Stamped concrete, commonly referred to as patterned concrete or imprinted concrete, is concrete that is designed to resemble brick, slate, flagstone, stone, tile and even wood.
There are many options when it comes to concrete pattern, concrete colors, and the cost of stamped concrete.
The choice of stamped concrete is becoming more popular and frequent.
With the multitude of design options possible with concrete, zeroing in on a specific pattern and color scheme can be quite a challenge, but well worth your time and effort.
Remember, stamped concrete will last a long time and be a highly visible architectural element of your home or business, so it’s important to choose a look that harmonizes with the setting and will still appeal to you 10 years from now and beyond (or to a potential buyer when you sell your property).
Design ideas and tips:
- Look at other stamped concrete installations in your neighborhood to pinpoint the patterns and color combinations that appeal to you most. You can also find stunning photos of stamped concrete in this web page.
- Get inspiration from your surrounding landscape and home’s architectural style. For example, if your house has a brick exterior, consider echoing that theme in the stamped concrete, whether in a simple brick-patterned border or the entire driveway. Choose color tones that complement the roof, exterior facade and other structural elements of your home—or for indoor installations, the walls and interior design scheme.
- Attend local home expos or seminars to view different ideas. Often they have design centers displaying samples of the stamp patterns and color selections they offer.
