One of the hottest trends in home design today is incorporating an outdoor space for family and friends to gather. Whether this is initially installed during the construction process or added onto an existing property as a remodel type project, extending your living space to the outside can be an extremely rewarding experience.
In many cases, this area will also incorporate a grill, griddle, or be designed to enjoy the benefits of a full outdoor kitchen. Being able to both prepare meals, serve, and entertain guests all in one area can be a huge plus for homeowners. Instead of having individuals tracking in and out of your home, constructing this type of space is not only great for meal prep and serving but can also increase your property value. However, one area that is often not given the consideration it deserves, is exactly what type of flooring material to use. Fortunately, there are many options available to serve your needs.
This extremely durable and long lasting material can provide years of use without showing any signs of wear and tear. In addition, if the area is also used as a cooking or eating space then any spills should clean up quick and easy on this surface. Available in irregular or specific patterns, once installed the maintenance and upkeep on outdoor granite flooring is minimal.
Tile floors offer some of the same benefits as granite but may be available in more variety at a little less price point. In addition, these can be installed to create more regular patterns and even give the appearance of a deck with wood look tiles. While upkeep is relatively easy and durability near the same as granite, should any cracks or damage appear, these tiles will be far easier to repair than in the unlikely event something were to ever damage a granite surface.
Travertine flooring pros and cons also include similar benefits as the two preceding options with one major exception. The upkeep and maintenance required for these flooring options can be somewhat complicated, especially when being utilized outdoors. However, for homeowners who are looking for a bit of luxury or to create a specific look and feel to their outdoor space, then travertine could be right for you.
