Create Enchanting Garden
Room Designs with Tile!

Garden room designs or "outdoor rooms," as they are commonly called, have surged in popularity in recent years as more and more homeowners find ways to squeeze extra living space from their property.  Rather than trying to live in a construction zone and deal with the hassles of interior remodeling, many owners simply opt to expand their living area to the out-of-doors.

Depending upon available space and budget, an outdoor room can be anything from a small deck to an expansive patio or terrace with outdoor kitchen, fireplace and swim- ming pool.    However, regardless of spatial or budgetary considerations, there is a multitude of tile options for every project -- large or small!

The versatility of outdoor tile makes it ideal for decks, patios and porches, as well as fireplaces, fountains and pools.  Its durability as a surface covering has endured the test of time.  Its beauty is timeless.
