1. Wood-Look Outdoor Porcelain Pavers

Using outdoor porcelain tiles with a natural wood look is the perfect way to create a wooden look in your pathway, deck, or patio minus the upkeep and headache that comes with the traditional material. As long as you install and maintain your tiles properly, they will last for many years. Unlike real wood, you don’t have to refinish them on top of being more durable. 


Porcea Ash Timber and Porcea Birch Timber from our wood collection are designed to mimic the knots and patterns found in real wood. They are readily available in distinct plank sizes such as 16×48” to truly mimic the appearance of a wooden deck. And the best thing about these outdoor porcelain tiles is that you won’t need to re-stain and oil them from time to time. On top of that, a heavy snowfall or even the use of salt, will not degrade them over time

2. Warmer Tones

2020 has been a very stressful year for all of us. There is a need for us to bring a little tranquillity and comfort to our homes. Using a neutral, warmer palette can provide your space with balance and harmony. And you can easily achieve this with outdoor porcelain tiles that have subtle, warm, and calming tones.


Porcea Aura White is an excellent choice with its perfect balance of cream, beige and white tones. It’s often complimented for being the most white outdoor porcelain tile on the market. Plus, it works amazingly well with Indiana limestone masonry and light cream brick. On the other hand, if you want to create an earthy and welcoming ambiance, we highly recommend Porcea Ombra. This porcelain paver features a very warm and inviting dark brown tone, making it extremely versatile.

4. Natural Simplicity

Your home will never look outdated with outdoor porcelain that offers natural simplicity. With urban affluence, more and more homeowners want a more simple home. Using a material such as Porcea Nero with a classic white and gray concrete appearance allows for the balance of vision and the unity of space. The details of your home will come together in an elegant and simple style that has well-defined characteristics.


Natural simplicity also comes from providing the look of the most popular natural stone options in our market, without all the added maintenance costs, and challenges due to thickness inconsistencies or chipped edges. Another reason that sets Porcea Stone apart from other outdoor porcelain tiles is that our products are designed for North America. So colours such as Porcea Nero are the best replacement for Jet Black or Ebony Black granite. Meanwhile, Porcea Moongrey is the best alternative to Venetian Gray or Indus Gray natural stones.

5. Concrete-Like Porcelain Tiles For Modern Homes

Concrete flooring is no longer just for your garage or basement anymore. The material has made its way into just about every space in your home. People have fallen in love with the minimalist and industrial look with contemporary, clean lines. And the perfect backdrop for this is concrete. But this material comes with some drawbacks. 

Aside from being dusty, the process of laying and installing natural concrete is laborious and challenging. For best results, you have to wax or seal it every couple of years or so. Otherwise, the colour may start to green and not look very attractive after a few years. Thankfully, you do have a much better and far more premium aesthetic option. Porcea Stone outdoor porcelain tiles that replicate the look of concrete.

Opting for porcelain tiles with a concrete appearance is a great way to achieve a modern and clean look for your space without the inconveniences that come with concrete. They are also highly durable, water and stain-resistant, as well as inexpensive in comparison to other landscape materials on the market today. Furthermore, Porcea Stone’s concrete collection is available in a wide array of patterns and colors.


For instance, Porcea Moongrey is a lovely stone with a clean, light gray tone, making it very modern. On the other hand, Porcea Graphite has been designed with a clean dark gray concrete appearance. It also has little texture on the surface.
