In the design of each terrace we can never overlook the materials that will be used. Especially today we are going to enter into the case of the terrace floors and the possible options. The selection of suitable soil includes several aspects to consider.
Terrace floors of different material to define areas
One of them may be the incidence of light. If it is an area with high temperatures, a very dark floor is not good. Other details for the terraces floors and your choice have to do directly with the style you want to convey. Similarly you can not lose sight of the maintenance needs according to the material. If you find yourself in this situation, we can help you make a decision.
Terrace floors of different styles and large garden on one side
Let's see some of the most used options not only on the terrace. Many of these proposals may be perfect for a garden or patio. The terrace like any other area is part of a planning process. The use to be made of this area and its wear are other factors in the selection of materials. Remember that as a basic rule this should be the space destined to relax.

An area where we can enjoy among friends and family. As a general rule the soil should be of good resistance. Other important aspects are its decorative power and functionality. They can be very versatile and more than the terrace extend to coatings of passage areas. Within the materials that we show you, there is great variety. Terrace floors and their designs can use wood, ceramics, natural stone or even vinyl.
Flooring and different finishes in light wood make this cozy dining room look
To this list you can add the concrete that offers many benefits. Regardless of the type, each floor requires a smooth base of good compactness. Starting with the wood we must say that without doubt it is one of the most popular. Among the aspects that make it stand out is its warmth. To which is added the aesthetic balance offered to the environments.
Ceramic variant that imitates wood in a modern space with a pool
When it comes to terraces near gardens or pools it is perfect. If we have to mention any inconvenience is its maintenance. Especially when it comes to wood located in wet areas. For example, pine wood has a very exotic presence. However, it requires that we apply protective treatment twice a year. When applying it on our terrace we must be aware of these needs.
Another cool contrast of tiles and wood in the finish of the platform and the pergola
For the terrace tiled floors or the so-called pine slats are the most economical within this group. In general, they already include an autoclave treatment. A chemical-based process that protects the material from the attack of termites, fungi or any insect. The tropical wood variants are better if you look for a higher strength finish. Some like the Ipé or the Bangkirai are harder and of a higher density.
Geometric finished floor in different shades of gray resistant to low temperatures
The protective treatment in these varieties can be applied once a year. On the terrace composite floors can give that warm effect in the same way. It is a mixture of wood fibers and some plastic resins. Among them high or low density polyethylene or the well known PVC. From the decorative point allows us to enjoy the same aspect of wood.
The gray is perfect to achieve a terrace with a neutral air and elegant shapes
On the other hand it has the advantages of a plastic floor. Its resistance to fungi or termites is superior in every way. The surface grooves of the designs give it anti-slip properties. So if our terrace is near the pool the composite is a great option. Small areas such as outdoor showers can be designed with these models.

In addition to being anti-slip, its resistance to chlorine has already been proven. For the terrace ceramic floors can give a twist to the whole style. It is advisable that if ceramic tiles are used they are of low porosity. Porcelain is a good example and is also resistant to inclement weather. Compared with red-colored tiles, its water absorption capacity is lower.
Pleasant combination of tiles that leave a space for the finish with grass
Another point in its favor is the resistance to low temperatures. Cracks will not appear if the temperatures drop and just like the previous example is anti-slip. At the time of installation, experts recommend the use of flexible glue cement. Mud is another soil that is included in this group. It is perfect to reinforce the rustic aesthetics of the terraces.

It must be mentioned that for the terrace mud floors require some care. The stoneware is perhaps the most popular within this classification. All are made with materials of high strength and hardness. So that practically do not suffer damages before the inclemencies of the time. From a cost point of view they are among the most economical options for terraces.
The stone and the combined wood result in a cozy finish and full of warmth
Its wide availability in terms of colors and dissensus makes them adaptable to any style. It can be said that they are a perfect combination in terms of economics and style. Porcelain stoneware is located at a higher cost. Special for all outdoor flooring whether it is the terrace or another space. It is a more expensive variant than the previous one but there is a balance in terms of price quality.
The coffee table is the perfect contrast for this floor and exterior in gray
Both the passage of time and the changes of time do not create significant damage to other materials. For the terrace natural stone floors are equally special and elegant. If we have to recommend some would be the slate and quartzite. The first of these options is perfect given its insulating power. It has impermeability conditions that make it a very demanded material for the edges of swimming pools and the outside in general.

On the other hand the quartzite shows great resistance to changes in temperature. Their textures are very varied besides their tonalities. These types of stone withstand natural wear with great resistance. They are cleaned in a simple way and look great with any type of wall. The negative point is its thermal inertia.
Variation of floor in dark tone surrounded by sculptural elements and fire pit
If there are very high or low temperatures they remain cold or hot. So it is not advisable for an area where you have to walk barefoot. The vinyl tiles for the terrace floors and the design give an equally considerable resistance. They are made of rubber or plastic, the case of rubber is perfect for a terrace where children play.
Tiles in light tone matching with modern furniture and other clear accessories
The reasons are in its anti-slip and cushioning properties. The plastic ones can help us to isolate the water and the cold in an effective way. As a positive point we must highlight its installation through assembly. As a general rule, resin floors are a resistant and easy to install solution. Its availability for terrace floors and design adds a decorative value.

Resin floors add resistance to water, moisture and solar radiation. With these solutions we will not have to worry about the proliferation of fungi. If we do not have a lot of time for maintenance they are perfect. They do not require prior treatment. We can not close this list without mentioning the concrete floors.
Ideal for wood shapes with a geometric finish that enhances the natural look
To this type of floors for the terrace is precisely the mixture of arid materials and cement which gives it its firmness. In the design of the terrace concrete floors may require periodic cleaning. The reason is that it has a greater attraction to dust. The negative is the limitation that exists in everything related to their designs.

To use it in our terrace we must be very safe. Then it can be very expensive to replace it with another of the variants mentioned. Floors with polished cement are very fashionable. In addition to the terraces, it is common to see them in many spaces inside the houses. With a dye and polish with a special machine can be transformed in many ways.
In this case, stone and natural fabrics have a great decorative role
Adopting a contemporary and very interesting image. When it comes to continuous terraces and cement, maintenance and cleaning is easier. The cause is the absence of expansion joints. If in the design of the floor of the terrace we do not want to complicate ourselves in works we can use the floors of vinyl.

Its installation in the form of a kit makes them simple and very functional. Other wood imitation tiles, such as the composite case mentioned above, can make that impactful change to the terrace. We can install ourselves and are currently in fashion. Cut a zone of the terrace that is very busy you have to take into account the most resistant woods.
