Driveways are a homeowner’s chance to make a good first impression. In fact, they are most likely the first thing that a guest will notice when they pull up to your home. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that out-of-the-box driveway designs have been sweeping the industry over the past couple years. Homeowners have left behind the grey asphalt driveways of the past and embraced the standout driveway patterns and colors of the future.
This new trend is not surprising considering manufacturers like Techo-Bloc have been stepping up their game by creating unique concrete pavers with eye-catching colors, textures and scales. Our concrete pavers bring art into your outdoor experiences and ignite each and everyone’s spark for design. As outdoor trend-setters, we live to create and breathe life into the materials that will allow design lovers of all styles to transform regular spaces into stand-out-from-the-crowd statements. Need some inspiration? Check out these 8 stunning options for driveway pavers.
1. Brick inspired paver
Brick has been a part of North American architecture for centuries — you would be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy the traditional, classic, timeless feel of a brick landscape. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that many homeowners turn towards brick when thinking of a driveway renovation. Brick house, brick driveway, sounds ideal, right? In terms of aesthetics, yes. However, brick, when exposed to vehicular traffic and harsh freeze-thaw climates, can easily crack. With that mind, we at Techo-Bloc have designed a brick lookalike concrete paver that offers you the same warmth and traditional look of a classic brick driveway, but with more durability and resistance. Introducing our Mika paver! This exciting take on a new-age brick is offered in three alluring colors, offering you some creative freedom. Discover our Mika paver to channel a traditional brick driveway with guaranteed durability!
