When Susan sent us her fabulous photos of the stunning Greek taverna she has created in her garden, we had to share them straight away. It’s a great demonstration of adding interest outdoors with tiles, and how to get that holiday vibe all year round. Yamas!
We bought a new build house so the garden was a blank canvas, with just a lawn. Whilst on holiday in Skiathos, Greece we dreamed of recreating a similar holiday feel in our garden in Derbyshire. Back home we both sketched what we imagined and the ideas matched, so the taverna was born!
Neil is a builder and quickly got to work, building and rendering. We wanted the roof tiles to have a Mediterranean feel, and the floor to reflect this style too. Tiles seemed to be the perfect answer but needed to be authentic-looking, but also weatherproof, hardwearing and practical.
Creating our garden Greek taverna
Direct Tile Warehouse had an excellent choice and brilliant prices. We received samples and after competently answering enquiries regarding suitability for outdoors and delivery we placed our order. We chose the Provence Rustic Tiles with a stunning panel of the Decor in the centre. We are thrilled with the result and now have a real taste of Greece on a sunny day in Derbyshire.
Direct Tile Warehouse gave us great service, keeping us updated all the time with an order sourced from overseas. One tile arrived chipped and was promptly replaced with no quibble. We would recommend Direct Tile Warehouse to anyone requiring tiles for any application.
