When it comes to designing and constructing a verandah, choosing the right flooring can be a crucial decision. After all, the flooring you choose can have a significant impact on the overall look, feel and functionality of your verandah.

At Innovative Verandahs, we understand the importance of choosing the right flooring for your verandah and are happy to help guide you through the decision-making process. Before we look into the different types of flooring options available for your verandah, it’s essential to understand the importance of a site inspection. Prior to installing any flooring, it’s essential to check the stormwater and footing requirements of the site. As experienced builders, we can come in and look at the site before installing any flooring, ensuring that your verandah is built to last.

Ok, so now that is out of the way, let’s look at how to select the perfect floor!

1. Timber Decking

Timber decking is a popular choice for verandahs as it adds a warm and natural feel to the outdoor living area. It’s also durable, easy to maintain, and can be stained or painted to match your home’s color scheme. However, it’s essential to note that the structural design of your verandah will need to account for the additional weight of the decking so keep this in mind when thinking about timber decking.

2. Concrete

Concrete is a durable and low-maintenance option for a verandah. It’s also versatile and can be stamped or stained to create a variety of patterns and colors. The end result can be anything from industrial to sculptural when it has been installed. For concrete flooring, it is important to consider the size and placement of the concrete slab as it can impact the overall size and shape of your verandah.

3. Tiling

Tiling is a popular choice for verandahs as it’s durable, easy to clean, and comes in a range of colors and patterns. When selecting tiles, you must consider options that are slip-resistant and able to withstand exposure to the elements… after all, they will be outside!

4. Natural Stone

Natural stone is a beautiful and durable option for your verandah. It adds a touch of elegance and sophistication to an outdoor living area, with the ability to provide both a cool refinement or a warm and captivating visual. Natural stone is one of the more expensive flooring options, and will need more maintenance than other flooring options, but can you really put a price on beauty?

5. Pebbles or Gravel

Pebbles or gravel are an inexpensive option for verandah flooring as they provide good drainage and can be easily installed. For pebbles or gravel, you’ll need to consider how they feel under foot, with some options uncomfortable to walk on, so they may not be right for high traffic areas (or those wanting to enjoy their verandah without shoes on!).

Just like your verandah design, there are so many options to choose from for your flooring, each with their own benefits and challenges. Regardless of the flooring option you’d like to see in your outdoor living space, we recommend engaging our team to inspect the site so we can advise you when making these key decisions.

For example, if you’re considering timber decking, it’s best if our team comes in first and builds the roof as structurally we can’t bolt to the deck. Similarly, if you’re considering concrete, it’s important to consider the impact it may have on the size and shape of your verandah.

Whether you’re considering timber decking, concrete, tiling, natural stone, or gravel, our experienced team can guide you through the decision-making process, ensuring that you make an informed decision that meets your unique needs and budget.
