being installed in 2021

Being a stamped concrete contractor myself, I install a lot of stamped concrete patios, walkways, and pool decks.

I polled 100's of other stamped concrete installers in the U.S. and asked them to tell me their most popular patterns.

Listed below are the top 9 stamped concrete patterns all these contractors said they use the most.

Ashlar slate concrete stamp patternAshlar Slate Pattern

The pattern I used for this stamped concrete patio was Majestic Ashlar from Butterfield Colors.

I added Gull gray integral color to the mix, 1 bag per yard, and I used deep charcoal release powder.

That color combination is the one I use for a lot of different stamp patterns. It goes with just about everything!

The top 9 stamped concrete patterns with colors

#1. The most popular stamp pattern is Ashlar slate.

This is the pattern I install the most of too.

There's different sizes of Ashlar slate depending on what manufacturer the stamp contractor purchased his stamps from.

This picture has mocha brown integral color and walnut release.

#2. Wood Plank

The wood look is very popular.

You can make concrete look like wood as you can see.

Wood stamp patterns come in 6 inch, 12 inch, and 16 inches wide.

#3. Seamless Slate

This stamp pattern really highlights the slate texture.

Concrete stamped to look like slate is a good surface for all patios, walkways, and pool decks

#4. Seamless Stone

This stone texture pattern gives the concrete the look of real stone.

Another favorite of mine, I stamp a lot of concrete with this one too.

#5. Arizona Flagstone

This pattern has multiple size stones and stones with random shapes.

The uneven grout lines give the concrete the appearance of real stones.

By far the most popular of the "stone" looking patterns.

#6. Roman Slate

The slate texture is quite common. Roman slate looks good for any type of patio.

Most any of the browns and tan color combinations go well with this pattern. 

#7. Italian Slate

Another stamp pattern in the slate family with a slightly different texture.

#8. Seamless Old Granite

Old granite texture is very popular for stamping concrete stairs and steps.

The veins in this stamp pattern make it look like real granite.

A gray integral concrete color with charcoal release gets you the colors of natural granite.

Gull gray integral color with charcoal release.

#9. Random Stone

This is one of my favorites. 

Using integral color Mocha Brown with charcoal release gives you this look. 

This pattern is awesome for patios and walkways.

most popular stamp concrete patterns for wood

All these stamp patterns will make your concrete look like wood. The wood plank look is very in these days.

I like to use a brown integral color with a dark release like walnut or charcoal.

The 16 inch barnboard pattern is the one I stamp the most often. The wood grain and knots are very realistic looking. 

Wood plank stamped concrete is great for patios and interior floors.

12 inch wood plank
12 inch reclaimed timber
6 inch boardwalk
diagonal wood plank

Stamped concrete patterns being used for patios

Stamped concrete patterns for patios

There's an endless amount of patterns, designs, and colors you can use for a stamped concrete patio.

A lot of people choose some type of Ashlar slate pattern as you can see above. Patterns with borders are really popular too, but simple is good also.

Stamped concrete patterns for driveways

You can use just about any stamp pattern for a concrete driveway. 

The pattern and color of the concrete should accent the house and flow with the landscaping.

The driveways stamped with a border pattern kind of stand out to me more than the others.

Ashlar slate is great for driveways. Stone texture and slate texture patterns are also very good.

Cobblestone with grey integral color and charcoal release is very realistic looking and good for driveways too.

where to buy stamp concrete patterns

You can buy stamped concrete patterns at

When you click on the picture it'll bring you to their site so you can check out each pattern and the cost of the stamps.

You can buy individual stamps or a whole set. There's border stamps, rollers, texture mats, and all the touch up tools you'll need.

If you want to learn how to stamp concrete from me, I have a training course that teaches you all the basics of learning how to stamp patios, decks, walkways and floors.

What I recommend if you're thinking of buying a set of stamps is choose Ashlar Slate as your first set. It's by far the most popular pattern of all the stamps.

For a second choice, I would suggest a seamless slate or seamless stone texture mat. You're going to want to get at least 4 seamless mats of the texture you choose.  

If you're brand new to stamping concrete, then the seamless texture mats are the easiest to learn on.

You can also get your integral concrete color, powder release, liquid release, and stamped concrete sealer at also.

animal stamped concrete patterns

When you add an animal foot print or paw print to your stamped concrete it gives the concrete character.

These animal patterns can be added to regular concrete finishes or included with a stamped pattern.

If you live in a rural area or "out in the woods" then having some foot track in your concrete would seem pretty normal.
