With summer well on its ways and the weather finally looking good, now is THE perfect time to start planning your garden renovations. And what better way to do so than to create a gorgeous looking patio that makes your outdoor space not only look incredible but extremely practical too.
A well-designed and well-installed patio can turn any garden into a space where you can spend countless hours with friends and family enjoying your surroundings as well as providing an opportunity to get your creative juices flowing.
In this blog, we take a closer look at outdoor patios and in particular, outdoor tiles for steps, allowing you to create a patio that allows your garden to become more accessible and practical in the process.
So, what are we waiting for? Let's get into it...
Why outdoor steps?
As we've mentioned above, installing steps onto your patio enables your garden to become much more practical. Whether it's steps leading up to your home or steps leading down to lower levels, they allow you and guests to easily navigate your outdoor space safely and easily.
Steps in your patio design can be created using the same tiles that you use for your patio, a great idea if you do have any remaining from your initial installation. For more eye-catching designs, you could use different coloured outdoor tiles for steps to create a variegated look that is sure to stand out!
Our outdoor tiles for steps
Here at PrimaPorcelain, we offer an amazing service specifically designed to enhance the aesthetics and practicality of your outdoor step even further. These are bullnosing and step treads!
The term ‘bullnose’ is used to describe a tile edge with a convex radius. This means its edge or surface is curved rather than straight, creating a softer look and feel to the edge of your steps that would normally have sharp corners or edges.
You can choose your outdoor step tiles to receive a full bullnose or half bullnose finish. A full bullnose will provide a completely rounded edge, whereas a half bullnose will provide a half-rounded top edge with a sharp bottom.
For additional grip or a visual marker for the edge of your outdoor steps, step treads are just the thing that you need! Here, score marks are added to your tiles before installation using a high-powered jet washer. The groove marked can then be filled between a choice of metallic strips, beading or a grip compound material, offering a variety of aesthetic and safety options.
For the complete package, why not combine both services to create outdoor steps that offer the maximum amount of practicality and beauty? You can do just that with PrimaPorcelain! Click below to learn more.
