Paving stones are a popular hardscaping choice among homeowners as they’re flexible and extremely durable.
Pavers can be installed to enhance the look and feel of almost any area in your outdoor living space. Design options also vary, which means you can customize patterns to what would work best with your home’s architectural theme as well as your personal preferences.
Let’s talk about how few ways how you can transform outdoor areas in your home using paving stones.
1. Driveway Makeover
Your driveway is the first thing you see when you come home. It can make or break not only your property’s curb appeal, but as well as its overall appearance. Several Southern California homeowners have already switched to paving stone for their driveway because unlike concrete, this material doesn’t crack. It’s designed to handle heavy weight and is weather-resistant too. Apart from that, paving stone driveway installation can be completed within a few days.
2. Putting up a perfect patio
Creating a perfect patio has become a necessity especially for homeowners who prefer to spend vacations at home. A simple upgrade to your patio can turn an unused spot in your yard to an outdoor recreational space. Paving stones make for a practical choice for a patio because of its longevity. Depending how you plan to use your patio, you can also install additional features such as outdoor grill or even garden ponds.
3. Elegant Steps and Walls
Your choice for your outdoor steps and walls is no longer limited to the cast-in-place concrete. To make the area more aesthetically-pleasing, you can now use stone as material. It’s important that you work with professional contractors because this process may have to involve acquiring approved permits and engineering plans.
4. Stunning Pool Decks
Interlocking concrete pavers lend an elegant appeal to pool decks. Design can be customized to work with your budget and style. Pool deck pavers are great for your outdoor living space because they are low-maintenance. In the unlikely event that a paver gets damaged, replacing the stone is easy. Your guests might not even notice that a stone has been replaced.
5. Cozy Fireplace Areas
A favorite amenity, an outdoor fireplace makes for a dramatic focal point to your yard. It adds an inviting vibe to your outdoor living space year round. Whether you’re enjoying a romantic dinner with your special someone, bonding with your family over s’mores, or relaxing the night away, a custom fireplace is sure to make spending time outdoors always a good idea.
6. Inviting Walkways
A walkway can be installed in a straight or curved path. A straight path is commonly used in formal gardens while the curved path works great in informal gardens for its natural, flowing shape. Paving stones are ideal for use in walkways as they come in varying colors and styles which you can use to match your home’s exterior. Walkways, like driveways, are the first ones guests see as they come to visit you. An elegantly-designed walkway makes for an inviting path to your home as well as other areas in your outdoor living space.
