Your house is your palace. You don’t have to be royalty to want to feel like you are living in luxury in your own home. However, the interior features that are important to you sometimes take precedence over the exterior upkeep when it comes to your house maintenance.
When it comes to home design, the driveway offers a unique opportunity to make a statement that sets your home apart from all the others on your block. It is a way to create a signature look, compliment your existing decor, and give a facelift to your entire property. The driveway is no longer just a place to park a car. It is a space that welcomes you and your neighbors into your life, home, and hearth. And if the home is where the heart is, the driveway is like a pathway to the center of your world, where your family can rendezvous for every adventure.
From gorgeous pavers to classic bricks, concrete to gravel, the materials used to renovate or install your driveway give you a chance to show your artistic side and accent your home with more than just a concrete pad to park an RV. Whether you have a short pad in front of your garage for a driveway or a sprawling circular drive that takes you right to your front door, these trends will make you rethink the idea that a driveway is merely a place that connects your home to the street access.
Brick pavers: Brick pavers offer a traditional, classic look for your driveway. They are highly stained resistant compared to concrete and offer some anti-slip surfaces for wet or icy conditions.
Permeable or grass jointed pavers: If you have drainage problems, using permeable pavers and allowing grass to grow in between them is a great way to ensure that your home driveway stays looking great with greenery and also stays safe from frozen or flooding water.
Cobblestone: As an alternative to concrete, stone tiles make for a modern, but natural look. They are highly durable and aesthetically more pleasing than asphalt.
Gravel: Pebbles or small crushed gravel works well for driveways, especially level, flat surfaces that will not suffer from erosion. You can also combine a little gravel into a permeable design with a strip of grass or sod to break up the look of gravel. Pebble driveways are excellent for drainage and different colors of rock are available to dress up the look to match your home exterior decor.
Concrete: The best thing about concrete is its ability to withstand huge weight loads. It is the strongest, most durable choice for RV pads, boat pads, and driveways that have to stand up to dynamic weather.
No matter what kind of style you love the most, always choose what will last the longest for your climate region, handle your weight requirements, and consider what kind of greenery you want to include in the design. Lining your driveway with some lovely bushes, trees, or permeable pavers will help you brighten up any look.
