Everything you need to know about outdoor tiles

Publish date: 19th August 2019

Are you dreaming of a backyard or front garden renovation? Providing a whole new world of possibility, outdoor tiles could be the perfect solution for you. Available in a range of sizes, colours and textures there are options to suit any style.

To help you choose the perfect outdoor tile for your space, we’ve answered some of our most commonly asked questions below to help with your selection process.

What outdoor tiles would you recommend?

Depending on what you’re looking to achieve, you can choose from our 20mm outdoor tile ranges – designed specifically for outdoor areas. Any of these are perfect for outdoor use, and really, the tile name is entirely dependent on the preference of the supplier. They essentially all mean the same thing!

Most of our regular porcelain tiles can also be used both indoors and outdoors.

Are outdoor tiles suitable for wet environments?

Living in Ireland, you are probably wondering if outdoor tiles are suitable for wet environments. The answer is yes. However, we would recommend certain tiles more than others due to their technical rating. If you’d like some help finding the best outdoor tiles, it’s always best to pop into your nearest store. Our expert staff will be on hand to assist you in selecting the most suitable tile for your outdoor space, taking into consideration your design, the area being tiled and any technical information that’s relevant to your project.

Will outdoor elements affect my outdoor tiles?

No, the natural elements would not change the aesthetic or structural integrity of your tile. And luckily, if they do need freshening up, the tiles in our outdoor range are very easy to clean.

Does btw have an outdoor tile to suit my style?

Of course! We source products from the best suppliers around the world and, as a result, we can offer our customers a great range to suit all styles and budgets.

If you’re looking to achieve a traditional look, our Emilia, Aurelia and Valeria outdoor tile ranges could be perfect for you.
