Outdoor finishes tend to be the last thing we get to. When planning an overall design to your home, outdoor tiles must also be considered to ensure your home reads as a whole. TileArte’s Design Consultants are more than happy to assist with the selection of your outdoor tiles no matter what look you are trying to accomplish or at what stage you are at, from building a new home to planning a new little alfresco area.
Outdoor tiles are available in many formats. The most popular because of its durability and affordability is porcelain. Outdoor porcelain tiles are available in rock and sandblasted finishes with an array of colours on offer. Also, rising in popularity are travertine tiles. Travertine tiles give you a classic timeless look that will never date. Please see the travertine tiles description in the drop down menu for further details.
Outdoor porcelain tiles range in sizes starting from 300×300 through to 200×1200. Outdoor porcelain tiles can be utilised in any area of your outdoors including your patio, alfresco, pool areas, walkways and even driveways. When laying a porcelain tile on a driveway, it must be on a concrete slab. The advantage also of selecting a porcelain tile is they are also available in bullnose format for around the pool. If a bullnose is not available in the range you have selected, TileArte is pleased to offer to make them specifically for you with a wide variety of bullnose formats available to choose from. The beauty of selecting a porcelain tile for your outdoors is that they can be used in any area making the selection process far less daunting.
If you are hoping to accomplish a modern contemporary look by utilising the same tile outdoors as your interior, planning your outdoor tiles alongside your main floor tiles makes certain that the batches match and provide an overall seamless look. This provides great relief, as opposed to leaving it to a later date and receiving an outdoor tile a couple of shades lighter or darker than your main tile. Very disappointing!
Proving to be the most popular ranges for external tiles are the Italian full bodied porcelain. This is due to their beauty, durability and quality properties. Some popular series include Emotions in Urban Grey, Deep Brown and Warm Beige; Gate in Jet Black & Downtown; and the Life timber series. Life is a new addition to our tile world and is already proving to be extremely popular. Imagine having a timber deck without the problems and maintenance of timber. That is exactly what Life offers! Other colours are also available in the above listed series.
If porcelain is not what you are after, TileArte has numerous other options including terracotta and ceramic. Terracotta tiles are available in 300×300 and bullnose formats. Terracotta tiles will give your home a Tuscan feel, a grace that will always remain classic. Ceramic external tile sizes start from 330×330 through to 450×450. Ceramic has been around for the longest time and is the best economic choice. It is available in many different colours and styles.
