Patterned tiles are one of the latest ways in which our gardens are getting a revamp. This is according to Homes and Property, which pointed out that there’s been something of a decorating revolution in London’s gardens - something that will no doubt filter out to other parts of the UK as well.
Gone are the days of concrete slabs and plain stone tiles. Homeowners are increasingly looking for more vibrant and exciting outdoor tiles in Hertfordshire and elsewhere.
The news provider explained that tiles with bold patterns are bringing a new dimension to outdoor spaces.
Geometric patterns and vibrant colours are among the most popular ways to add character and personalise gardens and terraces.
Barbara Samitier, a London designer, told the newspaper that this is a logical extension of trends we’re seeing in home decor.
“There is a trend in interior design for pattern and layers. It makes total sense to extend it to courtyards and urban gardens in order to reflect and create a link between indoor and outdoor spaces,” she stated.
Experts advised homeowners to make sure that any tiles they buy for their garden are suitable for outdoor use, and recommended getting them laid by professionals to ensure they’re properly sealed.
If you’re looking for some other ideas on how to revamp your garden without breaking the bank, the suggestions by Ideal Home last month might appeal.
The magazine suggested creating planters out of items you upcycle, such as pots made from plastic drinks bottles and raised beds made from old drawers.
