How to style your concrete to improve curb appeal

The outside of a home is the first thing people see, and good curb appeal will increase property value. Concrete around your home’s exterior can be used to improve aesthetics. The right concrete contractor can provide options and attractive concrete designs that will make your home stand out in the neighbourhood.

MCI Contracting in Edmonton shares how to improve curb appeal with concrete:

Patterns and textures can help your driveway stand out

Curb appeal and aesthetics are the biggest selling features of decorative concrete. Stamped concrete is when a design or texture is pressed into the concrete after the installer pours it. It can mimic the look of paver stones, among several other designs. If you want the look of a stone or tile driveway, this is the best option. It adds the pattern without laying stones piece by piece. In addition, is that there are no cracks in the concrete for weeds to grow or water to penetrate.

Aggregate can add style

Aggregate is the granular material in a concrete mixture, like gravel or crushed stone. Using this as a design option is an economical way to give your concrete a beautiful look. It’s a fairly straightforward process to achieve and can be done during the installation. After the concrete is laid, the top layer can be removed by spraying a chemical on top and then washing it. If you want to get really creative, you add decorative crushed glass or other materials to your aggregate concrete.

Get a specific look with colours and designs

A trend right now is to have a natural look when it comes to concrete. Colour layering can give this look instead of having a solid and uniform grey colour. In addition, using embedded designs is a great way to give existing concrete an updated look. For example, you can add lines, a pattern, or other designs to your existing concrete driveway or patio.
