Spring into New Design

As the weather gets warmer, many homeowners are looking to create a functional and stylish outdoor space for entertaining and relaxing. From seating and dining areas to fire pits and durable materials such as stone pavers, there are countless ways to create an outdoor oasis that meets your needs and reflects your personal style.


Make the Most of Materials

One of the key elements to creating an inviting outdoor space is choosing the right materials. Stone pavers are a popular choice for outdoor flooring as they are extremely durable and come in a wide variety of colors and textures. Whether you want a rustic look or a sleek modern feel, there are stone pavers to match any design aesthetic.

Porcelain Pops

Porcelain tile is a versatile and durable option that can withstand harsh weather conditions, making it perfect for outdoor use. It comes in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind look.

Incorporate Stone

Stone materials can also be used to create stunning fire pit walls that not only provide warmth and ambiance but also add a touch of elegance to your outdoor space. Whether you opt for a traditional wood-burning fire pit or a modern gas-powered one, the addition of stone walls can make your fire pit area a true focal point of your outdoor space.

Stand out with Quartzite

Externa Quarzite by Emilceramica is as strong and hard-wearing as the dolostone that inspired it. The collection is designed for exterior use in public and private spaces where the highest technical performance is required in terms of weathering and stress resistance. The stone effect gives a strikingly natural look to the whole outdoor area, fitting perfectly into the surrounding environment: the perfect combination with the green of nature or the blue of the sky. Elegant Externa Quarzite gives locations a contemporary yet timeless style, adapting the simplicity of stone to the demands of innovative design. A paving of this kind is perfect with furnishings in colors such as brown, beige or cream, or shades that evoke an environmental note, like green and dark or bright blue.

Make it Seamless

Another popular trend in outdoor design is creating a cohesive flow between your indoor and outdoor spaces. This can be achieved by incorporating similar design elements, such as using the same stone materials in your outdoor space as you do inside your home. For example, if you have a natural stone fireplace in your living room, you could use the same type of stone for your outdoor seating area to create a seamless transition.



When it comes to outdoor dining, there are many stylish and functional options to choose from. From classic wooden picnic tables to modern glass and metal options, the possibilities are endless. For those looking to create an outdoor kitchen, natural stone countertops are an excellent choice. They are heat-resistant and easy to clean, making them perfect for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Natural stone countertops also add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your outdoor space.
