Your walkway has the important job of leading your guests to your front porch and door. It takes up space in the front of your house and is the first thing people see. Overall, your walkway makes a bold statement about the architecture of your home and your personal style. Finding the correct style and the use of landscape is a great way to jazz up your space! Many people forget their walkway and just throw down builder concrete, when it’s easy to create a walkway people remember.
If you’re thinking about giving your home a cosmetic makeover, consider these styles:
#1 Style: Flagstone Pavers
Purchase paving stones at your local hardware in different shapes, colors, and sizes. Because of this, they are beautiful and versatile; therefore, pavers are a strong contender for one of our favorite looks.
#2 Style: Brick
Brick is tried and true creating a classic strong look for your walkway. Durable brick will not require a lot of maintenance and show minimal wear and tear. Also, weather is not an obstacle for brick walkways. Bring it on! Brick can take it.
#3 Style: Stamped Concrete
Why stick with the boring builder concrete when you can go with a stamped concrete? Stamped concrete offers limitless options and creates interest with a one of a kind look.
#4 Style: Go Modern
Take the simple concrete to a whole never level by adding a modern twist. This is as easy as making smaller steps and staggering them along your path! Stones easily inlay into your yard to create a minimalistic style.
#5 Style: Outline Your Stones
Consider outlining your pavers with brick or a different type of stone. This may be done beautifully to match your driveway, as well. As a result, you are left with a cohesive design that flows from your walk to your driveway.
In conclusion, when looking to update your home’s exterior and curb appeal, don’t forget your poor concrete walkway that the builder threw down when you moved into your home. Your walkway needs some love too. Above all, it is something guests use and see everyday; therefore, your path should be intentional and functional!
