Outdoor Oasis: Porcelain Pavers That Look Like Real StoneSeptember 13, 2018
Do you dream of creating an outdoor oasis where you can entertain friends or family or just relax at the end of the day? While natural stone has long been the only option for patios, pool decks, and pathways, today, porcelain pavers that look just like natural stone are available! With advanced manufacturing techniques, MSI’s natural stone-look porcelain tile is designed to give you the look and the feel of real stone.
Of course, low-maintenance patio landscaping ideas that take minimal time in upkeep and care are always a plus, too. Because who doesn’t want to spend time more enjoying their oasis, and less time maintaining it? Our outdoor tiles are manufactured to withstand the elements and never need sealing, making them a virtually carefree choice to fulfill your hardscaping needs.

State-of-the-art inkjet printers allow us to create realistic stone-look porcelain tile like this gorgeous slate-look, Pedra Azul Arterra Paver. The advanced printing capabilities allow us to create the perfect balance of variation in tiles, mimicking the inflections, color variations, and textural difference inherent to stone. These porcelain pavers create a beautiful contemporary pool deck suitable for lazy sunny afternoons or boisterous evening parties. No one will be able to tell these are porcelain instead of natural stone, unless you spill the beans!
Another one of our popular slate-look outdoor tiles is our Mystique Multicolor Porcelain Pavers, with their rich russet and stone gray tones. Porcelain pavers are a smart solution for damp and humid areas, because unlike natural stone pavers, porcelain is resistant to mildew. These large 24x24 squares are ideal for creating intimate patios or meandering walkways, and can even be used to clad retaining walls or privacy walls.

For a more sleek, modern look, the steely gray tones of our Beton Antracite Arterra Pavers are a contemporary design-lover’s choice. With less color and pattern variation than in our other slate-look porcelain tiles, these subtle and streamlined pavers provide the backdrop to let other hardscaping elements be the star of the design. If you want a truly low-maintenance outdoor oasis, partner these outdoor tiles with artificial turf…and then simply relax and enjoy your space.

Natural quartzite is a popular stone for countertops, flooring, and backsplashes because of its beautiful light-reflecting properties and subtle veining. Now, you can use our exquisite quartzite-look Golden White Arterra Pavers in your outdoor installation as well. Here, a custom curved bench hugs a stone wall, while a stunning copper fire pit warms the space. One of the key benefits of porcelain that we haven’t mentioned is that porcelain tile is more affordable than natural stone tile. You can transform your backyard into a luxurious space with elegant custom touches, while still staying on budget.
Travertine has always been a popular natural stone for patios and pool decks. Now, with our travertine-look Living Style Beige Arterra Pavers, you can complete your project with these large-format porcelain tiles.
