Be careful you don’t slip up when choosing your decking!

Why it’s important that your outdoor dining area and garden decking is non-slip and how tiles can help.

Outdoor Tiles

Now that you’re ready to welcome people back, you will want to ensure that your outdoor areas are safe as well as stylish.

Non-slip decking tiles give you the sure footing you want in our unpredictable weather. If you’re starting to mingle again, and you’ve got friends and family over as guests, or you’re reopening your business to the public, you want to enjoy yourself and create the perfect outdoor experience, and not have to worry about any unfortunate falls. 

Non-slip tiles

Outdoor tiles must be extremely tough, with properties including thermal shock resistance, frost resistance, and fire resistance. Versatile’s range of patio, decking and outdoor tiles are resistant to stains, acids and chemicals, resistant to corrosion from salt, attack from mould, moss and verdigris. The right non-slip tiles can stand up to the rigours of almost any environment, as is expected of modern outdoor decking. Business owners know exactly how much wear and tear can occur to tiles in areas of high footfall, but the strength and endurance of Versatile’s range of outdoor tiles makes them an excellent investment for your business, be they for a deck, garden patio, or any outdoor area where your family, friends or customers may convene. 

But just because they’re practical doesn’t mean they can’t also be beautiful.

PLANET is a collection inspired by planetary trends in colours. Its different shades are evocative of landscapes seemingly from outer space, from lunar settings to scenery typical of Mars. An extensive collection available in a wide variety of formats and finishes, Planet can be used in settings of all kinds. Its restful design comes in a choice of five attractive neutral colours in keeping with the latest chromatic trends, which can be viewed here.

You might also enjoy a tile which can give a continuity between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Due to the various finishes offered, Calx can be laid both indoors and outdoors to create visual continuity. Calx takes a modern approach to a retro look, combining an urban effect with the spaciousness of contemporary rooms. The ceramic Calx collection offers wall surfaces inspired by the walls, decor and mosaics of yesteryear, coordinated with porcelain stoneware floor surfaces, in neutral shades with a minimalist look.

With this complete collection, it is easy to create a welcoming yet sophisticated living space, perfect to coordinate with designer furnishings for a natural look.

For something a little bit more traditional, the organic warmth of wood is enhanced and accentuated in the French Wood collection. Refined and elegant, the porcelain stoneware is suitable for both interior and exterior floor surfaces. Format sizes and an antiqued effect allow you to create impressive surfaces inspired by the finest species of timber. Combining comfort with practicality in a refined, authentic mood, with their timeless beauty, the surfaces are not only suitable for rustic or traditional settings but also modern lifestyle trends and outdoor areas.

The only limiting factor here is your imagination, as you can install outdoor tiles directly onto sand, place them oriental style on your lawn, attach them to a raised platform, place them onto an adhesive, or fit them directly onto an existing decking structure to quickly and easily brighten up the dining experience of your customers. 

You’ll want to keep your deck looking as new as possible for as long as possible. With non-slip tiles, this couldn’t be easier! All you need is some warm water, a mop, and some PH neutral cleaner and people will think you’ve just put down a new deck.


Rain or shine, you can be comfortable in your surroundings with non-slip tiles.

Practicality meets flexibility in wood, stone, marble, metal and concrete finishes, so you can easily find the perfect tile to complement or even enhance the ambience of your deck.
