Feeling like your outdoor space is looking a little... gray? The right decor can help a lot, but there's nothing quite as impactful as actually taking brush to concrete and making over the space. We collected a handful of smart ideas that can transform a porch, patio or balcony with just a can of paint (or maybe even a box of chalk, for the renters).
Give a concrete floor some interest and dimension with a subtle pattern, like the stripes here on this porch from Southern Living.
Finally, if you have the ambition and the artistic skills, you can try to paint a rug right on your concrete floor, like this Better Homes and Gardens reader did. There are more in-progress photos and some advice on BHG.com if you want to try this one for yourself.
