Great flooring isn’t just for indoors. These fantastic outdoor flooring options will make your patio as stylish as the inside of your home, just in time for summer barbecues.

1) Wood Tiles

Wood tiles are a great outdoor flooring option. They’re durable, and they pair well with a number of styles, from sophisticated minimalism to rustic. They’re also great for families with young children, since they’re much softer than stone or concrete patios. These solid teak tiles are a breeze to install on your own, since each one simply locks into place.

2) Faux Stone

If you have a concrete patio, you don’t need a major renovation to get a Venetian stone patio. These stone deck tiles snap together for easy do-it-yourself installation, and give you the look and feel of natural stone without breaking the bank.
