With stone deck tiles, installing a floor outdoors can be as easy as snapping together Lego pieces. Many natural stone tiles are mounted on plastic interlocking bases and can be laid without glue or grout on a surface that’s flat and clean.
Suitable for use on a patio or deck—or in a courtyard, mudroom, shed, or gazebo—stone deck tiles are often an inexpensive alternative to stone pavers (and DIYers can save on the cost of installation, as well).
We’ve rounded up 10 favorite stone deck tiles in materials that include marble, slate, and sandstone at price points from high to low (from architects’ favorites for high-traffic areas to easy-to-install beginners’ choices).
