The Growing Trend of Porcelain Paving

Porcelain Paving has grown hugely popular and with more homeowners requesting it from landscapers George Jones, Owner and Operator at Matipo Landscaping + Design has shared his thoughts with Blue Circle cement on the trend.

George Jones’ thoughts on Porcelain Paving

At Matipo we are noticing a growing trend of porcelain paving being utiliSed in outdoor living spaces. Porcelain has been on the market for quite a number of years, however the technology and installation methods have had huge improvements over the past two years.

Choosing the Correct Porcelain

When choosing the correct porcelain there are a few variables to look out for.. You want to make sure you have the correct thickness of porcelain for your installation method, whether that’s the full wet bed method preferred by landscapers or the pre-installed concrete pad and adhesive method preferred by tilers. Both methods are structurally sound as long as you understand the different properties of each method.

Indoor/ Outdoor Flow

A huge factor with porcelain is the ability to create the much sought after indoor/outdoor flow between a kitchen, conservatory or extension out to your outdoor living space. The beauty of porcelain is you could have the exact same style and colour of porcelain for both internally and externally. You would have R10 slip rated 10mm porcelain internally and then its matching R11 slip rated 20mm external porcelain to create a truly seamless indoor/outdoor flow.
