Spring is the most popular time of the year for redesigning your garden as the weather begins to brighten up and we get ready for summer. Of course, we all want our outdoor spaces to be perfect for when summer is here so we can relax in a garden we enjoy spending time in.
Nothing beats welcoming family and friends around for a barbeque in the sun, so it’s essential to get your space to a place where you’re happy to show it off.
Tiles are a fantastic choice for your garden as they are low maintenance, easy to implement, and look stunning! We’re here to give you some garden tile inspiration and explain how the experts at our tile showroom in Preston can help you create the garden of your dreams. We are also thrilled to offer you your ideal garden at some of our lowest ever prices due to our current special offers on our outdoor tiles – there has never been a better time to transform your garden. Our range of garden outdoor tiles is growing.
Why Are Tiles the Best Choice for Your Garden?
Of course, we believe tiles to be the best choice for your garden, but why? Let’s take a look:
- Durability. Compared to other outdoor flooring options, tiles come on top for durability and longevity. No need to worry about rotting decking when you can choose wood effect outdoor tiles. Garden tiles can last longer than twenty years when maintained properly. And yes, you can use porcelain tile outside.
- An extensive list of options. Every neighbour on your street could have outdoor tiles, yet each garden could look entirely different. The possibilities are endless, so whether you’re looking for stone look outdoor tiles, marble effect outdoor tiles, or something else, you’re guaranteed to find some that suit your garden and personal style.
- Safe. Thanks to the nature of Great Britain’s climate, the rain can make our gardens an unpleasant place to be, but once the skies are clear and the moss begins to grow, the slippiness can make the floor dangerous to walk on. Our anti-slip outdoor floor tiles are the best choice for those wanting to avoid the danger of slippy moss.
- Low maintenance. As mentioned, tiles can last around 20 years and beyond, and to get the maximum lifetime out of them, you must keep your tiles well maintained. Luckily for you, this doesn’t take much work. Simply mop semi-regularly and use tile cleaner once per year, and that is all!
Combine Indoor and Outdoor Living
In recent years, a garden trend we have seen lots of is the combination of indoor and outdoor living, and tiles help you make this style effortless. Here at Roccia, we have plenty of tiles that can be implemented in both interior and exterior settings, so you can integrate both spaces and create an open plan space ideal for entertaining this summer.
To successfully link both spaces, choose the same, large format floor tiles, which will help create the illusion of more space and allow you to seemingly transition from indoors to outdoors when your doors are open.
Large format outdoor tiles are often chosen for their ability to expand a space, particularly a garden, as they trick the eye with their few grout lines. In addition, less division offers a clear view without distractions, making them incredibly popular for smaller gardens.
Sectioning Your Garden
Tiles are a fantastic idea for those wanting to create sections in their garden for different uses. For example, if you have children, you may wish to have a grassy area for them to play on and a tiled ‘adults only’ space. The divide will provide your children with their own space and allow you to have an area where you can wind down and keep a watch over them while they play.
Similarly, you may wish to use two or more different tile designs to help section your garden. If grass isn’t an option, tiles are a great choice. Whether you choose two different styles, sizes, colours, or materials, sectioning your garden with contrasting tiles allows you to separate areas of your outdoor space for various functions.
Pave the Way
Whilst tiles are a popular choice due to their look and the sleek glamour they can bring to a garden; many choose them for their functionality. Get from A to B without getting your slippers covered in grass and mud by opting for a path created with tiles.
Similarly, if you have flower beds around your garden, creating a perimeter path makes walking around to water your plants simple.
When it comes to deciding on your outdoor tiles, we can help. Our tile experts have decades of experience in the industry and know just how to provide you with the garden of your dreams for a low price due to our special offers on outdoor tiles.
