Patios and outdoor living spaces have become a staple piece for homeowners across the country and are a key feature in helping create an inviting and comfortable area for friends and family to relax. Each year, we see new trends emerge and old ones resurface. As the Summer months come to an end, it’s time to look at some of the top patio trends of 2023 that are here to stay. 

Wooden Style Porcelain Slabs 

Wooden decked patios have been around for decades and have helped create a focal point for gardens of all shapes and sizes. Wooden decking helps create a natural look in your garden and often contrasts well with its surroundings, whether that be your home or your garden, there’s no denying the stunning appearance of wooden decking patios. However, timber patios aren’t always the best option, that’s where wooden-style porcelain paving comes in. 
Unlike timber, our wooden effect porcelain paving does not require sealing to protect it. They also do not rot over the years — a common problem with decking. Additionally, the porcelain slabs do not become slippery when wet. Not only are porcelain slabs a more cost-effective option as you do not need to replace them, but they’re easier to maintain, look just as good and natural as timber and are considerably safer when exposed to wet and slippery conditions! 

Using Textured Slabs 

Textured tiles and slabs are a trend that has been gaining popularity for the past few years. Textured paving slabs help create a more organic and earthy feel within your garden and can add a rugged depth and dimension to your patio. As well as the aesthetic look a textured slab provides, they also help provide a slip-resistant. 
At Venus Stone, we have a range of textured paving slabs available, particularly through our sandstone and limestone selection! 

Minimalist Designs 

Sometimes, less is more. This is exactly what the minimalist design trend is all about. Minimalism has been an ever-growing trend for some time and is only growing year after year, particularly with a focus on neutral colours that complement the surroundings. 
One of the best ways to achieve a minimalist aesthetic is by using simple porcelain paving tones, such as white. The simplicity creates an extremely clean, relaxing and tranquil space that suits any garden! One of our most popular minimalist porcelain paving slabs is the quartz white porcelain paving.
