How to Design Patio Floor

 

Are you looking for a flooring design for your patio and don’t know how to start. Trust me, we all have this confusion when we start on a flooring design.

There are several options for outdoor flooring available today. Concrete floor, Stone, Pebble tile floor, Concrete Pavers, Brick floor, Slate, Flagstone etc. are some popular types of patio flooring.

There are several things to consider while selecting the flooring for patio. First of all you must be sure about the durability of the floor. Weather proof and skid proof floor is required for patio. The size of patio floor should be considered before making selection of the floor for your patio as the cost could be an issue  if you do not do your home work about the size.

The design of Patio floor is another considerable issue.

Brick Floors can also looks unique but if the bricks are joined in proper sequence. It is durable, heat, water and skid resistant.

Brick patios can be designed in different colors, textures, styles and patterns. You can apply your imagination on bricks to make a creative design for your patio.

Stone is durable for outdoor flooring. Your creativity of choosing stones can make your patio beautiful. There are many options of stones like bluestone, flagstone and slate for your patio. Stone patios are durable as they do not crack easily. They can not be damaged by termites. Flagstone floor is one of the best options for outdoor flooring.  Various colors can be used for floor in patio.

 

Pebble Floor Tiles are also popular for outdoor flooring. These are available in different colors, sizes and designs. This flooring provides thousands of creative ideas in different colors and textures. The cost of pebble floor tile is cheaper than other types of flooring.

Concrete floor is popular for outdoor flooring. You can make concrete floor more inviting by adding dye for more colors. Textured concrete floor will make your patio more interesting. To make patio attractive, just add some colors in concrete.

Finally, the type of flooring you have decided for your outdoor patio is as important as the design of floor. The patio is like a room in your house and you should try to make it inviting and interesting.
