Picking the right floor in the backyard can involve setting up a permanent outdoor seating area on a deck or patio, creating a playground for the kids, building a basketball court for games, or laying out a temporary backyard flooring for a wedding and dance reception.
With backyard flooring, installers can choose among a variety of colors and materials, all of which help to carry the great looking theme they’re developing throughout the area. With the right flooring options available at a low cost per square foot of coverage area, customers can create a look that fully reflects their desires for the space.
What Are Some Cool Rubber Outdoor Flooring Designs?When creating an area in the backyard that needs to stand up to harsh weather, allowing it to continue looking great over a long period of time, while also providing a bit of cushioning, rubber backyard flooring is a great choice.
Rubber is less expensive than many other outdoor tiles, and it has quite a few advantages, including a cushioned surface to help kids avoid injuries if they fall in a play area. Rubber does not suffer damage easily when exposed to constant sun either.
Even though people may think of rubber flooring as only available in a boring black, this is not the case. Multiple color options are possible in rubber floors for outdoor use, providing just the right look for any design.
These tiles are extremely thick, measuring 2.75 inches, which gives them an impressive level of cushioning. They have a 6-foot ASTM fall height rating, which makes them safe to use under many types of climbing equipment on the playground.
What Backyard Flooring Is Available with Drainage Holes?For backyard areas that receive quite a bit of rain or that will be near a pool, a perforated tile allows the water to drain away, rather than pooling on the surface of the flooring. This ability to drain the water away reduces slipping hazards.
When desiring a cool looking type of floor for the backyard, perforated tiles made of polypropylene plastic and PVC plastic work well, as many of these tiles offer bright colors.
