DIY Hacks: Get Creative with Decorative Concrete Driveways

Often overlooked and typically underestimated, concrete has included an outstanding array of decorative options for driveways, restaurants and institutes. Decorative concrete is one of the most economical and reasonable ways to spruce up your home or workplace entrance. Especially favored by commercial establishments such as casinos, hotels, and malls, decorative concrete has also become a very attractive option for residential applications. Your concrete surfaces can be made to be aesthetically pleasing, unique and completely eye-catching works of art.

A driveway is one of the first things that guests will see when visiting your home. The quality of the products and supplies that are incorporated into the project will be the ultimate determination of how fantastic your driveways finished look is and the many years it will hold up. Xtreme Polishing Systems has a multitude of unique and reliable decorative solutions for making your driveways look like beautiful slabs of concrete art.

Concrete Dyes and Stains

Experimenting with color is absolutely recommended when upgrading your driveway. Coloring concrete can mimic the look of stone and other natural elements, while still being affordable to your pockets. When concrete is further enhanced by a dye or stain, a luxurious richness is presented on the surface. These products are designed to penetrate the concrete to create magnificent color tones and can be used for both interior and exterior applications. Stains and dyes are a great way to say goodbye to your grey and dull concrete driveway and create your own high-end decorative look that reflects any distinctive style.

Stamped Concrete

Stamped concrete is a great technique for adding a decorative element to your concrete patios, floors and driveways. Stamped concrete mostly resembles brick, slate, flagstone, cobblestone, tile or wood. Stamped concrete allows you to achieve various designs patterns making your driveway unique to the touch. Because stamped concrete is able to resemble other building materials, it is a less expensive alternative to other original materials such as brick, slate or stone.

Engraved or Etched Concrete

If you have an existing, plain concrete driveway and you want to give it a decorative flair and lasting makeover without replacing the whole driveway, your next best option is concrete engraving or etching. When you etch or engrave a concrete driveway you will use special tools and equipment to etch patterns and designs into the existing concrete surface. Engraving is a permanent treatment so you do not have to worry about it wearing away. You can further enhance these beautiful designs with concrete dyes and stains which will give you a truly spectacular and decorative finish.
