Decorative concrete can add a unique and distinguished look to any décor. With the durability and customization possibilities of concrete, anyone can create a space that is stylish yet capable of withstanding continued traffic and even harsh weather conditions.
But not all decorative concrete is right for every space. So before you start pouring, take some time to think about exactly what type of decorative concrete design is right for you and your home. Here are some factors to consider.
Does it Fit Your House?
Probably the biggest aspect to consider before installation is what design fits your existing home. If your home has a small, country look to it, then consider Rustic Concrete Wood, which brings the look of real hardwood floors to durable concrete. If your home is brick, you can do stenciled concrete that compliments the look of brick yet can be installed much cheaper than the real thing. Each home is different, so look for the pattern, colors, and designs that fit your home to get the best possible look.
Does it Meet Your Needs?
Just like choosing a design that fits your house, it’s also a good idea choose the design and material that meets your needs. If your area is prone to heavy rain fall or other water damage, consider a Graniflex, a textured resurfacing system that is also waterproof to protect your concrete. If you have an area that has high traffic and needs it to be anti-skid, then add texture to your concrete to make a great looking floor that is also safe.
Does it Complement Your House?
Considering designs and colors that match your house is always good, but don’t expect perfection. Some house designs are just too intricate to completely copy. In this case, look at designs that complement your home’s style and color. An intricate brick design can be complemented by the right stenciled pattern or stained concrete without copying the exact pattern.
