Dreaming of seamless indoor and outdoor flooring? We’ll show you how to achieve it with porcelain stoneware tiles

Whether a terrace, a patio, a veranda, or a garden, any outdoor space adds value to your home, especially if you can link your indoor and outdoor spaces. This way, you can improve their functionality and comfort all year round.

Up to a few years ago, the trend was to have different floor treatments to separate the rooms and, even more so, indoor and outdoor spaces. However, things have changed now, and it’s much more popular to have seamless flooring to create visual and spatial continuity.

Seamless indoor and outdoor flooring allows you to dissolve boundaries, create uninterrupted surfaces, and visually expand your spaces.

If you’re going for seamless tone-on-tone flooring, choose tiles with the same format and texture. Moreover, the tiles should be laid at the same distance, and the grout lines should be in the same colour, both indoors and outdoors.

Casalgrande Padana’s wide range of concrete, wood, metal, and stone-effect anti-slip outdoor tiles (20 mm thick) allows for endless combinations to suit any style from classic to contemporary, from minimalist to metropolitan, country, shabby chic, vintage, and Provençal.

How to lay outdoor tiles

Porcelain stoneware outdoor tiles can be laid on screed with adhesive, ensuring high load resistance. They can also be dry-laid on sand, gravel, or turf. In this case, they can be walked on immediately without needing screed, mortar, or adhesive.

Moreover, these tiles’ 20 mm thickness allows you to create raised floors using fixed and height-adjustable polypropylene pedestals. Outdoor raised floors are easy to remove and inspect. They also allow you to hide the electrical and plumbing systems. Fixed pedestals can be 14 mm, 25 mm, or 35 mm tall. They are ideal in all situations requiring removable and easily inspectable flooring. Conversely, adjustable pedestals come in various heights, ranging from 35 to 100 mm, and are perfect in the event of uneven substrates.

Finally, our exclusive Bios Antibacterial® technology (available upon request) helps eliminate the four main bacterial strains and combat the formation of yeasts and mould in any interior or exterior setting. This protective treatment is always active, day and night, even without UV radiation.

Casalgrande Padana’s many porcelain stoneware tile collections are versatile, modern, and functional. They fit into any style and meet any need. In addition, they withstand temperature fluctuations, weather agents, chemicals, and seawater. They also have extraordinary load and abrasion resistance and flexural strength, making them ideal for indoor and outdoor floors and walls. Finally, Casalgrande Padana porcelain stoneware tiles are made solely with natural raw materials, making them fully recyclable and environmentally sustainable. They are also fire-resistant, non-allergenic, antibacterial, and easy to lay and clean. Plus, they withstand the test of time.
