Inside to outside tiling is a great way to connect your home to the great outdoors. A common and subtle trick used by interior designers that you may have missed on Grand Designs or any other similar show, this visual trick has many advantages. Whilst this technique can add a fresh and modern look to your home it is also important to bear in mind a few things in order to make sure you pull off the inside to outside style successfully. This blog will discuss what the style can do for your home and a few pointers to remember when trying this style in your home.
Make your rooms look bigger. When you design your home with different flooring in each room, you immediately make space look smaller. As the eye looks from one style of flooring to the other, each break in style subconsciously signals the end of one room and the start of another. By using one style of flooring throughout, you create a connection between inside and outside, beautifully bridging the gap between urban modern living and the harmony and peace of nature.
Bringing the outside in can work to create a stunning and open room, extending the visual space. But in order to do this successfully, it is important to select the right tiles. Some tiles can be used indoors and outdoors, whereas some are only suitable for outdoors and others only suitable for indoors. With the traditional wet British weather, it is most important that outdoor tiles are slip-resistant and durable. At Tile & Stone Gallery, we have a number of tiles that are perfect for seamlessly joining your indoor and outdoor living areas to create one single living space that ensures you can truly enjoy the best of both worlds in your home.
