The decision to pave indoor and outdoor spaces with the same material may be due to practical reasons or inspired by aesthetic reasons, such as, for example, making different rooms uniform. This applies both to houses and to shops and office buildings.
In a house, especially in small houses, uniform floor tiles can make the space look larger. For indoor floors, the same tiles can be used in every room, both in the living area and bedroom area: in the kitchen, entrance, living room, dining room, bedroom and bathroom. Similarly, for the indoor floors of a commercial or office building you can opt for a uniform floor covering for the exhibition areas and areas accessible to the public, bathrooms, technical areas, service areas etc. For residential and non-residential locations, the Marazzi catalogue presents a variety of ideas for an indoor floor covering that can be extended outdoors to pave terraces, porches, stairways, pedestrian paths, driveways and garages.
Their characteristics make porcelain stoneware tiles the best-suited to combined indoor/outdoor installation. Stoneware tiles are waterproof, feature special outdoor anti-slip finishes and are tough thanks to the high performance of Marazzi’s technical collections and their extra thickness.
For indoor and outdoor floor coverings, Marazzi offers various collections of stoneware tiles with stone, concrete, terracotta, resin, brick or wood effects, as well as a collection of high-performance technical porcelain stoneware, designed for very busy spaces. To break up the uniformity of a flooring that is identical indoors and outdoors, you can combine different tile sizes and vary the installation layouts.
