Tiling is a popular option for both kitchens and conservatories that often lead into the outdoor space. And this is where using continuous tiling between the outdoor and indoor space can be very effective. But what should you consider about this tiling option? Well, as Preston’s leading tiling professionals here at Tiles 2 Go, we provide a variety of tiles for a range of projects, including outdoor tiling. And this is our guide to everything you should know about continuous tiling for indoor and outdoor spaces.
What are the considerations when using continuous tiling for indoor and outdoor spaces?
Continuous tiling means that the tiles you use inside, near the exit to the garden or outdoor space, are continued outside to create a tiled patio area or seating area, or even a walkway. This can be a great way to create a stunning visual design feature in your property, and can really help to join the outside area, with the inside. Tiles are also a very practical option for both indoor and outdoor spaces, but there are some things to consider. These include:
- The type of tiles- for floor tiles inside and out you should choose a porcelain tile option. These are robust and weatherproof, and porcelain does not absorb water so will not freeze and crack in the winter. They are also stronger and more durable than other tiling types, so you can be sure that these will withstand the required footfall.
- The tiling colours- for continuous floor tiling outside and in, you will need to consider a colour scheme that will best suit your interior design style and the outdoor space itself. Natural colours, textures and effects can be a very good choice as this emphasises the connection to the outdoor space and really helps to bring the outside in.
- The tiling size- large format square tiles can be one of the most effective options for continuous tiling outdoor and in. These large format tiles have very small joints between tiles, so that the whole area looks like natural stone blocks instead of tiling. However, rectangular wooden effect tiling can be a good option too, creating the effect of continuous hardwood flooring.
