Concrete pavers are a popular patio building choice because of their versatility, durability, and appearance. However, it can be difficult to make a project unique. Below are some easy tips to help homeowners get the biggest benefit out of their Pavestone Brick Paving.

Consider the Home’s Style

The chosen style of pavers should complement the home’s style and theme. A modern home typically emphasizes clean, ordered lines and shapes, and a large, smooth slate patio can provide the ideal counterpoint to modern architecture. Likewise, a traditional style home can be paired with brick or cobblestone pavers.


A border can bring out the color in a project’s main pavers by introducing complementary or contrasting tones. Dark clay, for instance, is a perfect complement to a bluish or gray paver, while a dark granite paver can be paired nicely with a silver tone border. Strong borders can combine different paver styles to create visual interest and color variation.


Homeowners can highlight various aspects of the property or its hardscaping by adding accents to main paving. Colors matching those of the home’s exterior can be used to accentuate features such as fire pits or countertops, providing a unified design. Other ideas include bringing color elements of the home’s furnishings or roof in when choosing a paver color. Well-placed accents can extend the home’s color palette into outdoor spaces, or they can tie together the color themes of the garden and hardscaping.

Joining Sand

Visual interest can be created with colored joining compounds. A paver design with wide gaps can enhance the laying pattern, while a smaller gap creates a smoother overall look. Emphasizing jointing may create an illusion of small space by halting the viewer’s eye, and this strategy works best to break up larger areas. Smoother surfaces offer the illusion of greater size, which is ideal for small patios and outdoor living spaces.
