Since concrete is very versatile, there are many creative ways to personalize the material. If you’re looking for stamped concrete driveway ideas, check out our suggestions below to get you started.
Decorative or stamped concrete is an affordable way to beautify your driveway. Stamping flagstone design is more practical than pavers because unlike the latter, concrete does not settle or have gaps where weeds can grow. This means less time spent on maintenance on your part.
Best of all, concrete flagstone design can be customized through colors and textures. You can ask your contractor to come up with stamped concrete driveway patterns and ask them for further customization by adding these different elements. This way, your driveway will be unique and can be matched to your existing exterior design.
If you prefer stamped driveway designs, a linear stamped driveway might be more to your taste. This classic design involves adding lines along the borders or to segregate certain areas, giving your driveway a neat and classic look.
This design idea is a good option for big driveways. It will give your driveway character and prevent it from being too plain or boring. The same is true for garage floors. A stamped design will give the space character and a bit of style.
Ashlar slate pattern is a good alternative to linear designs. This is a good option if you prefer a more textured concrete driveway. It is similar to a brick pattern but each row is off-set by half the paver’s width.
But it does not stop with the pattern, you can further customize your driveway by adding texture to the concrete or by adding colors. This way your stamped concrete driveway can look like slate or natural stone.
This is another classic look for you to consider for your stamped driveway design. Brick patterns have been around for a long time. In the old days, roads were paved using bricks so the design has endured and is still being used today. This means, you can’t go wrong with a brick paver pattern.
But classic does not mean boring. There are many brick patterns to choose from like herringbone, basket weave, running bond and stacked bond to name a few.
If this isn’t enough you can color and add texture to further personalize the look of your stamped driveway.
If you prefer old word charm, then consider a European fan pattern for your driveway. We are familiar with this pattern because it circles many driveways here in our country.
Again, you don’t have to settle for just a simple fan pattern. Adding colors to the pattern can differentiate your driveway from the rest.
The cobblestone pattern is another stamped concrete driveway design that originated from the old world. The building material used was originally cobble-sized stones used to pave the roads. Fortunately there is no more need to look for cobble-sized stones thanks to the versatility of concrete since the look of cobblestones can now be replicated using concrete.
Paving companies will now stamp a cobblestone pattern of freshly poured concrete so tha you can enjoy the design without having to worry about loosened cobblestones or weeds growing between them.
There are many patterns to choose from such as random stone and brick. You can also color the concrete for more character.
