one of the eas­i­est ways to add in­ter­est to an out­door area is through tiles. un­like in­doors, you can ex­per­i­ment with bolder de­signs and bright colours. Be sure to use out­door-graded prod­ucts such as mor­tar and sealants from the get-go to en­sure the tiles need lit­tle main­te­nance over the long run.

When it comes to long-term in­vest­ments, a ce­ment fin­ish is your best bet. ‘ce­ment-based fin­ishes are a blank can­vas,’ says na­dine Prinsloo from cem­crete. ‘It gives you room to ex­plore dif­fer­ent styles and trends while re­main­ing time­less.’ cem­crete.co.za 
