This Year’s Top Outdoor Tile Choices

Comfortable and stylish outdoor living spaces are essential for the Australian home. Australia – Western Australia especially – is blessed with glorious sunny weather for most of the year. Because of such, many Australian homeowners use the outdoor area as the main space to entertain, enjoy their meals or watch sports. There’s just something incredibly relaxing about sitting on the patio, soaking up the sun and taking in those sunny afternoons.

If you’re looking to improve your outdoor area, the best place to start is with the flooring. The tiles you choose to fill a room completely changes the aesthetics of the interior. Wood, timber and organic colours will create a natural, earthy and warm aesthetic. Black, white or neutral tiles will make your space modern and chic. There are lots of different styles and textures to choose from, it can quickly become overwhelming! Not to worry, we’re here to help.

In this blog, we walk you through our summer tiles collection for 2023 and share with you the best outdoor tiles and swimming pool tiles to give your outdoor space the ‘wow’ factor you’ve been looking for. Let’s begin!

Best Outdoor Tiles For 2023

Tiles are versatile and practical materials, allowing you to install impressive designs not only within the interior of your home but also the exterior! Choosing high-quality outdoor tiles truly adds another level of sophistication to your outdoor space. Find the colour and material that suits your aesthetic, and watch as the outdoor area comes to life, one tile at a time.

Artistic Statements

Interior (and exterior) design is seeing a great focus on creative expression, resulting in more experimental artistic designs throughout spaces. Vibrant colours, unique patterns and colour-blocking are some of the tile trends that are flourishing in 2023.

Experimental designs have really been made possible with high-definition Inkjet technology. Inkjet technology allows for any print, pattern or design to be printed onto the ceramic tile. These patterns can vary from replicating organic materials (like wood and stone) to experimenting more with patterns and brush strokes.

Inkjet technology offers a wide variety of impressive and stylish options for your ceramic tiles. To find the unique design for your project, chat with our team at Ceramic Tile Supplies.

Nature Inspired

As outdoor spaces are surrounded by nature from the home’s garden, pool, sunlight and sky, nature-inspired tiles compliment these natural elements with gorgeous replications of wood, stone, sand or earth elements. These organic designs are an easy way to add impressive beauty to any area and instantly ‘wow’ guests as they walk out to the outdoor space.

There’s a great variety of nature-inspired tiles to choose from too. Styles vary from patterned tiles that mimic the detailing seen in granite, stone-look tiles that replicate impressive rock surfaces as well as other textured designs such as Epika Shell and Mystone Sand.

Timber-look tiles are one of the most popular flooring options for outdoor settings. Offering warmth and charm to an outdoor space whilst also being durable, slip-resistant and low maintenance—it’s no wonder why timber-look tiles are so sought after! Whilst real timber tiles are costly and require more maintenance, timber-look tiles are almost identical in appearance and more affordable too!

International Influences

As travel is being re-introduced into the lives of Australians from the lingering effects of COVID, interest in the international is being reflected in design. Whether it’s European terracotta colours, Spain-inspired patterned tiles or Mexican ceramic pieces—we’re bringing our favourite holiday destinations to our home.

To recreate your favourite holiday destination, install decorative tiles into your outdoor space. Decorative tiles are wildly varying, from solid pink and glossy, to bold yet timeless floral designs, to textured white patterns—there’s the option to recreate just about any and every destination.

Complete the outdoor area with matching accessories, furniture and greenery to recreate the pocket of paradise you have in mind.

The Bigger, The Better

Large-format tiles are increasing in demand, with the large porcelain tiles adding a modern grandeur to outdoor spaces. Sophisticated, classy and striking—these larger tiles are eye-grabbing for outdoor areas and require minimal accessories to fill the room. You will only need a few pieces of furniture and/or plants to complete your outdoor space.

Choose between a variety of sizes ranging from: 500mm x 1000mm, 1000mm x 1000mm, 1000mm x 3000mm and 1440x3200mm, depending on your preferences. Large format tiles do require a bit more expertise to set up, we recommend contacting an experienced tile installer to ensure that the job is done appropriately.

Best Swimming Pool Tiles For 2023

If you’re lucky enough to have a swimming pool in your backyard, you will want to make sure you invest in high-quality and eye-grabbing swimming tiles to do your pool area justice. Consider what tiles you will require for inside the swimming pool as well as around the pool area. Every tile decision you make works together to create a harmonious aesthetic.

Please note, not all tiles can be installed into a swimming pool, they must be low absorption with Polyurethane reactive pre-mounted support that holds each tile in its place. Here at Ceramic Tile Supplies, all of our swimming pool tiles fulfil requirements.

Blue Mosaics

Blue Mosaics are undoubtedly the most popular choice for swimming pool tiles in Perth. With a wide variety of shades to choose from, the rich blue mosaic shines through the water of your swimming pool, adding a subtle richness that’s reminiscent of the ocean.

Blue Mosaics are visually and practically fantastic. Both out of the water on raised walls and on the pool floor, the blue mosaic is captivating and classy. Blue Mosaics are perfect for outdoor spaces where the swimming pool is the centrepiece of the area, adding depth to your outdoor space.

Black And White

Another mosaic option is choosing a black and/or white colour scheme. If you already have a colourful and attractive outdoor area, you might want to consider a minimalist tile for the swimming pool in either black or white.

Although black and white mosaics are quieter than blue mosaics, the simple colours can add an element of sophistication that really completes your outdoor area. If you have chosen a creative and experimental outdoor design, choosing black or white works as a tasteful finishing touch.
