Add Visual Interest to Your Concrete With Stamped Patterns

Concrete stamps mesh the long-lasting durability of cured concrete with the look and feel of brick, stone, and wood. Stamped patterns can also be used to add striking visual effects to concrete floors, kitchen countertops, patios, walkways, pool decks, and more.

And because there’s a nearly unlimited palette of colors, patterns, and sizes to choose from, it’s easy to create a design that’s unique to your stylistic preferences.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common stamps used for DIY concrete projects.

Common Concrete Stamp Patterns

The most common stamped patterns used for DIY projects are stone, brick, and wood.


You can use lightweight, flexible stamped concrete designs to create the appearance of natural stone types like:

  • Appalachian Flagstone
  • Castle Stone
  • English Riverstone
  • European Fan
  • Fox Valley Flagstone
  • London Cobble
  • Mesa Random Stone

Other trending, attractive options include Old English Cobblestone, Orchard Stone, Patio Stone, Roman Cobble, Random Stone, Stones Of Athens, Tetra Stone, and Verona Stone.


With proper usage, polyurethane concrete stamp designs allow you to effectively mimic the appearance of various brick styles, including California Weave, Herringbone Used Brick, New England Basketweave, Octagon Tile, and Running Bond New Brick.


Some of the most popular wood patterns include:

  • 6-Foot x 8-Foot Weathered Wood Plank
  • Gilpin’s Falls Bridge Plank
  • Cedar Wood Plank
  • Timber End Grain
  • Ozark Barnwood

When applied according to directions, these patterns can look and even feel like natural wood. Plus, the treated surfaces have the enduring stability of concrete. A definitive win-win!

Personalize With Decorative Stamps

Imprinting decorative stamped patterns into concrete during finishing is a straightforward process that offers beautiful results. Most decorative concrete stamps are manufactured with completely reusable urethane and designed for years of repetitive use. They’re perfect for creating intriguing and unusual effects!
