Stone is an excellent choice for outdoor floors. But when choosing the right stone flooring, certain practical considerations have to be kept in mind:

  • Outdoor floors will become wet, especially in areas which are liable to rain, constant drizzles and mist. Hence the stone flooring should not pose a slip hazard. In most cases this rules out glazed stone floors which become slippery when wet.
  • Maintenance is another aspect to consider for outdoor stone flooring. The selected stone floors must be durable, designed for high traffic, able to withstand wear and tear and should work well with outdoor furniture. If should be able to endure weather changes without fading in sunlight. If used in a barbecue area a quality penetrating floor sealer is recommended against spillage and staining.

Many types of natural stone flooring including flagstone and limestone meet the above criteria since it is durable and impervious to harsh weather, sun and water. Be sure to stop by your local flooring store as they may be able to provide specific outdoor stone floor type recommendations that will work best in your climate and area.

Flagstone is also a wonderful choice for outdoor flooring. It is a type of sedimentary rock that is formed in layers which can easily be split into flat slabs. Flagstone has been a natural flooring choice for centuries. Flagstone pavers are often used for driveways, porches, and walkways.

Flagstone is easy to maintain and looks attractive. If desired, under floor heating or cooling systems can be installed to use the radiant thermal properties of the floor in summer or winter. Flagstone flooring requires to be sealed to prevent staining and water leaching through and damaging the sub–flooring.

Limestone is another good option for outdoor stone floors that could be fine–ground to a high–sheen or left slightly rough with a matte finish for slip–resistance. It comes in a range of colors that include grays, blues, greens, browns, reds, yellows and cream.
