New Concrete Patio

I just put in a concrete patio in my back yard. Basically its just a 12 X 17 concrete slab with a slight slope away from the house. My question is what do I need to do to this concrete to keep it from cracking in the future. I put in all the needed joints and everything I was just wondering if there was some type of sealer to use.

Also is there anything inexpensive I can do to make the concrete more pleasing to the eye? Paint? Some type of overlay? Thanks

You can paint it with a suitable paint. Be sure to allow sufficient time for the concrete to age before painting it. There are also stains for concrete.

Hope this helps.
