Walkways are a part of many homes that too many homeowners tend to forget. While many pay great attention to their basement, pool deck, garage floor, and even their driveway, some tend to forget the hidden potential of designing their concrete walkways. Too many homeowners treat their walkways like common sidewalks instead of a blank canvas that can complement the rest of their homes.
A well-designed walkway can really bring a design together and bridge the area between your driveway and porch. Designing your walkway is a good way to increase the aesthetic appeal of your house without doing an entire remodel.
When you’re looking to update your walkway to fit the look of your home, you know there are many options to choose from. One option that is gaining popularity in homes around the country is using natural stone as a walkway material. Natural stone has an aesthetic beauty that more and more homeowners are finding desirable.
But while natural stone is a visually stunning material and brings a natural look to any space, it has its fair share of drawbacks. Natural stone is a costly walkway material, costing anywhere from $10-$25 per square foot. Using stone for your walkway may look great, but the price tag may not.
But what if you want the look of natural stone without the high cost? The good news is you can with stenciled concrete. Stenciled concrete can give any homeowner the high-end look of natural stone (as well as other materials like brick, quartz, or granite tile) with the added durability of concrete. By using stenciled concrete, your walkway can have the look of stone without the high cost of installation or replacement all while giving you the same desired look. If you want a high-quality walkway material that looks like natural stone but doesn’t cost like it, stenciled concrete is a great option to consider.
