How to Make Concrete Beautiful and Add Curb Appeal

Adding curb appeal to your home has never been a better idea than it is now. Decorative concrete in Salem can add value to your home.

Concrete in itself is a very durable material, but it is naturally a pretty industrial one. It can look rather bland without modification, but did you know there are a variety of options that allow you to get a unique and beautiful look out of your concrete? As home values in Oregon soar, there has never been a better time to add value to your home. A Salem concrete contractor can help add tremendous value to your home by adding new concrete features or renovating old ones. Here are some options for increasing the curb appeal of your project:

  • Concrete staining is a great option to consider. There are both acid-based and water-based staining solutions. This allows home or business owners to alter the color and perceived consistency of their concrete. We’re sure you’ve seen stained concrete projects before, but would advise you to look around at this gallery of stained concrete projects to get an idea of the possibilities staining concrete can provide.

  • Concrete stamping, as we have mentioned before, can also create a unique effect for your concrete. It can make your concrete look like bricks, cobblestone, wood, granite, or even something more custom than that!
  • Concrete overlays, like metallic coatings can create a perfect showroom or add a significant “wow” factor to a room. Take a look for yourself!
  • Other ideas, such as pouring a decorative concrete slab to use as a counter top can help create a durable and modern feeling kitchen.

These are just a few ideas on how you can boost the value of your home by working on a decorative concrete feature.
