With warmer weather coming our way, we want to bask in the sun, enjoy fresh air, and have some family fun outdoors. A lot of us are planning to update our back patios, reconnect with nature and create a space of tranquility, but also keep the modern design look consistent.
Certainly, not every material will have the proper qualities for outdoor use. For example, if you are remodeling your pool area or hot tub area, you are looking for anti-slip tiles that can also sustain sunlight and not get too hot in our Florida sun! Sticking with light colors can help you achieve this, but it also will keep your patio looking modern. Some of the products we could recommend are Anthology by Arizona Tile and Sculpture by Emser Tile.
Another great trend we continue to see in outdoor design is the geometric tile, like this one by Emser Tile or this Omni Glazed Mosaic tile. They offer a wide range of unique patterns, which can be used on the wall or floor. You may consider creating a focal point, like an outdoor fireplace, or a horizontal half wall with the contrasting view of the backyard or pool.
To keep a more seamless transition from indoor space to outdoor patio or deck, authentic hardwood look makes the perfect choice. What brings more tranquility, than a natural wood color? See these options for the best glazed porcelain tile from Daltile that is still slip-resistant and is easy to keep clean.
Porcelain is very durable and resistant to weathering. It’s easy to clean and very hygienic due to its low porosity. It’s perfect for high traffic areas, outdoors, and intense sunlight. With this kind of peace of mind, you can start getting creative and design the outdoor space of your dreams!
