Sunroom Flooring?

I currently have a sunroom deck with deck flooring. We are insulating the room including the floor and adding a single room heating and air conditioning unit. I will not have the room heated or cooled all year, just when we are in town. I don't like laminate or carpet and we do not want to add a lot of weight on to the deck, so tile is out. Any suggestions on flooring? Weather varies from the low teens to the 90s.

Got a picture?
Mostly interested in how the outside was done.
Anytime I've seen someone try to enclose what used to be an open deck and not remove the old decking first a few common issures come up.
The walls were not built even with the outside of the deack boards so water comes in under the walls.
Part of the deck was left open so not water comes in under the wall and the splach back can cause the sheathing to rot.
Air comes in under and through the open spaces between the board on the outside.
Deck boards tend to cup so your left with an uneven floor.
Decks are often built with no intentions of being enclosed so the joist and post are under sized.
Just to name a few issures.
Is this room totaly enclosed?
Ok so you named all the flooring you do not like, what type do you like?
