Here in Orlando, warm weather allows us to entertain guests outdoors practically all year round. The opportunity to spend so much time outside makes it imperative that our patios look just as good as the inside of our homes. There are so many different patio options to consider, and everybody’s tastes are different. To find the perfect flooring material that can stand up to inclement weather and look stylish all year round, consult your experts at Floor Coverings International Winter Garden.

 

Teak Planks

Teak is an incredibly durable hardwood that is known to last a long time outdoors. It is resistant to moisture, rot, and insect damage. Planks used outdoors may develop a faded grey hue, but many homeowners love how the color transition highlights the natural beauty of the wood. Lastly, installing teak hardwood is easy since there are variations that are made to snap together.

 

Stone

Natural stone is both strong and beautiful, which makes it a wonderful choice for outdoor flooring. Styles such as granite, slate, and travertine have been popular choices for some time. Most natural stone can withstand the pressure of the outdoors and some are even nearly impervious to water damage.

 

Brick Tile Flooring Orlando PatioBrick

Sturdy bricks are a classic choice that never go out of style. Bricks look great when placed in horizontal or diagonal patterns. If you want to put a fresh spin on this timeless flooring material with added visual intrigue, experiment with uniquely shaped bricks that create patterns and mosaics.

 

Rubber

While it may seem unconventional, rubber’s strength against the elements makes it an easy choice for patio floors, especially if you have little ones running around. You won’t even have to wear shoes outside because the smooth, elastic feel underfoot will keep you comfortable! It is incredibly easy to clean and you can also choose to use recycled rubber to help reduce waste in landfills.
