Paving stones are durable, stunning, and long lasting and are a lovely compliment to your garden, patio and outdoor spaces. They come in exquisite colors in both neutral and vibrant shades. There are also a variety of textures that include smooth and tumbled stones.
With such a large selection, it is easy to find the right material for your landscaping project. Here are ways you can use paving stones to improve the look and feel of your home.
1. Driveway pavers
Your driveway is one of the first things people see when they arrive to your home. A solid cement driveway can be dull and boring. A paver driveway can be beautiful and a stunning showstopper. You can instantly add curb appeal to your home with driveway pavers.
2. Paver walkway
Imagine a lovely walkway winding its way through your garden, up to your front door and around to the pool. A paver walkway creates a stunning surface that is both durable and sturdy.
3. Paver steps
You can create steps using the same material as your walkway for a cohesive and streamline appearance.
4. Paver columns
Line the entrance to your driveway with columns that house a lighting unit. This will add glamour and sophistication to your home, announcing to guests that they have arrived somewhere special.
5. Paver planter boxes
Create permanent planter boxes for your flowers or herb garden. They will be durable, stand up to inclement weather and become a lovely addition to your home.
6. Pool deck
A pavers pool deck is safer, more durable and easier to maintain than a cement or tile pool deck. Your family will enjoy hours of playing in and around the pool.
Install patio pavers to create the perfect outdoor entertaining surface. You can get extremely creative with the overall design and use contrasting colors to create patterns and shapes.
8. Paver fire pit
You can have a permanent fire pit built that is durable enough to be used year-round. This creates a cozy and romantic environment for evenings under the stars.
9. Outdoor kitchen or BBQ
Instead of having a freestanding barbeque, consider having a custom kitchen or built in BBQ out of paving stones. This customized space will go miles in creating the perfect entertainment space and will enable you to cook outside while spending time with the rest of the family and guests. Your outdoor kitchen can be as functional and beautiful as the one you have indoors when made out of paving stones.
These are some of the many ways to use paving stones in your home. They are durable, long lasting, earthquake resistant and easy to maintain. Many paver manufacturers even offer a lifetime warranty on their products.
Make spending time outdoors even more enjoyable by incorporating pavers into your landscape!
