Another option, stamped concrete patio designs in combination with outdoor painting colors, is very similar to dying the material. Two differences are that stamped concrete patio paint can only be applied after the textile has been poured and set, and typically contain a weather proof finish to ensure they can withstand the outdoors. Another way to create a colored concrete patio is to stain the material.

If you have a raised patio you can even purchase and install precast steps with stamped concrete patterns to match those that you installed on the patio. Concrete patio stones and pavers are different from stamps in that they are single, prefabricated units that are laid down and interlock together to form a decorative surface that can be used immediately rather than waiting for it to dry. Some pavers also come in kits to help you with your designs and the installation process.

Patio staining is different from traditional wood deck painting in that it infuses into the concrete to create translucent tones, rather than settling on top to produce a solid and opaque finish. You can use this floor stain to create a variety of looks ranging from natural stone to polished granite, or even stained wood. Although cement stain colors come in a variety of colors, there are only two main types that can be used, including water-based acrylics and acid-based chemical stains.
