walkway pavers

You are about to invest a lot of time and money into the outdoor project of your dreams. You have an idea in mind. You’ve done your research. You can envision the transformation your yard will go through once your project is complete. 

Once you’ve picked the project specifications, design ideas, and style for your driveway, patio, or walkway pavers, there’s one more important decision you need to make. If you want your project to look amazing, you need to pick the right color palette. It can make or break your project. 

Choose the Right Color for Your Walkway Pavers

The first place to start when it comes to choosing your colors is to look at your home. What color palettes will complement the color schemes of your property? You can get dramatic effects when you choose a color palette that harmonizes with the architectural style and exterior color schemes of your property. 

When scanning the outside of your property, take landscaping into consideration as well. Think about how this aspect will change as the season change. Different colors express and elicit different emotions. If you’re looking for a relaxed feeling for your outdoor project, grey and light blue tones can give you a soothing or calming feeling. If you want a rustic vibe, reds or browns can do the trick.

Just like different colors create a different sense of emotion, they can also change the way things look. Lighter colors generally make space seem larger than it is. They can also brighten up a dark area. Darker tones are great for spaces that are in direct sunlight, but they can make your outdoor space seem smaller. 

Consider How Your Space Is Used

When you’re choosing your color scheme, consider how your space is being used. If you’re building a patio around your pool, lighter colors are a better choice. That’s because they reflect light and keep the area cool so you won’t burn your feet. If your project is for an outdoor kitchen, consider a darker palette. This will keep you from creating an eyesore when messy cooking leaves stains on the patio. 

Add Some Flair with Borders

If you want to add a sense of style to your project, consider using a contrasting color as a border. This will help your walkway pavers stand out! An accent or border color can add elegance. You can choose two shades of the same color family or add a completely different color that complements your main patio color to add a bold effect. 

Talk About Color Before You Choose Your Walkway Pavers

Before you decide which brand to choose, discuss your project and ideas with your mason. By deciding on a color scheme ahead of time and sharing your thoughts, they will be able to pick a brand of pavers that’ll be the best fit for your project. Many paver companies focus on innovative color trends and unique blends.

You’ll be able to look at a variety of choices before you pick the company that works right with the exact color you had in mind. Your project should reflect your unique personal style and taste. You don’t need to settle with a product that doesn’t do the job because there’s a wide variety of options on the market.
