Flagstone- and Bluestone-Inspired Pavers

Pavers that mimic the look of flagstone (typically reddish or buff) or its blue/gray cousin, bluestone, pair very well with stone or wood-sided homes. Flagstone-inspired patio pavers echo a rustic home’s easy-going character, especially if they are installed in an ashlar laying pattern that gives the space a more natural and “handmade” appeal.

With bluestone-inspired pavers, you could get the most wow factor by blending two or three of the available colors randomly onsite. Bluestone has so much character and individuality that using just one paver color won’t come quite close enough to the delightful randomness of bluestone. But by varying colors, you’ll never see a repeating pattern, and that will make the space feel just as unique as a natural bluestone patio.

The Look of Brick

It’s hard to beat the warmth of brick, which goes so well with rustic homes. After all, brick has been used for millennia all over the world, and there’s perhaps no other material that pairs so well with any architectural style. Quite simply, a brick patio says “welcome.” It’s an unfussy and durable material that looks amazing with both wood siding and stone siding.

Whether your customers prefer clay brick or concrete brick, they’ll get an outdoor space filled with charm. The secret to creating the best rustic-inspired outdoor living space is in the laying pattern and color choice. 

Some of the best laying patterns for a patio or walkway outside of a rustic home are herringbone and basketweave. And as with flagstone/bluestone pavers, you can mix two or three colors randomly on-site to achieve an incredible depth of character.  

Granite

Granite may be expensive, but there are plenty of concrete alternatives that feature the look and characteristics of this high-end stone. Granite looks best next to earth-toned homes or the classic bright white farmhouse; when it comes to brick siding, choose colors carefully to avoid a clashing look between the predominantly gray tones of granite and reddish brick.  

Plank-Style Pavers

A modern trend in pavers is the oversized plank style, which is available both in natural stone look and a wood plank look. This is an opportunity to give your customers a fresh modern feel in their outdoor living spaces without clashing with the rustic aesthetic. Plank-style pavers can be laid in a variety of patterns including herringbone.

Large Format Pavers

If the outdoor space is small, consider using large format pavers to create a more expansive look due to fewer joint lines and a consistency of color. The 24” square pavers or larger rectangular pavers in earth tones will complement a rustic home while giving it a fresh appeal.
