How to Create an Outdoor Oasis with Porcelain

24 Jul, 2019 | FORTE Porcelain |

When it comes to the outdoors of your home, porcelain might not be the first material that you think of, but it’s fast-growing in popularity. As an alternative to marble that offers great diversity, style, and utility, it could be just what you need to create an outdoor oasis for the home.

Why FORTE Porcelain?

Combining strength and beauty, porcelain has a lot more to offer. It’s extremely customizable, can easily be fitted to any size or shape, and is highly versatile. It works extremely well as an outdoor material as well. For one, it’s nonporous, meaning that it’s waterproof and easy to clean using a sponge or soft-bristled broom and much less prone to stain absorption. It can also tolerate the harder foot traffic that garden areas see, thanks to extreme durability.

Fine Dining in the Outdoors

You can bring all the care and aesthetic quality on an interior kitchen to your outdoor eating area by creating a beautiful BBQ countertop that has all the appearance of real marble. As mentioned, porcelain can easily be cut to any size or shape that you might desire, so your BBQ and dining area are already suitable for adding a new countertop. The nonporous material makes it perfect for cooking and eating around, since it's much less prone to stain absorption, as well. It’s fireproof, so you don’t need to worry about it cracking or warping under the heat.

Create the Perfect Patio with FORTE Porcelain

That same durability makes FORTE porcelain a perfect choice for beautiful patio pavers. Using the matte finish for flooring allows for a great non-slip surface and pleasing tactile quality to go with their marble aesthetic. Scratchproof, waterproof, and easily cleaned, they’re a low maintenance product that works excellently for a patio, and they’re much lighter than other stones, meaning you can transport them in enough bulk to pave your outdoor leisure areas without adding too much to your budget.

Create Your Look with FORTE Porcelain

FORTE porcelain produces a wide range of different porcelain stone colors that can emulate the look of natural marble but in a nonporous, lighter product. You can choose the deepest blacks, the brightest whites, or choose a porcelain that looks closer to stone if that’s your preference. As such, no matter the style of your home’s exterior, you’re very likely to find a porcelain that fits. To ensure the best choice, we recommend bringing samples of the different designs and materials used in your garden, or photos of the area, so we can help you pick a porcelain that compliments it perfectly.
