A concrete driveway is one of the most common types of driveways in the United States because they are sturdy and add a simple look to your home, however they can also be decorated to attain more elaborate styles. Concrete is a great material to use to pave your driveway because it is durable and long lasting. If you are on a budget the better choice of material is using tar because the cost of asphalt driveways is on the inexpensive side. However, the money you spend on concrete will be worth your while as it will last for a long time if well maintained. For those who would like to add a little style to their driveway, decorative concrete can be used which utilizes staining, painting, stamping and polishing.

Using stamped concrete, or concrete that is colored, patterned, or textured, can also add more style to the area. This type of concrete is made to resemble other materials while maintaining the durability of concrete and has a base color added to the mix, as well as an accent color and then the bricks or pieces are stamped with a texture or pattern on top. This type of concrete can make your driveway look like it is paved with brick or various types of stone, adding a beautiful old fashioned look to your home. This is also a great addition to concrete patios because stamped makes it durable enough to hold up against everyday traffic and the wear and tear of outdoor use.

Stone driveways are another option for you to choose from when designing the layout of your yard. You can use a variety of stone for the driveway including flagstone, cobblestone, gravel, or stamped concrete. How to pave a driveway will depend on the type of material used because their installation processes vary. Staining your concrete can add both color and design to the surface, depending on the type of stain you use and how you apply it. The stain reacts with the concrete to form a marble like pattern on your driveway which can be enhanced by rubbing the mixture on with a cloth or towel.

More solid stains can be achieved by using a roller or brush, however you will still get a small marble like pattern. Another great way to add color to your concrete flooring is to paint it. Paint is a great addition to concrete floors inside the home to prevent damage from harmful weather conditions. Driveway paint ideas will add a solid color to your floor and you can achieve any type of coverage by adding more layers. After painting or staining it is a good idea to add a thin layer of sealant to protect the surface and ensure that your floor is sealed from damage. This sealant can also be added to concrete driveways to protect it from damage and should be reapplied every few years to maintain a beautiful surface.
