As the weather gets warmer, it is natural to want to make the most of our outdoor spaces, for summer barbecues and gatherings with family and friends. With the great British weather being far from reliable, the trend for inside outside kitchens is growing, making the most of outside areas during the warmer months and filling the kitchen with ample natural light year-round.
Creating a seamless sense of flow is important in such spaces, something that is achievable by choosing the same flooring for the kitchen and the adjoining exterior space. Such continuity helps to draw the eye outside from the kitchen and vice versa and results in a cohesive look.
The flooring chosen must be suitable for all weathers. It should be frost-proof and slip resistant but also UV resistant too, so the colour of the tile won’t fade from direct sunlight. Ceralsio offers all these qualities and more, making it ideally suitable solution for indoor outdoor spaces. And it’s not just suitable for flooring; as it comes in a range of thicknesses there is the opportunity to use the same surface for wall cladding too, both inside and outside and to really make the most of an outside kitchen area.
Choose a nature-inspired tile, like Cardoso Grey for example, to bring the outdoors in and vice versa, while options such as Croma White and Croma Grey are ideal for creating a contemporary indoor outdoor space that runs on a continuous finish. Combining different shapes and even finishes of tile can divide a large paved patio area into several zones depending on what it will be used for, e.g cooking, dining, relaxing.
