Take the look you love on the inside to the outdoors. The trend has been that more households than ever are creating custom outdoor living spaces. You can too, using the same materials in your outdoor space that you used indoors. It may sound a bit upside down and backwards, but when you see the look, you’ll want to move forward.

Porcelain pavers are an excellent example of a dual-purpose material. Daltile’s Xteriors collection offers the beautiful look of the same fine natural wood and stone products you use inside – in outdoor pavers. Porcelain is popular for use outdoors, and an easy choice. It’s durable, stain and frost resistant, water and fire resistant, it can withstand high winds, and it’s not heavy.

Commissary is an excellent choice for those who want a wood look with the durability of a porcelain product. Available in five colors and in two sizes, Commissary pavers will give your patio or deck an elegant finish.

Stone Attache porcelain pavers give your outdoor space the authentic look of stone. Choose from a variety of grays, black, white and taupe with marble-like veining. Stone Attache is available in multiple sizes, making it a great match for any theme, modern or traditional.

These same great products don’t have to be limited to your patio. You can use them in a custom outdoor fireplace, your pool and even on your roof. Instead of standard shingles, porcelain roofing gives you an elegant, timeless look, and it can withstand extreme wear and tear. Best of all, it’s affordable.
