A well decorated screened porch is a true extension of your home’s living space. Beautiful screened porch flooring is one of the essential elements of a porch that can be enjoyed year round. Fortunately, there is a wide variety of screened porch flooring available on today’s market, ranging from wood to concrete and everything in between. What’s more, updating your flooring is one of the easiest ways to update your décor and adding value to your home.
When selecting your screened porch flooring, keep in mind that above all else, the flooring should be durable. No matter the material you choose, your flooring must be able to withstand both the outdoor elements and your households’ normal wear and tear. In the same vein, take special consideration when choosing wood flooring if you live in an insect- or termite-prone area.
What are some of your screened porch flooring options? Teak and pine flooring are timeless, popular choices, while laminate is a less expensive, lower maintenance option that can mimic the look of real hardwood. Laminate floors can also be manufactured to mimic stone or slate flooring. Brick floors are an excellent choice for screened porches, as bricks are remarkably durable and easy to maintain.
Interlocking tiles can often be laid over existing wood or concrete flooring. Tiles are often scratch resistant and can be laid in unique designs or as a border around the porch perimeter. Interlocking tiles come in a range of material options, including wood, porcelain, slate, granite, composite, or bamboo. However, when using tiles, make sure the tiles you choose can withstand outdoor heat, moisture, and freezing conditions. Concrete flooring is extremely durable, and can even feature textured, non-slip overlays that look like stone, brick, or slate. Painting your concrete porch floor is an easy, quick, and less expensive way to spruce up your existing floor.
