Inject some understated style into your exteriors with the subtle elegance of Surface, a range of durable large format, concrete effect tiles designed for outdoor use.
Hardwearing porcelain construction
Large format means fewer tiles used fewer grout lines
This sumptuous range of concrete effect tiles is perfect for those looking to achieve a contemporary look in outdoor areas such as patios, verandas and pathways. Constructed from hardwearing porcelain and featuring rectified edges for cleaner grout lines, Surface offers a realistic replication of concrete in tile form. Unlike genuine concrete products, however, Surface will not absorb water and is resistant to staining, making them particularly suitable for gardens and patios, as well as commercial installations.
