While making your home look absolutely stunning on the inside is important, the outside of your home needs some attention too. South Africans love spending time relaxing, drinking and grilling outside - a lot of outdoor activity calls for quality outdoor flooring!

Here are the top benefits of porcelain tiles for outdoors:

Various choices available

Porcelain tiles are becoming more and more popular in outdoor spaces. Just like indoor tiles, outdoor tiles are available in various colours, textures and styles, our favourites being the Barn Wood range, which has a beautiful wood-look finish, the Torre range, which has a cement-look finish, the Millenia range, which adds a rugged stone-look to your exterior, and modern and industrial screed-finished tiles.

Provides anti-slip safety

Many outdoor accidents happen as a result of slippery tiles. To prevent accidents from happening, you can install anti-slip porcelain tiles. These tiles are ideal for balconies, terraces, stairways, pathways, patios and around swimming pools.

Looks newer for longer

Porcelain tiles for outdoors are specially made to withstand a lot of foot traffic and other weight, such as furniture and other outdoor features. Compared to other types of flooring, outdoor porcelain tiles are more resistant to wear, scratches and stains, making them look newer for longer.

Ensures easier, neater installation

You can purchase modern calibrated and rectified tiles to ensure a smooth, neat application. The tiles, however, can also be cut to fit any outdoor space, including different shaped patios and steps. So, no matter what your outdoor space looks like, you can install modern and convenient porcelain tiles.
