Flow

Ideally there should be a flow between the style of the home’s interior and exterior. Modern styles tend to favor smoother textures and larger shapes while traditional designs tend to favor classic brick patterns

Color

Main color families typically include grays, tans, browns and reds. Pay careful attention to subtle colors in blends to make sure they work in harmony with the colors of your home. Some designers suggest going with a paver a lighter than your home so the pavers don’t compete with the homes color. Sometimes, striking a balance means going for contrast. For example, traditional brick homes tend to look better with contrasting gray pavers simply because too much red tends to be overwhelming.

Sunshine

The color of the pavers will change as sunlight hits it. Light colored pavers ten to be nice around a pool because ideally, they reflect the light and give the area more of a sunny feel. This may not be the effect you are looking for in the front of your home.

Space

Think about exteriors as extensions of your indoor living spaces. As with the rooms inside your home, different areas of your exterior serve different purposes so it’s important to consider how each area whether it be for entertaining, pool, kitchen, dining will be used.

Patterns

Patterns create interest and movement in design. They help to move the eye around a design and define an area as well. Some pavers come with preferred patterns such as Running Bond or Herringbone while others can be installed in a random fashion.

Shapes

The wide variety of paver shapes will also greatly impact your installation. Colonial homes tend to be rectangular and are nicely complimented by pavers that mirror the shape of the home.

Borders & Accents

Breaking up a space and adding accent borders and inlays in contrasting colors can help define a large space and make it feel more intimate. The larger the space, the more opportunity to combine shapes and patterns to create visual interest. Circle and fan designs are excellent ways to create unique focal points.
