Fashion Meets Function: Using Pavers in Your Home's Design

Pavers, also known as paving stones, allow you to create just about any look you want. You can place paving stones in a variety of patterns to give your space a specific style, from classic, traditional looks to asymmetrical, modern designs. Paving stones are both functional and fashionable, and the best thing about them is the many places you can put them—both in and outside the home.

Paving stones are versatile and attractive, and that's exactly why you can put them in so many areas around your home. You can find paving stones in variety of colors and sizes, so you can get creative in your designs and styles. And, since pavers are very easy to place, you can play with the pattern in almost any way you want.

Build a Dramatic Entryway

If you want to make an impression on guests right away, paving stones are a great way to do it. Put them in the entryway of your home to create the exact look you want. Suretread and Pavers come in many different colors, from bold red to soothing gray to pretty wheat, giving you plenty of design options. The entryway sets the tone for your home, so be sure to create a look that will impress your guests.

Make the Mudroom or Laundry Room Look Marvelous

Inside the home, paving stones add a natural look to any room. Place smooth surface bronze clay pavers on the floor to design a natural style that's perfect for your mudroom or laundry room. Mix and match paver colors if you want to create your own unique pattern—that way you can build a one-of-a-kind design that reflects your home's style.

Beautify the Pool and Patio Area

You don't want to walk around in mud, and neither do your guests. Paving stones are a great way to make your pool and patio areas more manageable to walk on, and still add a lot of style to your outdoor areas. Union Square paving stones look like bricks in shades of red and brown. Always fashionable in home design, brick creates a beautiful contrast beside blue pool water and the greenery around patios. These paving stones are made in earthy tones, with mottled designs that give them an all-natural look that's perfectly suited for the outdoors.

Bring Out the Best of Your Breezeway and Walkway

Walkways and breezeways are often made with poured concrete, which make them look plain and uninviting. If you want your breezeway and walkway areas to stand out, use paving stones. Cobble Brown Union Square pavers can be placed in a variety of interesting patterns and will last much longer than poured concrete. Try a basketweave or herringbone design to create walkways that will make people stop and stare, even before they take a step inside.

Get Creative with Pavers

Paving stones allow you to design any look you want for your home. Arrange them in a staggered pattern, or in straight rows for clean look. Mix and match colors and shapes for a more modern style. Stone is always fashionable, so play with different looks to create a truly unique design for your home.
