Do you prefer the courtyard side or the garden side? Porcelain often has the image of a material as fragile as it is noble, which can only be used with soft steps, with a lot of precautions… And yet, porcelain products are perfectly suited to outdoor use. Indeed, it is extremely resistant and you can without hesitation bring it outside, both under the rain and under the sunshine.
Today, Becasa Porcelain takes you for a walk… in your own garden. Lighting, crockery, decoration: don’t be shy and let your porcelain objects get some fresh air!
The use of porcelain outdoors
Porcelain is fired at much higher temperatures than ceramic: around 1320℃. Thanks to this, it is perfectly resistant to frost and bad weather. It can therefore easily take up residence outside your home and decorate your terrace or garden.
Advantages and disadvantages of porcelain
Porcelain is a high-end material, and the quality is always there! And it offers multiple benefits.
First of all, the white porcelain that we use at Reminiscence Home is made from high-quality raw materials. It presents resistance to any test. But that’s not all. Porcelain is waterproof, making it the ideal material for outdoor use. Neither rain, nor snow, nor stains, nor salt will affect your white porcelain objects, which can remain outside 365 days a year without altering in any way.
Then, porcelain is the most resistant of ceramics. It is therefore robust enough not to suffer from the small inconveniences linked to the proximity of birds or insects. She is also not afraid of mold or the sun. And if you equip your family home with porcelain vases, you do not risk having to renew them each time you go on vacation.
Finally, porcelain is easy to maintain outdoors. It does not deteriorate, discolor, warp, or stain. It resists the passage of time and keeps all its elegance over the years.
How to decorate your exterior with porcelain?
You have several options for showcasing porcelain in the decoration of your garden or balcony. Whether porcelain pendant lamps, delicate plates, or timeless pottery, they would be your always choice.
Pots and planters
Sandstone, even from the best manufacturers, is a porous material that allows the roots to breathe but must be protected from frost. Conversely, porcelain is waterproof, which makes it ideal for your pots and planters installed outdoors. Thus, you offer your plants a superior-quality setting in which they can flourish. And you will happily enjoy it during your Sunday lunches, in the shade of the oak planted by your great-grandfather at the bottom of the garden.
Porcelain exterior lights
The Becasa‘s porcelain creations offer a touch of elegance and originality to your garden decoration. Do you prefer the natural and sober appearance of a luminaire with raw finishes, or on the contrary, the transparency and brilliance of a shiny enamel to reflect the rays of the sun in the early morning?
To illuminate your summer evenings under your favorite tree, you can opt for a pendant light from The Becasa: the roundness and softness of its white porcelain disc are delicious! It will be the discreet and benevolent companion for your dinners with friends as well as your romantic breakfasts. As for the rocking chair of the pergola in which you like so much to change the world with your half, offer him a pretty portable lamp full of warm simplicity: for example The Becasa’s delicate Amarillo model, with eternally modern lines.
If you have enough space in your garden, you can accommodate one or more porcelain statuettes. It gives life and character to a garden. Choose objects that look like you, that are faithful to your tastes and your personality. Male, female, animal, or imaginary silhouettes, everything is allowed!
