Why choose outdoor tiles?

Our outdoor tiles come in three different effects: wood, concrete, stone – so you’ll be able to find a style to suit you, plus the added bonuses that come with it. Outdoor tiles have been designed to be:

  • Frost resistant: they don’t absorb water so if the temperature drops to below freezing, you won’t have to worry about the tile cracking.
  • Stain-proof: they have no little holes that dirt can get into to affect the overall look of them. They’ll just need to be cleaned with warm soapy water and occasionally swept to keep them in top form
  • Slip-resistant: The more textured and matt your outdoor tiles, the more slip-resistant they’ll be.
  • Fade & scratch resistant: Because of how they’re made, fired in a kiln at over 1200 degrees, they’re incredibly hardwearing. This makes them resistant to scratching and because of this they’re also resistant to UV facing. Keeping the tiles colour looking freshly laid for years to come.

If all of those benefits aren’t enough, you’ll even be able to create a seamless effect. Using the same style of tile inside your home and then extending it out into your garden, this creates a modern seamless finish in your home. It’s ideal for those barbecue evenings in the sun, as you can keep the doors open and make your patio an extension of your home.
