Paint the cement green and put out fancy pots of flowers and other decorations. My parents moved into a house with a cement front yard and loved it. They never wanted grass to mow, water, fertilize, mow, water, fertilize, etc.
That is going to create a lot of extra work for you.  You can do a raised  pond or raised container beds and plant food and flowers.  Some nice chairs a table with an umbrella paint it turquoise and your in Bermuda.  If you have a fence....there are special hooks that you could do hanging baskets.  I would love a cemented yard....less work....no hurrying to get the lawnmower out....less grass...no weeds...less bugs...I would be in paridise.  Maybe some room for a small pool......a little bar & grill area......only have to hose that clean.  Less work equals more fun and free time to do something else.  You could even make a overhead trelis and grow things on it to create a cool place to lounge.  You did not mention what state but some trellis vines will grow in hugh containers.  Also they have outside rugs that look like grass...fake turf............
