The complete renovation of a South London family home called for 80 square metres of Porcel-Thin’s Paris floor tiles. Used to tile the floor of a large luxury ground floor kitchen extension, the true beauty of this project was the flow of our elegant light grey kitchen floor tiles seamlessly into the garden – showing how effectively the Porcel-Thin range can be used as outdoor porcelain tiles.
Chic porcelain kitchen floor tiles
Without doubt, the high-spec kitchen extension carried out by this professional property developer is impressive. Porcel-Thin’s trademark large kitchen floor tiles are used for quick, even coverage. This time Paris Light Grey measuring 120x60cm and just 4.8mm thick with a matt finish to provide a safer more non-slip surface. Our stylish kitchen floor tiles are complemented beautifully by utilitarian-style fixtures and fittings, marble counter-tops and a neutral shaded colour scheme.
When viewed from the back garden, it is apparent that the Dulwich house has a 2-story extension to the right-hand side. Typical of this style of property, this half width extension would have originally housed a galley kitchen on the ground floor and a bathroom on the first floor. But this architectural ace had something cool and contemporary in mind for this family home.
Porcelain paving to impress
Here, the developer has extended the Glengarry Road property to the side and out into the garden, which continues the neat chic vibe. By using skilled construction to remove the walls of the old kitchen, and supporting the building above with structural steels, they have cleverly drawn-out the space to allow for the growing family while adding value and aesthetic appeal to the property.
The new and improved space includes a large open plan living room, a utility room, a diner and a kitchen that extends seamlessly out into the garden through urban-style bifold doors. This is not only the perfect project for showing how Porcel-Thin tiles can be used as outdoor porcelain tiles as well as indoor porcelain tiles, but it is an excellent example of how a UK property can be adapted to suit modern family living.
