Outdoor Tiles

This year, outdoor spaces have begun to mean a lot more to us than ever before.

Our backyards, balconies, and front yards have become a safe space where we can escape our work-from-home offices, invite our friends and family over at a safe distance, and are soon to become our only option for that all-inclusive you've been dreaming of. 🏖

Looking to level up your outdoor space? Before you can start setting up that new patio furniture, fire pit, or pool, you need to get your flooring laid perfectly!

Why Tile?

Tiles make for the perfect surface for outdoor spaces like your deck, patio, or pool deck as they’re durable, easy to maintain, and provide added design, colour and textures to your space.

So what’s the different between indoor and outdoor tile?

The main difference: the design (or finish) and durability!

Durability:

Outdoor tiles are much more durable than majority of tiles you would find inside a home. They can withstand rain, snow, sleet and everything in between while also holding up against long days of direct sunlight.

Design:

When selecting outdoor tiles, we often look for materials that offer more texture and slip-resistance. This comes in natural looking materials, like stone, slate, limestone, travertine, and granite tiles.

While polished tiles are great to look at, when wet, they become very dangerous. So always think about where you are placing these tiles!

 

Questions to ask before choosing your outdoor tile!

1. What colour tiles should you choose?

This question can be answered by simply thinking about how much light you get in your outdoor space. If your space is shady, dark tiles can make it appear gloomy. Do you get a lot of sunlight? Light tiles can make your space appear washed out.

Based on the amount of sunlight you get, you will want to adjust the colour of your tile to match! We love a combination of variety of neutral colours so they never clash your decor!

2. What is the weather (and precipitation) like in your area?

If you live - like most of us - in a climate that experiences all 4 seasons - and the weather that comes with them - you will need to make sure you consider tiles that can withstand all of elements.

Good news: most do! Natural and certain styles of Porcelain tiles are typically the most weather resistant.

3. Where are you placing the tiles?

If you are placing these tiles around your pool or on stairs, you will want to avoid polished stone tiles which, while chic and easy to care for, get extremely slippery when wet.

In this case, your best bet would be more natural stone or textured porcelain tiles.

Natural stone is the overall term used to describe slate, limestone, travertine, and granite tiles. These materials are very popular because they fit in perfectly to any of your outdoor environments. However, these can be pricier than your other outdoor tile options.

Porcelain outdoor tiles are another great option! They are more cost-effective and today, come in nearly every design you can imagine. Porcelain tile is made of a clay-base, they are non-porous, fade-resistant, and very durable.

No, you can always use a smaller grout size clip and use our Tile Crosses to make up the difference. By using this trick you can reuse more of your material and it offers the installer greater flexibility.
This may be because the breaking off of the clips is not done parallel to the grout line. One should always strike the sides of the clips with a rubber mallet or safety shoes parallel to the grout line. Another possibility is the the tile work was left to dry with excess adhesive on the tile edges. This can be avoided by cleaning the edges with a putty knife when the adhesive is still fresh.
It is important to pay attention to the direction that one is placing the wedges. For best results, insert the red wedge towards the already installed tiles.
