Something as simple as a new paver walkway can completely transform your East Hampton, NY, home’s visual appeal by helping to establish a fresh new look. Wondering which walkway pavers to choose? Here are eight ideas.
Quaint and Charming
If you prefer to give your walkway a timeless appeal, consider smaller format pavers that would give your walkway an elegant old-world feel. Here are some top choices.
Mattoni pavers are a modern take on Roman brick. The combination of warm, earthy colors, distressed finish and a delightful slender profile can make them ideal for romantic curved walkways. They are also popular as borders and accents.
Courtstone cobblestone pavers can give your walkway a quaint vintage appeal with a well-worn sheen reminiscent of ancient old-world cobblestone streets. Their small, rounded profile makes them wonderful borders and accents. These pavers are also popular on driveways, thanks to Ultima technology, which gives these pavers up to four times the strength of poured concrete.
Copthorne pavers are classic brick pavers inspired by European street pavers for a timeless historic appearance. They are also popular as borders and accents.
Brussels Block would give your walkway a weathered look inspired by tumbled quarry stone for a relaxed feel for a warm welcome. Brussels Block pavers are also suitable for driveways and patios if you would like to create a unified look throughout your landscape. For added charm, consider Mattoni or Courtstone as border pavers.
Sleek and Modern
The modern design aesthetic tends to favor smooth, large format pavers. However, even if your walkway is narrow, large pavers can create a stunning look.
The 8”x16” Senzo pavers feature unique modern colors and linear shapes that are wonderful when laid in a classic running bond perpendicular to the direction of traffic. This would give your walkway the look of classic brick, but in a modern oversized format.
Beacon Hill Smooth pavers could be the best of both worlds: a beautiful flagstone-inspired look but in a larger format and a smooth finish. The six blended colors complement any home as well as the landscape. Beacon Hill Smooth pavers are sold in a random bundle of varied shapes and sizes, to give your walkway an interesting and dynamic look.
Thornbury pavers are inspired by natural flagstone and feature a dramatic texture that looks stunning in the low light of early morning or late afternoon. The smaller sizes (sold in a random bundle of several sizes and shapes) could add a lot of textural interest to your walkway. Thornbury pavers can be installed as permeable pavers, which would help keep your walkway drier and safer in winter. Installed as permeable, these pavers are separated by slightly larger joint spaces to enable water to flow through.Thornbury pavers are also a popular choice for driveways if you would like to create a cohesive look between your driveway and walkway.
Fun and Trendy
Adding a whimsical touch to your walkway could be just what your landscape needs. The Hex Paver features a delightful hexagonal shape that is also suitable for driveways. Available in three different finishes, you could mix and match for a unique look or keep the look more consistent by choosing one finish throughout your walkway.
