How many mornings have you stood at the kitchen window looking out over the backyard, coffee in hand, and feeling a rising excitement of knowing the days of pulling out the blender, the barbecue, and the beef, are almost here? Or perhaps you reminisce about all those lazy afternoons spent relaxing with friends by the pool with a cold one or of the evenings spent roasting marshmallows with the kids at the fire? Your backyard has served you well over all these years. Isn’t it time to return the love?
Investing in a new patio design is always money well spent, and you will be happy you did as the days become consistently warmer and the urge to stay outside vastly outnumber the desire to stay all cozy inside.
If your ideal patio is one that embraces comfort and ease of maintenance, the Aristokrat® Series Slabs are bigger and bolder than ever before, both regarding size and capabilities. These porcelain slabs have the appearance of a high-end indoor tile, but at two-centimeters thick they are scratch-proof and are strong enough to be driven on. They come in 20 rich colour blends with subtle variations and textures that emulate natural limestone, granite, travertine, marble, and quartz. Aristokrat® Series is stain-resistant and incredibly lightweight at only nine pounds per square foot.
Available in multiple sizes, the versatile Aristokrat® Series allows for a wide variety of layout combinations achieving complete design freedom. The precise sizing greatly reduces installation time and cost when creating these intricate multi-piece patterns.
When it comes to colour choice, Senior Technical Sales representative Anders Danielsson shares that all colours of the series are extremely popular due to the diversity and ability to compliment almost any design theme within both residential and commercial spaces.
Traditionally porcelain has been used for extensive indoor applications but now with our advanced manufacturing technology, porcelain slabs can be used for a wide variety of outdoor hardscape applications.
The Aristokrat® Series is perfect for terraces, roof decks, patios, court yards, swimming pools, water features or any traditional hardscape areas. Porcelain slabs deliver performance, style, versatility and are resistant to staining, fading, marking, chemicals and extreme weather. It is the ideal choice for residential or commercial outdoor applications but can also be used indoors for aesthetic continuity.
This unique product, with next-generation technology, can be used for external architectural cladding as an alternative to conventional masonry products, providing a low maintenance high-quality, elegant finish.
Created by Abbotsford Concrete Products, the Aristokrat® Series is just one of many innovations developed by the company in their state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Serving Canada and the United States in providing the best products which meet or exceed strict ASTM or CSA Standards, and that is no small feat.
Backyards have endless possibilities so do not ignore the potential by bringing home new lawn furniture or putting up a few strings or pretty lights!
