Advantages of different stones used outdoors
Marble is a popular choice for outdoor use due to its natural beauty, durability, and resistance to extreme temperatures and weather conditions. Marble tiles can be used for outdoor flooring, walkways, patios and even as a cladding material. Marble is also relatively low maintenance and easy to clean, making it a convenient option for outdoor use. Additionally, it has a non-slip surface, which is important for safety in outdoor areas. Marble’s natural variations and patterns also give it a unique and elegant look which can add a touch of luxury to outdoor spaces.
Granite is a great choice for outdoor use because it is a natural stone that is not only durable but also offers a number of other benefits. It is resistant to scratches, stains and extreme temperatures, making it ideal for use in high-traffic areas. It is also water-resistant, which makes it suitable for use around pools or fountains. Granite is also easy to clean and maintain, making it a convenient option for busy homeowners. Additionally, granite has a high compressive strength and is fire resistant, which makes it a safe option for outdoor use. Furthermore, granite has a natural beauty that can enhance the overall aesthetic of any outdoor space.
Limestone is a popular choice for outdoor use due to its natural beauty, durability, and versatility. It can be used for flooring, walls, and as a building material. Limestone is also weather-resistant and can withstand exposure to the elements without losing its strength or aesthetic appeal. Depending on the finish it is also slip-resistant and can be used for patios, and walkways. It is also easy to maintain and can be sealed to minimise staining. Limestone can be found in different colours and finishes, making it a great option to complement any outdoor space.
Travertine is a popular choice for outdoor applications due to its durability and natural beauty. It is a type of limestone that is formed by hot springs and is characterised by its unique cavities and ridges. Travertine is a great option for outdoor flooring, patios, and walkways as it is slip-resistant (depending on finish) and can withstand extreme weather conditions. Its natural beauty and colour variations can enhance any outdoor living space. Additionally, travertine is easy to clean and maintain, and it is resistant to staining, making it a great option for outdoor spaces that are exposed to the elements. Travertine also stays naturally cool to the touch and thus can be comfortable to walk on during hot summer days, making it a great option for outdoor areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
With regards to flooring, outdoor tiles typically have a more slip-resistant surface to prevent accidents, especially when the tiles are wet. Indoor tiles don’t have this requirement as they aren’t exposed to weather like outdoor tiles. When it comes to wall tiles or benchtops, there isn’t any difference as natural stone is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.
We do recommend sealing your stone tiles to get the most out of them. Sealing will not only help with maintenance of the stone it will also help prevent discolouration of your grout. For more information on sealing, get in touch with us and one of our expert team will be happy to help you.
All our outdoor tiles can be used indoors. As the stone won’t be exposed to weather indoors you can use whatever stone and finish you prefer, including for use in bathrooms and kitchens. Although it is not necessary to use a stone with high slip resistance in bathrooms there is no reason to not use an outdoor tile which has a high slip resistance.
