Great Looking Perth Patio Floor Options

Perth outdoor patio flooring

Not too many Perth home owners would allow a new patio area with an unfinished floor. Here are some patio floor materials to consider:

Tiles: Wooden deck tiles are easy to install with a snap- and click-together system. They usually come pre-finished but need oiling once or twice a year.

Tiles also come in granite, slate and stone.

Bathroom-style tiles make a deliciously cool Perth patio floor to walk on in a the hot summer, though beware of the potential slip hazard.

Concrete: Immensely durable, concrete flooring can be coloured, stamped, stained, stenciled and more. Attractive aggregates can be set into the slab such as pebbles and shells. The finish can be absolutely smooth or with a grip for safety.

Pavers: Pavers come in diverse materials such as concrete, sandstone and slate. They come in many shapes and sizes. They are easy to fit to the shape of your patio floor, and can be added onto at a later date. Maintenance is minimal and if a paver is damaged it can be spot-replaced.

Brick: Like pavers, bricks can be fitted to any shape and are tremendously durable.

Timber: Timber decking is a great option for the raised Perth outdoor patio. It can fit any house design and looks attractively natural. It requires more maintenance than pavers, tiles or concrete because it needs sealing.

Marble: A marble patio floor is the ultimate luxury. Cool, smooth, exquisite, durable.

When it comes to deciding upon which of the above Perth patio floor materials you ultimately choose, you will need to first consider a number of factors including:

  • Practical – if your Perth patio area is elevated then usually certain material types would be preferable e.g. timber.
  • Safety – Non slip is an important factor, especially in winter or around pool or spa areas.
  • Maintenance – Some Perth patio flooring options have higher maintenance costs than others.
  • Price – There can be a large difference in cost between the various Perth patio materials and cost of laying the floor. Go ahead and get a number of quotes from the many Perth flooring merchants and tradespeople.

There is the initial cost of laying the patio floor for your Perth home or investment property, but your investment will last for many years, especially with a little cleaning maintenance. A suitable patio floor will certainly enhance the use and look of your Perth patio area.

Perth Outdoor Patios: An Escape with Hidden Value

There is no doubt that “getting outdoors” allows you to unwind and relax, especially after a long work day! Not only can you escape the realities of everyday responsibilities and chores, you can enjoy some of “me” time all with the help of a Perth outdoor patio.

And the warmer weather in Perth lends to an outdoor lifestyle.

Besides the benefit of having an area for personal or social time, a outdoor patio will of course add value to your Perth home (providing it is of good quality and design).

Relaxing in an outdoor Perth patio

From a financial point-of-view, an outdoor Perth patio provides a pleasant living area that does not require any heating or air conditioning (besides say a fan or a gas heater in winter). A patio can be easily maintained all year long.

Some practical tips for choosing a Perth patio design include:
– Making the structure proportional to your home and front or backyard
– Ensure it provides a flow that connects the rest of your home in a cohesive manner
– Choosing a colour scheme and patio roof style that goes well with your existing house design and character

By adding little “extras” such as patio furniture, appropriate flooring or seasonal enclosures, you can create a custom space that is comfortable and provides additional value to your Perth home.
