DIY Patio Project: Laying Outdoor Deck Tiles – IKEA Home Tour


Looking to update your outdoor patio on a budget? All you need is this IKEA Home Tour Squad how-to video, some RUNNEN outdoor floor decking, and about an hour out of your day. RUNNEN deck tiles are easy to install, they come in plastic or wood, and you don’t need any tools. Here the Squad shares some simple installation instructions:

1. Measure the length and width of your space. Multiply them to figure out the square footage and number of tiles you’ll need.
2. Make an IKEA run for the decking.
3. Lay the pieces out creating a herringbone pattern. They simply snap together — it’s that easy!
4. Top it off with some furniture and accessories, and voilà — you have a beautiful outdoor living space.

Oh, and by the way, RUNNEN decking is weather-resistant and easy to care for. The tiles can be cut if you need to fit them around a corner or a pole. Plus, you can easily take the decking apart and put it back together if you want to clean the floor underneath!
