YouTubers Chris & Eve recently revamped their lovely back garden using our 20mm Travertine Ivory paving slabs.
We have dozens of different paving colours on offer here at PrimaPorcelain, and we love it when our customers combine two of those colours to create a spectacular two-tone patio.
There are many different ways to utilise contrasting colours when designing your patio, and each method produces strikingly unique results. Read on for some eye-catching examples of this 'mix and match' approach to paving your garden!
1. Checkerboard Patio Paving
One of the most popular two-tone patio designs is the 'checkerboard' style, where dark and light tiles are alternated to imitate the appearance of a chess board. This customer achieved that very look using our Henley Black and Hampton Silver paving slabs.
Our 20mm PavingPlus Cotswold Ivory outdoor tiles have a variegated appearance that's perfect for gardens and patios. One customer who chose this product recently sent us a glowing review along with several photos of his new and improved outdoor living space - as you can see, he installed our Cotswold Ivory paving slabs in several different locations throughout the garden, and the results are truly lovely!
The price of porcelain tiles varies enormously depending on the seller and the quality of their products. At their very cheapest, porcelain tiles might cost £15 per m2; at their most expensive, porcelain tiles can cost as much as £100 per m2. Those are the minimum and maximum price points, but most purchases fall somewhere in the middle of these two extremes.
If you're looking for good quality at a reasonable price, you should expect to pay £25 to £50 per m2 for indoor porcelain tiles, and £35 to £60 per m2 for outdoor tiles.

Thickness is quite a good indicator of a tile's overall quality (although there are other factors to consider, such as grip and the number of different 'faces' a product has). The thicker the tiles, the more you should expect to pay for them; outdoor porcelain tiles generally need to be thicker and harder-wearing than those designed for indoor use, so building a patio is likely to cost more than tiling your kitchen floor.
