Concrete is strong and steady, so it only makes sense that the latest stamped concrete trends would reflect this. Unlike jeans and music, stamped concrete doesn't change trends as quickly. Instead, what was popular several years ago is still popular today--but with a twist.
The biggest trend in stamped concrete currently is customization. Homeowners who install stamped concrete don't want a plain, boring gray slab. Instead, they want a beautiful and unique slab that they can be proud to show off, and they are not disappointed. Here are four ways stamped concrete contractors are making these dreams a reality.
Innovative Uses For Stamped Concrete
1. Hand Tooling
Today's concrete contractors provide superior customization to meet any homeowner's unique tastes. One way that they do this is through using custom hand tooling. While this method can be both costly and time consuming, it results in a beautiful design that can be custom tailored to the homeowner's needs and that is not easily replicated.
2. Color Blending
While concrete typically comes in earthy grays, reds, and browns, homeowners can choose pretty much any color, including pink, green or blue, for their stamped concrete projects. They can even choose multiple colors and have them mixed and blended together in a specific way to make a unique and remarkable design. This custom color blending ensures that a homeowner's concrete project is truly one of a kind.
3. Post Coloring
In addition to hand tooling, stamped concrete contractors can also achieve unique coloring effects by coloring the concrete after it has set, rather than before. This technique allows for more color combinations, greater control and additional color highlighting.
Homeowners who choose stamped concrete aren't limited to only what the concrete itself can do. They can even mix in additional materials for a look that sets their concrete apart from all others. Homeowners can choose add-ins for their sparkle and shine, for their unique texture, or for their sentimental value. The options are endless!
