Coloring concrete is one of the best ways to beautify a pool deck, give it more distinction, and make the deck blend in with its surroundings. Coloring usually goes hand in hand with stamped or stenciled concrete, allowing you to precisely replicate the colors of natural stone or any other material.
The most popular methods for coloring exterior concrete are chemical stains, integral color and dry-shake hardeners. Each of these methods can be used alone or you can combine or “layer” them to create unique multi-tonal effects. Many coloring methods provide myriad shades to choose from, allowing you to pick a hue that will best complement your home, landscaping or other elements in the vicinity of the pool. Custom color matching is also possible with many products.

Concrete stains are great because they allow you to personalize your design even further. Since concrete stains are permanent and won’t wear away, it is important to choose your color choice wisely. You may want to consider a few things such as color schemes of the area and the future of the area the concrete is in (do you plan to redecorate in the future or not).
There are different types of concrete stains. They can be categorized as acid-based chemical stains and water-based stains. Acid-based chemical stains are great for providing earth tones. Water-based acrylic stains are able to provide a much broader variety of colors. Most manufacturers offer dozens of standard colors, and even metallic tints. Here, too, the different colors can be mixed, like water-based paints, to broaden your options.
