A difficult choice: small versus large patio tiles
Large patio tiles have been in fashion for a long time, but now that we are living in smaller homes and our patios are decreasing in size as well, more and more people are opting for modest-sized stones. Moreover, small tiles have an especially charming and southern feel. If you prefer a modern, sleek style, however, then large tiles are the better choice for you. An extra advantage to larger tiles is that they are a breeze to maintain, as they require fewer joints. Conversely, small patio tiles have more joints but tend to have improved anti-slip properties because of it.
Did you know that all bluestone patio tiles from Carrières du Hainaut are available in multiple sizes? That means you can easily, for example, alternate wide and narrow strips for an original and dynamic effect.
