How To Choose the Right Paver Color

There are probably as many paver color options as there are types of pavers available. More popular choices include copper, adobe, mocha, charcoal, sand, stone, and pewter. Each will give your outdoor project a unique look, while increasing the functionality of your space. 

For areas that receive heavy foot traffic, such as walkways, driveways, or garden paths, choose dark-colored pavers with texture to hide dirt and debris. For front entryways or backyard patios, light-colored pavers, such as sand, cream, or terra cotta, provide an elegant appeal while absorbing less heat from the sun. 

What Paver Color Options Are Out There? 

There really is a paver for every project. There’s even a paver that mimics the look of weathered wood. So, if you’re thinking about your next outdoor project and wondering how to step it up a notch, consider using pavers. They come in a variety of attractive colors that complement¬†every exterior.¬†

Paved areas can act as framing for your curb appeal, or they can serve as a feature element. Either way, they should look nice next to your home. This means choosing a color that goes well with your exterior siding and choosing a paver that fits well with your home’s style. For example, stucco walls pair well with cobblestone pavers or with any paver that has an aged or rustic appeal, such as permeable slate. This effect is popular in the Tuscany region of Italy, and usually pairs warm, earthy tones together. If you’re hoping to create a Tuscan feel in your modern courtyard, use warm reds, browns, and tans as paver choices. Add terra cotta planters and pottery as finishing touches. 

Then again, if your home is a sleek, contemporary masterpiece of simple lines and smooth metal accents, the muted gray tones of Aqualina pavers are perfect companions. 

Pavers in earth tones and various shades of gray will always be popular choices for homeowners looking to create a stylish, yet timeless, look. Pavers that feature strong variations in color seem to be the ‘in’ thing currently. When seen from a distance, they give your outdoor space a natural, mottled appearance. Close up, the pavers are different shades from the same color family or simply different colors altogether. 

When you’re ready to begin your next outdoor project, consider the many benefits of pavers. Pavers help keep dust and mud at bay, while giving guests a dry surface to place their feet. Pavers look nice and give your outdoor landscape an upscale appeal. Finally, they’re functional and attractive additions to your flower beds and stonescaping. And when professionally installed, they may even raise the resale value of your home.
