We explore a range of different terracotta tiles that are all suitable for use in outdoor areas, each offering its own unique style and charm.
Caring for Terracotta Tiles
Terracotta tiles offer a rich, warm and rustic look in any application, being especially popular for use in outdoor spaces. These timeless tiles have long been a popular choice for external use, making an excellent choice as a paver tile, a patio or verandah tile or as a flooring solution for an alfresco area. As with all materials designed for use in outdoor areas, it is important to keep a few things in mind in order to ensure these tiles are best maintained. Terracotta tiles are porous and as such, will require sealing in order to be best protected against staining. Garden debris or animal droppings should be swiftly swept away from outdoor tiled areas so as not to cause any damage to the tile.
