The most visible part of a building is the forefront which tells a lot about the owners of the house: their style, frame of mind, eco-consciousness and creativity. The ideal covering for the facade matches not only the building itself but also the surrounding garden. Traditional artificial stones are usually very similar. However, natural stones are different in both colours and patterns. By using them we can design a unique and spectacular facade for our house. Naturally, we have to pay attention to the weather conditions, as freezing damages the wall coverings as well. No matter how much we like a certain stone, if it is not frost-resistant, we should definitely give it up. Our budget will benefit as well.
As they are not directly eye-level, practical common sense takes priority over looks when tiles are chosen. But it does not necessarily have to be this way. If we use decorative tiles outdoor, we will be able to indulge in the spectacle of the intricate patterns on them every day. At the same time, there is no denying the fact that functionality is important. With tiles we have to care about their being slip-resistant, as there is nothing more annoying than turning a sommersault on the tiles in rainy or snowy weather. Apart from this the colour of the stones should also be taken into consideration. Too lighr tiles get easily dirty and they need frequent cleaning. Dark tiles can get hot in the sunshine, and may be uncomfortable for those wanting to walk on them barefoot.
