Match your interior and exterior with Eco Friendly Facades and Eco Friendly Tiles.

The incorporation of indoor-outdoor flow is becoming more popular and commonplace throughout commercial projects. In order to create spaces that feel larger, co-ordinating floor and wall tiles are used to create a consistent, unbroken flow from the inside out. This is especially important for projects where user experience is a key function of the overall design. Places like cafes, hotel lobbies, restaurants and shopping malls all require a smooth transition from interior to exterior to maximise functionality. 

Having steps or a sudden change in material on the floor or cladding is a sure fire way to disrupt these transitions, the solution – porcelain. Porcelain is durable, water and stain resistant and relatively inexpensive. It can also be made to look like a wide variety of other materials such as metal, stone, wood or marble. That takes care of the floors, but what happens when a build requires the cladding to match or compliment the wall? This is where Eco Friendly Tiles has an Ace up its sleeve.

You may well know of our Shannon range, an extremely robust, durable panel that can be laid on the floor or wall. But did you know it can also be used as a facade?

The superstar of our tile range is also the primary member of our facade range. Resistant to chemicals, graffiti, frost, fire and UV, with LEED and EPD accreditation, SKA and BREEAM benefits, you’d be hard pressed to find a better solution for cladding your floor, interior and exterior.

A recent, modern piece of architecture in the city of London has made full use of these unique benefits. The newly refurbished building uses Eco Friendly Tiles and Eco Friendly Facades products that cover the building from the exterior to interior. The Shannon range panels played a key role in providing a practical material for the interior and exterior that would seamlessly meld in with the aesthetic of the build.
