Outdoor entertainment areas hold a special place in our hearts. Once upon a time when we were focused on landscaping, outdoor entertaining areas opened our eyes to the construction side. Many projects later, one of our favorite things to discuss with these projects are choices in concrete finishing.
A few options we like to discuss:
Stamped Concrete: Stamped concrete is a popular choice for outdoor patios, walkways, and pool decks. It involves creating a pattern or texture on the concrete surface by pressing a stamp into the wet concrete.
Colored Concrete: Colored concrete is another popular option for outdoor entertaining. It involves adding color to the concrete mix, which can be used to create a variety of looks, from subtle earth tones to bright, bold hues.
Acid Staining: Acid staining is a technique that creates a unique, mottled look on concrete surfaces. The acid reacts with the concrete to create a variegated, marbled appearance that can be quite striking.
Ultimately, the best decorative concrete option for your outdoor entertaining area will depend on your individual style, budget, and needs. We enjoy reviewing these options with you and creating a specially tailored entertaining area.
