Stone Patterns for Patios

stone patterns for patios

Using stone patterns for patios is a great way to increase the visual interest of your outdoor space and can complement a garden design. In this post, we’ll look at some of the different ways this can be achieved using different stones and processes to match different budgets.

Stone Patterns for Patios Options

Making Patterns With Stone Slabs

There are countless different options when it comes to creating elaborate and attractive patterns for your patios. Generally though, this process will involve the use of one or more type of stone, made into slabs of various sizes. By taking slightly different colors, you can then arrange your tiles to create a variety of different effects and patterns. This has the advantage of being very flexible and allowing you to create a wide variety of shapes and patterns – though the process of cutting each tile to fit can be long and involved. You can even replace individual tiles.

Unfortunately, you will also need to find a way to fill the spaces between the tiles – such as with grouting.

Depending on the budget, you might choose to use particularly colorful and durable stone in this process, such as quartz or marble. That said, any type of stone will work and can still create a very attractive look.

Making Patterns With Stamped Concrete Patios

Concrete is often chosen for patios due to its durability, as well as its affordability which together make it a highly cost effective solution. Unknown to most however, concrete patio can also be fairly versatile, and there are a range of different styles and looks you can achieve with these patio stones. For example, using concrete stamping, it is possible to make your concrete patio look highly different and even like many other more expensive stones such as granite or quartz. This is possible thanks to concrete stamping, which will enable you to imprint images and shapes into your patio stones. This way, you can introduce patterns as well as shapes imprinted onto your concrete patio to create the look of smaller tiles on a single flat stone surface.

Similarly, it is also possible to have a company logo or name stamped into the concrete for promotional purposes if you own a business, or a large image if you just want to make your concrete patio more authentic looking. At the same time by using concrete staining it’s possible to alter the color of the patio stones. This means then that you can make them look more vibrant and interesting (rather than the dull grey that we associate with concrete). You can include colors in the aforementioned patterns and designs, or can attempt the look of veins or grains to try and create the appearance of another type of stone.
