Planning your outdoor spaces starts with choosing a style consistent with the rest of your home. This means that the outdoor tiles you use for walkways, poolsides, balconies, and patios shouldn’t stray too much from the ones you chose for your interiors if you want to create seamless, harmonious surfaces.
How to create modern-style outdoor spaces
Modern design is essential and functional. It stands out for its furnishings’ clean, symmetrical lines with minimal decorative details. And the same goes for the exteriors. White and neutral hues like beige, cream, and taupe are the predominant colours, even for outdoor floor and wall tiles.
In this example, Casalgrande Padana suggests its Petra collection. Imperfect veining and delicate earthy and sandy colours blend with quartzite’s elegance, giving life to beautiful, versatile, wear- and frost-resistant tiles.
On the other hand, the walls feature porcelain stoneware tiles from the Brickworks Muretto collection. Brickworks tiles’ delicate shades and the possibility to lay them in different patterns make them a unique furnishing element.
Gardens play an essential role in Japanese culture because they are places where to meditate. A Zen garden typically includes natural elements like sand, gravel, pebbles, red moss, and other trees. It also features walkways that usually lead to a water feature.
A typical Mediterranean home will always have a patio or a terrace with natural wood furniture, exposed beams painted in white, and wicker sofas and chairs. In addition, lanterns, candles, olive trees, oleanders, junipers, and brightly coloured climbing plants help create the perfect convivial space. For the outdoor flooring, we recommend light, anti-slip stone-effect porcelain stoneware tiles that run from the patio to the terrace, creating stunning uninterrupted surfaces.
