The Tile Shop offers porcelain, slate, granite and quartzite floor tile that will work in tandem with any outdoor landscaping to create a beautiful, organic look. Go for an authentic, rustic feel with your exterior flooring by installing wood-look or natural stone tile. Stone Tiles are an excellent surface for outdoor areas such as decks and patios, as they’re durable, easy to maintain, and more stable and permanent than ceramic tiles. There are many different types of outdoor stone tiles, but you’ll find them all stylish and strong enough to last in outdoor environments. Learning more about some of the common outdoor stone tile options will help you select the best surfacing material for your deck or patio.
Granite tiles are the hardest natural stone tiles, so you’ll find them very durable and resilient to the elements. It is one of the best outdoor tile options if you are looking for natural stone. Consider granite if you live in a part of the country that experiences significant weather shifts from season to season. Granite tiles are also available in a range of colours, from striking white to moody, mysterious black.
Marble is slightly less hard and more porous, so it needs sealing to help it withstand foot traffic and the weather. Its unique, veined finish gives it a sophisticated look many homeowners love. You’ll find marble tiles in many different colours, from white to black. Smooth polished marble is chic, but slip-resistant rough marble tiles are a smarter choice for outdoor flooring. We recommend a sandblasted finish on all outdoor marble tiles
Slate may be softer than granite and marble, but it’s still tough enough to suit any deck or patio area. Unlike the other natural stone tiles, no two slate tiles are ever identical. Their colours and textures vary, so using slate tiles can create real visual interest. Natural slate tiles have earthy hues such as grey, green, brown, tan, and orange.
Limestone is a softer, more porous stone, so you’ll need to seal these tiles to protect them from stains and weather damage. Some local limestones also shows wear easily, so they’re not recommended for high traffic areas. The stone’s distinctive pits create an unusual texture that limestone lovers can’t resist. Limestone is a generally a pale stone, with colours ranging from white to brown. Polished limestone tiles can get slippery when they’re wet, but there are non-slip tumbled versions for decks near pools and patios that aren’t under cover. WE have searched the world to bring you grey to black limestone tiles. So basically, limestone tiles vary in colour from white, white with fossils to our midnight black.
Travertine is a specific type of limestone made up of mostly calcite. It has a texture and composition that’s similar to regular limestone, but it’s a bit harder and more brittle. Since travertine tiles are also very pitted and porous, like limestone, they also require sealing before they’re used outdoors. Since they’re relatively hard, travertine tiles will show wear extremely well in any outdoor conditions. As we all know TRAVERTINE has withstood the test of time, just look at the Roman Coliseum.
