While picking a surface material for your patio is very important, stopping there might lead to having a boring one. So to have an interesting one, here are some ways you can transform yours and raise your curb appeal, too.
In this day and age of gadgets, most children have turned away from wandering outdoors and playing physically. So why not invite them back out again by creating a hopscotch mosaic that’ll have them hopping with glee every time they see it. Just make sure your mosaic is evenly glazed over to prevent nasty cuts and bruises. Better yet, you can soften their falls by planting grasses in between the steps.
A Rainbow Pathway
While your home may not have the colorful levels Brazilian favelas have, you can recreate this wondrous spectacle on your very own pathway. Works best on a brick patio, paint each one in a different shade and you’ll have the most colorful pathway in the neighborhood. If you’re quite the artist, why not make it in a gradient style or even create cubist art? Your pathway is your canvas so let your imagination run wild.
The Collector’s Pathway
Do you have a penchant for collecting? How about create a mini-collecting project for your pathway then? Whether different discarded tiles, pebbles or stones, you’d be able to create an interesting surface for your pathway and it’ll even drive down the costs of your pathway. It’s also another sure way of getting a one-of-a-kind pathway only your neighbors can envy.
Mix and Match
If, however, you think collecting is too tiresome, why not just mix and match patio surface materials? Instead of simply picking a single material, go for two or three and mix them up to create an interesting texture for your pathway.
