Looking for advice please. My new apartment has these concrete planters on the courtyard/patio. I'm concerned they look a little unfinished. Do you think they would look better if I painted them? I know the concrete look is very much on trend but I think they look a bit ordinary at the moment. Thanks!
Lovely planters... but as the entire area appears very grey and black a pop of colour could do wonders. Even a strip of vibrant colour around each one would really brighten the area up!
Like this but bigger..
A rich fluoro yellow could really bring your courtyard to life...
I think I would paint them. Something bold could look cool. Bright red?
G'day, I would paint them, but rather than using one solid colour I would go for something different. My suggestion is that a mural type of landscape or ocean "view", to maybe give the area an open more roomy type of look. I hope you get it the way you like & give us all a look when your all done.

So you would leave them as-is @melzyd?

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I might get a few sample pots and try a few different colours.
