Patio Surface Colors & Patterns
One of the unique attributes of concrete as a surface material is its ability to be colored and patterned. Rather than paying the expensive price of installing natural stone or similar materials, concrete can be textured to look almost identical. Imagine what you can do when you can color your patio slab to complement your home's siding. What pattern would you choose to add some detail to your patio? Below are links to resources to view color and pattern charts for your concrete patio.
The color of your concrete patio is an important part of creating an appealing outdoor retreat. Adding color is one of the simplest ways to enhance your patio. Be sure to choose a color that either complements your home or complements your surrounding landscape for the best effect. Neutral colors in browns or tans are most common. You can add depth by contrasting with a darker shade of the same color in a border or other feature. Use this concrete color chart from L.M.
