The summer months are slowly creeping up on us. 

This means only 2 things. Great weather (finally) and BBQs!

However, the BBQ area of your garden may be looking a bit worse for wear. Have no fear though as The Online Tile Shop is here to help. 

Use this as a guide to understand the best outdoor tile options and why your outdoor BBQ area needs a little bit of tender loving care. 

Bringing Your Family Together

The past few years have been rocky for most people. As a result the maintenance of your home may not have been at the top of your priorities list.

By updating your outdoor space you are able to really bring your loved ones together this summer. Making memories that last a lifetime. 

If this is what you want to achieve we recommend maximising the amount of space you use for your outdoor BBQ space!

Canopies and roofs will also work really well with a BBQ space as it will make your guests feel at home. 

Decoration is also key. Fairy Lights work wonders especially if you are hosting events that go on into the early hours.



Which Tiles Are Best For The Outdoors?

Many people tend to enjoy their BBQs in open spaces. 

British weather can be unpredictable, even in the summer. That’s why it is important to understand the different characteristics of different tiles. 

What more, BBQs can become quite a heated affair. Having a heat resistant tile goes hand in hand with having a BBQ area in your garden. 

Outdoor porcelain tiles are known to be a good, all rounder when renovating outdoor spaces. 

They are a firm option making them long lasting and money efficient. They are also made from clay, resulting in increased heat resistance. 

Our Mesina Gris tile has amazing quality, boasting a beautiful traditional pattern. This tile will bring any BBQ area to life!

How Do I Maintain My BBQ area?

Once your BBQ area is set up you must consider the maintenance. 

As mentioned before, opting for a more sturdy tile can reduce the risk of wear and tear. 

Products are available on the market for tile aftercare. We recommend the Floorseal range of products. They are an industry known brand and their products are easy to get your head around!

Also having a roof over your area is beneficial. Overall the area is more resistant to weather and gives it more of a layout.

The tiles were a great price compared to other online retailers selling the same tiles. However, £30 for a DHL delivery seemed a bit expensive for a small order (approx 220 15x10cm tiles for a splashback).
