When crafting the perfect aesthetic for your home, remember that the exterior is just as important as the interior. Paving stones are a beautiful and increasingly popular alternative to concrete or asphalt. More than eye and curb appeal, paving stones can be used inside and out to create a beautiful aesthetic that is more durable, easier to maintain, and less costly to repair than slabs. Best of all, the design options are virtually unlimited.

If you’re ready to take your home’s visual appeal to the next level, check out these popular paving stone options that can enhance nearly any area of your home.


Brick has been around for thousands of years, and for good reason. It’s beautiful, durable, environmentally friendly, and energy efficient. Brick pavers give your home a classic look that will last for years to come. These are also quick and easy to install, and simple to maintain. If you’re looking for a classic style that won’t fade, brick is an excellent choice.


If you’ve ever been to a historic town, chances are you’ve walked or driven on cobblestone streets. These durable pavers stand the stand the test of time and can easily last decades. They also repel stains and age beautifully. Cobblestone is an excellent complement any home and provides unique curb appeal.


Concrete isn’t just for slabs! If you love the look and durability of concrete, but want something more creative, consider concrete pavers. These economical paving stones add visual appeal without breaking the bank. They are also excellent options for homes that are exposed to extreme weather, because they are less likely to crack when the temperature drops.


Naturally moisture-resistant and non-slip, flagstone is an excellent option for gardens and poolside patios. Flagstone shares many of the same properties as concrete - durable, versatile, low maintenance - but its color and shape lends natural beauty to any area. If you prefer rugged beauty and earthy aesthetics, flagstone is your best choice.


Looking for something off the beaten path? Consider rubber paving stones, which are typically made from recycled tired. These unique stones are extremely durable, provide excellent traction, and are naturally sound-proof. Best of all, they aren’t affected by extreme temps and weather  like stone, brick, or concrete. They are quite common on playgrounds, but can be used anywhere you need flooring - even indoors! In fact, they are excellent for high-traffic areas because of their durability.

Paving stones are beautiful way to enhance your exterior and add value to your home, both inside and out. If you want to know more about the benefits of paving stones, let us know. We can help you design the perfect option for your area.

I like how you mentioned the reason why brick has been around for so long is that it's beautiful, durable, environmentally friendly, and energy-efficient. I'm thinking of looking for brick pavers because my wife and I are considering changing our driveway material from concrete to bricks since we want to add more curb appeal to our home. I think it's a good idea to consider hiring a reputable professional that can lay the bricks in a nice pattern to make our driveway look as best as possible.
