Getting your home ready for summer? Although you probably don’t need to do a complete makeover, there are several improvements you could consider to transform your home’s outside spaces into an entertaining-ready summer haven.
The first step is to decide what you would like to achieve: are you looking to bring in an element of fun; do you prefer more functional solutions; or do you want your outdoor spaces to be an attention-grabbing feature?
Now that you’ve decided on what you want to achieve, the team at WOMAG – South Africa’s most reputable supplier of natural stone and porcelain tiles – want to save you hours of searching for inspiration by offering the following top tips to creating a refreshed outdoor look:
If your main objective is to create a fun and relaxed environment while getting your home entertaining-ready, think brighter, lighter and bolder. Options could include outdoor kitchens with unique backsplash designs, a colourful wall feature for the kids’ area in the garden, or carpet-look tile flooring for the patio.
During summer your outdoor spaces become your hosting spaces. Choose tiles that are both practical and beautiful, like the In/Out Technology Homestone Pearl porcelain tile. Since they become non-slip when wet, In/Out Technology Tiles allow you to fully enjoy your indoor, patio and pool areas without having to worry about slips and falls. In/Out Technology Tiles – which WOMAG recently introduced to the South African market – are the ultimate functional solution if you’re seeking a seamless look from your interior to exterior spaces.
If you enjoy making a statement throughout your home about your love for all things creative, then consider products that resemble pieces of natural looking “art” to complete your summer haven. A beautiful outdoor kitchen countertop or eye-catching pool feature will do just that. Make these features stand nature’s test of time and invest in durable materials like natural stone or porcelain.
