Aussies love outdoor entertaining. A big part of Aussie lifestyle is having friends and family over to share food, fun, and laughter (and maybe have some cheeky beverages). If you never got around to renovate your outdoor area, these tips might add value & lifestyle appeal to your property.
Prior to choosing your tiles, you need to estimate how much natural light the area gets during the day (and if you want to make your space look larger) and where your drainage points should be to support rainy weather.
Clean the surface area.
Start with a clean and level surface. Remove any weeds and unwanted matter, trash or rubble from the area that you’ll be tiling. Depending on the size of the area that you’re re-working, you may need help from a professional to clear the area and prepare it for resurfacing.
Pick your style.
If you want a rustic country-inspired outdoor area, brick or stone look tiles may be the perfect fit for you. Stone is also an excellent textured medium for a feature section within your entertainment area, especially around water features or lounge areas.
If you want your outdoor area to reflect a tropical paradise, use timber look tiles to create the effect of timber decking without the maintenance.
A third style option is to use neutral grey or beige tiles that never go out of style. Choosing neutral tiles will allow you to decorate your outdoor area with furniture, plants or other accessories that compliment the decor within your home.
These are the factors you need to consider when tiling your outdoor area.
