Decorative concrete is an expensive and durable construction medium, which is why it is such a popular choice for everything from foundations and driveways to patios and pool surrounds. However, that doesn’t mean the dull gray of fresh concrete is your only design choice. Today’s technology means that while concrete remains a great functional choice, it is also a blank canvas for your personal design expression.
Decorative Concrete Options
While there are a myriad of options for making your concrete stand out as a design statement in your space, you may want the exact opposite, and that is a design choice as well. Existing or new concrete additions can be stained to blend in with your home’s color scheme to create a seamless look that accentuates your design without drawing attention to itself.
While blending in may be the choice of some, other homeowners want to stand out. Your concrete patio, pathway, porch, or pool surround can also be the center attraction. Scoring and staining concrete creates color and texture that can mimic many other materials, such as brick, flagstone, and tile. If you can dream it, a great concrete designer and concrete artisans can create it.
Why Not DIY?
Sure, there are plenty of YouTube videos that can teach you how to do almost anything. However, like everything else, practice makes perfect. You could spend hours watching videos and invest in the necessary tools to do the job, but you still wouldn’t have the design and craftsmanship that comes with years of experience. With the affordability of decorative concrete, experienced artisans can make your vision come to life, and all you have to do is enjoy the admiration of your friends, family, and neighbors when the project is complete.
