Many people think of a plain, rough square of grey concrete when they imagine a patio. But it’s possible to completely transform a patio or courtyard into an exciting living space from the ground up, and it all starts with customized concrete.
Of course, plain concrete is a classic look that many people may be satisfied with, but you can create an atmosphere of a villa on your patio with stamped concrete, which could give the impression of tiles. Or, opt for a brick or cobblestone appearance with a different stamp. Next, choose a custom concrete ready mix with integrated color for a permanent terra cotta brown or vibrant blues and golds. Finally, leave a rough surface for character or polish it so smooth, your guests will never know that they are walking upon humble concrete.
