Using continuous materials inside and out will enhance the flow from inside your home to your patio or terrace.

Open plan living spaces, floor to ceiling glass and bi-fold doors are all extremely popular interior design trends that enhance indoor-outdoor flow and help to bring the outside in. To really connect these spaces, you can take this one step further by using co-ordinating flooring materials both inside and out - creating harmony and making both areas feel much larger.

Natural stone can be used internally and externally, but it is costly and requires regular maintenance. It is also at risk of staining or fading if not regularly sealed, unlike porcelain which is resistant to staining and totally fade proof. While porcelain is a relatively new material choice for outdoors, it possesses all of the properties that make it the perfect paving choice.

Valverdi Indoor-Out is a range of porcelain tiles that has been designed specifically for indoor-outdoor living spaces. Each standard 10mm tile has a co-ordinating 20mm outdoor tile that has the same look but with enhanced slip resistance. The outdoor tiles can be installed on patios, terraces, balconies and around swimming pools, while the indoor tiles look fantastic in kitchens, dining areas and extensions. The low threshold and wide frameless space of bi-fold doors combined with the matching tiles creates an almost seamless link between the outdoors and your home.

The tiles are made from extremely strong vitrified porcelain, which makes them ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. The outdoor tiles are double the thickness of a standard internal tile and completely frost proof, so they can withstand heavy garden furniture and all types of British weather. Resistant to moss & mould growth, they also have an R11 rated slip resistant surface so they are safe for use in wet areas.

As the tiles are man-made there is a high level of consistency throughout the batches, allowing you to create a modern look both internally and externally. The rectified and calibrated tiles can also be installed with narrow grout joints externally to further enhance the connection between the floors.

Whether you are looking for a traditional stone finish or a striking black patio, Valverdi has a range of colours and styles available to suit every taste. Their best-selling wood effect tiles look wonderfully natural, while new ranges like the large format Burnham have a contemporary cement finish.

Not sure if porcelain is right for your project? Get in touch with the Valverdi team for more information or to request a sample. Valverdi tiles are suitable for use with both Eterno Ivica pedestals on balconies and the PorcelQuick Adped systems for patios. Display centres are located throughout the South East for anyone wishing to take a closer look at their range of porcelain paving.
