Inspiration

The pandemic has increased our appreciation of outdoor spaces and research shows that in 2021 many of us spent an average 2 hours per day outside compared to pre-pandemic levels. We appear to be in no hurry to return to indoor living and socialising.

Instead, we’re keener than ever to get creative with our yards, porches, and patios. It appears we have been increasingly enjoying our outdoor spaces and are looking to capitalise on them and utilise them as addition spaces that can be lived in, turning our outdoor spaces into welcoming places for both work and socialising.

Updating an external space can also add value to your home. Research conducted shows that updating a garden or outdoor space can potentially add 20% to the value of your property. When that outdoor space becomes a useable and functional feature for entertaining, socialising or even work then the added value realised can be more than updating an internal space and arguably at a fraction of the cost.

Porcelain Paving from pavingstoredirect.co.uk is the perfect material to create usable, functional and unique outdoor spaces due to the infinite design options, durability and overall technical characteristics of the premium quality product we supply from some of the worlds leading manufacturers.

Colour Trends for 2022

Grey will be the colour of choice across flooring and paving and accessories such as garden furniture. Grey tones can add dramatic contrast to external finishes, provide a contemporary or rustic finish to any exterior space and the shade variation of grey provides almost endless possibilities regarding hard landscaping materials such as outdoor porcelain slabs.

Design Trends for 2022

Grey may be the colour for 2022, but it does not hold you back when it comes to creativity. We have a broad portfolio of grey pavers covering the increasing trend for terrazzo, the classical finish of modern slate or the elegance of marble effects.

Terrazzo has been an increasingly popular product to use internally and and is sure to be a hit externally. With its classic appearance Terrazzo effect porcelain pavers will soon be available from pavingstoredirect.co.uk keep checking back for further updates.

Natural looking materials that combine aesthetics with practicality will be another key trend for 2022 as we continue to make the most of our new found enjoyment of external spaces. 20mm porcelain paving slabs are a perfect material to achieve a natural looking, practical, durable and hardwearing surface.

Large formats combined with contemporary elegance add a statement finish to a large garden or patio area utilising the benefits of larger format products are that they maximise outdoor spaces and means a reduction in grouting lines. XL pavers aren’t necessarily exclusive to large patio areas. Larger format tile usage in a small area can provide the illusion of enhancing space.
