The trend for inside-out living continues to gather pace in the UK, running hand-in-hand with the ever-improving quality of the exterior tile ranges available from the world’s top tile manufacturers. One of the latest arrivals on the scene is Tablon from the trend-setting French factory Novoceram.
This wood-effect through-body porcelain range for exterior use has an appealing aged look time. Tablon faithfully reproduces the look of weathered and sun-bleached wood; with minute cracks, fissures and furrows enhancing the characteristic veins of the natural timber, giving the finished deck a sense of nobility.
Tablon is the latest addition to Novoceram’s Outdoor Plus collection of 20mm thick porcelain tiles. It is available in two formats: 300 by 1,200 and 600 by 600mm. There are three colour options: Tablon Clair, a warm white and extremely luminous oak; Tablon Naturel, a natural oak-effect that looks like the original colour has been tempered by long exposure to the elements; and Tablon Gris, a teak-effect with a grey base colour and silvery highlights.
All the tiles have a structured finish, while the range of special pieces includes swimming pool trims.
