Patio Perfection

Your patio is more than just an outdoor space; it's an extension of your home, a place where you can unwind, entertain guests, and embrace the beauty of the outdoors.

If you're looking to revamp your patio,  consider exploring innovative ideas that not only enhance the aesthetics but also improve functionality. In this blog post, we'll delve into the world of creative patio ideas, focusing on correct grip tile surfaces and safe decorative options such as the trending hydraulic look.


Grip Tile Surfaces for Safety and Style

One of the primary concerns when designing outdoor flooring is ensuring the safety of its users. Specialised grip tile surfaces provide a slip-resistant foundation and are designed with textures that enhance traction, making them ideal for areas prone to moisture, such as around swimming pools or in regions with frequent rain.

Grip tiles come in neutral tones for a contemporary look to vibrant hues that infuse energy into your outdoor space. The versatility of range options today allows you to create visually appealing patterns and designs while ensuring the safety of your family and guests.


Decorative Tiles for a Touch of Elegance

Transform your patio into a work of art by incorporating decorative tiles. These tiles come in a myriad of patterns, colours, and textures, allowing you to customise your outdoor space to suit your personal style. Whether you prefer Mediterranean-inspired, a classic geometric design or contemporary decoratives, patterned tiles can bring a touch of elegance to your patio.

Consider creating a focal point by using decorative tiles for a statement floor or accentuating specific areas, such as the borders or steps. Mixing and matching different tile designs can add an eclectic charm to your patio, making it a unique and visually stunning retreat.


The On-Trend Hydraulic Look


For those who crave a contemporary and industrial vibe, the new hydraulic look ranges are a must-consider option. Inspired by hydraulic cement tiles, this trend blends modern aesthetics with a touch of vintage charm. Think English country retreats to high-end Hamptons homes! A new range just in from Spain, CARINO, is a stunning example and being rated R10 and PEI 4 are suitable for not just internal wet areas but also outdoor patios, decks and swimming pool areas.


Tessellated Magic


Opting for smaller tiles to create intricate patterns is a trend that will never date! This trend works well with both minimalist and eclectic design styles, offering a versatile option for homeowners with diverse tastes.

One of the largest tesselated tile suppliers in the World, TOPCER, has an exclusive relationship with Tile Warehouse and from this has come some of NZ’s largest commercial projects such as the Old Bank Arcade in Wellington. We also distribute across NZ for most residential projects, in particular for patios. Due to the material being a full-bodied porcelain, TOPCER tiles are suitable for the outdoors as well as all wet areas such as bathrooms, kitchens and laundries.


The Love of Neutral


Most commonly, home owners often chose safer options of neutral colours and standard-sized exterior tiles for patios. Sizes of 600x600mm / 800x8000mm in colours of beige, cream and grey are popular and work well. Tile Warehouse has the largest tile range in NZ and with staff trained in design and product technicalities, coming into store and having our team assist you with product selection for your patio and home areas is a great option.


Your patio is a canvas waiting to be transformed into a masterpiece. It’s often the first option to catch attention with eye-candy design. By incorporating grip tile surfaces for safety, decorative tiles for elegance, and the on-trend hydraulic look range for a modern twist, you can create a patio that not only reflects your personal style but also enhances the overall appeal of your outdoor living space.
