Interior and exterior become one

Interior and exterior become one
August 5, 2016

With our moderate climate, indoor-outdoor flow is something of a New Zealand obsession – and we are a nation that loves the outdoors. Having easy access to decks, gardens, patios and porches allows us to enjoy the sun and fresh air in an extension of our inside living space – and it has now become an important selling point for any home.

Creating outdoor zones is at the top of many renovators’ to-do lists and opening the inside up to the outside can also create additional living spaces for growing families. So it’s important to choose products that are hardwearing and can stand the rigors of family life and New Zealand’s harsh UV rays.


Firth’s range of Designer Concrete comes in a variety of aggregates and colours with Firth Elements Coloured Concrete also offering considerable choice in colour and finishes – allowing you to create hardwearing, easy care floors.


Firth Designer Series paving is an inspiring, high-end honed residential paving range that allows you to achieve a premium finish that is complementary to the Firth Designer Concrete range in size and colour, offering you more flexibility and creativity.

This Designer Concrete floor is a blend of Awatoto pebble – 16m and 10mm with a small amount of fines and Elements (08 ThunderCloud) for the colour. It was polished to 3000 grit and a mineral based preservation system was applied to enhance and protect the floor. The paver used is Piazza™ Paver (400 x 200 x 50mm) in Avon and Raglan Sands.

Create your ideal indoor-outdoor flow using Firth’s range of products.
