Stone tiles are a perfect way of transforming the look of your outdoor space. These tiles are considered for outdoors because of their long-lasting life, strength, weather resistance, and low maintenance. All you need to do is choose the right colour and design to complement the surroundings and your taste. With more time to renovate and more time to spend at home, redesigning outdoor spaces has been a raging thing recently.
Here is a list of the best outdoor stone tiles in trend based on their applications:
Pool coping tiles and pool tiles
Pool surrounds are slippery and prone to moisture damage. For such areas you must choose slip-resistant tiles which have natural footing. Do check their slip rating while buying. Unfilled Travertine tiles and honed finish Sandstone tiles are highly recommended for pool areas owing to their functionalities. Additionally, the soft colours of these tiles give a beautiful contrast to the blue waters and a sense of calm. Travertine tiles absorb the coolness of earth beneath and do not heat up in direct sun. Travertine is hence quite much in trend.
Porcelain with its strength and density is an extremely popular alternative for concrete and wood. Porcelain tiles are highly resistant to water and heat. Your patio gets a new lease of life with its bold colours and textured appearance. Limestone tile is another popular stone option that infuses a breath of fresh air with its soft colour and visual continuity. It is low maintenance and seamlessly connects outdoors with indoors. Limestone tiles remain cool as compared to other natural stones by absorbing the coolness of Earth beneath. This makes them even more desirable.
Tiles for alfresco or outdoor kitchen
Outdoor spaces like kitchen or alfresco are naturally exposed to wear and tear and heat. In such cases, Granite and Bluestone tiles are the most recommended tiles for their unbelievable durability, scratch resistance, and fade resistance. Hosting barbeque parties becomes a lot easier when you have these resilient tiles installed on your property. If installed properly and sealed, Granite and Bluestone tiles become low maintenance. You would never fret about the barbeque heat or moving heavy furniture around.
Garden and landscape tiles
Slate tiles are highly recommended for landscapes and garden areas due to their moisture and fire resistance. They are quite dependable owing to their slip-resistance, immeasurable strength, and smooth finish. They withstand the harshest weather conditions without fading, chipping, or breaking. You can also use Travertine or Limestone tiles outdoors for their soft colours that create a soothing ambience. The lush garden naturally accentuates the muted tones, making them stand out gracefully.
You can pick outdoor tiles based on their applications as mentioned above. In addition, here is an assortment of outdoor tiles based on colours. You can make your choice based on their appearance and the look you want to create in your space.
Here are outdoor stone tiles based on their colours:
Garden and landscape tiles
Don’t shy away from experimenting with dark tiles for your outdoor areas. The dark colours add sophistication and intensity to the spaces they are installed in. Bold hues are trending because they get instant attention with their pop. Additionally damages or dust build-up are not much visible on darker tiles. We’d suggest Carbon Black Granite, Midnight Black Slate in this category of bold tiles.
Light coloured tiles
If you like to keep it simple and have a taste for minimalism, light-coloured tiles are for you. Tiles in this colour category include white, off-white, and cream shades that make outdoor space look brighter and bigger. Mostly people prefer these shades for their neatness and elegance. In this soft colour category, we recommend Indiana White Limestone, and Himalayan Sandstone honed.
Tiles in medium colour tones
This is for those who like to keep a balance between too-bold and too-subtle. Medium tone tiles have greyish or soft beige colours. The muted shades create a striking contrast against every background and fixture. Our recommendations for such tiles are Classic Travertine, Unfilled and Tumbled, and Argento Marble.
