Miami, FL, July 2017 – Lazy summer days are the perfect time for outdoor lounging and relaxation. Looking to add some style to your personal oasis? Spanish ceramic tile can help fine-tune residential exterior spaces and act as the perfect complement to outdoor designs.
Tile of Spain, the international brand representing 125 ceramic tile manufacturers belonging to the Spanish Ceramic Tile Manufacturers’ Association (ASCER), offers an infinite number of design possibilities that allow designers and consumers to choose between multiple models, sizes, colors and textures of tile to personalize outdoor spaces both practically and aesthetically.
The tonality of the ceramic tiles is an indispensable element when it comes to transferring distinct personality to an outdoor patio or terrace. White scale and warm tones put the space in tune with nature, facilitating the relationship between the home and the environment. Combinations of gray shades, such as Kenzo Collection from Unicer or Dolomite Collection from Terracota Pavimento de Gres, add a contemporary and sophisticated touch.
One of the latest trends in patio and terrace design is to blur the border between the interior and exterior space of the home by using the same material inside and outside. Collections of tile inspired by exotic woods, like Exagres Natura Collection, highlight this effect with all the beauty of natural wood but with the durability and strength of tile.
Outdoor ceramics are highly versatile and can be adapted to any environment, such as outdoor porches or dining rooms, and offer many alternatives according to tastes and preferences. The gray toned Mustang collection from Rocersa is an excellent example of such indoor or outdoor versatility.
Ceramic tiles can serve as allies when reforming or rehabilitating the porch of a home. The shape, size and installation technique, along with the style of the material, are key factors when integrating the space in the set of landscape.
Ceramic trends inspired by nature reinterpret the personality and elegance of outdoor spaces with a contemporary style thanks to the diversification of natural color tones from Spanish tile manufacturers, such as the Stromboli series from Ceramica Mayor.
