Ranch/Rustic Concrete Style Palettes

Concrete in rich earth-tone colors and rough stonelike textures contributes to the rustic charm of ranch, farmhouse and country home styles. Using stains and dyes, it’s also possible to “antique” existing concrete and give it an aged, weathered look.

Characteristics of a Ranch Style HomeRanch homes are simple, uncomplicated one-story plans found in nearly every region of the U.S. The split level, or raised ranch, is a popular variation of the ranch style but adds a two-story unit divided at mid-height and a partially submerged basement.

Common features:

  • A floor plan that emphasizes efficient use of space

  • Sliding glass doors leading out to a patio to expand the living area

  • Minimal exterior ornamentation, aside from shutters

  • Exteriors of brick or clapboard siding

Concrete Design Ideas

  • Decorative concrete driveways and sidewalks can work wonders in boosting the curb appeal of these minimally adorned home styles.

  • For an upscale look, go with stamped or stenciled concrete in colors that complement the exterior façade.

  • For more subtlety, try a simple textured finish, such as a broom finish, framed by a decorative border.

  • In the backyard, extend the living area beyond the sliding glass doors with a decorative concrete patio.

  • Indoors, transform the full or partial basement typical of the split-level home into valuable living space, accented by stained concrete floors.
