What Are Porcelain Tiles?

In today’s world value for money is what many people are looking for when making purchases for their home. 

Porcelain tiles are used primarily to cover floors and other large spaces in the home. One thing that continuously draws people’s attention to this tile is their longevity. porcelain is made from clay, giving them more density and overall durability. 

This is why porcelain tiles are perfect for your outdoor space this summer. It gets better though…

Not only do they have features perfect for the outside, there are also plenty of patterns and colours available. But which design options should you consider for the upcoming months?

Top 3 Outdoor Porcelain Tile Designs

- Design your bare walls 

Designing and taking time with your outdoor walls can produce great results in your outdoor space. You are able to create themes and/or add to them if you have one already for your home. 

This is perfect for if you have a barbeque area or an outdoor dining area. Creating vibrant spaces for you and your guests can make the memories even more memorable. 

We recommend our Country Mist Green tile. The light colours are perfect for the summer months. The design also features a pattern of multiple colours creating even more vibrant shades.

- Wood effect tiles

Wood effect tiles do what they say on the tin. They look like a traditional wooden floorboard. Except they are in the form of a tile and other desirable qualities we have mentioned previously. 

Creating a ‘homey’ environment outside is another great way to create a theme in your outdoor space. If you have a wood burner, having the fire on with wood effect tiles creates a cottage-like setting. 

To achieve this style opt for our Hard Nut tile. This tile possesses a natural wooden look. Due to its dense qualities the elements will have no match with this tile. 

- Large Tiles 

This design is perfect for those who have already chosen their outdoor tile. Having large tiles implemented into your house design really creates a stylish feel that may not be achieved otherwise!

For the summer months opting for a lighter toned tile can create even more vibrancy. The larger surface area of the tile will reflect the light creating a nice, warm atmosphere for your space. 

The Trevistone Blanco tile found on our site would be a perfect choice to fit this arrangement. The light colouring is simple yet effective. Furthermore the natural patterns give this tile a lifelike stone finish. 

How To Maintain Your Porcelain Tiles

Choosing which tile and style to go for is definitely the hardest part of this process. The aftercare is always overlooked as people forget about this part of the tile’s lifespan. 

For a DIY approach to this task it is recommended to clean your tiles periodically. Doing so maintains the quality and overall look. To do this simply add a cleaning product to a mixture of water and white vinegar and then mix the solution together. 

Otherwise there are products on the market that can clean your porcelain tiles and give them some TLC they deserve! Find them here. 

We hope this guide has been beneficial for you. Porcelain tiles are a great option for the outdoors, with a wide array of tiles and designs available you really are spoilt for choice.

The tiles were a great price compared to other online retailers selling the same tiles. However, £30 for a DHL delivery seemed a bit expensive for a small order (approx 220 15x10cm tiles for a splashback).
