Before you decide on the ideal balcony floor, you should consider some key factors. Grade:
Circulation of persons
The flow of people circulating on the balcony must be analyzed. The higher the number of people per site, the more durable and durable the flooring needs to be.
One of the big factors that can restrict the choice of flooring is moisture. Balconies which are exposed to rain or otherwise must be provided with waterproof floors and, in particular, non-slip floors in order to avoid accidents. Therefore, smooth floors should be avoided.
If you have pets at home, you prefer that it’s easier to clean, less dusty and scratch resistant.

This will use your balcony? Is it a gourmet balcony with barbecue, private or just decorative? Think about how to define the best soil on the ground. If you want to spend long moments in this room, you should use warm floors where you can sit on the floor. Stop and think about it.
After reviewing the above topics, check the main types of balcony floors and their main features:
The ceramic floors are ideal for balconies and outdoor areas, whether covered or not. This is because of this type of floor is very durable and durable and has numerous color options and formats. Ceramic floors are among the cheapest on the market, with variations on the manufacturer and style of the floor. There are various possibilities of non-slip ceramic floor.
They are not easy in the sun, are easy to clean and do not require frequent maintenance. And if your porch also works as a garage, the ceramic floor is sturdy enough to come with the comics and goings of the car. Even if it has a grill, the ceramic floor is able to withstand the high temperatures.
However, it is important to check if the selected floor has thermal properties, as solar radiation tends to overheat the material. Another important task is to check the type of mortar used to fix the floor. If it is in a damp place.
The porcelain floor has very similar properties as the ceramic floor. It is, however, much more resistant. Another benefit of this type of flooring is the beauty of its pieces. The rectified finish gives the whole thing more uniformity and leaves the area more beautiful.
The porcelain stoneware tiles still have that look very similar to materials such as wood and stone. A good option for those who want to create a woody look on the balcony, without having to resort to real wood.
However, porcelain tiles are often more expensive than ceramic tiles.
Wood is therefore a floor option for balconies. The material is beautiful, charming, cozy and makes the environment more inviting. However, wood has many “pores” that can discourage anyone interested in using it on the porch.
Wood can easily red on contact with water and suffer from the proliferation of fungi and insects such as termites. In addition, the material wears in sunlight. All these problems can be solved by using waterproofing and protection products.
The floors are marble, granite and slate. They are both waterborne and water-repellent, they are both sluggish and exhausting. Marble and granite can therefore weigh in the bag, especially the marble, which is even more expensive.
These two stones are so cold. This is a very comfortable environment, especially in low temperature regions.
Slate is an excellent choice for those who want to combine durability, thermal comfort, easy cleaning and low price. The stone is also available in different colors, as well as marble and granite.
