Changing the appearance of an outdoor concrete patio has never been more exciting. Thanks to top-of-the-line products like SunAcid, Tuscan, and SunStone, you can create an entirely different look and feel in your outdoor living space. Instead of spending time indoors, whether alone or with family and friends, you will find any excuse to enjoy your patio space outside.

When it comes to concrete patios, new trends emerge every year. Although you have the freedom to come up with whatever you want, if you prefer to stay up to date on designs, it is worth learning what 2018 offers. By making the appropriate changes, you will have an outdoor space that not only looks stunning but also will provide years of flawless service while enhancing the style of your home.

One trend this year is a concrete patio space that has more of a rustic flavor, kind of a downhome look and feel. Instead of choosing lighter colors, consider darker hues and earth tones. With a broad range of deeper color choices and a marbled effect, SunAcid is a perfect solution. Because this product penetrates, it permanently changes the color of the concrete as opposed to just the surface.

Customization is another hot trend this year, which is why so many people love the Tuscan decorative concrete overlay. With this product, a skilled artisan hand-trowels the application over an existing surface. Using different coloring and texturing techniques, you will end up with a one-of-a-kind outdoor living space. As a result, everyone will want to come to your house for barbecues, pool parties, and other gatherings.

The installation of limestone is another huge trend for 2018. However, considering the financial investment, along with the mess and time required to rip out your current concrete patio to replace it, that material is often too challenging. Fortunately, you can get the same look by using SunStone, which is an architectural limestone overlay. The expert installs this on top of existing concrete; when it is finished, everyone will think you had quarried limestone installed.
