As sunny days and warm evenings begin to lure you outside, is your space an outdoor oasis, or is it in need of a makeover? Outdoor showers, kitchens, patios, and pools can all be easily and beautifully transformed with the addition of elegant backsplash tile, colorful mosaic glass tile, and other wall tile from MSI’s extensive inventory.

Many natural stone, porcelain, and pattern tiles are suitable for both indoors and outdoors, even for areas with freezing temperatures. This means you never have to compromise on style, function, or design.

If you dream of reading a book under a pergola or taking a quick dip in a pool at a luxurious resort, you can recreate that same look and feel in your own backyard! This tranquil Outdoor Oasis features Blue Blend Glass Mosaic Tiles that line the pool.

The alluring tones are reminiscent of the warm waters of the Caribbean, reflecting sunlight and the movement of the water. The deep blue tones of these tiles are timeless, making them the perfect choice for any swimming pool or spa.

Outdoor bathing is luxurious in a space like this. This traditionally styled bathroom with classic White Subway Tile has swinging doors that open to the backyard, for a true indoor/outdoor spa experience. Bringing the exterior paint color indoors provides a seamless look when the doors are open.  

Better yet, this design allows for year-round use, even in areas with freezing temperatures where outdoor faucets must be drained during winter months to prevent pipe damage. 

MSI’s vast selection of natural stone wall tiles, glass mosaics, and porcelain tiles are well-suited for exterior design projects. Updating kitchen backsplashes, pools and spas, and outdoor showers gives your Outdoor Oasis a freshness to enjoy for years to come.
