DIY Cement Patio Painted Tiles

The first thing you need to do is prepare your patio for the painting process. You have to clean the concrete surface thoroughly with a degreaser. This will remove any unwanted dirt from the cement surface and make it more porous, which will allow it to absorb the paint better.

Once the patio is fully dry you can start painting. For this particular occasion, it’s best to use porch and floor paint as it is water-resistant which is something you need when painting an uncovered outdoor space.

The paint will need approximately a day to fully dry out. Once it’s fully set, take some tape and start outlining the triangular shapes. You’ll have to measure your patio beforehand in order to calculate how many segments you’ll have to create. If your patio is rectangular, it’s best to tape it in rows of squares and create the pattern within each row.

The geometrical pattern is created by first painting the triangles on every other row and every other square. For example, if you have 8 rows in total you are going to paint triangles on rows 2,4,6, and 8. In order to make the triangles touch, tape off the diagonal and vertical tape lines and only leave the horizontal ones which mark the border of each row. Then add new vertical and diagonal lines on the rows that were left empty and fill in the mirrored triangles.

Once everything is dry you can take off all the tape. If there are any uneven spots you can fix them up with a painting brush. Finish off the decoration of your patio by adding some greenery. Since your flooring is the accent of your outdoor space you don’t need overbearing furniture, so opt for something simple and timeless like this small white metal dining table.
