Prefer the look of classic wooden decking, but don’t want the maintenance or risk of slipping on the surface when it’s wet? There’s plenty of options for this too, including Just Venice from Gardenia Orchidea. The majority of outdoor tiles carry a slip rating of R11, to ensure safety when the surface is wet.
For a more practical alternative to the traditional paved stone look, stone effect and travertine tiles are also a popular choice for many people. These Montpellier floor tiles below, have a wonderful weathered and rustic appeal.
However, it’s not just flooring to consider. Cladding walls with these stylish designs, like these Bristol Red Brick tiles, can help to inject life and character back into areas which may have been looking dull and tired.
Brick effect and textured split face tiles, such as the Cubics shown below, are also becoming more popular.
Installation of Outdoor Tiles
The most simple way to install outdoor tiles is to loose lay them onto gravel or grass.
For more complicated areas, such as working with uneven substrates, or working around cables or pipes, a pedestal system could be the ideal solution. Laying the tiles onto pedestals elevates the flooring, allowing for space underneath and easily adjustable levelling.
Hiding unsightly cables etc underneath the tiles, means you can keep a clean, minimalist look. Using this pedestal system also means that water freely drains between the tiles, as they are not grouted.
