Updating your home's patio to create a beautiful outdoor living space is a popular home improvement project for many Australian homeowners. It's a relatively inexpensive and quick project to complete but it can have a big impact on the enjoyment you get from your home and will also add value.
Deciding what surface to put over the top of a dull concrete slab is one of the most important choices in creating a beautiful and stylish outdoor living space. If you don't have a huge budget, you might be worried that you won't be able to achieve the look you want with your available funds. Fortunately, there are many attractive, durable and budget-friendly options available, and here are two of the best.
1. Concrete tiles
Concrete tiles are made from preformed concrete that is then installed on your concrete slab in the same way as regular tiles are. They're a cheap, simple and affordable option and they also look fantastic. Their contemporary, edgy and minimalist look is a popular choice for many home builders and interior designers.
Concrete tiles also provide you with a wide range of looks to choose from. They come in a variety of sizes, including the large square tiles that are currently in style. They can also be coloured to your specifications or replicate the look of natural stone such as granite, sandstone and marble.
2. Vinyl planks
If you love the look of timber on a patio floor surface but can't afford the high cost of hardwood, then vinyl planks are an excellent alternative. Vinyl planks are a lightweight yet sturdy material that costs a fraction of the price of real timber planks and are fast and easy to install. They're also maintenance free and won't require sanding, staining or waterproofing to keep them looking great.
Vinyl planks are made to include a realistic looking grain that replicates the surface of real timber. They come in a huge range of colours and textures and recreate the look of popular timbers such as oak and gum varieties. Good quality vinyl planks are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing and will make a stylish and timeless addition to your patio.
With one of these two affordable yet beautiful patio floor options, you'll be able to transform your boring concrete patio into a stunning and modern space. Contact your local concrete tile and vinyl plank suppliers to find out more about these excellent products.
