Are you going to acquire a veranda but still wondering what type of flooring you want to install?

The floor of a veranda is no different from the floor of another living room in the house.

Will it is a summer veranda, a real kitchen because the current one is too small, a comfortable veranda used as a lounge for your moments of relaxation?

Choose a tile that is too thin and fragile like earthenware, more comfortable in-wall installation than on the floor. Ditto for the texture of the coating, be sure to choose it non-slip, so as to limit slipping and therefore falls.
