How to create an elegant look in your garden


No matter what size your outdoor space is, you can turn it into a little paradise if you know how to remodel it. You can transform your garden with the addition of some carefully positioned decking and tiles/paving slabs.

Two great products that combine wonderfully well to create a stunning garden


To achieve a light, chic garden design, it is a good idea to use natural, clean and gentle looking colours and all natural materials. Two products that are fantastic in this regard are TimberTech Silver Maple decking and our PrimaPorcelain Tirolo White tiles. The two-tone effect of the Silver Maple is undeniably chic and it will create the perfect space for entertaining outside. This two tone effect is achieved by putting each individual piece of wood through the manufacturing process not once but twice. PrimaPorcelain's Tirolo White tiles are ideal for creating a gleaming garden path or perhaps a small patio area for displaying potted plants, aromatic herbs and shrubs.

Durability and reliability


The two products mentioned above do not sacrifice robustness for aesthetic appeal. Both are weatherproof, and are easy to wipe clean. The TimberTech decking is coated in individual thin plastic sleeves which does not diminish the effect of the two-tone grain of the wood but which does mean that if food or drink is spilled on the decking it can be wiped up easily without leaving any stains. PrimaPorcelain's tiles/paving slabs are also very easy to install in your garden, as no additional sealants are needed to make them weatherproof.

Get creative and discover new combinations


These two garden products really are the perfect match for each other. The ideas above were just designed to get you started off with your new garden design. Now it's time for you to take over. Let your imagination flow as you plan how to integrate TimberTech's Silver Maple decking and PrimaPorcelain's Tirolo White slabs into your outdoor living space.

 A Porcelain Paver System Designed for Life.

If you’re looking to transform an outdoor living space into a high-class hideaway, then a Porcelain Paver System could be just for you. Consisting of top quality porcelain tiles, it couldn't be easier to install, and can be used indoors or out. With no need for sealing, the tiles are water and frost resistant, meaning once they’ve been put in place they won’t stain or fade, creating a sleek, stylish look guaranteed to impress.


We offer a wide variety of colours and textures that’ll allow you to create a custom-made effect entirely suited to you. Perhaps you favour a natural stone appearance, all without the kind of upkeep ordinarily associated with stone products? Because although the tiles are made of easy to manage porcelain, we think end result is one that’ll easily compete with any of the other, more costly products currently on the market. The safe Porcelain tiles and paving are environmentally friendly. Made from natural raw materials with minimal waste, which is recycled back into the manufacturing process, our porcelain contains no chemicals such as waterproofing agents, varnishes or resins. Unlike natural stone, they are not polished using lead and do not give off any gasses when exposed to flame.

It’s now easier than ever to have a Porcelain Paver System installed, particularly as you won’t need either cement or mortar. In fact, the system means being able to dry-install the tiles, something anyone with even a cursory knowledge of DIY can achieve. If, however, you find you need a little encouragement or advice, our team of professional installers are always ready to lend a helping hand. We also offer free samples of all our products, plus a cutting-edge 3D design service, meaning you’ll be able to plan your look to perfection right from the very start.

It's a combination we're very proud of and, we feel, can’t be beaten anywhere else.

Porcelain tiles offer a resilient, hard-wearing finish for your floors. They are made with different materials to standard ceramic tiles. Sand and feldspar are added to create a denser tile, which is stronger and absorbs less moisture. This makes the tile more stain resistant and easier to maintain.

When it comes to flooring materials, porcelain tiles are one of the easiest to maintain. Vitrified porcelain tiles and smooth glazed-surface tiles are the easiest to clean, but with proper care, unglazed and textured porcelain tiles can be maintained without any difficulty.

Here are 5 things you should know about cleaning porcelain tiles:

1 - Sweep or vacuum dust and dirt away

Your first cleaning action should be to get rid of any dust and dirt that has gathered. This can be done daily by using a vacuum cleaner, or it can be swept away. A dry mop is recommended for sweeping, rather than a broom, as this will give better day-to-day protection for the tile surface.

2 - Avoid chemical cleaners containing ammonia, bleach or acids for regular cleaning

Porcelain tiles are heated to fuse the mixture together, giving it similar water-resistant qualities to glass. Regular use of corrosive chemicals can erode the surface of the tile, and increase its water absorption rate. Corrosive chemicals will also erode the grout, which will loosen the tiles and allow water to get beneath the tiles creating dampness. For everyday cleaning of porcelain tiles, just use warm water and a mop. Every couple of weeks clean with a mild detergent mixed in warm water. Only consider chemicals to remove any stubborn stains.

3 - Completely wash away detergents

When using a detergent, ensure it is of a low concentration. Textured tiles may need a slightly higher concentration than other tiles. Cover an area of the floor with the cleaning solution and let it stand for about 5 minutes. Then use a mop to clean the area. Do not let the cleaning solution dry. Next, mop the area again with clean, warm water. This will get rid of any detergent residue and prevent water spots or powdery marks.

4 - Stain removal 

Not all stains are created equal. We tend to utilise the same cleaning method for all stains, but this is not the correct way to go about things. Stains should be treated in the most effective way to reduce any long-term damage to the tiles or grout. When dealing with stains only clean the affected area; do not use on the whole floor.

 

5 - Get rid of stubborn stains with gentle chemical use

Following the above guidelines will give your porcelain tiled floor the best protection it can get, and keep it looking its best. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, and major stains to tiles may need to be treated with a more aggressive approach requiring chemicals. Be aware that these chemicals can lead to a change in colour of the grout. First of all, follow the instructions above and find the best method to clean the particular stain. Make sure you are wearing suitable gloves, a mask, and eye protection, and ventilate the area by opening windows and doors that lead outside. Only clean the affected area.

By following these tips you will keep your porcelain floor in tip-top condition, and increase its longevity.

Bonus Tip: Place a door mat near the entrance to the room to catch most of the dirt being carried in, and reduce the amount of cleaning needed and prevent damage to tiles.
