Why choose a stoneware floor for outdoors?
With the arrival of the summer and in the wake of the enforced period at home, people have an increasing urge to design their home’s outdoor space.
And, perhaps more so than in other environments, flooring is fundamentally important. Outdoor coverings must have very precise characteristics in order to offer high performance.
Consequently, stoneware floor coverings for outdoors are the best choice. Firstly, porcelain stoneware tiles, thanks to the effects that they can accurately reproduce and to their various combination options, can often adapt to the context, enhancing it, whether it be a garden, veranda, balcony or terrace.
Additionally, they offer technical components that make them simple to lay and are easy to maintain and durable.
But why opt for stoneware?
Aesthetics are certainly a major factor: the latest-generation tiles have reached a very high level in terms of textures and finishes. Ongoing research makes it possible to constantly offer new collections in line with design trends.
Elegant stoneware increasingly frames outdoor areas: from verandas to terraces and pool edges.
Purely aesthetic factors are combined with the product’s functional characteristics, which play a fundamental role, especially outdoors. Thanks to its technical properties, stoneware guarantees durability, resistance to thermal shock and bad weather, and a higher friction coefficient to prevent unpleasant slips. Stoneware outdoor floor coverings are suitable for any type of space, whether public or private.
Another reason to choose stoneware? It is easy to apply on any type of pre-existing surface: on grass, gravel and sand. It can be glued on screed or raised on supports. 20 mm-thick porcelain outdoor stoneware is therefore extremely versatile and adapts to the technical needs of the surrounding environment.
Is outdoor stoneware durable?
20 mm-thick outdoor stoneware is highly resistant, both to weathering and to heavy loads and passing cars, motorcycles and bicycles. It is also waterproof and non-slip. Another aspect to keep in mind when choosing tiles for outdoor flooring is weather conditions: stoneware is ideal for areas with frequent rainfall because it is very resistant to corrosion and humidity. Last but not least, when it comes to durability another advantage of outdoor stoneware is its high resistance to abrasions and scratches.
