Porcelain: bringing the outside in

Innovations in porcelain paving and flooring have meant that there is now a vast choice of products that mimic natural stone and wood, but are lightweight, durable and frost-resistant. Stoneworld stock a large range of porcelain paving and flooring for you to choose from, varying in colour, texture and finish.

There is a current trend to create a seamless transition between interior and exterior spaces, indoor and outdoor living combined. This can be achieved to a very high standard, using porcelain flooring and paving.

This particular client chose Stoneworld’s Story porcelain range, in the shade Desert. This product is available in both exterior and interior formats, making it a perfect choice for the seamless transition between two spaces.

The interior flooring tiles created a light, bright and contemporary finish to the kitchen, and the client chose a natural finish for their interior flooring (you can also choose a rough/worn finish as well).

The exterior porcelain paving achieved the same, beautifully contemporary feel, but this time with a rough/worn finish, to create a more slip-resistant effect, as the client also had a swimming pool installed, so this meant that the area was safer, if it were to get wet.

The connection of the two spaces was completed across Bi-fold doors, achieving a completely seamless transition from the interior tiles, to the exterior paving. This gives a smooth, streamlines effect, and really brings the outside, in.

Stoneworld’s Story range is incredibly versatile, with large format porcelain sheets also available for interior design projects. These jumbo sheets of laminated porcelain open up many creative possibilities in the home. You can use them for shower enclosures or wall cladding projects for example – the choice is yours!
