Our favourite outdoor tiles

Thursday 6 August 2020, Written by Laura Tompkins Tags: outdoor, Trends

This time of year sees many of us updating and renovating our gardens and outdoor spaces into our own little slices of paradise, especially with the warm and sunny weather we’ve been having this spring and summer!

If you’re transforming your outside space, have you considered tiles? While there are several options when it comes to flooring, such as decking and concrete, tiles are a great choice in terms of practicality and style. Not only are they hard wearing and easy to maintain, there are also a number of patterns, colours and formats available so that you can create a beautiful space you’ll love for years to come.

We’ve got a varied selection of outdoor floor tiles, from natural tones and finishes to bright colours and bold patterns, here’s a closer look.

 

Natural Tones

For those creating a garden scheme in neutral tones, take a look at our wood-effect tile options.

The Lignum collection offers six subtle shades, including soft greys and warm browns, all in a slip-resistant finish. Unlike real wood or decking, these tiles are impervious to rot and rising damp and are very low maintenance as they don’t need sanding or resealing - they’re even wear resistant!

Gorgeous in Grey

It’s no surprise that grey tiles are a popular choice for homeowners, grey tones have been on-trend for some time and the trend shows no sign of slowing down either.

If you’re looking for grey tiles that work with your scheme check out Kaamos, also available in Black and Ivory, these tiles are perfect for indoor and outdoor use – and even better when used in synergy.

Pretty Patterns

Incorporating pattern into your outdoor space is easily done with tiles, and we have a wide selection of beautiful options, mainly in our Odyssey collection. This collection is home to a range of patterned tiles and borders all of which are inspired by journeys of discovery from across the globe meaning you can create your own holiday feel in your back garden with tiles! Choose from delicate prints and soft shades to deep reds, buffs and monochrome styles.

Heritage Style

If you’re creating a more heritage feel then you may already be considering Victorian Floor Tiles, which are perfect for achieving this look. Although traditionally used on front paths, porches and in hallways, Victorian floor tiles look stunning in any outside area. Their durable nature, endless styling options and colourways means there’s a Victorian Floor tile pattern for everyone’s taste.
