porcelain tiles

Porcelain paving offers a variety of benefits. Not only is it a stunning addition to any outdoor or indoor space, but it is also so incredibly versatile. There truly is a porcelain tile out there for everyone! 

If you're thinking about installing our tiles, there are many advantages of porcelain. In this blog, we'll go through 5 advantages of porcelain tiles so you can make an informed decision. 


1. They're similar to natural stone

There's no denying that natural stone paving is beautiful. It's traditional, authentic, and wonderfully unique. However, it comes with the drawbacks of maintenance upkeep. For instance, natural stone paving needs sealing, whereas porcelain paving doesn't as it has naturally low porosity.

One of the best porcelain tile advantages is that porcelain paving can look identical to stone with all of its advantages of colour variation, veining and fossilisation, without the extra hassle.

2. They're easy to clean

When we say porcelain tiles are easy to clean, we mean it. This is one of the most desirable advantages of porcelain tiles, as all you need is a bucket of warm, soapy water and a mop whenever cleaning is required. Oh, and maybe the occasional annual jet wash!

They're also moisture resistant due to their low porosity, so you won't have to worry about staining either. 


3. You can use them indoors and outdoors

Due to the versatility of porcelain tiles, you can use them for indoor spaces and outdoor spaces. The only difference is their thickness, with our outdoor porcelain tiles being 20mm and our indoor porcelain tiles being 10mm to suit the environment. 

This means you can create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor areas with the same designs and authentic appearance.

4. They're resistant to weather changes

Living in the UK, there's a lot of weather variation from day-to-day. Thankfully, porcelain advantages can help with this!

Porcelain paving is frost proof so it can tolerate sub-zero temperatures which is perfect for outdoor areas such as patios and swimming pool areas. Additionally, porcelain paving is also fade resistant due to its manufacturing process; they're UV resistant due to being cooked at 1,200°C to lock the pigmentation into each tile.


5. There are many options and varieties
