Porcelain paving has become an increasingly popular option over the last couple of years and it's not hard to see why.
It has a huge range of unique benefits when compared to other paving options, making it the first choice for many when planning a garden redesign.
Here's ten of our favourite reasons for why porcelain paving should be an option if you're considering changing your outdoor space:
- It's easy to clean and maintain
- It's durable and long lasting
- It doesn't fade in sunlight
- It's slip-resistant
- It's less porous than other materials
- It's frost-proof
- It's colour-fast
- It's resistant to mould and grime
- It doesn't stain
- You don't need to use sealants during the installation process
So how would you use porcelain paving in your garden?
For High Traffic Areas
As porcelain paving is so durable and hardwearing, it's perfect for use in high traffic areas of your outdoor space. If you have small children or require paving to connect different areas of your garden, porcelain paving provides the perfect peace of mind that it won't get damaged or chipped easily.
It's great for using around pools or water features
Whereas decking can be notoriously slippery, uncomfortable underfoot and can be hard to maintain, porcelain paving is slip resistant - a big plus for areas that are often very wet! As porcelain paving is less porous than many other paving materials, it means that it's almost impossible for moisture to seep through and erode beneath the surface.
For Seating Areas
Similarly to high traffic areas, using porcelain paving for seating areas is a fantastic option. Due to it being particularly easy to clean and maintain, you don't have to worry about spillages staining your new paving! Plus, if you move your outdoor furniture around regularly, you can rest assured that it won't be scratched as other paving options might.
For BBQ or cooking areas
Although we don't have too many opportunities for alfresco dining here in the UK, porcelain paving is a great choice if you're hoping to bring the indoors, outdoors, with some dedicated cooking areas. External pizza ovens have become very popular recently and as porcelain paving is fireproof, you can be sure the area is as safe as possible, whether you're dishing up a BBQ or something a bit more exotic!
