Patricia’s Mediterranean Patio Makeover

Mediterranean Patio Makeover

There’s nothing like having a blank canvas to transform in your home or garden! We were thrilled to see customer Patricia’s glorious Mediterranean patio makeover take shape using our tiles, and caught up with her to find out more.

We retired and moved to Dorset in 2019. The garden was a big blank space with only grass.

My husband built a shed/summer house and we have recently started the landscaping with a new path and patio.

Choosing tiles for our Mediterranean patio makeover

We wanted light tiles with a contemporary Mediterranean feel. We had used Direct Tile Warehouse products before and being able to get samples was a big help as buying online without seeing the products is risky. We chose Magma Beige 50 x 50 for the patio.

We loved the tiles we chose and they were an excellent quality and price. Perfect for our Mediterranean patio makeover!

We had a young student to help us with the ground work and my husband did everything else. We love the finished results and it’s going to look even better when the path and planting are done.

Tips for a Mediterranean Patio Makeover

  1. Plan, plan, plan! Gather inspiration from your travels, magazines, or the internet
  2. Work out your budget. There’s nothing worse than running out of money halfway through a project!
  3. Devise a rough timeline. Factor in holidays and patches of nicer weather
  4. Get help! Patricia enlisted a student to help with her garden. You could also try friends and family.
  5. Shop around. There are many bargains to be had in sales sections!
  6. Plan for growth. Leave space for raised beds or flowers so your garden can evolve.
  7. Whether you want to add a water fountain or garden artwork, a little embellishment goes a long way.
  8. Be aware of hidden electric, water and gas cables!
  9. Check if you need any planning permissions or to follow any building codes.
  10. Have fun! You’ll look back with a sense of pride at what you’ve achieved.
