Porcelain tiles are already one the most popular choices for sprucing up kitchens and bathrooms. In 2019, you can’t get much trendier! Porcelain is even one of the latest trends for outdoor paving too so you can achieve the look both indoor & out!
Here at Paving Superstore, we tend to get more enthusiastic about paving slabs than most folk. But it doesn’t mean there aren’t objective reasons why porcelain tiles are going to be one of the biggest trends this 2019! If you’re wanting to upgrade or revamp your home, here are a few reasons why porcelain slabs live up to all the hype.
Low-maintenance but long-lasting...
You don’t have to know too much about decorating your home to know that easy-clean tiles can save you a lot of effort. In kitchens and bathrooms, porcelain tiles are nothing short of exceptional when it comes to stain and water-resistance. They have less porous properties than a lot of other materials so they don’t soak up liquids as readily, making them ideal for orange juice danger zones like the kitchen. If you’ve ever tried to get hot chocolate from a stone, you’ll see why porcelain is a much more practical option.
If you want our recommendation for something that can be used both indoors and outdoors, the Global Stone Paving-Porcelain Trento Silver slabs are also super-quick to clean with basic detergents. No need to drive to the DIY store and scratch your head in front of the cleaning agents for hours.
Flintana porcelain is a great example of how porcelain is a wear-resistant option. These are durable and will stand up to the pitter-patter (or trudging) of many feet. If you’ve already envisioned your guests flocking en masse to check out the results of your new revamp, you can relax knowing that you’ve chosen a dense, durable option.
As recently as a few decades ago, porcelain tiles were simply porcelain tiles—our choices were almost as simple as ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Now, we have a veritable plethora of options to choose from to suit every indoor or outdoor space. If you prefer a wood effect, the Brett Paving-Porcelain Timber Vintage Oak is a great option; it's very realistic without the hassle of using real oak. If porcelain’s not for you, because you prefer granite...Well there are options for a granite effect too, as well as marble. In short, even as one of the hottest trends of 2019, your home can look as unique as you wish. Our Inspiration Centre highlights more about this red-hot trend & how you can easily achieve it.
