Custom Patio Project Ideas
Brick or cobblestone pavers might not be your first thought for a patio, but they are definitely a level up from the usual concrete, both in style and quality. These materials resist cracking and fading better than concrete, and they’re easier to maintain. These clients chose reclaimed vintage materials for their patios to gorgeous effect.
Antique Metropolitan Patio – Cleveland, OH
After a century in America’s historic streets, these vintage pavers have aced the test of time and retain the durability to last for many more years. Their top side is worn smooth by traffic and weather, just what you want in patio installations like this one. Reclaimed Metropolitan Pavers are a medley of true reds for a classic look.
Antique Purington Flat Patio – Fargo, ND
Less thickness and more squared-off shape are exactly what the homeowner needed for their patio installation. Purington Flats offer the legendary quality of bricks made in Illinois’ historic Purington Brickyards. The patio’s freeform shape and varied dark red colors make a natural transition to the forested surroundings.
Antique Purington Paver Patio – Minneapolis, MN
These full-size paver bricks withstood more than 100 years in America’s streets before being reclaimed to delight future property owners. Unlike any bricks made today, they provide a pleasing variegation of maroon to dark purple colors, as we can see in this pretty courtyard. The top sides are smoothed by street wear for comfortable walking.
Old Chicago Patio – Seattle, WA
The homeowner chose these softer, lighter shades of buff and pink to contrast with the emerald greens of the adjacent golf course. Reclaimed as Chicago’s vintage warehouses get torn down, many of the brick pavers are stamped with the “union made” diamond logo as testament to their quality and authenticity.
Old English Cobble Patio – Cleveland, OH
They might look like they came from a village in England, but these cobblestones were actually quarried in the New York State/Ohio area. The Medina sandstone has been prized for its strength and integrity since the 1820s. This cobblestone porch is a classic companion to the home’s wood exterior walls.
Old Tuscany Patio – Tampa, FL
What do the Italian countryside and a tropical oceanfront city have in common? While they make an intriguing contrast, they bring out the best in each other’s architectural elements. This collection offers a wide array of shades, from pinks and reds to oranges and purples, highlighted with white mortar stains.
