Six Inspiring Ideas for Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor spaces mean fun, laughter, barbecues, picnics, family and friends are on tap. Functional, cozy and gorgeous—outdoor settings can reflect the latest design trends while adding elegance to home décor. Whether you’re redesigning a tiny balcony, patio or a large garden area, countless styles, colors and design options await you.

Water Features

The outdoor deck pictured here is PAR-KER’s Oxford Antracita. Tiles in the PAR-KER series recreate the look of hardwood beautifully. Not only is it a gorgeous wood-look tile for outdoor spaces—it’s also ideal for using around water features like hot tubs, pools or saunas due to its anti-slip surface. Create a lovely, unique pattern by alternating the placement of the tiles.

Tropical Paradise

Are you hoping to create a tropical paradise? Add nature-inspired furniture like a hammock and divan and imagine you’re in the Mediterranean. Create natural flooring for this space with Seedwood’s Tanzania Natural. Seedwood tiles are durable, water-resistant and anti-slip also comes in various colors including Nut, Graphite, Almond and Wine; many with varying patterns.

Complementing Color

Do you love color?  Consider a neutral colored tile like PAR-KER Ascot Olivo Anti-slip for its seamless ability to bring outdoor design elements together. Ascot Olivo blends effortlessly with colorful furniture, flowering plants, sculptures and accessories. Linger outdoors on crisp evenings as you gather around a toasty fire bowl or gas fireplace. Lighter-colored tiles are ideal for areas with low light while darker tiles tend to be best in areas with a lot of light.

Outdoor Breakfast Nook

What could be more beautiful than an intimate breakfast nook outdoors? Bedeck the patio with West Brown Antislip in 24”x24” sections. Add French-style café chairs, a glass table and lounge furniture and your updated patio will blend in beautifully with the natural environment. For a lighter color variation, consider West Grey.

Rustic Design

Outdoor spaces will shine whether you mis-and-match design elements or choose similar textures and styles. If you’re after a rustic-inspired outdoor area, consider tiles with a realistic texture like Riven Brown Antislip. It’s extremely durable and excellent for high-traffic areas. In fact, anti-slip tiles are a must for outdoor settings. This lovely photo also features Arcan Coren Nature wall tiles to complete the rustic look.

Outdoor Living Rooms

Bring the indoors outdoors and create a cozy living room. Produce a seamless flow from the inside of the house to the outside by using the same tiles to create the illusion of a larger living and entertainment area. Take a look at Newport Natural and notice its unique texture. The square tile with its natural indentations bring a nice, gentle touch to outside spaces. Newport Gray and Newport Natural might appeal to you if you prefer darker flooring.
