Porcelain Plank Paving

What is Porcelain Plank Paving?

Plank paving describes long, narrow paving slabs, also known as linear paving. Think of wooden planks - plank paving is a very similar shape. Porcelain paving is often used for plank paving in high-traffic areas, due to its durability and strength.

Because of the way these porcelain patio tiles are used in modern garden designs, they are also sometimes described as 'outdoor border tiles' or 'edging slabs'.

The Benefits of Using Porcelain Plank Paving

Plank-shaped paving is a great way to change up the look of your garden pathways and patios, introducing a range of eye-catching design opportunities.

Used as the main choice of slab, its slim, narrow dimensions can add energy to any outdoor design. The linear shape makes a valuable contribution to modern gardens, where crisp, straight lines are a prominent design feature.

Guaranteed-Quality Porcelain Plank Paving

You'll find London Stone's porcelain plank paving in two of our porcelain collections.

In our Luxury Italian porcelain paving range, we offer mellow Wood Effect plank tiles. Rovere paving emulates natural oak, while our Cinder paving brings a gentle charred colour that expands your grey paving options.

Both plank tiles have an enormous advantage over using real wood, as they will never rot and are highly slip-resistant. For more design ideas, take a look at our Wood Effect plank paving style tips.

For less stylised colours, plank-shaped patio tiles are available in our Project porcelain collection. These options are specifically selected by us to include the most sought-after colours, from the light tone of Cream paving through to the dark colours of our Charcoal tiles.

Both these ranges carry our 10-year porcelain guarantee, so you can rest assured that your plank paving will perform and continue to look good for many years to come.

Designing with Porcelain Plank Paving

A very popular design combination is gravel and plank paving, especially for pathways and dry gardens.

The distinctive, contemporary outline of these porcelain slabs creates a strong contrast with the small-sized aggregate. This is a clever design choice when you want to inject interest into a scheme with one overall colour. The textural contrast emphasises the shape and adds plenty of eye-catching detail.

Using Planks as Porcelain Border Tiles

Thanks to its linear shape, plank paving is ideal for adding a finishing edge to your porcelain patio tiles. If you'd like to affix a contrasting colour to the paved area, adding outdoor porcelain border tiles as an edging idea to your patio or path will help to frame and define its edge.

There are many ways to get creative when using slabs in contrasting colours. Find more ideas for mix-and-match paving here.

Using Plank Paving to Manipulate Space

One extremely practical way to enjoy our porcelain plank tiles is by using them to play with space in your garden. Their linear proportions can help to make a narrow outdoor space feel wider, creating a stylish illusion.

Using porcelain patio tiles for a garden path design gives you the option to create a fast-flowing energy by laying them along the direction of the path. This can help speed the eye to a focal point, enabling you to curate the outdoor space of your dreams.

Alternatively, when placed across the path, porcelain plank paving slows down the energy flow, making a short garden feel much longer. Find out more about designing with plank paving here.

Do You Offer an Installation Service for Your Porcelain Plank Paving Tiles?

We don't offer an installation service for our plank paving at the moment. However, if you require a landscaper or garden designer, our Landscape Specialist Scheme may be of use.

Before committing to a landscaper, you should ensure that the person you choose is right for your outdoor porcelain design project. It's worth asking your proposed tradesperson if you can view a portfolio of similar works - we also recommend getting several quotations before committing.

More information about installing our porcelain patio tiles can be found on our dedicated Installation FAQ page.
