Design Trends: 7 Outdoor Patio Tile Design Ideas You'll Love

By Lindsey |

April 22 is Earth Day and it is just right around the corner!  Celebrated everywhere, Earth Day is the largest civic event in the world with over a billion people participating! It's a good time to think about broadening support of environmental programs, rekindling public commitment and building community support around all things Green.  At Fireclay Tile, we are committed to a healthy sustainable environment on a daily basis. We incorporate as much recycled material as possible into our products while improving quality and durability at the same time. Even though for us, everyday is Earth Day, April 22 is a great time to celebrate progress, reflect, and ask,"What more can I do?"

In celebration of Earth Day we've put together our favorite outdoor tile patios and living designs ideas, and how you can recreate them with Fireclay.

1.) Warm Neutrals

Inspired by the contrast between mountain and sky, our 6" Triangle swimming pool tiles complement The Joshua Tree House's desert landscape.

2. ) Vertical Color

A feature wall created from orange and yellow outdoor non-slip patio tiles supplies a cool colorful look all year round. The organized vertical stripes generate a pleasing, cohesive, composition.

4.) Colorful Outdoor Shower

Nestled in the western jungles of Nosara, Costa Rica, The Nomadic Hotel's wayfaring visitors are welcomed by a chic, open-air lobby. More fade-resistant than cement tile, The Nomadic's outdoor brick shower offers a durable design solution for Costa Rica's tropical climate.
