Outdoor Event Flooring

Temporary structures are popular amongst many industries, but one thing people often don’t think about is the tent floor. Tent flooring is actually a vital part of your canopy’s aesthetic. You want something functional, of course, but you also want something that pairs well with the theme of your event to add a touch of flavor and create positive lasting impressions. 

Types of Party Tent Flooring 

Not sure what kind of flooring you need? To help you answer this question, American Tent has provided a list of the most popular types of modular tent flooring.

This includes:

  • Wood
  • Dance floor
  • Tile
  • Carpet
  • Rubber
  • Brick
  • Concrete
  • Artificial grass

Wood Tent Flooring 

Wood Tent Flooring

Wood is a perfect temporary floor covering for a party. Wooden flooring comes in different shades, finishes, and grain patterns, so you can find just the right match for you. A wood floor with a shiny finish adds elegance to your canopy for a professional appearance - ideal for upscale parties. On the other hand, a dull wooden floor offers comfort with a rustic feel that brings out the warm and happy feeling of a log cabin.

Whether dressed up or down, wood is a versatile and attractive tent floor opportunity that can be utilized for various applications.

Dance Floor

After taking their vows and making the commitment of eternal love, the bride and groom partake in their first dance - a moment that the special couple will remember forever. This requires adequate celebration and ample room to dance! A wooden dance floor can be used for outdoor wedding flooring to add a little pizazz and create a lovely place for friends and family to let loose!

The dance floor isn’t only good for dancing, it’s also a great photo op! You can get wooden floors in different colors as well as multicolored lights to create a picture-perfect party backdrop.

Tile Tent Flooring

Tile can be used as temporary flooring for an outdoor wedding. The tile is shiny and smooth, creating a classy feel. Not only will it bring grace to a wedding, but it will also bode well for work events. If your guests are going to be dressed up for your event, then your tent should be too. Upgrading to a tile floor gives your tent a shimmery base and can help set the mood of your gathering.

  • For wedding tent flooring, white tile brings a sense of elegance and purity
  • The black tile fits in perfectly for a black-tie affair.
  • Want to make things more exciting? Try a checkered pattern or colored tiles to match your occasion.

Carpet Tent Flooring

Carpet is probably one of the last things you think of when you imagine a commercial tent. While it may seem like an unusual choice for a temporary structure, the customization and comfort of the carpet are unmatched. There are plenty of color options, and you can choose any design that will fit best with the theme of your event. Carpet can simply be stapled or taped down throughout the tent, creating a safe and cozy space for all to enjoy.

Want to make your guests feel extra special? Roll out a red carpet! A red carpet will have everyone in attendance feeling like the star of the show.

Rubber Flooring

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but rubber flooring will never hurt you!

For liability reasons, that’s a joke, but the sentiment holds true; rubber flooring is a safe and protective choice.

The primary categories of rubber flooring are rubber pavers, rubber tiles, and rubber playground flooring. Any option that you choose is going to offer expert flexibility and shock absorbance, so if you’re going to take a digger, at least you can trust that you and the rubber flooring will come out scot-free. Because of the additional support and protection, durable rubber flooring is ideal for slip-resistant gym or activity flooring.

Brick Floor

Adding brick flooring in your tent can take you on a trip to the past. With its classic, old-fashioned appearance, brick is a picturesque material that will make you forget you’re even in a tent! Enjoy a cozy campfire surrounded by a brick patio, all while encompassing the feeling of 18th century New England. 


Concrete Tent Flooring

The location where you set up your canopy matters! If you want a concrete floor under your tent, the easiest thing to do is to set it up on the concrete to begin with. This is a safe bet for the farmers market, which is most often held right on the pavement and ideal for parking lots or other street events.

Concrete is a functional, affordable, and trendy base for your tent to stand on, and can be made easy by weighing the tent down with our Giffy Ballasts, so you don’t have to worry about staking into the concrete!

Artificial Grass

Artificial Grass Tent Flooring

Artificial grass has the same fresh look as real grass, minus the bugs and dirt! If you want to opt for a more natural look, the turf could be what you’re looking for. With a realistic feel, artificial grass is a long-lasting option that will bear weather much better than real grass.

Drought? No problem, artificial grass doesn’t need water. Flood? Never fear, the water will not cause any damage to your synthetic turf. In fact, artificial grass holds up well in any weather, making it a safe and trustworthy choice.

No Floor

While outdoor event flooring is a beautiful addition to your temporary structure, sometimes it isn’t necessary. The current ground you are standing on can be a perfectly suitable party tent flooring. As aforementioned, concrete can be used as flooring - if that’s where you choose to set up your canopy. You can also utilize natural grass as your flooring. Stake your tent into the grass and leave it as is, simple as that! Choosing to stick with the ground as your flooring works well if you are on a budget because it cuts out the cost of purchasing your own!
