The driveway is the most eye-catching part of a landscape. Why? Because it starts from the street all the way to the garage. In the past, the driveway is where luxurious carriages drive past to be admired and to be welcomed. Nowadays, a concrete driveway still signifies the arrival experience. It should look extraordinarily pleasant to make the arrival delightful and memorable. Decorative concrete driveways can do that and more. Why settle for a plain concrete or asphalt driveway to greet you when the entry and exit can be a lot more graceful?
Decorative Concrete Driveway Solutions
There are many driveway designs that could make a good first and lasting impression. It does not even have to involve natural stone, pavers, or brick to make it happen. Here are the coolest yet most affordable options:
Stamped Concrete Overlay – This is applied to an existing concrete slab and then patterns are imprinted on it using stamp mats. There is a wide selection of patterns to choose from, such as ashlar, brick, herringbone, fan, natural stone, and more. The stamped patterns can be further enhanced with the addition of concrete stains, especially with natural stone patterns like flagstone, slate, and cobblestone.
Acrylic Cement Coating – This spray-on acrylic is ideal for driveways because it creates a stucco-like texture that improves tire traction. The troweled concrete finish is also known for staying 30% cooler than most paving materials. It makes issues like hot tire pickup easier to prevent.
Driveway Resurfacing Vs. New Driveway Installation
Concrete is, no doubt, one of the best driveway materials. But why opt for a resurfacing over a complete concrete overhaul? First of all, new driveway costs can be quite expensive. Think about the bags of cement and labor involved. Resurfacing the driveway costs less because it makes use of the existing concrete slab. Reusing the old concrete also helps reduce carbon footprint and concrete waste in the landfill. Aesthetically, the design and color selection with resurfacing is wider and more versatile.

I used Miami Concrete Artisans to do my pool deck area and they were amazing! Not only were they helpful in showing samples, colors etc… they were extremely organized and beyond efficient! I plan on using them in the future for more projects! I would highly recommend this company!
Miami Concrete Artisans were a pleasure to work with. From the beginning of the process (project review, bid estimate, contract) to the final step (sealing my new porch and walkway), the team was courteous, professional, accommodating and thorough. Other than the weather prolonging the process, everything happened in order, as stated and without problems. I love my new walkway/porch and would recommend MCA to everyone!
