However, if you have a more creative side within you, other interesting patterns can be also achieved. Remember, with patterns you can be as creative or simple as you want. You can even select 2 to 4 paver shapes and size for those unusual and unique pattern and design you desire.

The overall outlook of your paved area will depend on the pattern you have chosen. It is recommended that when paving stones are applied to large areas a smaller shape paver should be used, as this pattern will visually appear to look bigger. With smaller paved areas a larger shape paver should be used, as the pattern will project the area to look bigger than it really is.
