As the dust settles from the last 18 months, one thing is clear for our industry: there has never been a bigger demand for outdoor living spaces. Gathering and travel adjustments drove people to consider outdoor spaces to be just as valuable as indoor ones. Some experts predict that this focus on outdoor areas may be the new norm as designers and builders strive to meet increasing demand.
With outdoor tile, interior designers can get creative with different styles, sizes, and colors. Project scope and size are somewhat irrelecant as tile promises to enhance even the smallest of spaces. There’s truly a golden opportunity to maximize outdoor living spaces when using tile. Here are some examples of how outdoor tile can be used to spruce up a space:
Of all the reasons to customize outdoor spaces with tile, for us it comes down to durability. Having the ability to enjoy a beautiful, outdoor space for years to come is the ultimate goal. And, tile is really the only way to achieve it.
Let’s explore the details of tile when it comes to tile and outdoor living.
First things first. It’s crucial to know and understand the difference between indoor and outdoor tile products. The main difference between the two is the durability. Outdoor tile can handle the elements (frost, sunlight, rain, slip resistance, mud, etc.) while indoor tile is not designed the same. The good news is, there are a lot of products that are able to be used inside and out. This is a great option for interior designers who want to build a seamless flow from indoor to outdoor living.
