Patio Makeover with Tile
Have you glared at your ugly concrete patio for so long that it almost looks charming? If that’s not working for you, why not makeover your patio with tile? Porcelain tile is a beautiful outdoor option with numerous color choices and styles for every personality and taste (and it's slip resistant!). If you’re looking for a more rustic option, there’s the always elegant rough-cut natural stone or wood-look porcelain tiles; modern and clean – try porcelain that looks like slate.
With a patio makeover, there are several important choices to make and the designers at St. Louis Tile can help you navigate your way. For instance, choosing the right kind of tile for an outdoor makeover, including the right mortar and grout, will create a splendid outcome for your outdoor living area that will keep your guests oohing and aahing.
St. Louis Tile Tip: Consider tiled walkways, too. Expand your outdoor area so that it’s just as beautiful as your indoor space. Think of your entire yard as an outdoor canvas. Paint it with tile!
If you’re considering a BBQ makeover, think stacked stone or cobblestones. This stone is very popular for outdoor makeovers because it’s lightweight – comprised of just the stone veneer – plus it’s easier to install than traditional stone and less costly. Handy DIYers may choose to tackle this BBQ makeover challenge themselves. Less handy DIYers should stick with expert installation. We have a list of reputable installers that we can recommend if you don’t have one already.
Outdoor Kitchen Makeover
Say “yes!” to an outdoor kitchen tile makeover. Enjoy spending more time outside and expand your living area at the same time. Life is meant to be enjoyed with family and friends. Why not create a stunning tile makeover for your outdoor kitchen and dining area? Create a tranquil or fun-filled space that you’ll want to spend more time in. Let the kids drag you back inside for a change.
Firepit Tile for Outdoor Gatherings
Imagine a cozy fire around a breathtaking firepit. Tiling it will add personality to every inch of your outdoor living space. Depending on the shape of your firepit, you could go with either stacked stone tiles or colorful mosaics. Think Italy, France, and Mexico – styles that take you away!
When it comes to mosaics, you can select from bold or muted colors. You could also create a simple design out of flowers, bees, butterflies, or simple geometric shapes. For you DIYers, tile nippers, safety gloves and glasses, and a simple design will get you started. Then again, many mosaics are so beautiful on their own that it’s best to let them speak for themselves. Whether you choose stacked stone or mosaics, you’ll have a sure winner around your firepit.
