Time to renew the garden and outdoor spaces of your home or an outside environment open to the public? If you are looking for ideas for new outdoor tiles, you will find in the Ceramiche Keope Catalogue all the proposals and collections in porcelain stoneware.
In exterior spaces it is essential to make aesthetic choices, but also to look at durability, resistance and safety: porcelain outdoor tiles are the right solution because they can withstand changes in temperature, rain, snow or direct sunlight. Whether it's the outdoor spaces of homes or commercial premises, the choice of flooring is an important technical step that should not downgrade style.
How to choose porcelain tiles for outdoors?
For non professionals, choosing outdoor tiles can be complex. The catalogue of Ceramiche Keope includes Sistema K2, a range of exterior floor tiles with a thickness of 20 mm. You can lay them directly on gravel, grass or sand.
We find 20-mm tiles in many collections: this possibility allows you to identify and purchase tiles with a standard thickness for indoors and the same tile with Sistema K2 20-mm for outdoors, creating continuity between environments. An example of a collection also available in K2 2-cm size and in large slabs is the concrete effect by Moov. Even the resin effect can be installed outside with large slabs or smaller sizes, the contemporary surfaces of Elements Design are inspired by the great metropolises.
What is more, many Ceramiche Keope collections, even those with the traditional 1-cm thickness, have a special R11 non-slip surface, ideal for garden tiles or patios. We can then widen our view and choose other effects, such as the stone effect of the Chorus collection, non-slip even in its 1-cm thick version, or the wood-effect Lineo collection.
What characteristics should outdoor tiles have?
They must be suitable for traffic, non-slip, resistant to abrasion and stress, frost and thermal shocks. The tile and its colour should not alter over time due to weathering and smog, it should resist external attacks such as acids, salt, mildew and cleaning should be very easy. Porcelain outdoor floors offer all these features.
When we talk about outdoor flooring, the importance of the features we've mentioned is worth noting for commercial spaces as well. Safety is a very important issue which becomes central in public places, where many people gather. The resistance of the tile, or the anti-slip feature, must be guaranteed in a hotel patio or restaurant garden. In the Ceramiche Keope catalogue we find suggestions and ideas for every kind of space.
Outdoor floors and walls: style and effects
After having discovered all these features, the time has come to choose the new outdoor tiles: if you love the cement effect for your outdoor spaces, look at the Noord collection. The Elements Design collection interprets the resin effect in a contemporary key, with references to natural elements, ideal in the transition from indoors to outdoors. The stone effect is a classic for outdoor spaces, renewed by collections such as Midlake or Limes, in stone-effect porcelain tiles for outdoor spaces. As mentioned above, now even the wood effect can be laid outdoors, thanks to the R11 non-slip surface: discover the Lineo collection, in five natural oak-effect colours.
