Tiles remain the number one choice for upgrading your patio as they’re beautiful, durable and easy to maintain.
‘Inkjet printed tiles are the latest trend with these tiles imitating weathered wood, layered concrete and rustic sandstone. They address the earth-inspired theme and speak to the trend of combining neutral palettes such as wood, concrete and stone with luxurious finishes,’ says Richard Nuss, marketing manager for Johnson Tiles.
Here are some tips that you can consider when selecting tiles for your patio:
• Think of the architectural and design style of your home. The area to be tiled needs to complement the interior and exterior of the house.
• Remember to look at the safety aspect and the durability of your tiles.The most suitable tiles to use outdoors are textured tiles as they provide grip when they get wet.
• Inkjet tiles are perfect for home owners who prefer a natural look, but have a tight budget to renovate with. These tiles are beautiful, cost-effective, durable and easy to maintain.
Johnson Tiles recently added Sabi Sandstone and Moyo to its Fusion range of inkjet tiles. “The natural sandstone design of the Sabi Sandstone range brings a slice of the South African landscape to your home and this range is suitable for indoor and outdoor floors and walls,” says Nuss.
The Moyo range has an impressive matt weathered and variable cement appearance. ‘The tile face features comforting hues and complements simple design and quiet luxury,’ he says.
Jazz up your outdoor floors with exquisite inkjet tiles that imitate cement, wood and even stone designs with none of the preparation such as sanding and sealing often associated with using these materials.
As a local supplier, Johnson Tiles delivers affordable and fashionable tiles that South Africans can trust. The tiles are available from Tile Africa and independent tile retailers nationwide, in a range of designs, sizes and finishes.
