Gayafores ceramic proposals for outdoor spaces

After a time in which we have spent many days at home we have learned to value much more the exterior spaces of our home, such as terraces, balconies, patios and swimming pools. The open areas of the home have taken absolute prominence and this has led us to consider renewing them to enjoy the tranquillity and freshness they offer. Whether you live somewhere where it's already summer, or you live in the southern hemisphere and still have to wait to enjoy the summer, it's always a good time to give a new air to the outside areas of your home.

In this sense, ceramics will be the best ally, because it is easy to install and clean and requires no maintenance, as well as guaranteeing maximum hygiene and safety, without forgetting that there is a great diversity of designs so that you can choose the one that best suits your style. 

Within the range of ceramics on the market, porcelain tiles are a safe choice because of their resistance, functionality and decorative versatility, being perfect for covering the floors and walls of terraces, balconies and pool exteriors.

In the Gayafores catalogue it's possible to find various proposals of porcelain tiles to get the terrace or balcony ready for the season, that stand out for their non-slip properties (all are type 3, which is the specific one for exteriors). Porcelain is a waterproof material with minimum porosity and minimum water absorption, and this is especially important in any wet area to avoid slips and falls. In addition, porcelain tile is resistant to heat and cold and will not break or crack in the event of sudden temperature changes or bad weather. Neither the low temperatures of winter nor the stifling heat of the summer months affect it. It is also very resistant to scratching, transit, knocks and impacts and, as if that were not enough, it offers infinite decorative possibilities, being able to opt for wood, stone, cement, deco, rustic and so on. 

Here below, some different options from the range of anti-slip products by the brand:

  • Woods: the natural follows the trend. Inspired by nature, our woods have an unsurpassed realism, bringing a very welcoming touch to outdoor spaces. (series: Amazonia, Oregon, Origin, Tribeca, Vancouver)
  • Stones: also inspired by nature, ceramic stones dress terraces and balconies with a very contemporary and long lasting touch. (series: Dover, Portman, Quarzite and Sahara)
  • Cements: they don't go out of fashion. Its easy cleaning, its neutral aesthetics and its robustness make cements a covering material especially suitable for outdoor areas. (serie: Sassi Antislip)
  • Decos: to give a decorative touch or delimit the space, opt for a collection of deco will always be a success. With their colours and geometric shapes they will fill your terrace or balcony with personality, turning them into unique and original outdoor spaces. (serie: Heritage)
