When creating an outdoor space for your Oklahoma City home, it’s important to consider which flooring can survive damage from weather, water, and light. The best choices are durable, low-maintenance, and resistant to the elements. Floor Coverings International Edmond has compiled our favorite options for outdoor flooring application.
Redwood Hardwood Planks or Cedar Hardwood Planks
Hardwood is an excellent choice for creating a stylish, rustic outdoor area that truly matches the surroundings. Not all hardwood can survive weathering, water, and light, but some species are naturally resistant. Cedar and redwood are able to withstand damage from water, mold, mildew, and UV light.
Another benefit of wood: it won’t get unbearably hot under the sun. Have you ever stepped outside in bare feet and found the surface underneath you scorching hot? You won’t have that problem with wood.
Porcelain tiles can be designed to resemble brick, stone, concrete, and various other materials. Non-porous and durable, porcelain won’t be damaged by the elements. This flooring is completely waterproof, won’t discolor under UV light, and is durable enough to avoid any weather damage. These factors make porcelain an ideal and versatile option for the outdoors. Porcelain tiling is also one of the most affordable options for outdoor flooring. For rustic appeal and practicality, choose a matte non-slip finish for your porcelain tiles.
Slate Tile Flooring
The natural and elegant appearance of slate flooring is ideal for creating a visually appealing, timeless outdoor space. Most commonly found in elegant gray, slate tiles can also be brown or red. Appearance isn’t the only benefit of slate – it’s also one of the most durable natural stone flooring options. Slate is also non-porous, giving it excellent water resistance.
