Patio Flooring Options

Summer is here and now more than ever homeowners in the Albuquerque area are enjoying time at home outdoors! This is the time of year when it’s perfect to have your deck and patio looking great. If you’re considering adding in a patio to your backyard design look no further than the many varieties of natural stone and tile available at the Poulin Design Center here in Albuquerque!


If you like to have options then slate could be perfect for you. Slate is a popular patio flooring option for a reason.  Slate comes in browns, greys and even blues.  You can choose a uniform color and shape for your tiles or you can opt to have various tile sizes installed in a pattern.  If you’re going for a more earthy vibe on your patio you may want to consider natural cut slate instead of choosing slate in square tile form. Slate tile will help you tame your backyard using natural materials to help your patio feel like an intentional extension of your home.


The romantic and classic patios of Europe can be yours in your very own home.  The bright, cheerful color of travertine will help to brighten up your patio and create a beautiful, neutral tone to build the rest of your design.  You may wish to have your patio stone sealed to help provide additional traction and protection for the tiles.

Porcelain and Ceramic Tile

If you think porcelain and ceramic tiles can only be installed in bathrooms, think again!  Porcelain tiles are made to mimic the appearance of other natural stone types and can make an ideal and slightly more affordable patio flooring option. It’s best to see and feel the patio flooring options out there before choosing which type is right for your home.

If you’re ready to make your patio the spot to entertain on summer evenings call the experts at the Poulin Design Center!  We’ll set up a complimentary design consultation so that you can find the perfect patio flooring for your Albuquerque home.
