Choose the Right Colour Concrete Driveway With Cobblecrete

22 Dec 2021

When it comes to coloured concrete driveways, it’s essential that you know how your options can impact the appeal of your imprinted concrete. There are many factors to consider when making this choice, but luckily the team here at Cobblecrete are here to help!

It’s natural that you want your new coloured concrete driveway to fit the rest of your house and its surrounding areas. You also want your new driveway to make a statement – one that says, ‘look at me. I am pristine.’ Exactly how you get there though is different for different people.

Some homeowners prefer the type of driveway that almost disappears into the road and landscape – almost as though it’s a part of the road itself. Other people would like a driveway that represents them as people, one that marks a definite demarcation between the road and the driveway. No doubt, the best option for both is a coloured concrete driveway.

Coloured concrete driveways can be both conservative and provocative. They can help personalise your space and help your driveway blend into the surroundings.

We know that a suitably coloured, brand new and maintained driveway adds curb appeal to your property, but how much value does a replenished driveway actually add to your home? According to Property Price Advice, a property’s driveway can add between 5-10% to the value. So, it’s crucial to get it right!

In order to help you choose the right colour for your new imprinted concrete driveway, we’ve put together this short article.

Coloured Concrete Driveway Options

Buff Driveways

With a buff coloured concrete driveway, you’ll have a golden-yellow coloured driveway that stands out compared to the more traditional charcoal or grey roads. It looks fantastic in summer where the colour’s close proximity to white means that it can reflect a lot of sunlight upwards. Plus, during winter months, this quality can help increase visibility when sunlight is low.

Red Driveways

There are many benefits to choosing a red coloured driveway, one being that it is another colour that stands out in contrast to charcoal and grey coloured roads that you’re likely to see around your home. Red is also a much more conservative colour compared to the Buff, meaning it’s a colour that tends to blend into most surrounding areas far easier.

This means that if you want your coloured cement driveway to blend in with the larger neighbourhood, or if you have to get any changes made to your property approved by a homeowner’s association, red is a great colour to choose.

Earth-tone colours for your driveways such as red, buff, and brown are very popular colour choices for concrete driveways due to them blending in so well with the landscape of many residential properties. It’s also important to note that red or darker toned shades hide stains, dirt and tire marks so you’ll be able to keep your coloured concrete driveway looking fresher for much longer.

Grey Driveways

Grey is a great colour to choose for your coloured concrete driveway if you are looking for the most conservative choice. Not only does a grey driveway blend in very well with the road system, which is mostly grey, but it will also complement your house. As a result, grey really is a great colour to choose for your driveway.

Because grey is a clear mix between black and white, you can easily make its neutrality work with most properties and surrounding colours. Grey and similar driveway colours like silver and charcoal give off a more natural appearance and usually work well with a property built with stone or brick.

Charcoal Driveways

Your final choice of colour for your concrete driveway from Cobblecrete is charcoal. Charcoal is, like grey, an extremely conservative choice that offers your property a smart and professional look. As a sought-after and contemporary colour, charcoal will help to blend your driveway in with the wider road system. In turn, this gives your driveway a sense of ‘flowing’ out onto the road which gives your driveway a very clean appearance.

Due to this driveway colour being so dark, it’s much more likely to last and hold its value as it doesn’t show marks, scuffs or stains easily.
