Bluenorte is a beautiful grey natural looking stone effect porcelain tile with a blue tint and realistic smooth stone texture. This outdoor stone is perfect for a modern contemporary garden looking to achieve a subtle minimalist look but to add a touch of elegance and natural charm.
Durable & frost-proof
Hardwearing porcelain construction
Large format means fewer tiles used fewer grout lines
Available in x2 variants: 10mm thick indoor tile and 20mm thick outdoor tile
Offering the look and feel of natural stone but with the advantage of being hardwearing and almost non-absorbent, Bluenorte is highly resistant to weathering and requires less maintenance than natural stone products. These tiles are also incredibly versatile when it comes to the settings in which they're installed - they look equally as fantastic whether installed independently or used to tile from indoor to outdoor areas to create a continous aesthetic. Please note that when installing a tile in an exterior environment a concrete base or screed will need to be applied beforehand. After the concrete has set the tiles should be installed using a flexible adhesive such as Keraquick or Keraflex Maxi.

Is Bluenorte outdoor floor tile suitable for use with underfloor heating?
