Stuck on choosing a tile? We can help with a recommendation!
1. Summertime Picnic Zone
For a comfortable summertime picnic, plenty of shade and muted colours can help achieve the carefree fun-in-the-sun vibes that are just perfect for instagrammable hangouts. Besides wood and woven materials, natural stone shades such as those on ZR Ragno not only help complete the look, but also help prevent sun glare with their non-reflective surfaces, and just elevate the overall aesthetics!
2. Tea Time in the Garden
The nature lovers among us would appreciate basking in natural light amidst lush greenery, which is why we are making this our next choice. Biophilic design is officially the trend of the season, and there’s just no combo like green plants and textured stone surfaces like those found on SV Stone 2.0. Not only does the colour play incredibly well against the various shades of green found in nature, the structured surfaces also help to ground the experience for a perfect afternoon tea.
3. Roof Terrace Hangout
For a distinctively urban outlook, there’s nothing quite like a rooftop party to celebrate city life. For rooftop terraces that can be purposed into hangout zones, our recommendation is to go for darker shades of tiles, such as the ZSV24 Pirate Black variant of SV Stone 2.0, which helps keep the colour temperature down while contributing a uniquely chic and urban ambience.
