Choosing a color palette for your concrete pavers based on your desired aesthetic can be an intimidating experience. Here are some tips to help you narrow your choices so you can love every minute you spend in your Hopatcong, NJ, outdoor space.
Many homeowners opt for paver colors that complement the home’s roof or a stone or brick facade, since these are less likely to be changed out than siding colors. However, this is a rough guideline.
Look into taking samples home so that you can see them when they are dry, and when they are wet. Water can make pavers look considerably darker and more saturated.

The contemporary style is a broad term that includes a range of architectural styles from the 1950s to the present. Contemporary isn’t necessarily modern (which is characterized by clean lines and minimalism). The contemporary style favors more modern pavers such as Umbriano, which offers clean lines and the timeless elegance and sophistication of granite. Each Umbriano paver is unique thanks to real randomly dispersed granite particles. Umbriano pavers come in Autumn Sunset, French Grey, Midnight Sky, Summer Wheat, and Winter Marvel.
When choosing colors for a contemporary patio, consider the patio as a transitional space that joins the home and nature. Choose colors that make the patio feel as one with the surroundings: take into consideration how much light your outdoor space gets, the types of vegetation, natural features such as boulders or creeks, and whether you want a space that’s filled with vitality and fun, or a space that’s serene and soothing.
Rustic, Cabin, Cottage, and Bungalow
Rustic homes, cabins, cottages, and bungalows take inspiration from nature. Follow through with pavers that bring nature closer. Beacon Hill Flagstone is a popular option for homeowners who love the look of flagstone but want more color choices. Beacon Hill Flagstone is available in Almond Grove, Fossil, New York Blend, Sierra, Steel Mountain, and Tuscany. These blended colors give your outdoor living space an easygoing, welcoming feeling.
Many casual homes embrace the look of natural wood, while others are painted. If there is any stonework on the facade, use it as a jumping-off point for color. If there is no stonework, and the roof color doesn’t work as a patio color, look to nature! You may find any of the Beacon Hill Flagstone colors in the landscape: on tree bark, rocks, distant hills, or even the soil itself. Since rustic- and cottage-style homes feel close to nature, choose patio pavers in colors that blend into the surroundings.
