Cutting Edge

New flooring and surface options bring style outdoors

Trex’s Transcend Lineage composite decking is manufactured using heat-mitigating technology that makes it cooler underfoot than the brand’s other offerings, as it reflects rather than absorbs the sun’s rays. Available in four colors; Biscayne is pictured. trex.com

An anti-slip surface and two-centimeter thickness make AExtra20 porcelain tile pavers suitable for outdoor use. The rectified, 24-by-24-inch tiles come in seven hues replicating quartz, stone, terrazzo and limestone. Pennsylvania Gray is pictured. besttile.com

Lapitec sintered stone is composed of natural minerals compacted to create a nonporous, weather-resistant surface. Full-body slabs boast a range of colors and thicknesses. Bianco Olimpia (pictured on countertop and backsplash) was introduced in 2023. lapitec.com

De Marchi Verona, an Italian maker of porcelain surfaces, has debuted its Cross Collection. Designed by Marta Martino, the handcrafted, three-dimensional panels (shown on left) feature a raised motif covered in tiny studs. The material is weatherproof for al fresco living. demarchiverona.it

Made from PVC, Fiberon’s Paramount Decking is wood-free, making it a good choice for marine environments such as docks. Resistant to mold, water and warping, the boards come in four colors; Mantel Clay is pictured. fiberondecking.com
