Patio Floor Ideas: The Material is Key
Just like designing any room, flooring is an important part of the look and feel of a space. When you’re considering your patio floor you should start by thinking about how you use your patio, or how you’d like to. Whether renovating your existing space or building a new one, it’s important to know that a little thing like the flooring can make a big impact on the feel and look of your outdoor room. Think about what you find attractive and what will complement the architecture and style of your home.
There are dozens of materials to choose from for your patio floor, and you will want to select one that makes you happy every time you look at it. Consider your budget, the size of your patio, and its primary function in your life. It’s also a good idea to pay attention to texture and slip resistance, style, shape, and durability.
Here are some of the top materials to get your patio floor ideas rolling!
Wood — it’s not just for indoors! Hardwood floors on your outdoor patio can be a beautiful choice. Some woods are better than others, and your wooden patio floor will need to be sealed and maintained. Wood could be an elegant choice for an outdoor sitting room or dining room!
Composite Decking — it’s got a woodgrain look but it’s really manufactured from wood and plastic. This gives it a longer outdoor life and it requires less maintenance than real wood floors. It is a versatile choice, with boards that can look rustic, modern, or in-between.
Natural Stone — earthy, organic, and enduring, there are many types and palettes of natural stone to choose from. Examples of stone used for patio flooring include marble, slate, travertine, limestone, and granite. They vary in size and shape and can achieve a wide range of styles and sensibilities.
Brick — tailored and traditional, brick is a classic choice. Bricks can be set in various patterns and come in an array of natural colors, from the familiar red for old-school charm, to browns or even green. They can be sealed and finished to look new or aged, and they are an easy surface to clean and maintain.
Pavers — made of concrete with the look of stone, pavers form a nice middle ground between stone and brick. There are many ways to customize a paver patio floor, from the pattern to the size, color, and texture.
Porcelain Tile — dense and tough, these tiles come in a range of glazes and glossiness. They can even resemble a clay tile look if that’s what you prefer, but with more durability. They are able to withstand the cold winters and deep freezes of Northern New Jersey, unlike more porous tile options. Tile can look like natural stone or be a fun way to play with patterns and colors.
Concrete — If you want to keep it simple, you can dress up your concrete! Nowadays concrete can be stamped and textured and can look a lot like natural stone. It even comes in an array of color choices and can be painted, so even a concrete patio floor can be just like you dreamed it would be.
