There it is a slab of dark, bare concrete as you walk out the back door. How do you turn it into a welcoming outdoor accent?
Give it some Furnish
Creating spot homeowners would like to sit back and relax. Bring in blues or greens, a couch, and bright fabrics. To complete the look add throw pillows.
Add a Mat
By covering up the cement with a weather-resistant outdoor blanket you can give it a cozier feel.
Make a Focus Point
Firepits are pleasures of the crowd. Bring one in to improve the space, look, and show the concrete slab as an entertainment venue.
Flare it up
To create a relaxing evening atmosphere, warm up the room with lighting. If there is an overhead pergola or canopy, string a set of clear lights into the top for an inviting glow. To set off summer lovin’ vibes, you can also add solar lights to the perimeter of the concrete slab or tiki torches.
Suit it up with plants
Plants and flowers may make even the most dreary of concrete slabs seem more inviting. Put in containers of vibrant flowers around the walls, or find ways to keep your mind off the ground by showcasing a fashionable vertical garden that catches your attention.
Imprint and Stain
Consider giving up an updated look to the material. The stamped concrete mimics pavers below. A paint and stain coat can transform a concrete slab in an instant.
