Because you don’t want to spend your summer hanging out in the dirt, but really, choosing the right flooring for your front yard, backyard, patio decking, and poolside is important and, often, overlooked. People be like “GIVE ME THAT HARDWOOD” and then forget about that little thing called curb appeal.
Most people don’t know their options, which makes it hard to make an informed decision on the best outdoor flooring for you. There’s plenty of options out there, but we’re just going to share some of the very popular ones.
The most versatile in terms of appearance, composite wood-look decking can give your outdoor patio flooring a rustic, homey feel or a chic, polished, modern look. As we know, wood never goes out of style, making composite wood-look decking a choice that won’t go out of style.
Think of these tiles as a trendier and inexpensive version of the traditional wood deck boards. These tiles give you the most sought after “wood-look,” minus the installation’s weight and pain. And they’re gorgeous!
Composite wood decking gives you the best of both worlds. With modern technology, you can achieve a gorgeous, realistic wood look without traditional wood challenges.
Composite deck flooring is like the luxury vinyl of the porch flooring market. Maybe some out-of-date folks are still turning their nose up at it, but others embrace composite decking as the outdoor flooring of the future. Composite decks, like vinyl floors, bring you realistic wood looks without any hassles.
Is there anything more gorgeous than classic stone patio tiles or a wood patio? Here is a secret! Most of those “stone” or “wood” patios you see aren’t stone or wood, but tile. Patio floor tiles, specifically, porcelain exterior tiles, are often even more durable than natural materials like stone and wood, depending on the PEI rating to get the best of both worlds.
Plastic drainage tiles are like the ultimate outdoor flooring. They’re mold- and mildew-resistant and designed specifically to prevent slipping when they get wet. The vented surface allows water to drain under the tile, so there aren’t any standing puddles after a rain. The tiles’ hard plastic is UV stable, which means the color won’t fade even after extended exposure to sunlight.
Drainage tiles work great for decks and patios, and around pools, outdoor showers, and anywhere that moisture might cause some challenges. Installing them is as easy as connecting them with the hook and loop system and laying them out.
And now for a round of “Floors, You Never Thought to Put Outside.” Rubber flooring!
Seriously though, rubber is one of the most versatile flooring options there is. Although it is primarily used as gym flooring, rubber flooring is durable, slip-resistant, and shock absorbent. That means you can run, play and fall on it all you like, and both you and your floor will come out okay.
So, where do you start with rubber flooring? There’s a lot of options which can make it a little overwhelming. That’s why we’re breaking it down into the primary outdoor rubber flooring categories which include: Rubber Pavers, Rubber Tiles/Rolls, and Rubber Playground Flooring.
Let’s go back in time to the classic, elegant look of British brick architecture. Brick can give you many different options for colors and patterns for your porch flooring, and it creates a unique look that sets you apart from the rest. Perfect for by an outdoor fireplace, or a cozy patio, brick is an often forgotten, but gorgeous outdoor flooring option.
Does concrete count as a floor? I guess you could say concrete is the anti-flooring outdoor option. Many homeowners are drawn to using concrete outdoors because, well, have you ever heard the expression 'hard as concrete'? You'd have to put some effort into destroying concrete, which means it will probably last forever.
Also, you probably don't even need to do anything. Chances are your house came with a concrete patio, and, if you want, you can stain it. Or you can just leave it be.
