by Tile Wholesalers of Rochester

Our customers are prioritizing exterior spaces such as rooftops and patios more than ever in this post-Covid world. Celebrate Spring and Summer with the perfectly curated outdoor space great for socially-distanced entertaining and just hanging out. Plus, an outdoor living area can significantly add to your home’s resale value. 

Tile offers the opportunity to take your outdoor rooms to the next level. Enjoy the fresh air while surrounded by contemporary luxury. As you’re thinking about your next residential or commercial project to elevate your exterior space, consider these tile design tips.

Seasonal Durability:

The climate in the Rochester area impacts the tile you will select for your outdoor space. Given seasonal freezing and thawing conditions, be sure to choose products well-suited for colder regions and seasons. Crossville and Florida Tile are two of our manufacturers with durable options to withstand our infamous upstate winters. Crossville’s new Portugal Collection is specially designed for indoor-to-outdoor spaces!

Easy Maintenance:

Messes and spills are bound to happen. Tile is one of the easiest surfaces to clean and maintain. Crossville's SpeakEasy Collection gives the space a sense of warmth and tradition with weathered wood nuances in every plank, yet it will require significantly less cleaning and upkeep than real wood. For this reason and the beautiful design, the SpeakEasy Collection was selected for the floors at Hattie’s, the famous rooftop restaurant and bar located on the 9th floor of The Strathallan Hotel. With its superior porcelain body, the SpeakEasy floor will offer minimal maintenance and long-term beauty.

Style Matters:

What look do you hope to achieve for your outdoor space? Would you rather wood-look porcelain or marble compared to natural slate? Whatever your style preferences, our showroom consultants will help guide you in the right direction to turn your vision into a reality. The possibilities are endless. The Ecoscape Quest Collection from Florida Tile offers the aesthetic benefit of HDP-High Definition Porcelain® creating a stone look that is indistinguishable from natural materials.
