60 ways to use porcelain tile for outdoor area in your project

60 ways to use porcelain tile for outdoor area in your project

Choosing the ideal porcelain tile for the outdoor area requires some basic care. This is because an area that is commonly exposed to the sun and rain needs to offer not only safety to residents, but also durability. And to provide accurate information on the subject, architect Marcela Zampere brings a list of accurate suggestions for ideal pieces for her work.

6 types of porcelain tiles for outdoor areas that are worth investing in

A very important factor that must be taken into account when choosing the texture of the porcelain tile is whether the external area is covered or not. If not, it is important to choose a high porosity model, for safety reasons. But when it comes to aesthetics, Marcela suggests the following models:

Burnt cement type

ANA TOSCANO ARCHITECTURE

Porcelain tile that imitates burnt cement combines with all styles of decoration and its versatility allows you to install it in any type of area. Marcela advises that, for uncovered areas, it is essential that they have a hard finish, such as Portinari’s Downtown GR. For covered areas, such as a gourmet area or hallway, satin porcelain tile is allowed.

with wood texture

FPR STUDIO

“The hard option of this coating gives a more rustic touch, ideal for outdoor areas, such as Portinari’s Giardino Be Hard 20×120 model. Wood porcelain tiles can be used instead of decks in the pool area, ensuring durability, in addition to facilitating maintenance compared to wooden decks. They are also interesting in the composition of external walls and facades”, suggests the architect.

Terrazo texture

GUILHERME TORRES

Terrazo porcelain tile is the option for those looking for a more resistant material, without losing elegance: “terrazo brings the beauty of stone and marble granules, combined with the durability and ease of maintenance of porcelain tile. This material has a higher value than the others, as it is considered a technical porcelain tile, with high performance in terms of durability and resistance. The internal mass is of the same color as the surface, making it possible to have a great finish in miter and stairs, for example”, explains Marcela.

Stone Type

For Zampere, porcelain tiles that refer to stone textures are right options for those who want to create a more natural atmosphere for the outdoor area: “to compose areas close to gardens and swimming pools, stone-type porcelain tiles create very welcoming environments”.

rustic texture

DANILO BARROS ARCHITECT

“Decortiles Eco Off White Ext is ideal for a rustic finish in the outdoor area, especially those with ample space, as they guarantee visual uniformity to the space and greater freedom of composition with other coatings. The beige, more natural tone is also super trendy”, says Marcela.

marble type

MAX MELLO ARCHITECTURE

For those who want a touch of elegance in the project, the porcelain tile with a look of Roman travertine marble is ideal. For the architect, natural marble, in addition to being more expensive, calls for more rigorous maintenance, and replacing it with porcelain tile guarantees a better cost-benefit ratio.

For the external area, polished porcelain tiles should be avoided, as in addition to being slippery, they stain more easily. The “hard” and “ext” nomenclatures are widely used by brands to signal the flooring as appropriate for these areas, but if you are in doubt when buying, consult a seller to assist you in the best way.
