Grey, uninteresting, smooth, rough, simple, plain. These words describe concrete, or at least they describe what most people think of concrete. Most people don’t know that concrete can be a beautiful commercial paving product. So much so that it can be a major component in creating a desirable and welcoming ambiance. Many people have probably already seen the many different forms of decorative concrete out in the wild and didn’t even realize it.
Concrete has become the chameleon of commercial paving products. It can be made to look like bricks. Not just grey bricks, but almost any color bricks you can think of. They can be little bricks or big bricks. Simple patterns or complex layouts that take a fraction of the time to install compared to normal bricks.
Decorative concrete can look like marbled rock that is great for entryways, patios, and around pools. Even countertops made from concrete are gaining in popularity. It can even look like rough cut stone. Almost any kind of surface you can imagine can be made with concrete.
What about wood color and texture? Yup, that too. The great thing about decorative concrete is that it can be textured and dyed to give the appearance of these other materials at a fraction of the cost of the original. Not only that, but it has the durability of concrete which ensures a great lifespan.
Talk to your contractor that specializes in decorative concrete and explore the endless possibilities that await your perusal. Create a space that has a jaw dropping ambiance that inspires and impresses, but saves you money and has more durability than other options. Stop using boring words to describe concrete. It can be beautiful if you want it to be. Concrete has a new face and is ready to be utilized in any of your commercial property projects.
