New Flooring on the Patio



Happy Spring! 

I'm so glad to finally have warm temps again. Spring always puts me in the mood for projects! I have been wanting to do something with my ugly painted and chipped concrete patio for several years. I really didn't know what I wanted so I set out on a mission and finally settled on this wood look tile. It went right over the concrete just as you would install inside. I don't have a clue how to tile so I hired someone to do this. This tile is porcelain and was recommended for outdoor use. It is thick and has ridges/texture so it will not be slick and is frost resistant. The brand is Florim USA and the color is Santa Monica if you are interested. I bought it locally at a place called Acme Brick. This tile would be great inside too in any room. I am loving it! 

As always, the patio is very colorful with flowers, pillows, and cushions. It feels like a little room out here now with the new floor!

I have included a few before pics at the bottom so you can see what it looked like before.

This looks fantastic! Does this get slippery at all when wet?

I noticed this was laid in 2016 - I was curious how it is holding up after a couple of years? We are looking at covering our concrete slab porch with some pavers but I love the wood look! We live in Reno where it is mostly dry but we do get cold and wet winters. What is the climate like where you're at?
