Picture of Indoor Porcelain Tiles

Unlike several outdoor only garden supplies, with porcelain you can create continuity between the porch, kitchen, conservatory or garden room straight through to the exterior of a property. Add the wow-factor to a space; make the neighbours envious.

Outdoor applications from paths to patios, dining areas to barbeque spots, benefit from the installation of polished, wood effect or textured porcelain tiles. There is a pattern, colour, size and budget meeting porcelain tile for everyone at Rivar Sand and Gravel garden supplies outlets.

As the garden is the outdoor room, make it a space that you feel compelled to spend happy hours in, whatever the season.

Why is porcelain so popular?

Porcelain tiles are easy to install with no sealing and low or zero maintenance. They offer the perfect landscaping and flooring solution in traditional, modern and eclectic properties and demand little in return.

The versatility, durability and appeal of porcelain tiles means that you can install them indoors and outside with confidence. They are fade, stain, watermark, acid, frost and slip resistant. Most landscaping materials cannot claim these attributes and so designers, professional landscapers and homeowners are turning increasingly to porcelain tiles.

Won’t porcelain paving shatter?

Whilst an old teapot would be unable to bear the weight of people, pets and furniture, the porcelain tiles that leading manufacturers, including Rivar, produce have been fired at temperatures of up to 1400 degrees Celsius for incredible sustained performance levels and non-porosity.

Garden supplies specialists appreciate that the composition of quartz, clay, feldspar and other minerals means that porcelain tiles, indoors or outside, won’t let you down.

Wood effect porcelain tiles

The wood effect porcelain tiles boast a longevity that the timber alternatives cannot deliver and they’re lighter. Thanks to exceptional craftsmanship, they resemble the desired wood, from jasmine to sandal wood, cinnamon to maple.

A traditional softwood or hardwood deck demands regular pressure washing, staining or oiling but why don’t you take advantage of the progress made with porcelain landscaping materials? Sit back and relax; admire your installation rather than tend to it.

Two examples to whet your appetite:

  • The 20mm thickness 900mm x 600mm Nero porcelain tiles are dark grey- black with natural white and brown speckles. Nero paving has zero maintenance requirements; it doesn’t need sealing. Kerb appeal is guaranteed.
  • Cinnamon wood effect porcelain slabs have clean and crisp lines which enhance contemporary schemes. The 20mm thickness, 810mm x 405mm slabs require no maintenance.
