Patio pavers allow you to spend more time outdoors, enjoying the beautiful climate changes happening all around you - all season long.
Large-scale pavers offer a smooth surface
Large-scale pavers are an excellent choice for a patio installation. There is less space in between the paver joints, allowing for a more polished feel and appearance. People who enjoy going barefoot outdoors will especially appreciate the way this smooth finish feels against the skin. Kids are sure to notice the difference when running and playing in the backyard.

Avoid steps for more space
The easiest way to create a patio area that offers a great deal of usable space for the entire family to enjoy is to minimize the installation of steps. As a rule of thumb, adding fewer steps will elongate any space, giving the appearance of just one even level. Add furniture, rugs and potted plants to make full use of your newly elongated space.
Choose the right colors
If you choose not to cover your patio, which some homeowners do not, stick with pavers that are light in color. Doing so will create a cooler space, particularly during hotter summer months when the look of your patio matters most. Darker colors, on the other hand, attract heat and can be off-putting during summer months when temperatures are high.
Create the illusion of more space
Not all patios are large. If you've opted to install a smaller size patio, your best bet for giving the illusion of a more expansive appearance is installing a wide array of multi-size stones throughout the entire patio space. Ask your pavers contractor if your chosen pavers are available in different size sets.
When transforming your backyard with a newly remodeled pavers patio, it's highly recommended that you hire a contractor who specializes in pavers installation. A professional paving company can provide you with an experienced project manager who can guide you through each of the above-mentioned points.
