Refurbish Existing Concrete

Whether it is an outdoor cooking area or patio, driveway or sidewalk, there are many options to bring to life that dull looking concrete to life. Some of the more typical methods of staining are acid-based chemical stains or water-based acrylic stains. The beauty of this option is that you can use it on either new or existing concrete areas.

Use it on Your Fireplace

If making an entire wall of concrete is too much for you, there is a more subtle option. You can make your fireplace concrete. Using a concrete surround on your fireplace can create a beautiful accent piece in your house. People spend a lot of time around a fireplace, so why not make it be something that you enjoy looking at. Just find the style and color that you’re looking for and put it all together. You’ll have an accent piece that you can’t take your eyes off of.

Use it on Your Counter or Island

Concrete counters are also a huge trend at the moment. Using concrete as a counter is something people love because concrete is durable and usually cost-effective, and now more than ever, it looks good too. Having a concrete countertop can also be a beautiful way to decorate your kitchen and make it look unique. You can even take it a step further, and instead of having just your counter be concrete, you can make your entire island concrete. It would be a great centerpiece to have in your kitchen, and you wouldn’t have to look into repairs for it for a long time.
