This is by no means a complete list of available styles, but it does comprise the most requested textures. The picture above shows a seamless granite pattern being applied to a backyard patio.

To keep the stamps from sticking, a release powder is broadcast over the wet concrete surface and then applied to the stamp before laying it down. Texture is applied to the border areas first, and then stamping can begin. The patterns lay flush against each other and downward pressure is applied. This is how stamped concrete patterns are created.

Wood plank stamped concrete pattern

#3 Wood Plank

The wooden plank pattern is a great way to build decking that lasts longer than any timber could. The most popular uses of this stamp are for pool decks, porches and even storefronts. The stains available really make this surface look like living wood when done just right.

Random stone stamped concrete pattern

#4 Random Stone

Random stone can have several variations including the river rock style. The stones are even less angular than flagstone and look more roughly cut, or rather like they were just collected from a riverbed and cut to fit perfectly with the next random stone. This pattern works well with large surfaces such as driveways.

Roman slate stamped concrete pattern

The Roman slate stamped concrete pattern is another variant of the ashlar slate. It incorporates more random sizes and more rectangular pieces, along with square ashlars. This is an old world style that makes a great choice for an intimate courtyard, patio or even walkways. The random ashlar slate surface resembles hand hewn stone that were randomly picked leftovers from a quarry.

Cobblestone stamped concrete pattern

#6 Cobblestone

The classic cobblestone stamped concrete pattern looks like hand laid pavers reminiscent of old world city streets. This pattern is most popular as a driveway surface and for sidewalks, but it makes a simple and great choice for any standard patio or porch situation.

Seamless granite stamped concrete pattern

#7 Seamless Granite

The seamless granite or stone stamped concrete patterns are the best option for someone who isn’t looking for options that include mortar joints, seams or angles.
