Concrete Patio Designs
That Make You Say Wow

When I get asked about concrete patio designs by a homeowner or a customer they usually ask me what looks best or what do you think I should do?

Both, very good questions!

But difficult for me to answer because what looks good to me may not look good to you.

Even though I've installed 100's of concrete patios and many of them with stone, slate, cobble or tile patterns, it's hard for me to know which design will give you that "wow" factor.

What kind of patio designs are there?

Above, you'll see some pretty simple designs for concrete patios we've done over the years.

All of these are stamped concrete patios with designs that include ashlar slate, stone texture, cobblestone and tile.

The most popular patio design we install is ashlar slate. It goes well with most landscapes and looks really good in a variety of colors.

You can check out some more stamping patterns here.


How decorative can a patio be?

A concrete patio can be as decorative as your imagination allows you to be!

This one has multiple curves, a stone pattern, a border design and two sets of concrete steps.  Wow!

This front patio has a tile pattern with a circular brick design installed using a concrete stencil. Then the concrete was colored with a concrete stain. Like I said, the possibilities are endless when you use concrete!

Is concrete the best patio material to use?

In my honest opinion, Yes!

Not just because I'm in the concrete business.

But because half of the people that call me to install a concrete patio already have one made of:

  • Wood - usually rotted out or splintered & faded color
  • Pavers - always seem to move and need re-adjusting
  • Stone - hard to keep clean and can't shovel in the winter
  • Grass or Dirt - not really considered patios are they?

That they want to replace for just those reasons.

If done right, and let me stress "done right" concrete will last for 30 or more years with just some simple maintenance.

Some great qualities of concrete are:

  • Durable - concrete is very strong, will withstand harsh weather
  • Versatile - As you can see above, many designs are possible
  • Less maintenance - clean and re-seal once every year or two
  • Environmentally friendlier - don't have to re-stain or paint, or cut down trees for lumber
  • Better long term value - do it once "right" and it's done, will add more value to your home.


Still need help deciding!
