For 70 years Midland Brick has been helping Western Australians build their dream homes. In fact the majority of West Australian's, born after the 2nd World War, would have grown up in a house built with Midland bricks or pavers.
Today, Midland Brick is recognised internationally for the innovation it brings to the housing industry, together with exceptional quality and range - one of the largest in Australia. And it's not just bricks and pavers. Our products now extend to retaining walls, terracotta roof tiles and Cultured Stone® cladding.
The latest news is the recently released Masterpave 50 paving range. These 200x200mm small square format concrete pavers feature simple clean lines and a smooth finish to enhance everyday living, and are perfectly priced to suit any budget. Masterpave 50 is an economy range offer complimenting best-seller Masterpave 60mm. Available in five popular colours.
Also recently released is our modern Colonnade range, which introduces a new style of large format paving reminiscent of three differently coloured travertine marbles in a 600x300mm size. Alternatively, our smaller 400x200mm Boulevard paver is perfect for today's contemporary architecture and landscape design. Boulevard comes in two contrasting finishes - smooth Classic and coarser Granite - and is available in four timeless colours each.
Why are pavers a good choice for outdoor areas in Western Australian Homes?
Well-planned paving impacts on both the look and the value of your home. With outdoor living and entertainment being such a major part of most West Australian's lifestyle it's important to consider the type of design and finishes for these outdoor areas. Colours, texture and quality of materials are so important as you plan. And pavers are probably the most cost effective and practical way to achieve the look you want.
If you're planning a patio to adjoin your main living area, choose a paver of a similar colour to the adjacent interior flooring, as co-ordination will make both spaces appear larger and provide a smooth, visual flow from inside to out.
Advice for people shopping for pavers
There are two main factors to consider when shopping for pavers: Use and looks.
You probably already have an idea of the look you want, but there are a few other considerations. It's important that you choose a paver that will give you many years of high performance and low maintenance. For example, a driveway needs at least a 60mm thick paver, whereas for a footpath or pedestrian areas only requires a 40mm thick paver - which will save you money. And then there's the difference between clay and cement, or masonry, pavers and question if that affect your choice?
It's at this stage you'll probably need some professional advice, and you'd be surprised how a little time invested, talking to with a Midland Brick Sales Advisor can save you money and challenges down the track.
Which Pavers are most popular?
Today's trend of large format pavers like our Stylestone 300 and 400, Promenade, Boulevard and Ashlar in Classic and Granite finish, will continue. There is also an emerging preference from landscapers in Perth seeking a more natural look, so clay pavers and others emulating natural stone patterns are coming into vogue.
In terms of colours, the lighter range of limestone and creams, which are so suited to our WA climate will always be popular and comfortable underfoot. Then there's charcoal and the darker colours, which are still firm favourites and designed to work with today's contemporary architecture.
