Usually dry areas
The dry areas can have a wider range of tiles since they are only wet when it rains. However the tiles still need to be suitable for outdoor conditions. You can seal your favourite types to use outside, although remember to re-seal regularly.
Decks, patios & stages
Decks, patios and stages are elevated outdoor platforms that stand alone or adjoin a building. They are often made of concrete, and then you can cover them with your choice of materials, including tiles.
Gazebos, pavilions & pergolas
Gazebos and pavilions are standalone garden shelters, both with roofs. Whereas pergolas have an open slotted roof to carry climbing vines. Both are great outdoor dining and entertaining areas. Due to this, a strong floor is important. Both types of structure lend themselves well to the exotic feel of tiles. Where pavers are too expensive and you have a concrete base, tile is a good option.
Ornamental gardens & seats
If you have a concrete foundation, tiles are great to delineate an area. Examples are where you have a potted plant, zen or statue garden, and around your garden seats. Many different styles can be obtained with tiles, from formal to rustic and contemporary.
You can have an artistic mosaic of tiles laid in a grand design to show off an open space. They are great around fountains, or for entrance approaches and courtyards. Many people love the classical style of mosaic, although you can do very modern designs too. Your business logo can be made in tiles to ornament your driveways and open spaces to welcome your visitors. Our outdoor flooring can help you optimize your design and materials.
We recommend heading over to our companion team's site, Landscaping by Freddy that works with our outdoor flooring. It describes in great detail all the places that are part of your outdoor environment. Many of these look and function well with tiles. Even some you might not have thought of yet!
