Stone-effect patio tiles that evoke memories of past times and embrace the natural dimension of outdoor living

Summer is almost with us, and with it comes the growing urge to spend time outdoors, in the open air.

Whether for leisure time, working dinners or lunches, or just the pleasure of being outside in fine weather, patios are places where people can come together, pleasant places for savouring the fragrances and energy that summer brings.

When it comes to choosing outdoor pavings, porcelain stoneware is the ideal solution: it is high-performing and able to withstand weather, scratches, abrasion and chemicals.

Amongst porcelain stoneware pavings for patios and outdoor balconies, the stone effect is a highly suitable, very evocative option. Let’s see why.

Apart from being very fashionable during the last few years, stone-effect materials have high-class status: hard-wearing and elegant, synonymous with Italian chic, they fit attractively into the mood of outdoor contexts with subtlety and grace.

They evoke memories of past times and maintain the natural flavour of outdoor locations, bringing high quality, reliability and durability to patios and balconies.

Marazzi offers a variety of stone-effect pavings for patios, including Memo, a collection entirely conceived for outdoor use, and Mystone Ceppo di Gré20, also available in the indoor version.

Memo is the new outdoor stone-effect collection from Marazzi. Designed as an accurate reinterpretation of Pietra Italia and Burgundy Limestone, these patio tiles exquisitely reproduce the elegant vein patterning of marble and the uneven markings typical of limestones.

Mystone Ceppo di Gré20 is the other stone-effect stoneware suitable for both residential and commercial outdoor spaces. Accurately evoking the majestic beauty of rock faces but with impressive elegance and refinement, this collection gives patios a natural dimension, in harmony and continuity with their surroundings.

Overall, stone-effect patio pavings add tough, elegant finishes with natural shade variations to the location and blend elegantly into the surrounding environment.
