There are numerous types of porcelain floor tile that can be used in your home's interior design, but what about when looking for outdoor decorations? Porcelain floor tiles can be used to provide style and function for decks, poolsides, walkways, and other outdoor elements that can greatly improve the appeal of any commercial or residential property. When used outdoors, there are several new considerations that need to be made when choosing tiles in Toronto, including how well it can be installed on different surfaces and environmental concerns. Recently, a new generation of landscape porcelain has become available in the Canadian market, manufactured with the Canadian climate in mind. Centura Tile would like to introduce this revolutionary new product, the EVO line offered by Mirage, which is already making waves. Here are just a few reasons why.
Benefits and Uses of EVO Porcelain Tiles for Outdoor Decoration
Solid and Durable
EVO tiles are exceptionally hard and solid, with a 20mm or 30mm thickness, rendering them virtually impervious to moisture. This is a handy feature to have if you are laying tiles near pools or in climates that are prone to rain and it also helps to minimize concerns about melting snow. The porcelain tile is also highly heat and stain resistant and can withstand heavy weights or blows without breaking, so it's ideal if you expect to be moving around heavier outdoor items like barbecues, benches, or tables.
Easy to Install
EVO floor tiles are designed to be easy to install on a wide variety of different surfaces to account for differences between properties. You can install EVO tiles on grass, gravel, asphalt, sand, stone, or sub floors with ease and with several options. Tiles can be installed using screeds with glue, or you can make use of raised pedestal installations to allow room for pipes and wiring. If you use raised tiles, accessing the systems below is as easy as just lifting up a slab like a lid.
Mirage takes its environmental obligations seriously and follows Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control protocols. This means EVO tiles are certified as using the best available techniques and manufacturing technology to reduce energy consumption and reduce or eliminate emissions and pollution.
Create an Attractive Look Anywhere
Outdoor decoration encompasses a staggering number of features and elements like terraces, walkways, patios, pool areas, stairs, walls, driveways, and much more. EVO tiles feature numerous special elements that let you fully customize any part of an outdoor environment right down to the tiniest detail. With over 60 colours in 13 collections and six different sizes—not even counting different designs such as those that can mimic the high-end look of wood flooring—there are no outdoor spaces that EVO can't enhance and beautify. They even offer complete systems for pool surrounds and can create custom pieces as needed.
Handy for Large Areas
The level of detail given to each EVO tile means that each slab has calculated flatness and size precision. This allows for a strong visual impact and strong finish even on large areas like driveways, street furnishings, commercial or public pools, and more.
Safe and Practical
EVO tiles are extremely durable, low-maintenance, and safe, with good traction and grip thanks to their non-slip surface. These traits combine to mean that any surface featuring EVO porcelain tiles will be safe for all kinds of foot traffic and can minimize the safety risk posed by things like water or mud. EVO tiles help keep people safe and secure while beautifying your outdoor space.
