Outdoor Oasis: Ultimate Outdoor Spaces

January 10, 2017

Today's outdoor spaces have truly become an extension of the home, as reflected in their thoughtful design and careful selection of finishes. And whether you're creating the ultimate outdoor kitchen or a relaxing backyard spa, you can enjoy a beautiful and functional oasis with pavers and hardscape products from MSI. 

You've probably heard of bringing the outdoors in, but why not try bringing the indoors out by using flooring in outdoor spaces that can be used indoors as well?

Carrying your flooring over to the outdoors creates an expansive, luxurious feel and makes for a seamless transition. For indoor/outdoor use, travertine pavers and tile are an ideal choice because of their beauty, wide array of sizes and finishes, and exceptional durability.

For example, Tuscany Beige Tumbled Travertine Pavers from MSI feature a warm cream and tan palette suited to almost any decor, and are available in finishes, ranging from rustic tumbled to honed. The variety of sizes allows you to create a customized design with a high-end feel.

Tuscany Beige Tumbled Travertine Pavers are durable enough for pool and spa surrounds, as shown in these stunning images, yet provide an elegant transition to upscale outdoor lounges and patios.

Another great option to bring the sophistication of the indoor environment outside is Tuscany Platinum Travertine Tile.

Installing travertine tiles in unexpected places like drives and walkways adds instant panache to your home's exterior, and a little bit of glamour to often overlooked areas.

Slate flagstone is another tried and true outdoor finish that is excellent for exterior flooring and landscaping projects. MSI's California Gold Slate Flagstone features bold hues of rust, tan, and gray that embrace the natural environment.

This varied palette coordinates effortlessly with other MSI products, such as the stacked stone wall panels shown in the gorgeous fireplace cladding above. The dynamic slate colors and varying sizes of the flagstone are the main design element in these images and create an irresistible outdoor entertaining space.
