Creating your dream garden is never an easy task. There are many elements to consider, including plants, outdoor tiles, lighting and furniture — all while considering the space you have available, and of course, the budget.
Whether you’re looking for outdoor tiles to finish off your garden, or need a set of tiles that are capable of transforming your business premises’ outdoor spaces, rest assured we have something for you at our tile showroom in Preston!
In this blog, we’ll explore our top five garden ideas which can help you to transform your outdoor living space.
1. Beautiful Paving and Walkways
Choosing high-quality paving gives you robust design features and will add character to your garden. Paving is becoming increasingly popular due to its long-lasting and low maintenance properties.
By arranging your tiles in patterns, you can create a truly stunning and rustic effect. Our stone effect outdoor tiles give you simple aesthetics and unrivalled durability.
Coordinating your flowers and plants with the colour or palette of your paving stones is a great way to reflect your personality and tie various elements of your garden and home together. Our porcelain outdoor tiles are a great choice due to the variety of colours and finishes available.
2. Designated Dining and Breakout Areas
Our extra-large tiles are ideal for dining and spacious breakout areas. Due to their large size, they can be used as a complete floor or divided with gravel or pebbles.
Our extensive range of outdoor tiles are an excellent option for dining and BBQ areas because of their non-slip properties — making them suitable for spills, patio furniture, pets and children.
Extra-large tiles are always a favourable choice if you want to make your small garden look more prominent. They create the illusion of space due to their genuine longevity and fewer connecting lines.
Remove the time and effort of pressure washing your old worn tiles and choose something from our outdoor porcelain tiles range. Porcelain tiles are renowned for their tough resistance to water absorption, scratches and staining, making them low maintenance and hardwearing.
3. Lighting and Ornamental Features
Lighting is a key factor in creating an atmosphere in your garden. From fire pits to solar lights, fairy lights and even candles, you can really set the mood with lighting.
Living walls are becoming increasingly popular too, especially for small gardens, as they offer a space-saving alternative to planting. You can also use your garden walls or trellis to build your very own living wall — this will add a vertical aspect to your garden.
By incorporating mirrors, water features and fashionable decor, you can create unique talking points that your friends and family will love.
4. Introduce Levels and Shapes
Flat gardens are practical for maintenance reasons but levelled gardens that incorporate shapes and textures are becoming much more desirable.
There are many ways to add levels to your garden, including adding a lower or higher level patio area, raising your flower beds, or building a water feature.
Our stone effect outdoor tiles offer durability to your patio area and are longer-lasting than standard decking. Another benefit of creating a levelled area with our tiles is that they come with anti-slip properties, significantly reducing the risk of injury.
5. Intricate Plant and Tree Design
Some of the most beautiful gardens are created from building around plant or tree structures.
We love greenery and would always recommend picking all-year-round plant varieties so that you can enjoy your garden, whatever the weather. Early summer bulbs and potted bamboo are perfect for getting a head start on your gardening.
Trees can benefit your garden significantly and will look great when surrounded by our extra large tiles. Planting mature trees will offer you shade and privacy, as well as an opportunity to grow fruit or attract nature.
Our Earth tiles are desirable for those looking to create a ‘jungle garden’. The natural colour of the tiles compliments the beautiful green and organic colours from trees and flowers.
