Outdoor-Indoor Living

What is outdoor-indoor living?

Outdoor-indoor living references the ability to extend your living space with your garden in a seamless manner. Connecting spaces using smart flooring choices, with bi-fold or sliding doors, gives an open plan feel and can enhance the flow of your home or public area.

A great way to achieve the outdoor-indoor living aesthetic, is by using tiles. There is a huge selection of tiles, which allow you to co-ordinate the style of indoor standard thickness ceramic tiles, with 20mm vitrified slabs, giving a seamless look from inside to outside.

Some examples of tile ranges we can offer at EMC Tiles, with co-ordinating indoor and outdoor tiles are:


Rondine Ceramica: Ardesie | Greenwood | Class | Hard & Soft

Novabell: Eiche  | Tribeca

Imola: X-Rock

When comparing to indoor ceramic tiles, vitrified tiles are much stronger, they absorb less water and are usually longer lasting, with abrasion and stain resistance.


Outdoor tiles also have a higher anti-slip rating, of R11, meaning you’ll be safe in wet weather.
