Amy Ogden-Paparone on Apr 18, 2018Hi K,Why not paint it and then lay an outdoor carpet on it with a pops of color bringing in whatever you decide to paint the porch? Here are a few pictures of different ideas, even if you don't like them, maybe they will give you an idea that you'll love! 1st on they painted to look like it has a runner on it, 2nd one they stenciled and the 3rd they painted it to look like slate :) Hope this helps :)Helpful Reply
Jcraw on Apr 18, 2018Is the concrete still good? If so, the sky’s the limit. You can stain it, cover with some sort of stone product, cover it with faux decking or get an interesting patio rug. Heaven knows there are hundreds of them available in multiple patterns and colors.if you need to trim one of these poly rugs to size, trim where it meets the house and seal the edge with Gorilla tape $10.In all cases you obviously need to clean it first. If it’s a bit imperfect, get an exterior concrete crack filler to discourage it from deteriorating further.Helpful Reply
