Is your backyard looking a little lackluster? A brand-new concrete patio will bring new life to any outdoor area. But we’re not talking about a plain, grey, boring concrete patio, though. At Speck USA, concrete is an art form. Once we know your #PatioGoals, we can customize the concrete to match your personal style. Need some ideas? Here’s some inspiration to help you get major backyard bragging rights.
Change Your Concrete Patio Finish
Polished Concrete Patio
The process of polishing concrete is highly technical and involves specialized equipment (in other words, this is not a DIY project). After pouring new concrete or repairing old concrete, your Speck USA contractor will grind and polish it until it shines, using diamond-infused “sandpaper.” The result is a slick, modern patio that will be the envy of all your neighbors.
Stained Concrete Patio
The method for staining concrete is similar to polishing it, except that you add color before sealing it. Plain concrete can be perceived as cold, but a little color will definitely warm up your space! With hundreds of color options, your patio can be part of your backyard design rather than being ignored.
Stamped Concrete Patio
A stamped patio gives the illusion of stone or brick pavers, especially when paired with the right stain. Red bricks, grey slate, or brown cobblestone on your patio will quickly take your backyard from “eh” to elegant.
Concrete Patio Enhancements
Patio Extensions and Walkways
Is your back porch nothing more than a small rectangle on the other side of your back door? How are you supposed to properly entertain in a space as small as a master closet? Consider extending your patio further into the yard or creating walkways to other concrete spaces, such as your pool deck, fire pit, barbeque pit, or al fresco dining area.
Fire Pits and Fireplaces
There’s no better way to enjoy a Des Moines concrete patio at night than by the light of a crackling fire. There are many fun things to do fireside with your family and friends. If you’re already making plans for a patio renovation, tack on this excellent addition before it’s too late.
Outdoor Bars or Countertops
The durability and easy maintenance of concrete make it a great choice for outdoor countertops or bar tops. It could be free-standing or attached to the outside of your house. Impress guests with your skills or use it as a buffet line. Think of all the ways you could use an outdoor bar, then start shopping for bar stools and make it happen!
