How to design with outdoor terracotta tiles
How to design with outdoor terracotta tiles. Terracotta tiles have been used outdoors since Roman times. The Roman settlers in AD100 Britain would re-create the style of outdoor space villa living that was so popular back home. As they settled in Britain they were keen to carry on their Mediterranean life style. It would appear, that like today, the changeable UK climate did not deter them from creating beautiful outdoor terraces to enjoy alfresco dining with family and friends. The product of choice was the terracotta tile, cut to different sizes and shapes to create interesting patterns and colour.
