What are Porcelain Pavers?

Introduction to Porcelain

This type of outdoor flooring material is made from high-quality porcelain.

Porcelain itself is a ceramic material that is manufactured with strength and durability in mind. Mixed with fine-grained clay and a variety of other materials, the result is a highly non-porous, scratch-resistant and non-staining material.

For that reason, among others that we will explain further on below, porcelain is commonly used around the home. Dishware, tiles, floors, backsplashes, pool decks, sinks and outdoor pavers are all commonly made out of porcelain.

Versatility of Porcelain


Fortunately, being a manufactured product, porcelain pavers can be provided in all manner of shapes and sizes, as well as colours and styles.

In actual fact, you can even design porcelain to mimic the aesthetic of everything from natural stone

to concrete but with the added advantages of this unique material.

The Benefits of Porcelain Pavers

Should you be considering porcelain for use in your outdoor pavers? Well, that depends on your needs, budget, preferences, and the particulars of your application.

There are, however, many advantages and benefits to porcelain pavers.

High Breakage Load

Thanks to the density of the material and the robustness of the manufacturing process, one slab of porcelain can take more than 1,000 kilograms of load weight. This high breakage load threshold is extraordinarily useful for use as floor pavers.




There are a variety of great looking and hardy flooring materials, but porcelain pavers come with the added benefit of having an excellent anti-slip surface. This gives you–and your loved ones–peace of mind that whether you’re installing porcelain on your patio flooring which may get wet from the rain or around your pool which is certainly going to get wet, you won’t be faced with any unnecessary danger.

High Level Resistance

Weather, water, salt, fire, heat… Porcelain is highly resistant to it all! Investing the money in good quality pavement is only as good as its durability and with porcelain, you can rest assured that you’re getting more than your money’s worth and a solid return on your investment.

Easy to Clean

Porcelain is super easy to both maintain and clean. Simply sweep aside dirt and dust or hose off debris. Even stains can be dealt with using nothing more than water and mild detergent. Porcelain pavers remain looking excellent for many, many years being highly resistant to fading, discolouration, staining and the effects of even direct sunlight.


Unlike other flooring material options, porcelain is completely non-porous (less than 0.1% porous, in fact)! This is why it’s very common to find porcelain pavers used in pool areas in homes across Perth.


Porcelain is manufactured using very eco-friendly methods and with minimal impact on the environment. By reducing waste and energy use to the bare minimum, our porcelain pavers are among the best options for flooring if sustainability is a priority.

The Disadvantages of Porcelain Pavers

There are a few drawbacks to consider when it comes to porcelain being used for flooring and pavers.


Porcelain is not the cheapest option on the menu. Long term, it is absolutely economically effective and its long shelf-life makes up for the initial investment. But if your access to adequate finances in the present moment is limited, you may need to consider alternate options.

Difficult in Installation

While durable and hardy, the flip side of porcelain’s strength is that it is harder to cut and drill into than concrete. Add that to the fact that it requires extensive preparation during installation, and porcelain can be quite labour intensive.
