    Are you wanting to do something with the whole floor or just by the door??
    You could repaint. We had our porch floor redone with a glue down tile. The porch is not heated in winter and it has stayed very nice. We get winters to -40.

    I like the painted rug treatment, use concrete paint... https://www.pinterest.com/search/pins/?q=painted%20rug%20on%20concrete%20front%20porch&rs=typed&term_meta[]=painted%7Ctyped&term_meta[]=rug%7Ctyped&term_meta[]=on%7Ctyped&term_meta[]=concrete%7Ctyped&term_meta[]=front%7Ctyped&term_meta[]=porch%7Ctyped you can use painters tape and/or stencils for your design
    A couple nice hanging plants also make a porch look nicer. You can make your own with Dollar Tree hanging basket hardware and coco liners, soil and then add your flowers.

    You could also buy concrete stain at the hardware store. Easy to apply and not expensive.

    Hi Jackie. I'm Cindy. You could use stencils to form a nice design. Use paint made for concrete.
