Paving Ideas for Driveways

When decorating your home, it is easy to forget about your driveway! But it’s important to remember that the path leading up to your house is often the first thing people will notice when they come to visit.  

As well as giving a good first impression of your home, having a well-maintained driveway can add a surprising amount of value to your property. According to Virgin Money, having an attractive driveway can add between 5 and 10 percent to the value of your home—potentially an extra £23,000, based on the UK’s current average house price.

So if your driveway is looking a little disheveled and unloved, then let us take you through a range of stunning paving options to help get the front of your home in tip-top condition:

Natural Stone Block Paving

Natural stone is one of our favourite paving options. If you’re looking to create a durable and attractive driveway, our very own Landscape World Natural Stone Block Paving would look great outside both modern and traditional homes. The Tatton version comes in a beautiful grey colour, but the Dunham version is equally lovely with it’s warm, autumnal shades.

Permeable Paving

Good for minimising flooding and managing rainfall, investing in a permeable driveway is the ideal long-term solution. With its classic look and practical drainage system, the Brett Omega Flow Permeable Block Paving is a great choice, particularly if you’re looking to add a unique selling point to your home. With four colours available, it’s definitely worth checking out.

Manufactured Block Paving

If you want a smooth finish, then a driveway made from manufactured block paving could what you’re looking for. The Bradstone Stonemaster Block Paving is fantastic choice. Modern and versatile, it has both ‘single size’ and ‘mixed size’ options available, which allow you to create patterns and borders according to your own style and preference. Available in light grey, mid grey and dark grey, we recommend mixing it up and choosing all three colours to create the perfect driveway.

Add a Kerb

As well as paving, you could always consider getting a kerb to add a distinctive edge to your driveway. The Plaspave Large Kerb would match most pavings, particularly as there are four colour options to choose from. Both practical and attractive, it could be the finishing touch your driveway has been waiting for.
