When we take a blank sheet of paper and a pencil ✏️ and start sketching out a project for outdoor flooring, the first thing we need to consider is the context: the environment surrounding the space we are going to design, the area in which the flooring will fit.
The first thing to be considered when designing outdoor flooring is therefore the context 🏞. Even if the outdoor floor we are going to install will have to interpose itself with the state of the places, transforming and "bending" it to our needs.
And there are many different contexts in which we have to think about and design external floors: the pedestrian entrance of a single house, the private garden of two semi-detached houses, the internal courtyard of a block of flats, the entrance to a shop or a shopping centre...
The most frequent case, which we happen to design and realise, is definitely the external paving of residential houses 🏡.
And I must say that our customers are very keen on this: in the Vicenza and Verona areas, especially in the small towns in the Venetian provinces, the external spaces of the house are very well cared for 🖼 and the external floors are also made with care.
Creating projects and external paving for houses is our "speciality" 🥇 and we are sure that in this article you will find the 💡right idea for the external spaces of your house!
