Tiles for a patio flooring idea are somewhat uncommon, but using the right kind of tile installed properly in the right climate zone, this could be a really cool option.

Now don’t get me wrong, these aren’t the boring old red or gray concrete block pavers of the past. The pavers I picked out for my patio floor are about eight inches square and are dyed and tumbled to give them a rugged and varied distressed look, much like natural stones have.
