Today we would like to talk about these exteriors
Over the last few months, the nation and the world has spent a huge amount of time at home, and thanks to the weather here in the UK, in their gardens. Everyone has become ever more familiar with the home in which they reside, spending not only leisure hours but working hours, alongside their loved ones in the family home. For good or bad, this has intensified many aspects of our individual home and garden spaces. Many have taken to home improvement, DIY, and enforced clear-outs. In a time of uncertainty, our homes became a solid form of reassurance, protection, and sanctuary.
Summer holidays have turned into staycations, house holidays
with summer BBQs in the garden, our homes have become the focus of our lives

Diverse selection of concrete, stone and wood look tiles
Minoli outdoor porcelain tile collections include an array
of effects from concrete, stone, wood and even marble look. The technical
advantages and practicalities of porcelain stoneware extends 10-fold to its
natural counterparts such as natural stone and wood. By offering an extensive
range of sizes, colours and finishes it presents a unique solution to any
exterior design project.
Anti-slip, durable and weatherproof
Minoli porcelain stoneware benefits from a near countless list of practical advantages. Porcelain stoneware is an exceptionally durable material and can resist both dynamic and concentrated weights and loads. Frost, scratch, and water resistant, as well as high slip resistance qualities** make porcelain stoneware suitable for outdoor areas that are exposed to various types of weather conditions the UK is known for.
Minimal maintenance and long-lasting nature
Maintaining porcelain requires minimal attention. Porcelain
is nonporous, does not require treating and continuous upkeep, and would not
deform or change the body colour over time. Resistant to mould, moss pesticide
and chemicals, Minoli porcelain can be used in various settings due to its
quality and reliability.
Transition between inside and out
Visual continuity can be achieved throughout a range of
porcelain collections, which can expand the sense of space, offer style
continuity, and create coordinating living areas that can almost seamlessly
join the outside to the in. Seamless indoor-outdoor transition can be achieved
with the 9mm indoor tile that is internally slip resistant and easy to clean
coordinated with external version that has higher slip rating surface, such as
R10 or R11.
Profile thickness and installation
Many of Minoli porcelain tile ranges are available in 9mm and then with a coordinating 20mm thickness. Anti-slip 9mm porcelain tile allows installation on well levelled concrete. External 20mm outdoor paving slabs can be laid directly on gravel or grass, this type of solution will fit a project where permanent floor fitting cannot be achieved. Traditional adhesive installation of the 20mm tile offers high resistance to loads, making it suitable for heavy foot-traffic areas, outdoor driveways, and car standing. Installation with an external pedestal systems allows ease of access to utilities by simply lifting the tile slabs.
Suitable for both private and public outdoor settings
Due to high durability, high resistance to wear, alongside
its low water absorption, frost, temperature, and chemical resistance, as well
as the addition of anti-slip qualities, porcelain stoneware is a practical
choice when choosing materials for many exterior design projects such as
patios, gardens, terraces, balconies, walkways, swimming pools and driveways
for both residential and commercial settings.
Trim tiles and special pieces
A complete range of special pieces such as steps, edges and
finishing trims designed to respond to most specific and advanced exterior
project needs. Minoli porcelain tile collections are complemented with an
extensive range of practical pieces for use alongside the large format
porcelain tile slabs. These specialised pieces come in a variety of styles and
shapes to meet all technical and safety standards and requirements. For around
the pool, porcelain pool side edging is available as well as more intricate
pieces such as swimming pool water grids, corners, and drainage channels. Steps
and stair special pieces with a choice of risers and skirting tiles for all
types of stairways, both simple and complex. All crafted in the same material,
