Staining Concrete and Patio Tour

We built our house in 2009 and have wanted to do something with the cement floor in the patio since then. I went back and forth trying to decide whether to install tile or to get the concrete stained. We finally made the decision to stain and we love it. We hired Keefe Duhon of Concrete Revolution. He is located in South Louisiana but has worked all over the United States. He does residential and commercial work. Here are some of the before and after pictures.
This is looking at the patio in one direction before.
This is the opposite direction.
Here is Keefe doing his thing.
I love this texture overlay.
He used gray and blond stains blended. This is right after he finished.
This is the two days later. It came out beautiful!
Our furniture and accessories go perfect with the stain.
It adds warmth to our patio.
It made the patio feel like an extension of our family room.
Now it's time to relax and enjoy it!

      If you are a DIY'er it really is quite easy to do yourself. The stain can be purchased at paint stores, big box stores, etc.

      One was "Blond concrete stain" the other one was " Gray concert stain" then he blended the two stains. Concrete stain can be bought anywhere they sell paint. Home Depot , Lowe's, Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware. I don't know what it cost but my guess is you could get what you need for under one hundred dollars. That is a guess. They probably used less blond than gray just looking at the picture.

    Very pretty patio! I do however think you could warm it up a bit more if you put a patio rug under your coffee table and dining table in maybe a nice rust color to bring out the brick colors of your fireplace and tie it into your pretty design. Your so lucky to have an enclosed patio that you can entertain in no matter what the weather. I would like to ask if your grill doesn't fill your pretty room in smoke when your using it? Or do your glass panels open up when you need them to?
