Blurring the line between interior and exterior spaces has been a popular home design trend for some time now. Creating a smooth transition from indoors to outdoors can be rewarding on both fronts, making your home feel less stuffy and contributing to a welcoming ‘living room’ feel in the garden.
One great way to achieve this is by using the same flooring material both inside and outside. Porcelain paving is perfect for this – PrimaPorcelain, a paving company with showrooms in Cardiff and St Albans, offers a wide range of low-maintenance porcelain tiles that are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use.
This means that you can match your indoor flooring to your garden paving. For example, PrimaPorcelain’s beautiful Quartz Twilight tiles are available in two different thicknesses: 10mm for indoor use, and 20mm for outside.
Using similar-looking tiles to segue from indoors to outdoors creates the illusion that it’s all one big space. Whether you’re outside or inside, you’re bound to appreciate the results!
If you’re serious about creating the smoothest possible transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces, a set of bifold doors may be a good way to complete the effect.
Bi-folding doors slide open and fold away, thus eliminating (or at least minimising) the barrier that separates your home from your back garden. Sliding glass doors can be used to similar effect.
On a hot summer day, you’ll be able to open your bifold doors, let the sunshine in, and really appreciate the seamless transition you’ve created!
Getting more from your garden
Thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we’re all spending a lot more time at home right now.
The current lockdown has pushed people to make the most of their own outdoor spaces – you may not be able to sunbathe in your favourite park or make use your local pub’s beer garden right now, but with care, your patio can be every bit as inviting as the other parts of your home!
If you’re thinking of revamping your external living space, PrimaPorcelain’s outdoor tiles are a superb choice. They require virtually no maintenance, they’re incredibly durable, and their superior thickness means they can be dry-installed with no cement or adhesive whatsoever.
And, as discussed above, they can be matched with PrimaPorcelain’s indoor porcelain tiles to achieve greater synchronicity between your home and your back garden!
