Flooring in a Non-Ventilated Revamped Enclosed Patio?

eldemilaNovember 30, 2011

Trying to figure out, besides ceramic tiles, what options would I have for putting down some new flooring in this "room." It was originally the patio and the previous owners closed it in but never put anything more than 4 windows - it's not under air (no heat, no a/c). Summer it's hot, winter it's cold. It's a concrete floor with the broken tile pieces inbedded in the concrete.

Was wondering if I put laminate or vinyl tiles/planks if either, or both, would buckle when it's hot? Wondering if sheet vinyl is my best bet?

I dont want to put a lot of money in this "room" as it's basically used for storage.

Thanks for any info. Searched the web but came up empty.

Vinyl will expand and contract too much under those conditions. You'd have buckling or gaps somewhre depending on the season. For a durable surface, tile or stained concrete is your best bet. For a softer surface, indoor outdoor carpet would be a good choice. It comes in a lot more colors than the old "green grass" look these days and some of them are even attractive. Check a local box store to see what they have on a roll. That would probably be your cheapest route as well. You can DIY it for around a dollar a foot.
