There are many different materials which are excellent for landscaping projects, but one of the most popular for contemporary garden design is porcelain paving. With the growing trend of inside-outside spaces, this is an ideal option for creating a seamless, luxury finish in homes throughout Kirby Muxloe, Quorn, Rothley and the surrounding Leicestershire areas.
Offering a perfect middle-ground between natural stone and ceramic tiling, porcelain allows a consistent, seamless finish between interior and exterior spaces. This clean, harmonious look adds a fresh dimension to garden design, creating a luxurious and modern feel.
Similar in application to traditional paving products, porcelain is relatively simple to install. We use a slurry paste, or primer, before laying pavers to make sure they retain their bond with the concrete bed.
As porcelain paving experts, we can install the product on supporting pedestals, providing different garden levels. This method has previously been reserved for commercial uses, but with modern advances in landscaping, Platinum Garden Design Ltd delivers innovative solutions to domestic clients.
Porcelain paving is available in a variety of colours and styles, meaning there is an option to suit every taste. Pavers also come in a range of sizes, resulting in endless design possibilities. One benefit of this, is that by using larger paving, fewer joints give the illusion of a bigger space.
The smooth and clean appearance of porcelain slabs makes them an ideal option for contemporary gardens in Kirby Muxloe, Quorn, Rothley and Leicestershire. As specialists in garden design and installation, our team find the best solutions for every space. During on-site consultations, we advise on the most suitable products to make your vision a reality.
Porcelain paving offers a number of advantages which make it a highly popular choice among our clients. Apart from offering a variety of style options, porcelain slabs are also:
Easy to Maintain – One of the easiest types of paving to maintain, porcelain does not stain and is incredibly resistant to scratches, UV and frost. Simply hosing down with water is effective at keeping surfaces clean, while the only real maintenance necessary is the replacement of sealant every few years.
Because it maintains an attractive, neat appearance, porcelain is favourable for luxury garden design.
Moisture Resistant – Compared to other types of ceramic, porcelain paving is significantly less prone to absorbing moisture. This means it will not crack from absorbing water, making it an ideal solution for properties which experience frequent rainfall, such as the Kirby Muxloe, Quorn, Rothley and wider Leicestershire areas.
Durable – Because porcelain slabs have a high density, they are incredibly hard-wearing. Along with its scratch and weather-resistant properties, this makes it suitable for even high-footfall areas, such as frequently used garden paths and patios.
