Finding design ideas and searching for patterns, styles, and colors for an upcoming project can be quite time consuming. Often it includes subscribing to design magazines and scouring each issue hoping to come away with one good photo or idea. It also may include visiting numerous retail outlets looking for samples, contacting manufacturers for brochures, or wasting hours online at irrelevant Web sites. Now, readers interested in finding ideas for decorative concrete work, including textures, patterns, colors and styles, can go online to The Concrete Network, the largest and most comprehensive source for concrete information.
