Though nothing beats a wood deck, it’s not the most durable option when you consider how much heat and sun it’s going to get laying poolside year round. A wood-looking tile can give you that traditional deck vibe that survives many a summer without needing repair.

 

 

 

Stone diagonalTraditional Stone
There’s something nice about an actual stone texture to give your feet a little rub as you walk across it. Traditional stone tile can complement any style home or patio and looks especially nice laid diagonally or juxtaposed with high modern furniture and fixtures.

You don’t have to go far to get that feeling of vacationing in a Mexican Villa. Consider adding a Saltillo stone or a saltillo-looking porcelain tile, placed traditionally or on a diagonal. Intercutting the stone tiles with Spanish-
inspired porcelain glazed tile in bright colors gives it a bit of a Caribbean flair. Or, weathered-looking tile intercut with porcelain decorative tiles give that hand-painted, Spanish feel. Ariba ariba!
