1. Make the most of color & texture
Let the wide range of hues be the driving force when developing your pavers design. Use shades that reflect the surrounding landscape or take a cue from the colors inside your home. Accent colors paired with unique paver patterns and textures can be utilized in the pavers design to help your patio space make a strong statement.
2. Create a living space in the great outdoors
The right paver patio ideas can extend your home’s living space. Consider how a custom seating area, dining area, barbecue or fire pit pavers could help to make the most of your patio area.
3. Consider multiple uses for the space
Outdoor living spaces can be some of the most versatile areas of your home. Consider the different ways you’ll be using your patio. Then select pavers and other hardscape that will make your space come together.
4. Start small
Begin you patio design with a small-scale project. A smaller space will be easier to work with and it will give you the chance to work through the process. You could even design the project to be done in smaller portions that could be completed in a day or a weekend.
5. Work with a pattern
Repeat a pattern from the architecture of the house or even from the garden in the patio design. Repeating the pattern will give the outdoor living space a flow and will work to make the different outdoor elements part of a cohesive pavers design. Pavers offer endless possibilities, with different to choose from.
6. Think outside the box
Utilize a mix of pavers to customize your look even more. Mixing the colors of one stone with the sleek design of another allows you to create a custom patio that will catch the attention of your visitors and leave you wanting to make your outdoor space your permanent residence.
7. Customize it
You can custom-design your space with the addition of personalized artwork. Using unique crafting ideas can create more than just a new living space for your patio area.
Create art right on your patio with the addition of other textures and elements. Let each family member craft individual concrete pavers to work into the design. You can transpose pictures onto pavers and then seal the pavers to preserve the design.
