Best outdoor and patio floors

Published: April 9, 2015

As the weather warms, thoughts turn to family dinners outside, graduation open houses, summer entertaining. Whether you have an existing outdoor space or are planning to add one this year. We’ve got some great recommendations on the best flooring choices for your outdoor deck or patio.

Outdoor flooring options seem at first to be fairly limited. You need a floor that can stand up to varying weather and temperature changes while also giving you an attractive, welcoming space. You might be surprised to learn that there are a number of good choices that each lend a distinctive look and quality to your outdoor space.

Good floors for outdoor spaces

Natural stone 

You might think your patio is restricted to brick or concrete. But if you’re looking for something a little more distinctive, look at tile floors for your outdoor space. Limestone or slate tiles are great options for a walkway or patio. You can use naturally cut stones for a mosaic look or select cut stones for a more uniform floor.

Ceramic tile

Another great option for your patio: ceramic tile. You’ll want to make sure you have a tile grade that can withstand the temperature changes outdoors and a sealant and finish that are very slip-resistant. Both ceramic and stone tile are made from natural resources and create a beautiful outdoor space.

Wooden tiles

Perhaps you have a simple concrete slap patio and are looking for a budget-friendly upgrade. Consider laying wooden tiles on top of the concrete to give it a whole new look.

Outdoor carpeting

Water-resistant and durable carpets can define a space and give a comfortable underfoot feel on decks or patios. Outdoor carpets come in a wide variety of colors, weaves and styles.
