    Hi All,

    I am installing a pergola about 30sqm in size and looking to put some sturdy and easy to clean outdoor tiles/slats. As my house is built using those yellow bricks and they are exposed externally, I was thinking of using sandstone pavers as they will complement the yellow brick and the 'sandbank' colorbond roof I am using. Have anyone used these under a pergola? Could you suggest any other options out there. Where can I find some good quality outdoor tiles in Southwest Sydney?

    Thanks

    Yellow brick,yellow roof and yellow pavers.
    Too much yellow for my liking.How about a contrast color. Black, (might get hot) brown or red?
    Amber tiles have a few outlets around SW, Mount Pritchard, Penrith are a couple.

    Maybe something in a charcoal tone so it won't show the dirt or spills that sandstone would (which also requires sealing occasionally). 2nd vote for Amber Tiles.

    Thanks Guys, come to think of it a darker shade might be a better option. I will pop into the closest Amber Tiles store and check out their collection.

    Yep - I'm with Magpie - don't try and match, contrast in a complimentary colour. Amber will let you bring a few different ones home to see how they match.

    Either got darker (charcoal if in shade) or lighter (cream but may have to seal). Pavers would be cheaper than tiles, and you can lay them yourself.

    Personally I'm a decking lover, and now you can buy those self levelling decking systems from Bunning that need only be a few mm off the ground and no footings ... although I'd by the legs and build my own deck on top rather than the prefab squares.

    Very nice - are they a tile or a paver?

    just went to the closest Amber and checked out the tiles, the 'Timberdeck tiles were nothing like the ones I saw on web. Very rough, wouldn't be suitable for the kids to run around. Looked through their the other tiles, only one jumped out.(see below). But unfortunately have to wait for 2 weeks, for this.
