You Never Thought About Using Tile Like This

Take tile outdoors to elevate a backyard, balcony and more.

We spend so much time focusing on the inside of our homes, that sometimes we overlook our outdoor space. But in the summertime, our patios, backyards and balconies become extensions of our living space and deserve a lot of more our attention. So how can you turn your standard lawn into an outdoor oasis? In their 2017 summer entertaining report, Pinterest found that searches for outdoor tiling are up over 30 percent—which inspired us to see just how everyone's using ceramic to update their outside spaces.
