Paver Patio Ideas and Expanding Paver Patios

Looking for inspiration for your new patio? Think beyond the standard circle and square designs. Here are five inspiring patio design ideas to give your backyard a unique look!

Seat walls define your outdoor living space and create accent pieces, helping to make your patio design unique. A great example is this Belgard Patio in Naperville, IL which features a Weston Wall seat wall in Cotswold Mist and Holland Stone pavers in Kensington Red.

Think you can’t have a patio because your yard is sloped? Think again! We used a retaining wall to ensure this Belgard Cambridge Cobble patio in Darien, IL would remain level for years to come. Another great benefit of a raised patio is increased usable space, giving you more room for dining or entertaining outside.

Create a more formal entrance to your yard with seat walls around the edges of your patio.

Outdoor kitchens and fire pits are perfect for entertaining. Inset circles such as this Holland Stone patio with Mega-Arbel create unique accents, especially with contrasting colors. Using fire glass in your fire pit adds an extra flair that everyone will love!

It seems almost everyone is looking for trendy smooth and curvy patios these days. Change it up with straight and symmetrical lines like this Woodridge, IL patio. The clean lines of the Belgard Lafit paver patio and crisp corners of the square built-in fire pit are eye-catching. The Charcoal Holland Stone steppers around the fire pit draw it all together for a stunning and unique patio design.

Custom patio with table, chair and close umbrella

One of the benefits of paver patios is the ability to modify or expand your patio design. Archadeck of Chicagoland designed and built a patio in Libertyville, IL for these clients one year. The next year, they decided to expand the patio and add a fire pit and grill surround.

We removed the existing soldier's course and integrated the pavers so that the patio design remained seamless. The soldier's course was replaced around the edges of the new patio and around the inset circle for definition. The finished project resulted in a beautiful and spacious area to enjoy with friends and family.
