Get creative with 2cm tiles

Formerly, the 1cm tile was the tile of choice for exterior use. Now, 2cm tiles are becoming more popular for a wide variety of reasons. Firstly, they’re super-tough and work extremely well in harsher or colder environments. They’ll easily survive countless British winters.

They also come in many creative styles and colours ranging from classic to contemporary, bright and loud to minimalist, natural to modern. They are easily laid via a variety of different methods and can be employed in gardens, on terraces, balconies or nearly any other outdoor area. They offer brilliant visual appeal combined with awesome physical qualities, they’re both long-lasting and aesthetically beautiful.

Enhanced durability

2cm tiles have benefits across the board. They’re more durable and stronger than 1cm tiles and that valuable 1cm extra thickness improves their durability in the following areas:

  • To loads – 2cm slabs can typically withstand loads of over 1000kg. They are more resistant to shock than 1cm tiles.
  • To heat or cold – 2cm slabs can take highs of 60c and lows of below -50c. They are therefore slip resistant across a wider range of temperature than 1cm tiles.
  • To Harmful Agents – 2cm slabs efficiently resist many acids, e.g. from rainwater, salts from the earth and other corrosive chemicals from gardens, e.g. fertiliser.

2cm tiles also come in a variety of textured finishes, many of which are slip-resistant for poolside or winter use. Both beautiful and long-lasting, they cater to many exterior use purposes. Extra durability means that once you fit your garden with 2cm tiles, you’ll rarely need to worry about serious maintenance and especially not about replacing broken or cracked tiles.

Easy to fit

2cm tiles are very easy to install and can be put in place over many different types of outside surfaces. For example, they can be laid on top of solid flat outdoor surfaces with raised feet or even higher up, on pedestals. This can allow water to run freely underneath preventing flooding or upheaval from ice. Of course, they can be installed using traditional tile adhesive on flat concrete surfaces.

2cm tiles are also heavier than 1cm tiles and are therefore easier to install on more slippery surfaces like sand where they can even be left freestanding. The same goes for grass; the extra cm of thickness and therefore weight ensures that grass will less easily grow over the top.

Tile types and styles

2cm tiles come in many styles designed to imitate many materials from Italian stones to contemporary synthetic surfaces. From contemporary stone to brighter more modern clean porcelain or darker stone-effect tiles, 2cm tiles will fit into any outdoor space design easily.

We also have modular sets of 2cm tiles available for patterning in various ways. 2cm tiles are typically made from porcelain but can imitate all sorts of stone or other surfaces very well. With gloss glazing or matted, textured finishes, 2cm tiles pair perfectly with exterior designs of all types.

For garden and home renovation

Tiles including 2cm tiles are perfect for home and garden renovation projects. Firstly, they lend many construction benefits over other flooring types given that they’re far easier to maintain, clean and last much longer.

Secondly, they’re extremely versatile and can easily be moved around in case you change your mind of where best to place them and thirdly, they’re available in many different shapes, sizes and styles to ensure you have a great array of choice when choosing the best tile for your home project. Tiles also reduce allergies and are anti-slip, even when wet.

Typical sizes

The sizes of 2cm tiles vary with larger options e.g. 800m x 400mm or 600mm x 600mm or smaller options ranging from 600mm x 300mm and 300mm x 300mm. Some packs, e.g. our Ecuador packs, cover areas of 1.28sq meters and are available as either matching or modular tile packs,
