CONCRETE DRIVEWAYS: MODERN DESIGNS AND BENEFITS
There used to be two things you could promise about a concrete driveway—it’ll be gray, and it’ll crack. Well, times change and so do truisms. Today, concrete driveway construction embraces a wide array of choices in design including patterns, colors, and finishes.
Driveways no longer need to be flat, boring slabs of gray. Shapes, colors, and textures can be incorporated to compliment the style of a home and its landscaping.
Geometrical patterns with straight lines and sharp corners blend well with modern and industrial designs while organic curves can evoke the serenity of an Asian garden. Stamped patterns with warm stains can replicate the look of a Mediterranean stone path or the cobblestone pavement of the Old World.
Sand-colored, brush-textured concrete gives a tropical, oceanside feel, while brick-stamped and colored concrete adds an extra touch of authenticity and nostalgia to traditional home designs.
The versatility of modern concrete products makes them adaptable to almost any design challenge. And it’s easy to maintain for long life as well as being one of the more sustainable choices in building materials.
