Stoneware Tumby Grey Indoor and Outdoor Pavers

Choosing the right tiles for your home is a big decision! Whether you’re updating your indoor flooring or creating a new look for your outdoor areas, it’s important to know the differences between indoor tiles and outdoor tiles. At APC, we help step you through the features and benefits of both types and discuss how using them together can create a beautiful, cohesive look that seamlessly connects your indoor and outdoor spaces.

Features and benefits of indoor tiles

  1. Lots of Choices: Indoor tiles come in many designs, patterns and colours so you can find the perfect match for your taste and style. From sleek Stoneware tiles to luxurious marble tiles, there’s something for everyone.
  2. Built to Last: Indoor tiles are made to withstand regular use and foot traffic. They’re tough enough to resist scratches, stains and moisture which means they’ll stay beautiful for a long time with minimal effort.
  3. Different Materials: You’ll find indoor tiles made from various materials like Stoneware, Travertine, Natural stone, and Marble. Each material has its own unique qualities, so you can choose based on your preferences and what works best for your space.
  4. Easy to Keep Clean: Indoor tiles have a smoother, easier to clean surface. A regular sweep and occasional mopping will keep them looking their best.

features and benefits of outdoor tiles

  1. Weather Tough: Outdoor tiles are designed to handle all kinds of weather. Extreme temperatures, rain and sunlight without fading, cracking or warping. That means they’ll stay looking great for a long time, no matter the weather.
  2. Safety First: Safety is important outdoors, so outdoor tiles often have textured surfaces or special coatings that give you better grip. That way, you can enjoy your outdoor spaces without worrying about slips and falls, especially when things get wet.
  3. Low Maintenance: Outdoor tiles are built to be low maintenance. They can resist stains, mold and mildew, which can be common problems outdoors. Just a regular sweep or rinse with water is usually enough to keep them clean and tidy.

creating a beautiful connection

By using complementary tiles indoors and outdoors, you can create a seamless connection between your living spaces. When your outdoor areas become an extension of your home, having a consistent tile style can make everything look and feel cohesive. For example, using Stoneware tiles indoors and extending them to your outdoor patio or alfresco can create a lovely, unified look that ties everything together.

Remember to consider the materials and finishes that work best for both indoor and outdoor use. Some materials, like natural stone tiles, may require extra care when used outdoors. It’s always a good idea to consult with our APC professional staff to make sure you choose the right tiles for your specific needs and preferences.

Knowing the differences between indoor tiles and outdoor tiles is key to creating beautiful and functional living spaces. Indoor tiles offer plenty of choices, durability, and versatility, while outdoor tiles are weather-resistant and designed with safety in mind. By using them together, you can achieve a cohesive look that connects your indoor and outdoor areas seamlessly.
