6 Pavers to Accent your Central Illinois Driveway
Nowadays, a driveway is more than a purely functional surface, instead it can form a paved centerpiece that can boost your curb appeal and increase the value of your Illinois home. One way to create a great first impression of your home is by adding borders and accents in contrasting or complementary colors and textures. Here are some excellent accent pavers offered by Unilock:
As part of the EnduraColorPlus Architectural Finishes line, Umbriano pavers are highly resistant to fading under UV light, which is important because driveways tend to be continuously exposed to sunlight. This finish blends granite and quartz with color pigments that guarantee the paver’s color durability and extreme weather resistance. Umbriano pavers have an ultra-realistic surface texture that resembles the natural appearance of granite.
Umbriano pavers are available in five colors, offering the ideal palette for accenting your driveway. The shade of Autumn Sunset gives warmth to the space, while the dark shade of Midnight Sky creates a bold appearance and complements lighter colors that may be present in the landscape. Other shades include the neutral shade of Summer Wheat, Winter Marvel, and French Grey, which are all compatible with any landscape style.

This beautiful paver recreates the appearance of brick pavers used in Old Europe. With Copthorne, you get the best of both worlds; an indestructible paver that will not split, crack or fade, and unique accent pieces that will highlight the style of your driveway. Because of its timeworn appearance and wide color palette, Copthorne pavers allow you to get creative with your driveway design.
Copthorne pavers are available in four color variations: the dark charcoal of Basalt, and a versatile range of warm shades, including Burgundy Red, Burnt Clay, and Old Oak. Copthorne is the ultimate accent paver as it can be easily merged with both warm and cool tones in different patterns to create striking contrast.
Courtstone from Unilock is another paver that will bring out the Old European look of your driveway design. Courtstone pavers give you the classic cobbled appearance, while adding strength and structure to your driveway. Courtstone is available in five different sizes and four color variations, allowing the integration of more than one shade into the driveway. The shade of Basalt and Belgian Blue are perfect for accentuating the colors of surrounding pavers, especially when combined with sandy tones like the Autumn Sunset variation of Umbriano. The blend of Pebble Taupe and Dawn Mist are perfect for accenting, creating an ideal mix of cool and warm shades.
With a brushed surface texture and vibrant color options, Il Campo creates a driveway design that showcases both bold and delicate details. Il Campo comes in three shades: Coffee Creek; a blend of earthy and blue tones, dark grey Granite, and a warm Heritage Brown. Combined with randomized laying patterns, this paver adds a sense of indoor elegance to both contemporary and traditional styled driveways.
This versatile paver offers timeless warmth and a relaxed appearance, perfect for creating borders against more dramatic shades. For a subtle look, consider the shades of Sandstone and Terra Cotta. To create a bolder look, the cooler colors of Limestone, New York Blend, and Sierra are ideal. Brussels Block gives your driveway a classic, stylish look that is sure to complement the architectural style of your home.
