Have you been thinking about giving your home a facelift with a new paver patio, but aren’t sure of what paving stone pattern you want? Pavers come in various colors, styles, sizes, patterns, textures, and thicknesses, so making a decision is often the hardest part of the process. Tuscany Pavers will share the top 5 paving stone design ideas for your patio:
1. Pattern Inserts
Insert a circle kit or circle design into the field or a different laying pattern into the design in order to accent an area. For example, where the patio table and chairs, BBQ island, or firepit would go is where you could insert a different pattern.
2. Accent Colors
Mixing and matching paving stone colors can add a nice finishing touch to an installation, providing a frame for your project. Say most of your new patio is made up of cream/brown pavers and then you accented the borders with blended charcoal pavers. It makes the patio feel complete.
Paving stones can be laid in two different angles: a 90-degree angle or a 45-degree angle off of any point chosen. Usually, most paving stone installations use the angle off of the point of entry of their backyard patio. However, you can use both laying patterns in the same project. There is no limit to possibilities.
4. Borders and Banding
Often, we see the use of single, double, and triple borders as well as banding. Adding decorative borders has become increasingly popular too! They can add a nice accent to any project. Borders/banding is not necessary though, especially if you are going for more of a free-flowing space.
A texture design element you can use is inserting a different texture into the border or into the overall patio pattern. Changing the textures within a project can add depth and make your project one-of-a-kind.
