Stamped Concrete Patio Pictures

stamped concrete patio

We've posted articles about concrete patios before (like this one), and as a result many THI followers have expressed interest in seeing what the end result would look like if they either build a stamped patio from scratch, or placed a new stamped concrete surface over their existing patio.

The facts are that it is much easier to produce a new stamped concrete patio than it is to place a newly stamped concrete pattern on top of an existing patio, however this is a detailed topic so today I'm just going to show you the end results regardless of the starting point.

Most of the time, the finished product many are looking for is a type of faux stone, paved or tiled finish. That is that you press the concrete into shapes that either quite accurately, or somewhat loosely, look like stone masonry or a tiled surface. Sometimes you will also 'color' the pressed lines to add emphasis - this resembles the grout that would usually be placed between stones or tiles.

This first one does quite a nice job of representing a terracotta paving effect:

A variation of the paver effect employing complementary faux paver colors and contrasting shapes to form a boundary:

Here we have a nice marble effect:

The next example carries the theme all the way up the steps - in my opinion this makes the overall effect less convincing:

Here we have a tiled effect - far more convincing when continued up the steps:
