It’s easy for homeowners to default to natural tone pavers because they blend well with surroundings.
There are so many factors to consider when choosing a paver color that it can get overwhelming pretty quickly. So we put together 4 steps you can follow to make choosing the right paver for your home a little easier.
4 Steps To Choosing A Paver Color For Your Home
1. Function Beats FashionThe first thing to look at is you’re hardscape. Is it a pool deck or a garden patio? A driveway or walkway? A few steps or a full retaining wall?
Function will play a big part on your choice, example, if you’re looking to install pavers around a pool, you’ll want to stay away from dark colors, so you don’t burn your feet.
But if you’re installing a driveway or walkway, then dark colors could look amazing.
2. Match Landscape and hardscapeNext, are you planning to change anything about your home or landscape?
Like a full home remodel, new roof, or new siding?
Knowing what those new colors and design changes will be beforehand will help make a paver color choice easier that will match and look great for years to come.
3. Look To Your RoofWhen it comes to paver color, it can be as simple as looking at the color of your roofs shingles.
If your roof is a light color, consider a lighter shade of paver, If your roof is dark or black, consider a charcoal hardscape.
When you match pavers to your roof color, you create contrast between your roof and your landscape.
4. To Be Bold or To BlendThe paver colors don’t need to match your landscape exactly, but they should blend in. That’s why it’s worth considering if you want to go bold or a blend.
This is probably your easiest choices to make, basically do you want your pavers to blend into landscape around it or do you want to go bold and standout?
