Balcony: Flooring - the 5 best
The balcony is the calm oasis of every apartment. Whether tiles, artificial turf or wood - the matching floor coverings invite you to feel good.
Artificial turf on the balcony - green and cheap
Artificial turf is only suitable for a covered and rain-protected balcony. The cheap and durable material is easy to lay. In addition, it has a pleasant feel and is therefore suitable for barefoot.
The only drawback: In the rain, the material absorbs moisture quickly, water can not drain. This can lead to mold or damage to the substrate. For balconies that are not protected against moisture, therefore, other floor coverings are advisable.
Plastic plates - good feel, low price
Plastic plates are particularly easy to lay and inexpensive available. Although the material is available in different colors, it is less appealing in appearance compared to other floor coverings. Longevity and a good feel, however, speak for the material.
Even water or dirt can drain through the tiles, so the flooring is particularly easy to clean and unproblematic.
Floor coverings with tiles
Who on a durable, water-repellent and easy-care Want to set balcony surface, is well-advised with tiles. Since tiles are permanently fixed to the substrate, laying should be done by a specialist. For rental apartments, a clarification of the installation with the landlord is also necessary.
Natural wood as a natural eye-catcher
Wooden planks or wooden tiles are particularly decorative and natural floor coverings for the balcony. Whether from bangkirai, oak, teak or ash - this surface is easy to care for and pleasant to the touch. A complex and costly installation by a specialist should be taken into account in the wooden planks, however. The laying of wood tiles, on the other hand, is less laborious and cost-effective.
The drainage of water is guaranteed in both variants: for planks, a suitable substructure is installed; Wood tiles have gaps that drain off excess water.
WPC - the alternative to natural wood
The so-called Wood Plastic Composite (WPC) is a good alternative to pure natural wood coverings. The material consists of wood fibers and plastic and is thus particularly durable and easy to care for. Similar to laminate flooring, the material looks confusingly similar to real wood.
Commercially WPC is available in the form of planks or tiles. In terms of water permeability, these are in no way inferior to their natural wood counterparts. On the contrary: WPC does not soak up with water.
