Summer is fast approaching and there’s no better time to begin preparing your outdoor space in anticipation of the long evenings and sunny weekends that you’ll (hopefully) soon be enjoying!

You may already be considering the various ways that you can design your outside space and extend your entertaining area – there are many options out there and the choice can feel overwhelming. From alfresco dining to sunbathing, a tiled garden provides a functional and modern solution that will last for years to come.

Here at CTD Tiles, we’re pleased to have just launched a new range of modern outdoor tiles which, at 20mm thick, are super sleek and stylish - so we thought we’d bring you a round up of our favourite exterior styles to help make your decision a little easier.

Creating a Contemporary Outdoor Jungle

Turn your terrace or patio space into a lush, jungle-like setting for the ultimate garden escape. Include tropical plants with dense foliage and colourful flowers, along with potted shrubs to add height and visual interest, for a natural look that will bring joy every time you step outside. If you have a smaller space, like a courtyard, then be bold and paint the walls to add drama and accentuate the plants. For the perfect backdrop to showcase your vibrant new jungle scheme, choose a rustic style tile that will blend as effortlessly as the natural ground would.

Our new Burlington and Minster outdoor tiles combine the characteristics of aged slate with the benefits of modern porcelain, to showcase textural stone appeal. Available in Minster Black, Silver, and Ivory colours, you can use these tiles to create a sophisticated finish that will last through every season. Or our Optimal outdoor tiles, available in soft Beige, Anthracite, and dusky Grafite shades to create a modern and contemporary look to your outdoor space with an appearance reminiscent of polished concrete. To finish the look off, accessorise with hammocks and green soft furnishings for a unified and cohesive contemporary aesthetic.

Extending Your Entertaining Space with a Sleek Transition from Indoors to Outdoors

One interior trend that has been hugely popular for years now is open plan living. Most commonly seen in kitchen/dining spaces, open plan design is often now expanded into entertaining spaces or even the entire downstairs area. More and more often, we are now also seeing people using an open plan approach to break down the boundaries between the inside and the outside, as they look to seamlessly transition between their two spaces – their house and their garden.

British Stone indoor and outdoor tile collection

Our British Stone range is one of our most popular outdoor collections. Ideal for contemporary exteriors, British Stone has a distinctive but varied colour blend, which exudes a beautiful natural stone aesthetic. From soft Beige to dusky Grey and dramatic Antrasit, available in 9mm options for indoors and 20mm options for outdoors, these tiles are sure to set the mood for all-important dinner parties and family gatherings, where people will be moving from inside to outside.

Designing a Luxe Outdoor Look

The hotel luxe look has never been easier to achieve at home and, indeed, there has been a rise in popularity for beautiful, indulgent interior schemes as people choose warm metallics, quality lighting and minimalist designs within their home. Particularly for outside spaces, using tiles can really help to achieve a stunning space that replicates the kind of outdoor areas seen in hotel terraces and pool areas.

An understated collection of stone-effect tiles, our recently launched Veined Stone 20mm outdoor tile range captures the delicate veining and shade variation in natural stone – perfect for creating an elegant and sophisticated outside space. Presented in three distinctive shades – Anthracite, Dark Greige, and Light Grey – the contemporary 9mm tiles can be used to create a cohesive look inside to coordinate with the outside – providing style and complete versatility for the modern home.
