Concrete porches don’t have to be drab. With a bit of care and decoration, they can feel both clean and stylish. Incredibly versatile, this hardscape material can work with the exterior of almost any home, whether yours is traditional or modern. And while concrete can be covered with another material like brick or stone, don’t be afraid to embrace what you’ve got. While you search for concrete porch ideas to use on your own home, allow the following tips and photos to be your guide.


Play with the Design

There are a number of ways to spruce up a slab of concrete; painting it, staining it or stamping it are just a few possible methods. If you’re considering paint, you might opt for a darker shade of gray to give the space more definition. For a decorative design, apply a fresh coat of paint and then use a stencil to create a pattern. Another way to add a unique design to your front porch is with stamped concrete, which is pressed with a pattern while it’s still wet. With this method, it’s possible to make your hardscape look like brick, stone or even wood.

Staining is another way to create something more interesting than the flat gray color of cement. The difference between staining and painting is that stains are sprayed rather than directly rolled on like paint. They also penetrate the surface of the concrete, providing extra protection and a look with lots of depth.


Choose the Right Decor

Sometimes, all a makeover requires is a bit of decoration. One of the easiest concrete porch ideas is to lay down a colorful rug that will soften up the floor and offer plenty of visual contrast. Put out a couple of lounge chairs or a bench and you’ll have a cozy spot to sit back and relax. Another way to add color is with potted plants in decorative planters. Whether you choose a glossy blue ceramic pot or a chic black modern variety, having leafy plants and flowers on your porch will break up the monotony of cement.


Make Sure It Flows

Finally, one of the most important things you can do is to simply make sure your porch flows with the rest of your home, including the siding, front door and overall style of the house. Usually, the problem with concrete is that it can feel choppy or like it wasn’t really thought out. Make yours feel intentional by focusing on all the little details and trim work that surround it. For example, concrete porch steps with a rough edge look more natural, like stone. You might also consider lining your porch with brick or stone around the edges.

When it comes to your railing and awning, consider mixing metal and wood for a modern look. Or, soften up the utilitarian vibe with a wood-paneled porch covering topped with shingles or shakes. Either way, your concrete will be well-protected and the space is sure to feel warmer and more welcoming.
