What Is The Best Balcony Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: August, 2020 - Modified: April, 2023

A balcony is such a great addition to any home or apartment complex. It provides a nice area to sit outside and enjoy some fresh air without totally being exposed to the elements. Or, a balcony is a great way to expand living and entertaining space for those who don’t have a huge garden or lawn. Balconies are often preferred over traditional decks when the desire to have access to sunshine, but also, some shelter or shade exists. 

When considering or designing a balcony or terrace, thinking of the floor covering ideas beyond traditional wood or concrete may seem overwhelming. You may be wondering what the best balcony flooring actually is. Greatmats has some outdoor flooring solutions for every design preference and price point that look and perform really well. 

Outdoor Patio Tiles for Balconies

Outdoor Patio Tiles for Balconies
Outdoor patio tile is an obvious balcony flooring solution. The tiles are made of PVC material, and they are really fast drying. The non slip surface texture makes this a safe wet area tile, and water will drain through quite quickly. Each 1x1 foot interlocking tile is lightweight and makes installation a breeze. Once in place, the tops remain consistently dry, which helps prevent the growth of mold and mildew. These tiles are suitable for virtually any weather conditions, and they have been UV treated. This floating balcony flooring is extremely low maintenance and easy to clean with a mop and household cleaner.

Rooftop Balcony Sterling Tiles

It works really well for home or commercial settings, as it is a high end product that is rated for living spaces with even the heaviest of outdoor furniture. 

Each tile is 2 inches thick and 2 x 2 feet in size. It is very easy to clean and maintain, as you simply damp mop with hot water and a neutral pH cleaner. It is made from recycled rubber buffings and crumb rubber from tires and is available in black, terra cotta, green, blue, gray, and brown. Border and corner ramp options are available.
