Are you aware that concrete comes in far more colors than simple matte gray? If not, let our team at Creative Concrete, a New Brighton concrete company, introduce you to a wild world of countless possibilities! These days, concrete can be made in a variety of colors, from terra-cotta brown to rich brick-red to an understated-yet-rustic buff. Concrete can also be made to mimic anything from stone pavers to Belgian slate with an innovative stamping process. This type of imprinted concrete is known, fittingly, as stamped concrete.
Now that we’ve opened your eyes a bit to the possibilities of custom concrete, you may be wondering why you should bother personalizing your concrete. Why not just leave it gray?
3 Reasons to Personalize Your Concrete
Whether you’d like to go completely out of the box with your new concrete or are just looking for a subtle touch of style, there are many reasons to personalize your concrete. Here are just a few:
1. Gray doesn’t match every exterior. While it can be a solid choice for some houses and commercial buildings, plain, solid gray concrete doesn’t complement every exterior. Changing the color of your concrete allows you to create a pleasing color palette.
If you’re happy with the natural color of concrete but want to add a “wow” factor, we can imprint a molded image into the surface of the concrete as it dries. Stamped concrete comes in a variety of styles and is one of the most popular trends in both residential and commercial concrete. Some styles of stamped concrete are designed to mimic other materials, such as wood or European fan pavers.
2. Personalized concrete adds something extra. A plain old traditional concrete driveway or patio can certainly refresh your home or business and boost curb appeal, but adding a personal touch to the concrete really makes a statement. Like decorating the house when you first move in, personalized concrete can help make your home feel more like your home.
3. It provides both style and function. Solid gray concrete does its job just fine, but why not get something more from your concrete project? When you opt for personalized concrete, you’re investing in both function and style for your home or business.
