A Paver Patio Add Value and Enjoyment To Any Home

Paver PatioPavers offer a lot of flexibility when it comes to patio design. There are tons of different styles and colors to choose from, they can be used in many very interesting combinations, and it is possible to add outdoor living features that will make your patio uniquely your own. However you plan to use your paver patio, the following ideas are sure to result in a beautiful paver patio for you and your family.

Expand Capacity With A Seat Wall

A seat wall allows for more seating on your patio without adding additional furniture. It also helps turn the patio into more of an outdoor room by providing context to the space. Generally, a patio seat wall is 16”-18” high and consists of the wall itself and a capstone. It is possible to find a stackable wall system with colors and textures that will complement your brick paver selections.

Lighting Creates Atmosphere

Plan on using your paver patio at night? Add lighting to create a special atmosphere around your patio. Today’s low voltage lighting systems allow landscape light fixtures to be set in seat walls or even in the patio itself.

Using timers and light sensors will permit the lights to come on just when they are needed and turn off at a reasonable time.

Fire Pits Add A Special Glow

Want to make a memorable night? Sit around a fire with friends telling stories and roasting marshmallows. Fire pits and paver patios go hand in hand. Just as in the case of seat walls, there are plenty of materials that compliment a paver patio design in color and texture. Gas fire pits and wood burning fire pits both work well with paver patios.

Add Some Accent Pavers For Pizazz

Pavers offer many flexibilities that other materials simply do not. Use of different color and shaped pavers as edgings or accents can really set a patio off as unique. Different spaces within a patio can also be delineated with different Paver Patiopavers, creating a different feel and mood in each space.

Let’s Get Cooking

An outdoor kitchen is the ultimate entertainment feature to add to a paver patio. When designing an outdoor kitchen, one can go as simple or as fancy as one’s imagination. Grill, bar, storage and refrigerator are only a few of the options to consider. Don’t worry if a gas line is not available, outdoor kitchens can work great using propane as well.

No matter what features you decide to add to your paver patio, it will become an exceptional expansion of you home and provide years of enjoyment.
