twenty years, the Architects Datafile magazine has provided Britain's architects with invaluable information and a variety of thought-provoking articles, and we're pleased to report that our beautiful porcelain tiles were recently featured on their website.

The piece is entitled Porcelain Tiles for Outside & In! and you can read it by clicking on that link. The article covers both Out 2.0 paving and our In.Out 1.0 porcelain tiles, giving architects an impression of the beauty and versatility our products can provide. Porcelain is a great choice for interiors and landscapes alike - offices, gardens, homes, parks, and public buildings could all benefit from the inimitable look of our porcelain tiles and paving.

Autumn is a busy time for the avid gardener. As the seasons change, so must the back garden, and if you’ve got a green thumb or two, we hardly need to tell you that you’ve got lots of pruning and tidying to do if you want your outdoor space to look its best this winter. Frankly, we’re amazed you’ve even found time to read this blog – you must have a lot on your to-do list right now!

Of course, that only applies to the green portion of your garden. Bloggers and columnists across the UK are currently telling their readers to prepare their garden for winter, but if your back garden is paved with our frost-resistant paving, you’ve very little preparation to do. No matter how cold it gets over the next few months, a porcelain-paved patio from PrimaPorcelain will barely even feel it. Unlike natural stone, which is highly susceptible to frost damage, our porcelain products are proven to cope with sub-zero temperatures.

Even if we don’t get a dusting of snow this year, it’s a fairly safe bet that things will get pretty cold here in the UK. We can’t help you with your plants, but if you want the rest of your garden to be maintenance-free this winter, we’d highly recommend our porcelain paving.

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!

Throughout your lifetime – however long or short that may be – you probably have a few stand-out purchases that you adore. We hope that porcelain flooring can be one of those purchases you are so glad you made, and that you cherish dearly. Porcelain flooring is certainly worthy of being one of your best investments, and with the quality of our floor tiles you’ll be able to enjoy that investment for an age!

The idea of having porcelain flooring may seem like a new concept to you but we are no amateurs to the field. Refin have almost 50 years of experience with porcelain - they have perfected their techniques to be able to make thicker paving slabs suitable for outdoor use. This means you can now enjoy all the benefits of porcelain flooring in your outdoor living space.

What exactly does this mean for the customer? Well it now means the most superior flooring material around is readily available for you to start enjoying. We are quite confident in stating that it is the best because the facts speak for themselves: it looks as striking and as beautiful as any material out there, but no other material has such a low absorption rate. This means that no water or stains can penetrate through the tiles and hinder the look of your flooring.

Porcelain flooring is also very strong, scratch-resistant, and even slip-resistant. In fact, with all its qualities combined with the aesthetics of these tiles, you will need a seriously good reason not to start adoring porcelain flooring.
