Concrete steps - Dressing up

I have some concrete steps that lead up to my front door that I would like to "enhance". They are solid and clean but unattractive.

I have gotten some suggestions by way of installing some brick or stone veneer on the sides and risers. This sounds good but I am looking at all options (preferably DYI).

I am struggling, as well, with the steps and porch tops. Can flagstone be put on? Slate? Veneers? I can go up about and inch to inch and 1/2 but not much more than that.

Any ideas would be MUCH appreciated!

I saw two neighbours doing two different ways: one put flagstones all over, one put tiles with pattern similar to stone but in fact tiles all over.. My wife said the latter is better. The latter is also definitely easier for DIY as cutting tiles is piece of cake comparing to cutting flagstones... I intend to do the same as latter as my wife is the boss, and she has better taste than me over all... I couldn't locate the place selling those tiles yet, HD doesn't carry it..
