1. Cozy Up Inside With A Faux Stone Fireplace & Walls
Create a stunning stone cabin feel inside your living room or B&B common area. Lightweight concrete wall overlays allow you to go vertical and resurface all kinds of walls, from existing concrete and masonry to wood, plaster, and drywall.
Use decorative wall stamps or hand-carving techniques to create cozy and realistic stone-like fireplaces, walls, and flooring.
2. Transform Your Pool Deck With Textured Cement
If your existing deck has minor cosmetic damage, or you just want to change its look and feel, consider using a textured overlay for your pool deck makeover. Create the look of brick, natural stone tile, or even wood. Finishing your project with a non-slip epoxy coating will help increase safety and protect your deck for years to come.
3. Create A Spa-like Experience In Your Bathroom
Whether you own a spa or want to create a spa-like atmosphere at home, incorporating concrete overlay into your design will help keep costs down without sacrificing elegance or style. Go vertical with faux stone that looks like natural cobblestone, limestone, brick, or slate.
Create a rustic look that is non-porous, sealed, and easy to keep clean so that you don’t have to worry about mold growth or scrubbing grout.
4. Relax With Friends On A Stamped Overlay Patio
Beautiful and durable stamped cement is an ideal option for redoing your patio. Get the look of wood without worrying about termites or splinters, or go for a high-end stone or brick appearance — the choice is yours.
5. Redo Your Driveway Or Walkways To Add Curb Appeal
Are you tired of your plain cement driveway or walkways? Redo them in style, adding value and curb appeal to your home. If your existing hardscapes have minor surface damage, you may be able to give them a makeover without tearing them out.
The vast array of stained and stamped decorative concrete options available today allow you practically unlimited design and color choices.
6. Refinish Your Countertops With Stylish Terrazzo
If you’re bored with your old laminate or tile kitchen or bathroom countertops and backsplashes, why not give them a cement overlay makeover? Crushed glass, quartz, or granite aggregates are available in a dazzling range of colors and textures, allowing you to create a one-of-a-kind home decor.
7. Resurface Your Garage Floor
Garage floors take more of a beating than any other area of the house. Cleaning and resurfacing your old slab could be as simple as installing a plain concrete overlay to hide imperfections.
Or, turn your garage into an extension of your home’s living space by adding an attractive and colorful epoxy coating.
