There are lots of new reasons to fall in love with red pavers!
In the old days, red pavers were made from locally quarried clays and tended to be terracotta or a monochromatic red in colour. It was certainly a case of a red paver being a red paver, with very little (if any!) variation.
So how has the humble red paver changed?
It’s all about choice – and tonnes of it. The red pavers of today are so much more than just red. We now see really interesting tones like ochres, bronzes and copper, plus blends that feature subtle sunset pastels and even purple and blue oxides. Plus, if we then count in all the sizes, shapes and textures that are now available, you start to get an idea of just how far red pavers have come! But that’s not to say the days of the classic red paver is over… far from it!
How do you choose your red pavers?
Let’s say it’s really up to you, and of course your landscape. That might sound too simplistic, but you know your house and the look you’re after. You may want red pavers to simply match an existing look, or create whole new one. You may want to go very traditional or maybe want to subtly nod the past with a more contemporary theme – or go right out there with a totally individual look. Whatever your inspiration, you can be sure we have a red paver for you.
We have the range so you can have the choice.
