Choosing the right pavement design for your outdoor living space can be tricky and plays a significant role to improve the curb appeal of your house. We fail to realize that the driveway leading to our home is as important as our interiors and it often ends up taking a backseat. Right paver block designs can definitely play an important role in enhancing the beauty of the house.
Whether you are looking for a drive away space, for backyard, pool area, there is a large variety of paving materials, pavement designs and colours to choose from. Read more to know how you can enhance the look and add character to your homes by choosing the right pavement designs.
There is definitely no standard rule for choosing the right paver designs for your home as it all boils down to your personal preferences.
But most of us, who are building our homes for the first time may be completely clueless on where to start, what are the available options and designs. Above all, how to communicate what you are looking for to your designer.
First of all, let’s talk about some of the tips on how to come to an informed decision considering all the available choices.
Look around to gather some ideas and inspiration
We don’t realize what we want until we see it. Hence, start collecting more ideas by taking a walk or drive around the neighbourhoods, go through the home decor magazines, look for online pictures and watch YouTube videos. Save the images and you can show them to the designer for better understanding.
Consider the look you want to achieve
After collecting the ideas, ask yourself, what do you like the most? how do you want your pavements to look and feel like? Do you want a rustic look? Muted hues? Or the area to be more vibrant and colourful? Or an elegant textured and well arranged monochrome stones? Or a combination of dark and light colours?
Know what matches your home
It is not necessary that the pavers should match the home colour exactly, but it would be better to go with similar shades.
It is also a good idea to consider your roof colour, that way it helps tie together your home’s overall look.
The colour, texture and the pattern
Pavers comes in varieties of colours. Some of the widely popular colours in pavers are red, grey, charcoal, buff, black, brick red, white, yellow, green etc. You can go with monochrome, a mixture of different colours, mix and match with random colours. You can also consider contrasting your pavers with the fence, house bricks etc.
The main goal while choosing a particular texture is to have that finish, which complements the other materials used in the landscape. It could range from the aesthetics of your hardscape like smooth to drum rolled to give an aged look or an old world feel. Some pavers give the look of a natural cut stone. Some of the newly developed pavers have several joints, making it appear like multiple smaller pieces.
Typically, there’s a particular look and feel that you want to achieve in an area, that can be successfully achieved by the laying pattern of the pavement surface.
Paver patterns are highly similar to the brick patterns and other coloured concrete products. Pavers can be laid in varying patterns like circular, neatly stacked, fan shaped, running bond, or that resembling basket weave etc.
Some of the perfect paver block designs in India to consider for your home,
- Concrete paver blocks
One of the common option as it provides a hard surface which is aesthetically pleasing, comfortable to walk on, and are extremely durable.
These blocks lock into each other like the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle which makes them easy to install without a mortar. It is very easy to remove these blocks and reinstall in case of underground cable or pipe works.
- Brick pavers
Brick pavers are the most environment-friendly option, unlike stone which involves large scale quarrying and freightage. They allow rainwater to permeate into the ground. However, brick can be fragile and prone to breakage.
- Natural stones
Natural stones are more expensive than bricks and concretes. Some of the most commonly used stone materials in India are,
- Natural sandstone
- Kota stones
- Tiles with grass infills
If you are a nature person then you should definitely go with this option. Blending concrete stones and other materials with soft grass is definitely a visual treat to the eyes and guaranteed to bring a sense of relaxation, high aesthetic value and also helps to recharge groundwater effectively.
