Choosing Concrete Stain Colors
The best attribute to stained concrete is that the color is permanent and will not fade, thus making it especially important to choose the color wisely. You will want to select something that complements your current decorating scheme but that will also lend itself to a change in decor.
Picking the best color scheme will be easier if you ask yourself a few questions first: What color effect do I want to achieve?…varigated or more opaque tones, uniform tones? Is my overall design scheme rustic or modern? Will the color complement the walls or exterior of my home?
Acid-based chemical stains are more limited in their pallets than water-based stains. However, their earthy tones are well suited for accentuating the concretes natural characteristics, resulting in a rich patina, organic tone.
Water-based acrylic stains have a broad spectrum of hues. Most manufacturers offer a wide array of tones, including metallic (if you’re into that sort of thing.)
