Tiles: Indoor Outdoor Combination

Blog Top Image

Historically, bringing indoor tiles outdoors was a no-no due to their slipperiness. However, many homeowners want their indoor tile to flow to their outdoor kitchens, lanais, sitting areas, or pool surrounds. The open-concept floor plans created designated living spaces outside and the delineation between the indoors and outdoors becomes blurred as each area merges.


Within the indoor/outdoor transitional space, the comforts that comprise the indoor living area combined with the advantages of the outdoor space. You can enjoy the fresh air, natural surroundings, spacious and outdoor activities without forfeiting the comforts of the indoors. What a great way to enjoy mild weather. However, you can also alter your outdoor space with the addition of fireplaces, covered patios, fans, heated floors, pools, and indoor-outdoor combination tiles.


Transitional living spaces must withstand the elements which mean rain, heavy use, stains, leaves, debris, heat, humidity, sunlight, and even snow/ice. The flooring must be durable, stylish, and strong. Our porcelain tile will meet and exceed your needs.



The porcelain tile forms a mat that is stain, flame, water, scratch, dent, and scuff resistant. It looks fantastic year-round and flows into your home’s interior with each. In addition, it is an economical choice.


Low Maintenance


Don’t let mud or wet floors worry you. Our tiles stain resistance will hold up against bacteria, mildew, and mold. You can easily sweep and clean the tile using water and a broom.
