Your Driveway isn't just a functional piece of your property. It can also be an eye catching design to your landscape
The options for how to design your driveway have come a long way from the standard grey concrete, with coloured concrete growing in popularity.
With plenty of different colours to choose from, and its ability to be stamped with designs, it has become the choice for people who are looking for an affordable alternative to honed and exposed aggregate concrete applications.

How to Select the Right Coloured Concrete for Your Driveway
Thinking about coloured concrete for your driveway? Here are a few questions and tips before you decide on the right colour for your concrete project.
Use More Then One Colour of Concrete
Rather than using the same colour for your driveway and pathways, why not break them up with complimentary concrete colours?
The use of the same colour can create an ordinary look, whereas using multiple colours to break up your driveway can add depth and style. This also works great if you have a very large, long driveway!
Choose a Colour That Will Stand the Test of Time
While you may be inclined to choose a colour that is popular now, is it going to be a popular in 5 years time?
When selecting the colour of your concrete make sure you are selecting a pigment that you are going to enjoy now and for years to come. Because unlike paint, concrete is a lot more difficult (and expensive) to change later.
Is Your Driveway in the Sun?
If your driveway gets a lot of sun, go with a lighter over darker colours for your concrete. Concrete is known for absorbing heat, and with our harsh Perth climate, it can make it uncomfortable to walk across.
We recommend choosing vivid, not dark tones that will make it pop the sun, rather than wash it out.
Want to match the rest of your house?
Make sure to choose complimentary colours to the style and colour of your home exterior, rather than ones that match.
For example, if your home is a new contemporary style home that is painted a blue shade, look at softer grey tones or even a cream colour to make your outdoor space more eye catching.
