The 3 advantages of outdoor ceramics: terraces, balconies, gardens…

Summer invites to enjoy the outdoor spaces, both in homes and in leisure venues, swimming pools or public places. The terraces, balconies and gardens take centre stage and it is important to know how to “dress” them properly. For this, there is no material like outdoor ceramics, but what characteristics does it have to be such a preferential option for builders, decorators and architects?

Azulejos Benadresa has an extensive range of ceramic products for flooring and exterior coating. It should be noted that among the different types of ceramics that exist, the best option for outdoor environments is porcelain, since it presents a greater strength and durability than the collections of red paste and white paste.


Ceramic is one of the materials that best withstand the passage of time, weight and weather conditions without showing any wear, which makes it perfect for exterior covering and paving, as they are usually more exposed to these stimuli.


Ceramic tiles have minimal porosity and barely absorb water, giving them great impermeability that helps them withstand frost and sudden temperature changes. In addition, this also makes them very easy to clean.


Ceramic designs can be inspired by any material, with any color, tone and finish. This provides enormous freedom when designing spaces, giving the option to play with formats and different patterns to create the desired effects in each atmosphere.

As added, one of the main features that is recommended for the use of outdoor ceramic is that it is non-slip. Outdoor ceramic floors are always exposed to water, so it is important to make sure that despite being wet they have sufficient traction to prevent accidents. Azulejos Benadresa has the Abstract collection, which has a special non-slip model for this type of use.

One of the Azulejos Benadresa’s novelties of this year that adapts more and better to outdoor spaces is Piatra, a collection inspired by stone to decorate with naturalness and elegance. Its three colors, Silver, Sand and Grey, are available in smooth design and in two models that feature graphic pattern: Path and Mirach.

Karma, a collection of the present created for the future

Azulejos Benadresa has recently launched its new collection Karma, a series of white paste coating in small format (7.5×30 cm) that comes to complete its collections of the XSAB range and is available in eight different colors.

Karma is a collection inspired by the way the present actions transcend into the future. It is a series whose axis is the balance between colors, shapes and textures, with finishes that invite you to create spaces with your own energy and that awaken all the senses.

Craftsmanship, small format and multiple placement possibilities for the interior cladding. Karma, with its irregular texture and destonified finish, is designed to create distinguished spaces with character.

A world of possibilities

With eight colors in very different tones and nuances, Karma is a very versatile collection that fits in any environment. From White to Black, through Pergamon, Musk, Lead, Fall, Turquoise and Green, each color brings a different air and a force of its own to the spaces.

In addition, the small format gives a lot of freedom to create different drawings. Karma can be placed horizontally, vertically, diagonally or mixed, which helps to build environments charged with dynamism.

Small format for large projects

Like good fragrances, Karma comes in a small jar. A type of format that makes it perfect for interior design projects that seek to create spaces full of personality, thanks to both its intense colors and its glossy finish with chameleon effect on the edges.

One of the most important aspects of this collection full of intensity and dynamism is its exclusive relief, which gives it a greater presence and enhances the effect of the drawing that you want to create through its placement.

Karma has come to stay charged with intensity and energy.

Today, interior design plays with various materials, designs, colors and finishes.
