If you’re thinking of giving your home’s exterior an upgrade, your front yard or backyard patio are two areas you can tackle. Although the right garden and landscape design can do wonders when it comes to the aesthetics of your property, it’s the flooring you choose to use for these areas that has the biggest impact on how your outdoor space looks. The following four outdoor flooring options are some of the best to choose from when designing your outdoor patio or porch.
Nothing brings warmth to a home’s exterior like brick-look tile flooring. You can add a historical, authentic look to your modern home that complements the colours of your patio furniture and roof. Bricklane provides a more industrial effect, which is very popular. It adds a touch of creativity, is easy to shape, and creates a sophisticated, vintage look.
Concrete flooring like Re-Use Concrete is an inexpensive and practical option for the outdoors. The tiles are usually installed in a geometric grid of square blocks. The customizable nature of Evo-Landscape Porcelain concrete tiles, for example, allows them to be laid close together, further apart, and in different sizes. It also operates as a stable space that is durable during all seasons. The tiles can even be stained to match any shade that suits your exterior home décor. Concrete-look flooring can also achieve an ultra-modern look, or a smooth, natural look as used in Urbanite.
Natural stone materials like quartzite, slate, and limestone, create a beautiful outdoor environment that can suit any home décor. These tiles are great for creating a pathway to your garden, or provide a stunning floor for your patio set. Natural stone creates authenticity for your space and is durable during all seasons. You can match the colour of your tile flooring to complementary pieces in your landscaping or home’s exterior, as well. The Marble Europa Collection provides beautiful textures, colours, and shapes that will inspire you!
Wood-Look Porcelain Tiles
If you love the look of wood, but want a more durable material for your home’s exterior, consider a wood-look tile like Berkshire or Etic. Porcelain tiles are long-lasting, durable in all kinds of weather, and are stain- and moisture-resistant. Porcelain and ceramic tiles typically come sealed by default, but if you are choosing flooring near a pool it may be a good idea to consider stone tiles as they contain a gritty surface that prevents slipping. There are many options for wood-look tiles such as different colours, styles, and sizes, so choose the look that works best for your needs.
