With warmer weather just around the corner, now is the perfect time to get your outdoor living space in ship shape for family gatherings, entertaining and just relaxing. Flowers Flooring recommends starting with a good base such as a porcelain tile then working on the furniture, plant pots and décor.
Porcelain tile for outdoor patios come in a wide variety of patterns and textures that resemble natural stone, brick, concrete, rock and even wood and look natural in an outdoor living space. Porcelain tiles are clay-based materials, but they are fired at extremely high temperatures over 1200 degrees Celsius, so unlike ceramic tile they are very hard, durable and non-porous. This makes them resistant to scratching.
They are also resistant to UV fading. Porcelain tile is perfect for North Carolina weather conditions, as it is engineered to be frost proof. Unlike ceramic tiles, porcelain tiles are impervious to water penetration; in other words it does not absorb water and withstands outdoor conditions.
Choose a Floor for Your Outdoor Living Space
Unlike natural stone and timber, porcelain tiles are non-porous. That simply means there are no little holes for dirt and grime to get trapped in when used as the flooring for an outdoor living space. In essence they are stain proof and require very little ongoing maintenance. This makes porcelain tile a very attractive outdoor tile, requiring an occasional sweep or clean with warm, soapy water.
Porcelain tiles come in a wide variety of finish from matte and semi-polished to gloss and textured. When selecting a tile for outdoor use, Flowers Flooring always recommends at least a matte finish. This means the surface of the tile will offer some slip-resistance. A textured surface provides greater slip-resistance, depending on how textured the surface is.
Porcelain tile really is the ideal flooring for outdoor living spaces.

Hardwood flooring can be installed many different ways, even on a wall – called a hardwood accent wall. Hardwood makes a stunning accent wall that will make your home the envy of the neighborhood. Creative accent walls create a visual interest and a focal point on an otherwise dull space.
“Hardwoods can be mixed to create a unique look. If you have a dark hardwood on the floor perhaps you want to go with something lighter on the walls. You can also use the same hardwood to create a seamless look,” says Catie Mullins, Flowers Flooring Sales Associate.
“We have a lot of customers inquiring about hardwood accent walls. It’s absolutely beautiful with the wide, hand-scraped hardwoods, but the possibilities are endless and completely depend on your specific style and home décor.”
There are some limitations to the types of walls hardwood can be attached to. Below is a list of things to keep in mind when considering a hardwood accent wall installation:
- Can’t install over walls on metal stud framing
- Can‘t be installed over exterior basement walls
- Can’t be installed over sloping walls
