How to know that is the best floor for my terrace?

It is important that before buying the materials to remodel your terrace; you define what style you want it to have. For this you must first define what activities you prefer to do there.

Ask yourself if the use you will give it is for gardening, to cook barbecues; to exercise or to read and relax. Depending on the answer you will be able to identify which style is the right one for your terrace.

Once you are clear about which style is best for your terrace; it is time to choose the floors that will serve as coating for the surfaces. We recommend you opt for marble-type, stone-type or wood-type ceramic tiles, since they are the ones with the most natural appearance.

Generally, the floors are exposed to the elements. This means that they will permanently receive the sun’s rays or rainwater. That is why it is very important that the floors you choose are resistant to moisture and are manufactured for these climatic conditions.

Size of your terrace

If the terrace or patio is small, we recommend that you apply the coating strategically on one or two prominent walls and on the remaining walls you decide on a much more neutral finish, for example completely painting the surface.

In addition to giving beauty and change to your home, all remodeling must be functional and generate security for the inhabitants of the house. That is why we recommend that you make sure that the floors of your patio or terrace are non-slip; in this way you will avoid accidents if they are wet.

Make this a place to enjoy the outdoors, relax and refresh your home.

Choosing hardwood floor color can create a stunning addition. Wood flooring is a traditional flooring alternative for every homeowner; installers and interior designers. Its a cliché that you wont ever go wrong when you install hardwood floor.

Whatever you have in mind for your interior design; its impossible not to find the hardwood floor color that suits your style and taste; considering the endless wide selection of stains and finishing to bring out the desired color.

Here are tips on choosing hardwood floor color to keep you at the right side of your interior design project.

Tips that you must apply of choosing floor color:

  • Complementing Color: Choose the hardwood floor color that goes along with the overall interior design palette. Do this by choosing the largest interior architectural features. These could be the fireplace, wooden stairs, cabinetry, etc. Find a color that simply complements with that specific large aspect.

 

  • Color Variation vs: Consistency. Color variation on the surface of the wood floor is just natural; even the same wood floor species may look differently. By having natural oil finish; the color variation on its surface can be pretty apparent. Having the floorboard stained will create a monochromatic look to its design while minimizing the visibility of any color variation. If uniformity concerns you; then choose stain floorboards for your interior. Modern contemporary styles often use the naturally oil finished planks while the stained floorboards are known for traditional architectural design.

Samples to compare and choosing

  • Light Colored vs. Dark Colored Stain. In choosing hardwood floor color; take into consideration the amount of interior space. Light colored stain is recommended for smaller space while dark color stained is ideal for large spaces. Using light colored stained floorboards creates an illusion of more spacious and airy feel in any interior. Having dark colored stained planks work well in an interior that has a lot of light and are sought after for modern and chic interior or urban condos.

 

  • Bring home floor samples to compare and decide which one works along well with the walls and woodwork. Check which one looks well with furniture and adjoining floors; in broad daylight and evening artificial light. Also, get a feel of each floor sample the moment you enter the room.

Take note that you can have endless of possibilities for hardwood floor colors considering the wide-range selection; of stains and finishes on the floorboards. Taking into consideration numerous factors before coming up with a decision is better; than randomly choosing the hardwood floor color that you fancy. After all; the result should be pleasing in your eyes and not otherwise.
