Connect indoor and outdoor spaces with encaustic cement tiles

Otto Tiles & Designs' encaustic cement floor tiles enable you to create a seamless transition between inside and out.

Bridging the gap between spaces, laying these beautiful coordinated floor tiles from the home into the garden (opens in new tab) will create visual harmony, and make your interior and exterior space feel bigger and lighter.

Not just that, the beautiful Moorish inspired designs will evoke a relaxed Mediterranean feel all year round, particularly if laid in a kitchen, hallway or garden room that leads out to a patio or terrace (they perfectly suit the addition of a berber-style rug (opens in new tab) in the winter months too).

Damla Turgut, Founder, Otto Tiles & Design says, 'Blending your indoor and outdoor tiles creates the appearance of having one big room, as opposed to two separate spaces and by connecting the two, you can bring inside a feeling of freshness and a sense of well-being to your home.'

With their clean, uncomplicated design, Magic Triangle Grey from Otto Tiles & Design are divided diagonally into two triangles, one white and the other a deep grey.

These handcrafted encaustic tiles (opens in new tab) can be laid to create an alternating colour of squares or as a patchwork effect by turning alternate tiles by 90 degrees.

With Otto Tiles & Design's Turquoise Dreams, their rich turquoise colour is offset with deep black.

The design allows for the formation of either graphic leaves or large ovals.

Founded by Damla Turgut in 2015, Otto Tiles & Design make handmade, bespoke, encaustic cement, ceramic and terrazzo tiles. They are based in London, Zurich and Istanbul and work with leading architects and designers on residential and commercial projects around the globe.
