Outdoor & Balcony
Laying tiles in outdoor areas can be an excellent idea. Tiles can serve a decorative function, or you can create the illusion of bigger space with them. Adding a tiled walkway or footpath through a garden can give it a classier feel, or keep people from stepping all over your flowerbeds.
By using the same design or pattern on the outside as on the inside, you can create the illusion of a larger room. This is an excellent way to expand a bedroom into a balcony area, for instance.
However, you might not realise that there are nuances to tile selection you should keep in mind. Outdoor environments and balconies pose unique challenges to tiling.
Aspect ratio can be a problem. Not everyone realises that the average outdoor porcelain tile is larger than the indoor variety. Since they’re also thicker, it adds a little extra challenge to design if you’re not prepared.
Our professionals also keep in mind that outdoor tiles often need spacers. These are used to keep the joints proportional, along with reducing movement during the installation process.
Experience is essential if you need to cut the tiles! What most people neglect is the fact that if the space for the balcony or outdoor area is small, the tiles may be too big. At some point, some of them will need to be cut – a difficult prospect if you’re not sure what you’re doing.
Because of these challenges, it serves you better to get professionals like A&S handling the tile installation.
