Having an open terrace is a unique feature of any home, and the perfect place to relax in the sun, have a family lunch or gather friends for a party. There are many ways to make your open terrace comfortable and stylish, but the flooring is a very important part of it. So here are 5 flooring ideas for your open terrace:
Stone flooring is a strong, durable and natural option. There are choices of light shades of stone such as limestone, or more unique darker tones of stone such as granite and slate. It is best to balance the colours with the furniture, so use light furniture with a dark floor and vice versa.
Concrete has made a comeback in the last few years as a trendy flooring option both inside and outside. It is a sturdy, hard-wearing option and looks appealing when paired with colourful furniture, plants and decor.
Outdoor tiles are often a popular flooring choice for a terrace as they are low maintenance, strong and resilient. A good choice is an interesting colour or pattern to make the floor a feature of the terrace.
A modern and extraordinary flooring option that not many people think of is rubber. There are many kinds of durable rubber tiled flooring that is easy to install and is great for keeping out heat and noise.
Gravel is a good option if you want a natural look for your terrace, and it can be very affordable. Create a rural look with gravel and make a mini garden on the terrace.
