Hospitality spaces have large expanses of highly visible flooring so it is important that whatever architects specify performs stylistically and functionally.

Tiling has long been regarded as the go-to option because it is easy to clean and practical. In durable materials such as porcelain and ceramic, it offers high-end finishes in on-trend styles.

RAK Ceramics is a world leader in the hi-tech production of innovative porcelain and ceramic tiles. 

The company's versatile, nature-inspired Curton range of stone-look porcelain tiles offers specifiers high visual impact and a relaxed vibe. Curton is available in Beige, Taupe or Grey.

Outdoor spaces can also benefit from a luxurious aesthetic. Use exterior-ready porcelain tiles to create a seamless flow from inside to outside. Areas such as glass extensions or bi-fold and sliding doors that open from a bar area onto an outdoor space are perfect for porcelain tiles, which offer an alternative to the more traditional patio materials of slabs and decking.

Smooth transitions from interior to exterior are easier to achieve with a single flooring specifcation. A porcelain tile that runs seamlessly from an inside space to an outdoor dining or relaxing area gives the illusion of space and creates a stylish, contemporary look. On a practical level, there is no change of texture or height, which makes maintenance easier. Opt for hard-wearing porcelain tiles that are colour-safe and weatherproof and you can use them anywhere.

The Outdoor tile collections from RAK Ceramics are made for exterior life. The 20mm extra thick tiles are strong, durable and weather resistant. Available in a wide range of styles and with an anti-slip finish, Outdoor tiles add a modern aesthetic to outdoor spaces and a luxurious feel underfoot.

They are also UV resistant so the colour won’t fade from direct sunlight.
