For centuries, natural materials have been used in interior and exterior designs to create a traditional, rustic feel. Incorporating nature into your living space undoubtedly creates a peaceful and relaxing atmosphere, but the problems start to arise when you learn how much maintenance natural materials require.

Whether it's, real wood flooring or natural stone paving, anything that you bring into your home from the outside world will need care and attention. We're sure, like most people, you live a very hectic, busy life where finding time to water the plants can sometimes be a struggle! So trying to avoid accidental spills and spending hours applying a sealant to your new floor probably doesn't sound very appealing. 

Luckily, there are alternative options that allow you to bring the natural charm of the outdoors into your home without demanding constant care and maintenance. Today we explore some of the ways you can use our natural-looking porcelain tiles to create a beautiful, natural, fuss-free space in your home!

All Natural

There's no denying that real wood makes a room look instantly warmer and cosier. Clean, all-white rooms can look really chic (but can also look a bit clinical). Thankfully, there are ways to achieve a real-wood appearance without worrying about potential drawbacks. In normal circumstances, it would be a terrible idea to use wood flooring for a bathroom. Just think about it, it would absorb water, warp out of shape and rot and eventually need completely replacing. 

Here you can see how this homeowner was able to create a cosy, wood-effect bathroom without the potential hazards of real-wood. To create this look, they used our Forest Grey Larch paving, some floating wooden cabinets and some soft grey furnishings to create a minimal, natural space that will last for years to come.

natural and modern

Combine Natural & Contemporary

Here you can see how our real-stone effect Quartz Twilight paving has been used to create an ultra-modern kitchen space. The homeowner has added lots of natural touches like the wooden worktops, the organic-shaped glass lampshades and (of course) the flooring. To contrast this, they've gone for bold black patio doors, floor level LED's and a cool grey feature wall. 

This looks like the perfect place to host parties and, luckily, with PrimaPorcelain paving this homeowner won't need to worry about red wine stains or muddy footprints. All that our Quartz Twilight paving needs is a quick wipe over with warm soapy water and any remnants of the night before will lift right off!

Add a Splash of Colour

Another way that you can use natural-looking materials in your home, is as a neutral base for brighter pops of colour and pattern. You can see how the homeowner above combined our effortlessly elegant Richmond Silver paving with a bold, low-level yellow sofa and an assortment of naturally patterned cushions. The finished outdoor space is lively, vibrant and appealing - the perfect place to entertain guests or enjoy a summers evening at home.

The soft natural grey tones and real-stone texture contrast with the soft, sunshine yellow sofa work together wonderfully, but we're sure you could add whatever splash of colour you prefer. The benefit of choosing our natural-looking Richmond range for this bright outdoor space is that, unlike natural stone, it has a very low and consistent porosity level. This helps prevent the paving from taking on water and becoming cracked & damaged over time.

With the new decade on the horizon, many homeowners can take the opportunity to give their home the redesign it’s been crying out for over the last 10 years! To give you the inspiration that you and your home needs, we take a look at the tile colour trends sure to be a hit throughout 2020.

Now, before we jump in, we need to take a quick look back at 2019 and some of the things that made the past 12 months such a good year for tiles, that may find themselves performing highly once again in 2020.

The main standout here is ‘extreme colours.’ In 2019, we saw lights get lighter and darks get darker. A trend that we can definitely see continuing going into the new year. However, as homeowners are increasingly using flooring to set the tone and feel of their homes, a wider range of colours will start to creep back into the limelight.

So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 2020 tile flooring colour trends!

Grey Tiles

Before you say it before you even think it. We know, grey again. A colour you’ve seen included in any tile trends blog for the last five years. But if we look at what the word trend actually means, you can see just why it’s been a mainstay when it comes to the hottest tile colours. Ultimately, the word ‘trend’ means popular and relevant. And with grey tiles still amongst the top choices for homeowners, its place within our list is justified.

Grey flooring has grown significantly popular over the last decade, with many homeowners opting for grey stone look tiles in their kitchen. But it’s not just floors which are getting the grey treatment, everything in the home is. Beds, sofas, walls and furniture are nowadays taking on the grey storm head-on, so what better way to complement the rest of your home than with a tiled floor to match? The ultimate choice for a cool, contemporary home.

White Tiles

Throughout 2020, we’re certain you’ll find more and more homeowners opting for a whitewashed look when it comes to their floor, offering a calm, relaxed vibe to a variety of living spaces. Whitewashed tile floors typically display the appearance of wear with darker colours creeping out from underneath. This style fits right in with the 2020 aged and worn trends found across all styles of flooring.

The benefits that a whitewashed floor brings is a brighter, bigger and more relaxed living space. It can really give your home that ‘beachy’ feel or an upscale, modern look with the right furniture to complement.

Another huge hit we expect to continue into next year is the addition of bright white tiles in the home, conforming to the popular contrast theme where homeowners utilise lights against darks. The marble-look tile is going to be a very popular look, particularly in kitchens and bathrooms.

Cream Tiles

For many years, lighter floors were deemed outdated or not premium enough, a view which is no longer the case. As more and more homeowners embrace the light, airy look in their home, you’re going to see a massive resurgence in cream-look floors. Especially for those homeowners looking to achieve a timeless-themed design. With cream-look tiles, your decoration options are endless. You can opt for a chic, modern feel or a rustic, homey vibe. All on the same floor! Homeowners are now moving away from sharper, contemporary, industrial looks and heading towards an updated farmhouse style – cream floors are perfect for this.

Concrete tiles have long been a staple of outdoor design. From garden paths to patios, few tiles can boast the enduring appeal of the classic concrete paver.

Rather than lose its appeal over time, this fixture of flooring fashion has somehow managed to maintain its cool in the face of resounding competition. In fact, recent years have actually seen concrete make a stony resurgence in the home, proving once more that the persistent popularity of concrete paving is truly set in stone.

However, this is the 21st century after all, and even a classic can reinvent itself and move with the times – which is exactly where our stone-look concrete pavers come in.

Concrete-look paving

Outdoor porcelain is the new breed of external paving tile. Blending the aesthetic style of a traditional concrete paver with the superior durability of modern materials, the modern incarnation of this enduring fixture brings porcelain powered practicality with all the visual effect of the original.

Concrete-look pavers offer a stylish, industrial look that has become increasingly popular in design circles as of late. Proving that cyclical fashion even extends to the world of exterior home design, what’s old is new again in the world of tiling and concrete-look pavers are once again a prominent fixture.

 

Benefits of porcelain pavers

Bringing the humble paving slab kicking and screaming into the modern day, porcelain pavers offer a myriad of benefits that not only match their original counterparts but supersede them in almost every way.

These benefits include:

  • Extremely low-maintenance
  • Stain, fade and scratch resistant
  • Sturdy and hard-wearing
  • Moisture and slip-resistant

 

Why choose porcelain?

If you think you have to sacrifice looks for low-maintenance upkeep, think again. Our porcelain tiles bring with them every bit of the visual allure of the real thing and our concrete-look range is no exception.

Forget the precast, mass-produced, stainable flooring of yesteryear; our faux-stone porcelain is the next evolution of the concrete paver and is not only visually more appealing and durable but also far easier to install.

Best of all, most of our outdoor tile designs can be coupled with our indoor tile ranges for a seamless transition from outdoor to indoor design.

Whether or not you choose to go complete concrete with your design, the fact remains: there truly is no substitute for porcelain if you want a flooring design that looks great year after year.
