Finding a Concrete Color that Suits Your House's Style

Finding a Concrete Color that Suits Your House's Style

Did you know that concrete comes in a wide range of colors and textures? At A-1 Ready Mix Concrete we offer a wide range of colored concrete in San Francisco. Read on to learn more about how to choose a concrete color that complements the look of your home.

Coastal

Airy, open houses with massive panoramic windows and outdoor living spaces characterize the coastal style. Concrete countertops and floors are popular in coastal homes because of their durability, simplicity, and low maintenance requirements. We recommend using concrete colors that are suitable to a beach, such as blue and beige. Concrete can be used to make rockscaping, flatwork, and even a fireplace.

Farmhouse

Casual, traditional farmhouse properties commonly feature shutters, a prominent porch, a steep roof, and horizontal lap siding. Warmly colored concrete suits these country-style homes best, so aim for brown-, red-, and green-colored concrete. Colored concrete that is designed to replicate stone or slate also looks attractive in farmhouse homes. Concrete floors stamped with a wood plank pattern are ideal for the living room, while concrete countertops and sinks provide a great look for little maintenance.

Bungalow

There are many variations of the bungalow home, which is also known as the craftsman-style home. But the fundamental style is one that emphasizes the craftsmanship and the widespread use of natural materials. For bungalow homes, we recommend combining different styles of stained and colored concrete. Stick with concrete color combinations that complement the interior and exterior finishes, such as slate, brick, or flagstone. Stamped and hand-sculpted vertical concrete overlays made to look like natural stone look fantastic as an accent on walls, columns, and fireplace surrounds.

English Tudor

These homes have stucco, masonry, or stone exteriors and oftentimes half-timbering. Colored concrete driveways and walkways that are made to resemble old-world materials such as aged brick and cobblestone would be a wonderful accent. Exposed aggregate in a rich color and pebble-like texture is another great way to compliment an English Tudor home. Usually the most attractive colored concrete for an English Tudor home matches the color of the roof.
